Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the face, body, arms, or legs. It is best used to address areas where fat accumulates disproportionately and to improve the aesthetics of the body contour in these areas. Men and women commonly choose liposuction to remove excess fat in the hips, thighs, belly, chest, knees, calves, and ankles as well as around the neck and under the chin. Dr. Reedy performs liposuction with the patient under general anesthesia, which is administered by a qualified anesthesia provider.
Recovery from liposuction requires patients to take several days to a week off of work, wear compression garments for 4-6 weeks, and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks while bruising and swelling subside.
