Liposuction Surgical Details

Dr. Mehta employs advanced liposuction techniques to help you achieve your desired results. The surgery is typically performed under tumescent anesthesia, which involves the injection of a solution into the targeted area. This solution contains a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort, a vasoconstrictor to reduce bleeding, and a saline solution to facilitate fat removal.

Once the anesthesia takes effect, small incisions are made in discreet locations near the targeted areas. Through these tiny incisions, a thin cannula is inserted, which is connected to a powerful suction device. Dr. Mehta gently maneuvers the cannula beneath the skin to break up and suction out the excess fat cells. The cannula’s precise movements allow for controlled contouring and sculpting of the treatment area, ensuring smooth and natural-looking results. The procedure takes an hour or two, depending on the targeted areas.

The Recovery Process

After liposuction, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas, which is normal and temporary. During the initial phase of recovery, it is recommended to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and support the newly contoured areas. You may also be prescribed pain medication to manage any discomfort. It is crucial to follow all post-operative care guidelines provided by Dr. Mehta, including avoiding strenuous activities.

Over time, the swelling will gradually subside, and you will see improvements in your body contours. It is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, to optimize and maintain your results. Dr. Mehta will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and provide any necessary guidance during your recovery journey. By following the guidelines, you can expect a successful recovery.
