Get Rid of Stubborn Fat

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an ideal option for people who, despite their dedicated diet and exercise routines, still grapple with dissatisfaction due to stubborn pockets of excess fatty tissue in specific areas of their body. These persistent fat deposits can be attributed to various factors, including genetics and challenges in weight management. Patients choose liposuction to enhance body shape or to continue with healthy efforts. White fat tends to be stubborn, making it difficult to burn off with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a great solution for those who are in good physical shape and healthy and are looking to get rid of that stubborn fat. If maintained, the results of liposuction can be life changing to those who undergo the procedure.


Types of Liposuction We Perform

Dr. Quinn and his staff are specialized to perform many types of liposuction Kansas City locals and guests can avail themselves of. During your consultation, Dr. Quinn will examine your case and decide which method best matches with your health and needs. Some of the most common types of liposuction we perform include:

Suction Assisted

In this approach, small incisions are made in the area being treated, and a small tube is inserted into the opening and extracts the fat out of the area, leaving a precise fat removal result.

Ultrasonic Assisted

During this type of liposuction, a small device is attached to a hollow tube, causing the tube to vibrate and liquify the fat prior to it being suctioned. Regardless of which approach is best for you, Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center is ready to help you achieve your goals. Every case is treated individually and choosing a method can depend on multiple factors including body type, medical history, the amount of liposuction you need, and your expectations with this procedure.

Prepare For Your Procedure

Liposuction Preparation

For three weeks before the procedure, please avoid any smoking, alcoholic drinking, and blood thinners. Continue to eat a healthy diet and ensure that you are getting enough sleep as well. Your body needs to be at full health for a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery. The night before the procedure, be sure to shower with antibacterial soap and to refrain from eating and drinking after midnight. It is important to be comfortable on the day of the procedure, so feel free to wear clothing that you're most relaxed in.

The Liposuction Procedure

Depending on the treatment area and the type of liposuction a patient receives, the actual procedure may slightly vary. However, most of the procedures typically take around 1-2 hours. The procedure begins with either a local or general anesthesia and marking the location of the incision. Procedures take place at an outpatient surgical facility in Overland Park.

Additional Reading

The liposuction procedure starts with a small incision made in the target area. Through this incision, Dr. Quinn inserts a slender metal tube known as a cannula. This specialized tool is employed to precisely remove excess fat cells from the treatment area. Once the appropriate amount of fat has been extracted, Dr. Quinn proceeds to close the incision site. Recovery following liposuction is relatively short, but it may take some time for you to see the final results. Initially, compression garments may be used to reduce post-surgical swelling. You may also undergo processes to drain excess fluids or have medication administered as a precaution for infection. All pre and post-surgical decisions will be discussed with Dr. Quinn to ensure treatment satisfaction. Once the procedure is done, you will be wrapped in a surgical garment which will help reduce swelling and assist with healing. After we apply the bandage, you are free to go home, as long as someone takes you home.

Pricing for Liposuction

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The initial recovery period varies depending on the extent of liposuction and individual factors. Most patients can return to work within a few days to a week, but strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks. Swelling and bruising are common after liposuction, and wearing compression garments as directed can help reduce swelling and promote healing.

You'll notice some immediate improvement in your body contours after liposuction, however, full results become visible as swelling continues to subside. It typically takes several weeks to a few months for the final results to be revealed. To maintain liposuction results, we encourage patients to sustain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet since weight fluctuations can impact the outcome.

When performed by a skilled and qualified surgeon, this procedure is very safe. All patients should be aware of possible but rare side effects, including numbness, infection, or skin irregularities.

Liposuction alone removes fat deposits but does not address any loose skin, so pregnancy after liposuction should not affect your results. If you are seeking liposuction with a tummy tuck, it's best to wait until you are certain that you're done having children.
