How Does Liposuction Work?

Are you interested in liposuction but don’t know how it works? Don’t worry; you’re not the only one. Read on to learn how our team at Awaken Aesthetics performs liposuction procedures from beginning to end.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction or “lipo” is an effective way to smooth, slim, reshape, and contour the body while improving self-esteem. Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from the body. Although it is not a substitute for weight loss, lipo often treats areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction is performed on various areas of the body, including the stomach, thighs, arms, neck, buttocks, and more. 

Traditional liposuction techniques, however, have disappointed many patients, as they left visible scarring, major downtime, and complications. Fortunately, Awaken Aesthetics offers an innovative alternative to traditional lipo methods. If you want a better liposuction experience, our laser liposuction method called SmartLipo™ is the perfect alternative to standard liposuction procedures.  View More Patient Results

How Painful is Liposuction?

Liposuction isn’t particularly painful, as you’ll most likely be under general anesthesia for the procedure. However, you may feel a considerable amount of discomfort after you wake up from your surgery. This pain usually subsides after about two to three days, but you may need prescription pain medication from your plastic surgeon to feel more comfortable.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Liposuction?

While every patient is different, most patients can expect to return to work after about one week of recovery. Full recovery from liposuction surgery takes about three to four weeks; at this milestone, patients are usually cleared to return to their normal activities.
