Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a tried-and-true strategy for fat loss. The latest innovations in liposuction mean it’s no more than a minor surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits from areas of your body that don’t respond to weight loss and fitness. 

Dr. Born performs liposuction while you’re under general anesthesia or local sedation if you’re having the procedure performed on a smaller area like under your chin. 

During the procedure, Dr. Born uses an innovative technique known as tumescent liposuction. He places a small, thin tube called a cannula into target areas through a very small incision. The targeted fat is treated with a saline solution to make it firm and easy to then suction away. 

What areas can be treated with liposuction?

Dr. Born uses liposuction on areas of your body that typically hold onto fat, like the belly, thighs, buttocks, back, and arms. He also offers submental liposuction for under the chin. 

Liposuction for the chin area gets you a smooth and strong contour to the jawline and a long and lean neck. The result is a more youthful and pleasing look on your face. Liposuction gets rid of the fat pockets that can develop in the area below the chin, in the jowls, and neck. 

Who is a candidate for liposuction?

Anyone who has pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise is a potential candidate for liposuction.

Liposuction, particularly liposuction performed under the chin, has a very high rate of success.

Consider chin liposuction in particular if you’re looking to augment a weak chin, sagging jowls, or an overly full look to your lower face. 

Dr. Born is one of the most respected surgeons in North America and has years of experience performing liposuction. He’ll get you the absolute best results so you have a profile and body that gives you confidence and pride. 

What is recovery like after liposuction?

If you have liposuction on your body, you’ll wear a compression garment for a few days to discourage swelling. You may have some oozing from the site as well. 

If you have liposuction at the chin, expect some swelling, bruising, numbness, and tenderness. You’ll get care tips to help you minimize these side effects and maximize your results. 

Liposuction can help you achieve a slender physique and enviable profile. Call TMB Cosmetic Surgery to get started or use the online tool to book an appointment.
