What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most popular Body Contouring procedures that successfully removes stubborn fat from specific areas of your body.

The most common treatment areas are the tummy, love handles, under the neck, buttocks, thighs, arms, and back.

Liposuction is often combined with other aesthetic procedures to enhance results; the most common ones are Tummy Tuck, Breast AugmentationBrazilian Butt LiftBreast Reduction, and Face Lift.

The advantage of Liposuction is your stubborn fat cells are removed in one treatment, and all of the fat cells removed at the time of your surgery are gone forever.

Liposuction is a procedure that is performed safely under local anesthetic or general anesthetic and can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours.

How is Liposuction Performed?

When it comes to aesthetic surgery of any kind, there’s no such thing as one size fits all. Every patient has their own unique surgical needs.

Whether you are interested in a subtle natural look or dramatic results, your Liposuction surgery will be fully customized according to your existing anatomy, unique surgical requirements, and desired aesthetic results.

What makes Liposuction at The First Glance Different?

Expertise and having the right technology are the two most important factors to consider when seeking out a Liposuction surgeon.

Liposuction is probably the single operative procedure taught to plastic surgeons that has the highest learning curve to provide patients with reproducible, high-quality outcomes with a low risk of contour irregularities. As the only surgical center in Manitoba and the Prairies that offers Power-assisted SAFE Liposuction and BodyTite/FaceTite our surgeons are highly trained and qualified to provide you with the results you desire.

Along with the technology, some of our surgeons have gained additional training in Hi-Definition Liposuction – a procedure where etching and increased definition of the muscle shadows and edges is performed for those individuals looking for a leaner “cut” look.

Liposuction is often performed with other non-surgical treatments, including Botox and injectable Filler treatments, including Lip FillerUnder Eye FillerJaw ContouringChin FillerTop Model CheekbonesNon Surgical RhinoplastyBelkyra Double Chin Fat Removal, and Skin Boosters.

What is Recovery Like After Liposuction?

After Liposuction, you can expect to be swollen, bruised, and have some discomfort in the areas treated.

Although an immediate improvement in contour will be visualized, the final result will generally be seen at 6 months after the majority of the swelling has resolved.

You will be given a compression garment to wear after surgery. Compression is generally recommended for 3-6 weeks after surgery. To further enhance you your outcome, our surgeons will generally recommend having lymphatic and deep tissue massage to the areas treated starting soon after surgery and continued weekly for several weeks. The First Glance Clinic works closely with several massage therapists and can make recommendations for therapists for you to see.

You can return to work and daily activities generally 4 to 7 days after your procedure. Return to work will vary based on the areas treated. Strenuous activity, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.
