What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes unwanted fat. This versatile surgery can target your trouble areas to sculpt a leaner, sleeker appearance. While liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, it complements your healthy diet and exercise regimen to help address problem areas, including:

  • Arms 
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks 
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Chest area
  • Upper arms
  • Inner knee
  • Calves and ankles
  • Cheeks, chin, and neck

Dr. Daugherty offers power-assisted liposuction, using a specialized cannula that rapidly vibrates to break down fatty tissue. This procedure allows Dr. Daugherty to focus on removing the correct amount of fat to sculpt and contour the desired area with less exertion. Typically, there is less bruising following power-assisted liposuction.

Dr. Daugherty also offers VASER high-definition liposuction. The procedure first uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat, which allows for comprehensive and smooth fat elimination.

What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction is an ideal body contouring procedure for patients who are close to their desired body weight but may have pockets of stubborn fat. Liposuction effectively removes fat to improve overall figure and increase self-confidence. Following your liposuction procedure, you can expect:

  • Enhanced physical appearance 
  • Smoother, sleeker contours 
  • Improved tone
  • More proportioned body contour
  • Renewed self-image

The fat cells removed via liposuction are gone for good; however, if you gain weight, your remaining fat cells can grow larger. Beyond a 30% increase in weight, the stem cells in your fat will produce more fat cells.  By maintaining your healthy lifestyle and weight, you can enjoy long-lasting results from your Baton Rouge liposuction.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction candidates in Louisiana are close to their ideal weight, but still struggle with pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat and are hoping to achieve a leaner physique. The goal of liposuction is not to help overweight people shed a significant number of pounds; instead, the procedure improves body contours and definition. Dr. Daugherty recommends that you reach your goal weight and keep it stable for at least six months before scheduling your procedure.

Liposuction candidates should: 

  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Have minimal to no excess skin
  • Be non-smokers or willing to quit before surgery
  • Have realistic expectations and a positive outlook
  • Understand the surgical risks 

Patients who are not good candidates for liposuction are

  • People with visceral fat or fat below the abdominal wall around the organs — it’s not possible to surgically remove this fat 
  • People actively losing weight — your weight should be stable for at least six months before surgery
  • Patients with excess skin from pregnancy or weight loss
  • Patients who are at their heaviest weight or whose goal is weight loss

What Can I Expect During a Baton Rouge Liposuction Procedure?

Dr. Daugherty customizes each liposuction procedure for each patient’s optimal results. However, here are some general steps you can expect.

Check-In and Anesthesia
Plan on arriving about an hour before your procedure. After our friendly team has welcomed you and checked you in, Dr. Daugherty will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, then perform her surgical markings.
Liposuction Procedure
According to your procedural plan, Dr. Daugherty will begin contouring your figure by performing power-assisted or VASER liposuction to ensure optimal results. Typically, to minimize pain and blood loss, she will inject a solution containing an anesthetic and vasoconstrictor into the treatment area before starting to suction out the fat. With VASER liposuction, you will also have a small probe inserted through an incision in the treatment area. This probe will emit ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat cells.
Liposuction Aftercare
As liposuction is an outpatient surgery, you will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first day to assist you. Dr. Daugherty may write you prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics. For approximately four to six weeks following your liposuction procedure, you may need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and improve your new contours. For those with physically demanding jobs or small children to care for, plan on having one to two weeks of recovery time. Patients with sedentary jobs may possibly return to work in three to five days. All patients should avoid strenuous activities and exercises for at least six weeks, or until Dr. Daugherty clears you to do so.

FAQ

Baton Rouge, LA, Liposuction

As liposuction procedures are versatile and can treat many areas of the body, the cost of your Baton Rouge liposuction will depend on your individual needs. At your consultation, Dr. Daugherty’s team will give you a breakdown of the costs.

Typically, liposuction recovery time is four to six weeks. You’ll probably feel healed enough to return to work three to five days following your procedure. While you recover, you may need to wear a compression garment for four to six weeks to minimize swelling.

For realistic expectations, it’s helpful to think of liposuction as a contouring procedure to tone specific trouble zones on your body. Because there are limits to how much fat any qualified plastic surgeon can safely remove when performing liposuction, the number you see on the scale may not be dramatically different after your surgery. However, you’ll notice a difference in your self-esteem, and you will have the confidence to wear more revealing clothing styles like swimsuits and sleeveless tops.
