Liposuction by Plastic Surgeons in Columbus, Ohio
Liposuction - Columbus, Ohio
Liposuction is a procedure that allows your Columbus plastic surgeon to remove unwanted fat from specific areas through a small skin incision with an instrument called a cannula. After the procedure, depending on your surgeon, you may have stitches at the cannula sites. When only small areas are addressed, some surgeons will perform the procedure in an office setting under local anesthesia, but more extensive procedures are done in an operating room under general anesthesia. If you feel you are a good candidate for liposuction or want to learn more, talk with your Columbus plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
Columbus Liposuction Recovery
The extent of your procedure will likely determine the length and level of care you require after surgery. Most patients experience significant swelling, bruising, and discomfort after liposuction. Regardless of whether you have the procedure in an office or in an OR you will need to arrange for at least 24 hours of care. After liposuction, you will have a compression garment or elastic bandages placed over the surgical sites. In addition there will be oozing from the incision sites for several days to a week. You will likely need dressing changes, at regular intervals, over these sites until the leaking subsides. Our Liposuction Recovery Package is specially designed to meet all your needs immediately following your procedure.
Remember that compliance with your elastic wraps and compression garments is critical to promote skin retraction and optimal cosmetic results. You will not be able to drive for several days after the procedure. As a post-op plastic surgery patient at Columbus's Cosmetic Surgery Recovery Suites we will arrange all of your transportation after surgery to our facility and to all your postoperative follow-up appointments during your stay. We will also make sure that you take your pain medication and any antibiotics that your surgeon may have prescribed.
