Top 5 Liposuction Questions

Liposuction can produce beautiful results when removing small areas of excess fat around the body. The precise removal of those fat pockets allows Dr. Franckle to contour the body’s shape and minimize unflattering proportions. The process is popular across the world and there is a reason for it — all the happy patients!

If you are curious about liposuction, you’ve probably asked yourself one or more of the top 5 liposuction questions listed below. If this post doesn’t provide an answer to all of your concerns, please join us for a free consultation with Dr. Franckle. And don’t forget to check out our gallery of liposuction before and after photos.

1. How Does Liposuction Work?

A liposuction procedure will remove excess fat deposits from the body. After anesthesia is administered (whether it be general or local anesthesia), incisions are made and a thin hollow tube (or cannula) is used to loosen the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body.

In the current, technologically advanced field of plastic surgery, doctors and patients are blessed with many options for a liposuction procedure. Laser liposuction, water-assisted liposuction (body-jet) and traditional liposuction are among the most popular. The method of liposuction used in a surgery is based on the patient’s body type, health and areas they wish to have treated. All of this will be decided during your consultation with Dr. Franckle.

2. Does Liposuction Work Best on Certain Body Types?

This procedure works best on men and women who are close to their ideal, healthy body weight.  Excess weight has the potential to obstruct a healthy healing process. An ideal liposuction candidate is within 30% of their ideal weight and have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. 

3. Will Liposuction Help Me Lose Weight?

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity nor a treatment designed to help a patient lose weight. Liposuction is meant to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are not responding to diet and exercise. Patients who have always struggled to reduce fat in certain areas of the body (tummy, thighs, arms) find liposuction very helpful when used in conjunction with their healthy lifestyle.

4. What is Liposuction Recovery Like?

The after care for liposuction may involve wearing a tube to drain the body of excess fluid accumulating at the incision sites. Fluid is a liposuction recovery regularity and is typically not cause for alarm. Medical compression garments are recommended and should be worn to compress the area and aid in healing. These are usually worn for a few weeks post procedure. It is common for patients to feel pain after the anesthesia wears off and oral medications may be prescribed to help with the discomfort. Swelling following the procedure is to be expected and will subside in the months post operative. The compression garment recommended should be worn 24 hours a day to help control swelling and compress the skin to your new body shape. 

5. How Do I Choose my Liposuction Surgeon?

One of the most important decisions for you to make before a liposuction procedure is choosing a surgeon. First and foremost, research doctors in your area that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. No exceptions! That is the only way to ensure a safe procedure. Visit the doctor’s website and their before and after photo gallery. When you find a doctor you like, visit the office for a consultation. You want to be comfortable with the doctor as well as the staff at the practice.

Dr. William Franckle Testimonials

What's a Rhinoplasty REALLY like?? →⁠ 👃🏽👃🏽

⇥ To begin the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Franckle will make the internal and external incisions⁠

(..depending on if it is an open or closed rhinoplasty)⁠

⇥ The placement of the incisions will also depend on your unique surgical goals, which will be determined during your consultation⁠

⇥ Once the incisions are made, Dr. Franckle can lift the soft tissues and gain access to the cartilage and nasal bones that create the shape of the nose⁠

⇥ From there, the small cartilages in the top and bridge of the nose can be reshaped, and small cuts in the middle nose bones may also be necessary⁠

⇥ Additional incisions are sometimes made at the outer base of each nostril if there is a desire to alter the nostril size or symmetry⁠

⇥ To complete the procedure, Dr. Franckle will finalize the placement of the underlying tissues and nasal skin and close the incisions. ⁠

Since this is an outpatient procedure, you will be able to return home the SAME day of the surgery! ⁠

Rhinoplasty can help patients achieve aesthetic goals, but it may also help those who suffer from nasal breathing problems such as sleep apnea. ⁠

Nose surgery may also be right for candidates who have suffered a nasal fracture and require reconstructive surgery to repair the shape and functionality of the nasal passage.⁠

In addition, if you are bothered by any of the following issues, then a nose job surgery may be right for you:⁠

1. A hooked or crooked nose that impacts facial symmetry⁠

2. A nose shape with a rounded, bulbous tip or disproportionately large nostrils⁠

3. An enlarged bump on the bridge of the nose, also known as a dorsal hump⁠

How Much Time Will I Need to Take Off Work after having a Rhinoplasty Procedure?⁠

→ The first seven days after surgery are the most difficult with pain, swelling, and bruising. Most people working in a sedentary profession find that taking one week of leave is sufficient. ⁠

→ However, anyone wishing to keep the surgery a secret or working in a profession that requires physical activity should take between two and three weeks off. ⁠

Dr. Franckle can provide specific recommendations for you during your pre-operative appointment.⁠
