Liposuction for Women in South Jersey

Sometimes, no amount of diet and exercise seems to lessen stubborn fat on the stomach, thighs, arms, or other body areas. Fortunately, several plastic surgery procedures can be performed to help reduce excess fat deposits.

Liposuction, a type of body contouring cosmetic surgery, is often one of the more effective ways of reducing fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

William Franckle, MD, FACS performs liposuction in New Jersey to help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals. If you’re interested in body contouring with Dr. Franckle, here’s what to know about this popular cosmetic surgery for women.

What Is Liposuction?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction was the #1 most common plastic surgery procedure performed in 2022. This minimally invasive body contouring surgery involves removing stubborn, localized fat deposits through small suction tubes.

Liposuction is not considered a weight-loss method but rather a way to remove pockets of fat that diet and exercise alone haven’t eliminated.

Several liposuction procedures may be used, depending on the area and your treatment goals. While the exact technique varies by procedure, the basic premise of each type of liposuction is to break down fat cells within the treated area and remove them through a vacuum.

Dr. Franckle will recommend the most appropriate method to help reduce the appearance of fat deposits based on your specific circumstances.

Are You a Candidate for Liposuction?

Like any cosmetic surgery, not everyone will qualify as a candidate for liposuction.

The ideal candidate is generally in good health and a non-smoker. Because liposuction is not a weight-loss alternative, the ideal candidate is also at a stable weight with only a few problem areas they wish to address. They should already have achieved the bulk of their desired weight loss and continue maintaining a good diet and exercise routine.

Dr. Franckle will consider these factors to help you determine if liposuction is right for you.

Liposuction Combined With Other Procedures

Liposuction can be performed on its own or, depending on the patient, in conjunction with other procedures. Combining procedures helps patients minimize downtime while maximizing results.

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Many patients who have lost a significant amount of weight choose to undergo a tummy tuck with liposuction. First, Dr. Franckle will perform liposuction to reduce leftover fat deposits that have resisted other weight loss methods. Then, he will remove any excess or loose skin resulting from drastic weight loss before redraping it over the newly contoured area.

Liposuction and Mommy Makeover

Another procedure frequently performed with liposuction is the mommy makeover, popular among women who are finished having children. This combines liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast lift or augmentation. For many women, the result is a sculpted silhouette and a figure more like they had before having children. Many patients report that this makes them feel more confident and sexier.

Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Franckle can perform these procedures and others in conjunction with liposuction to help you achieve your desired appearance.

What to Expect During Your Liposuction Procedure

After discussing your medical history, goals, and concerns with Dr. Franckle, he will use 3-D imaging technology to show you possible results from liposuction and give you realistic expectations.

Depending on the type of liposuction, Dr. Franckle will use a sterile solution, sound waves, laser, or another method to break down fat cells within the targeted area. He will then remove the excess fat cells through a thin tube called a cannula, which will be inserted into the area through a small incision. The fat cells will be vacuumed out of your body by a suction pump attached to the end of the cannula or with a large syringe. Drains may be placed after the suctioning is over to prevent fluid build-up.

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis, using either general or local anesthesia, so you will need to arrange for a loved one to bring you home.

What to Expect During Recovery from Liposuction

Immediately after the procedure, there may be fluid draining from the incision points. Dr. Franckle will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your situation. You will likely need to wear a compression garment over the treated area for a few weeks, in addition to taking antibiotics to prevent infection.

It is normal to experience swelling and soreness once the anesthesia wears off, which can last a few weeks to a few months. You may also experience redness, pain, or swelling at the injection site of the anesthesia, as well as grogginess for several hours after the procedure.

In most cases, you will be able to return to work within a few days and normal activities within a few weeks.

Because the incisions used for liposuction are small, scarring is fairly limited and will depend on genetics and skin pigmentation. Dr. Franckle has extensive experience with this procedure and, therefore, works to minimize scarring by choosing discreet incision points.

Cost of Liposuction in New Jersey

Liposuction costs vary based on what area(s) are being treated and how much fat needs to be removed. Generally speaking, however, liposuction costs range from $3,700 and up.

How to Prepare for Liposuction

Because liposuction is not technically a weight-loss method, it’s important that you try to lose as much weight as possible through diet and exercise before scheduling treatment. This will ensure that you are at a relatively ideal weight with a healthy body mass index (BMI) when it’s time to have the procedure.

Leading up to your fat removal procedure, you should also quit smoking to minimize your risk of circulation and healing problems. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is also important, and medication changes may be necessary to ensure your safety during surgery.

As with any procedure, you should also make arrangements to have a ride home after your liposuction, as well as childcare, time off of work or school, and plenty of time to rest and recover. Start gathering supplies for your recovery early, including lots of water and nutritious foods, ice packs, and loose, comfortable clothing. During your pre-op appointment, Dr. Franckle will inform you of any other supplies or medications you may need to recover from liposuction.

New Jersey Liposuction FAQs

While liposuction and CoolSculpting are both outpatient procedures used to address stubborn fat, their methods are very different. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which causes them to die and be eliminated by the body’s natural process. It can take several treatments for results to show, and each session lasts around an hour. Because there are no incisions, there is also no downtime with CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting can also be known as cryolipolysis.

All liposuction techniques involve suctioning fat out of the target area; they just use different means to get there. The tumescent technique involves injecting an anesthetic solution into the fatty tissue before removing it, reducing overall pain and eliminating the need for a general anesthetic. Ultrasound liposuction, which can also be referred to as VASER, uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out; laser lipo and Smart Lipo work in a very similar way.

Abdominal lipo and tummy tuck are terms sometimes used interchangeably, but they refer to two very different procedures. Lipo removes unwanted fat cells from an area, while a tummy tuck removes loose or excess skin, often after weight loss. Sometimes, these two procedures can be performed simultaneously for a greater body contouring effect.

Liposuction can be effective on any stubborn fat. It is most commonly used on the abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs or ‘saddlebags,’ arms or ‘bat wings,’ and back. It can also be performed on the knees, calves, ankles, neck, and face. Liposuction is also an effective treatment for a lipoma, a benign tumor made of fat tissue, and can reduce fat in cases of advanced lymphedema. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for obesity or suitable for whole-body fat reduction.

The visible results of a liposuction procedure can typically be seen within a few weeks after the surgery, once the initial swelling subsides. However, it can take up to six months for the final outcome to fully materialize, as your body continues to heal and adjust to the changes. For some individuals, it might take a bit longer to see the complete results, depending on factors like the amount of fat removed and personal healing response.

Fat cells do not typically return after liposuction if a patient maintains a stable weight. If a patient gains a small amount of weight, the fat cells in the treated area may get larger, but new cells will not typically grow. Instead, the fat will accumulate in other body areas where fat cells haven’t been removed. If a significant amount of weight is gained, new cells may grow in the treated area, resulting in the appearance of fat deposits. For this reason, liposuction is not typically recommended for women who plan to get pregnant in the near future.

Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged breasts in men. Approximately 15 million males in the United States experience gynecomastia at any given time. It can be found in either one breast or both, and it can sometimes cause a noticeable imbalance in the size of the breasts. Though it is often a painless condition, men who suffer from it may experience feelings of embarrassment or shyness.⁠

Childbirth is a truly miraculous event, and you shouldn’t have to settle for a physique you find unsatisfying. With the Mommy Makeover, South Jersey and surrounding area moms can fight the physical effects of motherhood and shift their focus to the more magical elements of parenthood. ⁠

As with any invasive procedure, it is absolutely paramount that the patient be otherwise healthy before undergoing surgery.

It is also necessary to allow your body ample time to heal after childbirth before undergoing major surgery.⁠

Fact: A facelift can reposition tissue and address the neck area in ways fillers cannot. However, fillers are excellent for adding lost facial volume and giving a boost to your skin. They’re a great short-term, nonsurgical way to fight the signs of aging. If you’re unsure about committing to a facelift, give facial fillers a try.⁠
