Regardless of how disciplined we are in the gym, healthy eating habits, getting enough rest, drinking enough water, etc. Sometimes these things just are not enough! Let us assure you that you are not alone, this is a constant battle for a lot of women.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that employs suction to eliminate excess fat from specific regions of the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck.

In addition to fat removal, it also sculpts and contours these areas, a technique commonly known as “contouring.” Liposuction is also referred to by alternative names such as lipoplasty and body contouring.

 Liposuction Procedure

Anesthesia is introduced to minimize bleeding and trauma. Subsequently, a slim, hollow tube, referred to as a cannula, is carefully inserted through the incisions. It is manipulated in a controlled back-and-forth manner to loosen the surplus fat. The dislodged fat is subsequently removed from the body through the use of a surgical vacuum or a syringe connected to the cannula.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate?

If you have some areas that seem like they just want to hold on to unwanted fat, you may want to have this removed with liposuction. A lot of us can relate to this. You find that no matter how much you work out, watch what you eat or how much weight you lose after you have a baby, your body is simply not the same. This is normal. You may have noticed that nothing you try is working.

The truth is what you may already suspect: there is no magic pill to fix this on your own. Say goodbye to aggravation and hello to aspiration.

Types of Liposuction

There are many different types of liposuction techniques:

  • In traditional liposuction: A cannula is inserted under the skin to break up the fat cells. A high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula to remove the fat from the body.
  • Power-assisted liposuction: Uses a vibrating cannula to break up stubborn fat into smaller pieces, making it easier to remove.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): Uses ultrasonic vibrations to create a high amount of energy to dissolve the fat.
  • VASER liposuction: Vaser is a newer generation form of UAL.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction:  Similar to UAL, except that it uses a laser to dissolve the fat.

Combining Liposuction with Other Procedures

Yes, you can often have liposuction with another procedure like tummy tuck or part of a mommy makeover,  to board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mason to help make the surgical plan that is best for you. Some women may wish to have a thigh lift or a facial procedure done.

And of course, if you want any sort of facial injectables like fillers or Botox this can be done while you are sleeping.

At Perspectives Plastic Surgery, our goal is for you to have the body you’ve always wanted and the confidence to match. There are many options to achieve this, liposuction patients can talk to Dr. Mason about their goals!

Liposuction Recovery

You will see liposuction results immediately. Keep in mind that your body will continue to improve as it heals for the next several months. Swelling and discomfort will of course vary, but the recovery rules apply to everyone. You will need to rest and take time off work.

How much time depends on the procedure you have. It may be as much as six weeks before you are fully recovered from liposuction and back to your normal routine. This is the time for you to relax, heal, and take care of yourself.

The majority of the swelling will be gone after 6 weeks. It is important to stick with your scar care routine which Dr. Mason will teach you.

Liposuction Cost Las Vegas

Liposuction Las Vegas cost varies. It can start at $2,500 per area and it’s important to note that this figure excludes expenses related to anesthesia, surgical facility fees, and any additional costs.

Questions and Answers

Will I have liposuction scars?

Although liposuction does result in scarring, these scars tend to be minimal in size because of the small incisions made during the procedure.

Moreover, experienced surgeons make an effort to craft discreet incisions that are not readily noticeable upon initial inspection.

How Much is Liposuction Las Vegas?

Taking into account all elements contributing to the pricing, the average cost of liposuction can vary between $4,500 and $10,000 for a single treatment area. Several factors will influence the total monetary value of the procedure.

How long can liposuction last?

Liposuction stands as a secure and effective body sculpting procedure, offering long-lasting results. Nevertheless, realizing the full benefits of the procedure requires a steadfast commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

How much weight can you lose with liposuction?

Every liposuction procedure has the potential to remove a maximum of 4000-5000cc of fat. It is not unusual for certain patients to experience a weight loss of 20-30 pounds after liposuction, provided they maintain a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle and don’t gain weight back.

How painful is liposuction surgery?

Liposuction is generally not painful, as the procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. Nevertheless, it is common to experience a significant level of discomfort upon awakening from the surgery.

How long should I wear the compression garment after liposuction?

In the beginning, I recommend that liposuction patients wear their compression garment continuously for three weeks (excluding showering), followed by wearing it only at night for the following three weeks.

- Tiffany T.

On my first consultation with Dr. Rachel Mason, I have never felt more comfortable with a plastic surgeon as I was pointing out the flaws that I wanted fixed. As a 43-year-old mom of two, I had several things that bothered me. Dr. Mason listened to everything I said without judgment and gave me advice on what would be best to do. I could tell that her care and attention to detail was impeccable and I was not wrong. Her bedside manner is comforting and confident. I am now almost three weeks post-op and while I am still swollen, I couldn’t be happier with my results. She performed liposuction of several areas and a full tummy tuck. I am so thankful for Dr. Rachel Mason. I am actually excited for pool season this year!
