Have you ever wondered how to get rid of stubborn fat that just won’t budge, no matter how hard you work out or diet? At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer liposuction in Newport News and Williamsburg to remove unwanted stubborn fat deposits and help you achieve the body you desire.

Suction Away
Stubborn Fat Deposits

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that aims to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body, such as the love handles, muffin tops, or excess flab on your thighs and arms. It’s a fantastic option for those struggling with localized pockets of fat that just won’t go despite diet and exercise. The procedure involves a surgeon using a specialized suction tool to break up and extract fat cells from beneath the skin’s surface. This results in a more sculpted and contoured appearance in the treated areas.

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we understand that each patient is unique, so liposuction can be customized to target various trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and more. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution but a body contouring technique designed to enhance your body’s natural shape. Whether you want to trim down love handles or eliminate a double chin, our team can help you achieve the results you desire so you can feel confident in your own skin.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for liposuction in Newport News and Williamsburg are generally those who are at or near their target weight but have localized pockets of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise. However, it’s important to have realistic expectations — liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss but rather a body contouring procedure to enhance your physique. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, our plastic surgeons will consider your overall health, skin elasticity, and the specific areas you want to target to determine your candidacy.

Liposuction Surgery in Hampton Roads

When you opt for liposuction at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, you’re choosing a proven method to sculpt your body and eliminate stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction is usually performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on your unique concerns and comfort level. Your surgeon will make small, inconspicuous incisions near the targeted areas. Through these tiny openings, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted.

The cannula is connected to a powerful suction device, which is the key to removing those unwanted fat cells. With a precise and controlled back-and-forth motion, your surgeon gently dislodges and suctions out the excess fat. This process is tailored to the specific areas you’re looking to treat, ensuring precision results. The small incisions are carefully closed with sutures, and you’ll be provided with compression garments to aid healing and reduce swelling.

Liposuction typically takes a few hours, depending on the extent of the procedure. While you’ll experience some bruising and swelling in the days following your surgery, the results will gradually become more apparent as your body heals. With proper post-operative care and adherence to your surgeon’s instructions, you can enjoy a more contoured physique.

Liposuction Recovery Guidelines:

  • Allow your body time to heal; take it easy for the first few days.
  • Use the provided garments as directed to reduce swelling and support the healing process.
  • Take prescribed pain medications and antibiotics as directed by your surgeon.
  • Follow proper wound care to prevent infection and promote healing.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to aid in recovery and maintain your overall health.
  • Ease back into your routine and avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks.
  • Keep all scheduled post-operative appointments with your surgeon.
  • Expect some swelling, but report excessive swelling or other symptoms to your surgeon.
  • Maintain a balanced diet to support healing and help maintain your results.
  • Refrain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption, as they can affect healing.
