Truth and Misconception

There are some myths surrounding liposuction, and some patients are understandably a little confused about the procedure. Here are some important facts about the procedure:

  • Liposuction has an exceptional safety record: Liposuction is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans undergo liposuction without experiencing any meaningful complications. That said…
  • Your choice of liposuction doctor matters: Like all surgical procedures, liposuction carries with it certain risks. These aren’t significant when your surgeon has decades of experience like Dr. Fata. But an untrained doctor with no special experience in liposuction is not a risk you need to take.
  • Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure: One important thing to understand is that liposuction is best for patients who are at or near their ideal bodyweight. New mothers who’ve lost weight after pregnancy and nursing are particularly good candidates. If you are significantly overweight, liposuction is probably not right for you.
  • Ultrasonic liposuction offers great benefits: For most patients, Dr. Fata will recommend ultrasonic liposuction, which uses safe ultrasound waves to break up and liquefy fat cells in the treatment area. This procedure greatly reduces bruising and swelling and eases recovery tremendously.

Of course, this isn’t everything you need to know about liposuction. The best way to learn all the relevant facts is to come in for a consultation with Dr. Fata. He’ll answer all of your questions, address your concerns and evaluate your current goals to determine if you are a sound liposuction candidate.
