Is Liposuction Safe?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


Liposuction is a safe procedure for men and women who are good candidates. To learn if this includes you, call Indiana plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata at 317-575-9152Liposuction is the fastest and often the most effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits from nearly any area of the body. Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata offers advanced liposuction techniques designed to help improve safety and produce remarkable results, but some care will be required on your part to help ensure a speedy and full recovery.

Good candidates for liposuction are nonsmokers who are in generally good physical health. Smoking complicates and slows recovery, and may even encourage poor wound healing and enhance the appearance of postoperative scars. If you smoke, you will need to quit at least six weeks prior to liposuction to reduce these risks.  In addition, to help protect your safety, you should be close to your goal weight before undergoing liposuction. This body contouring procedure is suitable for sculpting and toning the frame, but not a good method of weight loss.

During your initial consultation at our Indianapolis plastic surgery office, Dr. Fata will assess your candidacy for liposuction and provide you with an overview of pre and postoperative measures that you will need to take to guard against complications. He will also honestly discuss risks such as bleeding, infection, and other potential concerns to help ensure you are making the decision that is best for your body.
