Is Liposuction right for me?
If you are bothered by concentrated and localized fat deposits that may be a result of heredity and not a lack of weight control and fitness, then Liposuction may be the right procedure for you. Liposuction is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Special considerations may be necessary for individuals with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or previous surgery to the treatment area. Please discuss these conditions with Dr. Vartany.

How will I need to prepare for my Liposuction surgery?
Where are the incisions made during Liposuction?
Very small inconspicuous incisions are made in or near the area to be suctioned for insertion of an appropriately sized cannula. In many cases, incisions may be so small that no stitches are required for closure.
What may I expect during my recovery?
Are there additional instructions for my Liposuction recovery?
You will be provided with a compression garment on the day of surgery. You will need to wear this garment, morning and night, for approximately 4 weeks after surgery. The garment is designed to minimize swelling and support your new contours.
You may shower 3 days after surgery. Gently wash and pat the incisions dry. Immediately replace your compression garment.
You may not drive a vehicle until you have been permitted to do so.
How much time should I take off of work or school?
You will need to allow 3-5 days off from work or school for this procedure due to swelling and discomfort. Additional time may be needed for larger areas.
