Frequently Asked Questions

Most liposuction patients can see a very real improvement as early as the first week, and this continues to improve over the next several months as the swelling recedes and the skin adapts and contracts into its new shape. This of course varies depending on the patient's initial body type. More overweight patients will see a change in their shape faster while a very thin person who is only getting a small area liposuctioned will not see the change as quickly. For the first week the initial swelling can even make the treated area look larger than it was before.

It addresses multiple bothersome areas: the stomach is flattened, the waist is narrowed, and excess fat and skin are removed.
