How Much Fat Can Be Removed During Liposuction?

If you have one or more areas that you’d like to slim and sculpt, liposuction may be the ideal procedure to accomplish your desired outcome. It’s important that liposuction is viewed as a body contouring procedure. There is only a slight chance that your weight will decrease after this procedure even though it does remove up to 5000 ml of volume in fatty tissue. Five thousand milliliters, or five liters, of fatty tissue, can translate to up to 11 pounds. However, this isn’t the point. The goal of liposuction is to enhance your appearance, not to decrease your weight. Your liposuction procedure may focus on a very small area, such as the upper neck or back of the arms, where high-volume fat reduction would be too much! During your consultation, keep appearance in mind rather than volume and you’ll be well on your way to achieving your ideal liposuction outcome.

What are the Benefits of Body Contouring?

Body contouring procedures are performed with the express intent of achieving a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. Through your chosen body contouring procedure, you can achieve benefits like:

  • Tighter skin. Some body contouring procedures, like abdominoplasty or arm lift surgery, focus on tightening the skin and superficial tissue. These procedures work by carefully trimming excess through the smallest incisions possible, restructuring your appearance in a select area.
  • Fewer stretch marks. If you have stretch marks in your surgical area, your procedure can reduce or even eliminate them. Abdominoplasty is the most commonly known procedure for reducing or eliminating stretch marks because it is the abdomen that is most affected by extraordinary stretching of the skin.
  • Restored breast fullness. Mommy makeover treatment is customized to not only eliminate unwanted fat and tighten loose abdominal tissue but also restore optimal breast fullness. This can be done using breast implants or, if preferred, a breast lift with or without fat injections.

What is a “Stem Cell Makeover”?

Body contouring involves giving and taking away. The Stem Cell Makeover that Dr. Kimmel performs gives new shape to an area that has been deflated by weight change and aging. In this process, fat cells are taken from one area of the body and processed to remove unnecessary blood cells and fluid. What we’re left with is pure fat. These fat cells are then introduced to another area, large or small. Stem Cell Makeovers can augment the breasts or buttocks or can be refined to reduce the severity of facial aging.

How Long is the Recovery from Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty can be performed on its own or as a part of a broader treatment plan like a Mommy Makeover. Even in a makeover procedure, a tummy tuck usually takes the longest to overcome in terms of side effects. This is why it can be so advantageous to combine a tummy tuck with other techniques, such as liposuction and breast surgery. If you’re considering abdominoplasty, plan for a recovery that occurs in stages. Your initial recovery will focus on rest and pain management and may last about one week. You’ll rely on prescription pain medication and lifestyle modifications to maintain comfort. After a week to 10 days, you may be able to position your body upright or flat, going back to standing and sleeping on your back without much tugging or discomfort. After about two weeks, your comfort may be restored and the rest of your recovery may revolve around helping your surgical scars heal properly. Scar maturation can take up to one year.
