Liposuction overview

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a form of plastic surgery that is done to remove fat deposits from targeted areas of the body. The surgery uses powerful suction technology to permanently remove stubborn fat cells. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, liposuction can help improve your natural body contour and provide a more toned appearance. 

During the procedure, Dr. Troell will make a small incision, which is used to insert a small cannula. We will then pull out the fat through the cannula with vacuum technology. 

This cosmetic procedure is most commonly done on the stomach, hips, buttocks, or upper arms. However, you can have liposuction done on almost any part of your body with deposits of excess fat.

The types of Liposuction Technique

There are several different liposuction techniques available. Each of these methods uses a different technology to remove unwanted fat from the body. 

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses vibration to break up stubborn fat cells, making them easier to remove. We offer VASER ultrasonic liposuction, which is an advanced form of ultrasound-assisted liposuction that is very effective for precise body contouring. 

Suction-assisted Liposuction

This traditional form of liposuction has been used for decades and is still very popular. It uses a standard cannula and vacuum to remove fat. For this procedure, we will inject a saline solution prior to surgery. This saline solution helps break down the fat and makes it easier to remove. 

Laser-assisted Liposuction

This approach is similar to ultrasound-assisted liposuction. However, this technique uses a laser to melt excess fat. Like ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser liposuction is very effective for precise body contouring. 

Liposuction candidacy

Am I a Good Candidate For Liposuction?

Liposuction is best for candidates who are struggling with stubborn fat pockets that they can't remove with traditional weight-loss strategies. If you've already made improvements to your diet and exercise routine and still aren't seeing the results you want, liposuction can help you get there. 

Ideally, candidates should be close to their goal weight. Female candidates should also wait to undergo liposuction until they are finished having children, as pregnancy could significantly change the results of your surgery. 

Successful candidates for liposuction are adults who are in good health and don't have any underlying conditions that could interfere with the procedure.

Benefits of Liposuction

This body contouring procedure offers many benefits for patients, including: 

Permanently Remove Stubborn Fat

Even with a consistent exercise routine, many patients struggle to get rid of pockets of fat in certain areas. Liposuction helps achieve your aesthetic goals.

Body Sculpting

VASER liposuction and other advanced techniques can help create an ultra-sculpted look that is very difficult to achieve with diet and exercise alone.

Confidence Boost

The Liposuction can help you feel more comfortable and happy with your appearance. If excess fat has been holding you back from wearing certain clothes or trying new things, liposuction may give you the confidence boost to move forward.

Expectations on the Day of Your Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction can be done under general or local anesthesia, depending on where you're having surgery and the amount of fat you're having removed. With general anesthesia, you'll be completely asleep. With local anesthesia, we will numb the treated area and provide a light sedative to keep you comfortable.

In most cases, liposuction is done as an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to go home on the day of your surgery. However, you will need a friend or family member to drive you home and support you through your recovery. 

Recovery From LiposuctionWhat to Expect After

You may need to take pain medication as directed by Dr. Troell for the first few days after surgery. 

There may be some bruising and swelling in the area around your incision. You will need to wear your compression garment continuously for the first week after surgery.

We recommend that you stay home from work during the first few days after surgery. You can go on gentle walks after the first few days to get your blood flowing, but you will need to avoid strenuous exercise. Make sure you have plenty of comfortable and supportive pillows to rest on during your recovery. 

The recovery process for liposuction takes about four weeks. At this point, bruising, swelling, and pain will have subsided and you will start to see results. You'll also be able to resume your normal exercise routine at this point. You'll see the final results about six months after the procedure, when your body has fully adjusted.

I have great praise for Dr. Troell, Amy, and all the staff. I interviewed several doctors in the Summerlin area and selected Dr Troell based on his expertise as well as the wonderful service I received from my very first visit. I would highly recommend Dr Troell to anyone seeking high quality results with exceptional service.

Wonderful experience

He always made me feel beautiful and was patient with me through my questions and concerns pertaining to certain procedures. Meeting with Dr. Troell, it's more than just an appointment, it's an experience. I love that when I tell people my age they look at me in disbelief. I have to say that I found MY fountain of youth.. Dr. Robert Troell.

You will have very small scars after liposuction, as Dr. Troell will need to make an incision to insert the cannula. However, these scars are very difficult to see once they have faded. We will place each incision very carefully to minimize the chances of scarring.

It is possible to gain new fat cells after a liposuction procedure. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will help you prevent future fat gain. 

You won't feel pain during your liposuction procedure, but you will feel some pain afterward as your body heals. We will prescribe pain medication to use for the first few days after surgery. 

This will depend entirely on your job and your individual comfort level. If you work from home, you may be able to go back to work after just a day or two. If you work in person, you may want to take the entire week off. For physically strenuous jobs, you should wait until you've been cleared by Dr. Troell to resume working.

Insurance Coverage for Liposuction

Liposuction is generally not covered by health insurance. This is because liposuction is a cosmetic procedure and is not considered to be medically necessary. This means that patients will need to pay for liposuction out-of-pocket. 

However, we offer financing options to make the cost of liposuction more manageable. Ask our staff about financing during your consultation to see if you qualify. 

As low as $220 / month*

*Based on someone with excellent credit and a loan term of 36 months. Actual monthly payments will vary per individual depending on credit score, loan term and other factors.
