Q: Are there different types of liposuction?
A: Some offices use different names which mean the same thing. You may hear words such as “lipoplasty” “liposuction” or “suctioning lipectomy” — they all mean the same thing.

Q: Can liposuction be used as a weight loss method?
A: No, liposuction is used to get rid of isolated areas of fat which are diet and/or exercise resistant NOT for weight loss.

Q: Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
A: The best candidates for liposuction are people at their normal weight who have isolated areas of fat. Firm, elastic skin allows for a better outcome. The patient’s age is not a factor, however, older patients have less skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as younger patients.

Q: How long do I need to be off of work?
A: It is suggested that you take off of work for 3-5 days after surgery but continue to avoid strenuous activity for one month after surgery.
