Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure in which Dr. Bloch uses liposuction technology to reshape and slim your body. It reduces fat and cellulite commonly found on your:

  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks

The procedure is useful if you have lingering fat pockets that don’t go away after you’ve reached an ideal weight with regular exercise and a healthy diet. 

Dr. Bloch specializes in state-of-the-art VASER® high-definition liposuction to optimize your results and take fat loss to the next level. The outcome is less fat and improved body contours with minimal downtime.

Is liposuction right for me?

Dr. Bloch lets you know if you’re a good candidate for liposuction after reviewing your medical history and completing a physical exam. He discusses the desired outcome and might recommend additional cosmetic procedures to meet your aesthetic goals. You should be at or near an ideal weight prior to treatment.

If you have stubborn fat pockets, realistic expectations, and are in good health, liposuction might be the solution for you.

How should I prepare for treatment?

To prepare for liposuction, follow Dr. Bloch’s pre-surgical instructions. You might require lab work and lifestyle changes, such as stopping certain medications and not smoking. Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

What happens during liposuction?

When you arrive for your appointment, you’re given local or regional anesthesia with a sedative or general anesthesia in some cases. Either way, you won’t feel any pain during treatment. 

Dr. Bloch uses high-definition ultrasound liposuction technology to break up fat tissue and remove it from your body in problem areas using gentle suction. The result is less fat, better body contours, and more muscle definition.

What should I expect after treatment?

You can go home the same day as liposuction treatment but must have someone drive you home. Expect some swelling, bruising, or tenderness after the procedure. Take all medications as prescribed by Dr. Bloch.

You might have temporary tubes in your skin to allow fluid drainage. Wear compression garments as instructed by Dr. Bloch. Rest for a few days and avoid strenuous activity until a follow-up appointment at Body By Bloch gives you the okay.

When will I notice the results?

Swelling may take a few weeks to subside, and you should experience optimal results over time. The results are long-lasting, as long as you maintain a healthy weight.
