Liposuction in Ottawa by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove stubborn areas of fat underneath the skin. Sometimes it is done on its own to improve the contours of a body part. Other times it is added to a separate surgical procedure to take the aesthetic results to the next level. Results with liposuction are permanent. As long as patients maintain their body weight, the results should not change significantly over time.
Dr. Ian MacArthur is a Top Rated, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Ottawa who can help you achieve the aesthetic results you desire.
Is Liposuction Right For Me?
What is liposuction?
It is only able to remove fat that is present between the skin and the underlying muscles. If someone is interested in using liposuction to lose weight, other specific weight loss surgeries should be considered instead.
The overlying skin must have a good tone and elasticity to achieve an excellent liposuction result. This is because skin does not tighten after a liposuction procedure. For example, if a patient has extra abdominal skin following a pregnancy or weight loss, a tummy tuck would be a better option than liposuction alone.
Common areas treated with liposuction include the chest, abdomen, hips, back, and thighs. Liposuction in these areas can provide a slim, beautiful contour that would not have been possible with diet and exercise alone.
Types of Liposuction Techniques:
It can last 1 to 4 hours and is done as day surgery, meaning patients can go home afterward on the same day. Surgery takes place at either a hospital or a private surgical facility.
Most patients take one week off of work after liposuction surgery. All patients are required to wear a compression garment for four weeks after surgery. This is done to allow the skin to heal smoothly in place and to control swelling. Final results after liposuction can be seen 6 months after surgery.
Most patients get liposuction at the same time as tummy tuck to sculpt and add more definition to the midsection. If you wish to have liposuction done at the same time as any other cosmetic surgery, you can discuss your surgical options at the time of your consultation.
What is the cost of Liposuction in Ottawa, Ontario?
Liposuction typically starts at $6,000.
At the time of your consultation with Dr. Ian MacArthur, you will get an exact quote for your liposuction surgery. The exact cost will be determined by your existing anatomy, desired aesthetic results, and unique surgical requirements.
Can I get Liposuction Under My Chin?
Yes, liposuction under the chin (neck lipo) is one of our most popular treatments for a double chin. Removing fat beneath the chin can create a beautiful new contour for your face and neck.
What areas of the body can be treated with liposuction?
Common areas for liposuction include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, and back. Multiple areas can be treated depending on your unique needs.
How long is the recovery time after liposuction?
Recovery time can vary; however, most people can return to work one week after surgery. Full recovery takes several weeks to a few months.
Is liposuction the best treatment for weight Loss?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. It is a body-contouring procedure for individuals at (or near) their ideal body weight with stubborn fat that is not responding to diet and exercise.
Can liposuction be combined with other procedures?
Will I have scars after liposuction?
You will have small scars from the incisions made during surgery. However, these scars are typically tiny and fade over time. Dr. MacArthur places incision lines strategically to minimize visibility, and will recommend specific medical grade skincare products to minimize the appearance of scars.
Are the results of liposuction permanent?
All fat cells removed by liposuction are permanently gone. However, if the patient gains a significant amount of weight after surgery, other fat cells in the body can expand, affecting the results. Surgical results are never permanent due to the natural effects of aging. Your lifestyle also plays a significant role in the longevity of your results.
