Liposculpting Q & A

What is liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a liposuction technique that removes excess fat from areas of the body, including:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chin

You may also get liposuction in combination with other surgical procedures, including breast reductions and facelifts.

Dr. Vu uses True Tumescent Liposuction to remove fat permanently without the pain and surgical risks of traditional liposuction. She administers local anesthesia for your comfort during the procedure.

How does liposuction work?

Dr. Vu performs liposuction procedures in-office as a same-day surgery. In preparation for surgery, Dr. Vu marks the areas of your body undergoing treatment. She may have photos taken for a before-and-after evaluation. She administers a local anesthetic which allows you to remain awake without experiencing any pain.

The microtubes used in the procedure allow for more precise body sculpting with less trauma to your body. Dr. Vu doesn’t need to use any sutures following the procedure.

Once the procedure is over, you can recover at home. You’ll be able to travel and resume normal activities within a few days. You can also start exercising within a week.

What are the risks of liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure with potential risks, but it’s a safer alternative to traditional liposuction surgeries using general anesthesia. Tumescent liposuction risks include:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Skin numbness
  • Damage to nerves, muscles, and blood vessels

Dr. Vu reviews all associated risks with surgery and the liposuction procedure with you before the surgery. She also discusses your cosmetic goals and medical history to provide the highest-quality results.

Does liposuction offer long-term results?

Liposuction results are permanent. However, to ensure there’s no new growth of fat cells, you need to follow a healthy diet and exercise plan. You can maintain your slim, sculpted shape by maintaining a diet of lean proteins, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low-fat meal plans.
