If you’re considering liposuction, you are likely on a journey to enhance your body contours and achieve a different silhouette. Liposuction, or “lipo” for short, is a fat removal procedure. It is a popular procedure for those looking to remove stubborn fat deposits that diet and exercise often struggle to address. At Arviv Plastic Surgery, we provide Tampa, FL, residents with many options to build comfort and confidence in their bodies. We will walk you through the various aspects of liposuction, ensuring you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. Whether you’re curious about the process, candidacy, or transformative results, we are here to address your questions and concerns.

The Before and After of Liposuction Surgery

When it comes to any surgical procedure, you should be well-informed about the process. The before and after of liposuction surgery will vary from one patient to the next, but it is still fairly straightforward for most individuals.


Before Liposuction

Before the procedure, you will undergo a thorough consultation process with our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Abdullah. Your consultation involves discussing your medical history, expectations, and the specific areas you’d like to target. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and make sure you understand the process. Our team will provide detailed preoperative instructions to ensure you are well-prepared for the surgery.


During Liposuction

The day of the surgery will involve a careful and precise process. Your comfort is paramount, and anesthesia ensures a pain-free surgery.


Small incisions are made in order to loosen and remove excess fat deposits, while a skilled surgeon will use advanced techniques to reduce bleeding and discomfort. This allows sculpting your body to achieve the desired contours. The procedure is generally outpatient, meaning you can return home the same day.


After Liposuction

Recovery is a crucial phase, and our team will guide you through it. You can expect some swelling and bruising initially, but these effects gradually subside. Following post-operation instructions, including wearing compression garments, attending follow-up appointments, and following any pain control recommendations, will contribute to a smoother recovery. After liposuction, the tissue must normalize over 8-12 months, so unveiling your new physique is a transformative process. During this time, continue to stay hydrated, follow a healthy diet, and engage in regular exercise once cleared in order to promote healing and healthy body weight and achieve your desired body contour.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is ideal for individuals who maintain a healthy lifestyle but struggle with localized fat deposits.


If your diet and exercise efforts have not yielded ideal results in your abdomen, thighs, buttocks or other areas that respond well to liposuction, we can discuss how liposuction can be performed to minimize these stubborn fat deposits and result in a slimmer appearance.


We also consider if you have realistic goals and expectations.


Dr. Abdullah will assess your candidacy during your consultation and discuss the best approach to help you achieve your body goals.
