What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is used to remove fat from parts of your body, including your arms and legs, belly and waist. Dr. Markelov performs the procedure through a tiny incisions, which heal without much visible scarring. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia without the need for general anesthesia or hospital stay.
This procedure helps with body reshaping and is a good choice for individuals with more fat in certain areas of their body than others. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. If you’re looking to lose weight, diet and exercise would be your best bet. After you reach your goal weight, liposuction could help give your body a smoother appearance.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is a great option for men and women who live a generally healthy lifestyle. If you have good skin elasticity and tone, then your skin will shrink down once the fat is removed. Liposuction is not recommended for people with significant amount of loose skin.

What should I expect?

You should expect a smoother, better-contoured appearance from liposuction, with minimal scarring. Your contouring should last for a long time as long as your weight remains stable. Unlike conventional liposuction, Dr. Markelov can perform the procedure under local anesthesia with much shorter recovery and essentially no downtime.

Are there any risks?

As with all surgeries, there are some risks associated with liposuction. The healthier you are, the less likely you are to experience any adverse side effects. Potential problems can include fluid accumulation, contour irregularities, infection, and numbness. Choosing a plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in liposuction procedures like Dr. Markelov will help reduce the chance of anything going wrong.
