Before & After Liposuction Procedures

LA Plastic Surgery in Sarasota and Bradenton offers Liposuction to it’s clients. Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Although liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to traditional weight-loss methods.

If you’re considering liposuction in the Sarasota & Bradenton areas, this page will give you a basic understanding of the procedure – when it can help, how it is performed and how you might look and feel after surgery. Please Dr. Lacerna if there is anything about the procedure you don’t understand.

The Best Candidates for Liposuction in Sarasota County

The best candidates for liposuction are normal-weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin. Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, and poor blood circulation, or smokers.

Planning Your Liposuction

In your initial consultation, Dr. Lacerna will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. She may recommend alternative methods of treatment. For example, if you believe you want liposuction in the abdominal area, you may learn that an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck may more effectively meet your goals. Be frank in discussing your expectations with Dr. Lacerna. Again, she will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding vitamins, iron tablets and certain medications. Be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after liposuction, and to help you at home for a day or two.

I believe that a sense of well-being stems from feeling good, looking good, and having meaning and accomplishment in your life.
