Dr. David Stoker, board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, showing you the results on a 46-year-old very fit male. We did abdominal etching to carve out a six-pack here. You can see the definition that we created using power-assisted liposuction.
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are healthy adults who have good skin elasticity and focal collections of diet-resistant fat. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, so people who are obese should first try to lose weight through diet and exercise. Those who are unsuccessful at losing weight may benefit significantly from liposuction in limited areas.
How long is recovery from liposuction?
Recovery from liposuction is much faster than for most other surgical procedures. With my refined techniques, liposuction patients recover quickly and may return to work within a couple of days. Patients see substantial improvements immediately, and their results continue to get better over the course of 6 months as the swelling subsides.
Are liposuction results permanent?
Yes, the beneficial results of liposuction are permanent; but liposuction does not prevent weight gain in the future. In my practice, I’m pleased to say that many patients go on to lose weight following liposuction because they’re inspired by the improvements in their figure. Even patients who gain some weight are likely to look better than they would have without liposuction. Their most troublesome areas are improved either way. People who gain large amounts of weight are unlikely to have ideal figures—with or without liposuction.
