Cleveland’s Best Liposuction

Cleveland Plasic Surgery Institute: Liposuction

At the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute we specialize in body contouring involving all techniques and procedures.  Liposuction assisted lipectomy (liposuction) is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures we perform.

Sometimes despite diet and exercise there can be stubborn fatty areas that just don’t go away.  It is likely from genetics but men and women tend to have gender specific problem areas.  Women often have excess fatty deposits in the thighs, hips, abdomen, and waistline.  Men tend to have the spare tire.  Liposuction is a wonderful technique to improve the shape of those problem spots.  Dr. Leedy is an expert at liposuction and offers Smartlipo, Vaser, and traditional liposuction techniques including SAFELipo and can tailor the specific treatment to your unique situation.

What to Expect

Liposuction is a procedure in which the fatty areas are literally suctioned out of the body.  The fat removal is permanent and the area treated is forever changed.  The technique can be performed with local anesthesia in the office for small areas or general anesthesia in the operating room for larger or multiple spots.  The length of the procedure depends on the size of the areas that are being treated.  It is performed as an outpatient procedure.  Usually recovery is quite quick.  A few days may be needed before returning to work but for smaller areas people can return to work the next day.  Compression garments are worn for a few weeks.  Results are noticed within a few days of the procedure but it takes 2-3 months until the new shape can be fully appreciated.  When it comes to surgical outcomes you cannot find nicer Cleveland plastic surgery results than what you will find with Dr. Leedy.

Body Contouring Options

Dr. Leedy of the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute is up to date on all body contouring procedures.  Sometimes liposuction isn’t necessary and a desirable improvement can be obtained with Smartlipo but other times more involved procedures such as an abdominoplasty really indicated.  Dr. Leedy can give you an honest assessment and recommend the correction treatment option in order to give you the result you are looking for.  Be cautious visiting an ENT, OBGYN, or other non-plastic surgeon for your body contouring procedures because they are not properly trained to offer the invasive surgical procedures and therefore you may not receive the best assessment about what procedure is best for you.
