The abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, neck, upper arms all gain better definition. Dr. Lam is one of the premier plastic surgeons to offer liposuction to patients from all over Bucks County, PA, and the surrounding areas.

Liposuction FAQs

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?
The first thing to note is that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. Some people think of it as similar to bariatric surgery for weight loss, but this is not the case. Removing too much fat during a single liposuction procedure can actually be dangerous for the patient.

Liposuction aims to remove pockets of stubborn fat that are almost impossible to target and decrease with changes in diet and exercise. For this procedure, Dr. Lam wants his patients to generally be within 10-15 percent of their ideal body weight. This weight should have been stable for some time.

To be an ideal candidate, the patient should still have good skin elasticity so that the skin can tighten down to the new slimmer contours after the fat is removed.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?
Liposuction is the most effective method of removing stubborn pockets of fat that accumulate on areas such as the lower abdomen, outer thighs, upper arms, flanks, and even along the bra line area. Just about everyone, regardless of their level of physical conditioning has these pockets of fat. Because of their location, these pockets are almost immune to being affected by dietary changes or exercise.

Liposuction with Dr. Lam…

  • Removes stubborn fat pockets
  • Slims the contour of the target areas
  • Does not create any noticeable scarring
  • Involves only a short recovery
  • Is not overly painful
On What Areas Can Dr. Lam Use Liposuction?
A better question would be where can’t liposuction be used? Dr. Lam uses liposuction to remove fat in the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, inner knees, chest, cheeks, chin, calves, and ankles.
What are the Risks Involved with Liposuction?
As with any major surgery, liposuction carries risks, such as bleeding, infection, and a reaction to anesthesia. Specific risks to liposuction are:

  • Contour Irregularities — The skin surface may appear bumpy, wavy, or uneven. This is usually caused by poor skin elasticity or unusual healing.
  • Fluid Accumulation — Temporary pockets of fluid can form under the skin after your procedure, but these can be drained and are not permanent.
  • Numbness — The treated area may have temporary or permanent numbness.
  • Fat Embolism — Pieces of loosened fat can break away and become trapped in a blood vessel and gather in the lungs or travel to the brain. These are medical emergencies.
  • Internal Puncture — A cannula can penetrate too deeply and puncture an internal organ, but this is exceedingly rare situation.
What Should I Expect from Recovery After Liposuction?
Following your procedure, the areas treated will be wrapped to reduce swelling, bruising, and pain. These wrappings will be replaced by compression garments that you will wear over the treatment areas. This is an important part of your recovery. They will need to be worn on treated areas for one month following your liposuction. This not only reduces swelling, but also helps the skin and tissue adapt to their new contours. There will be some bruising and swelling that will take up to 10 days to clear itself. Most patients can return to work in two or three days, unless they have had multiple areas treated. In those cases, you may need a week off work. In most cases, scars are so small as to be virtually invisible.
Can I Have Liposuction if I am Going to Have More Children?
Liposuction shouldn’t be confused with a tummy tuck, which aims to remove loose sagging skin on the abdomen area. If you’re going to have more children a tummy tuck needs to wait. That’s not the case with liposuction. Liposuction simply removes stubborn pockets of fat, and they are then gone for good. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t develop new pockets if you gain a ton of weight during pregnancy and then are unable to lose all of it. Still, your slimmer contour gained through liposuction can be permanent if you simply maintain a healthy weight during pregnancy and moving forward after delivery.
How Long Will My Results From Liposuction Last?
These are permanent results. The fat Dr. Lam suctions away is gone for good. You will enjoy your slimmer contour for the rest of your life. All you need to do is maintain a healthy weight.
