Liposuction removes fat deposits on the body, face or neck. Bodily liposuction is used to slim the figure, while facial liposuction can slim facial contours, correct overly round faces, remove double chins and firm sagging jaw areas. This procedure may be carried out at an outpatient surgical facility or at a hospital. Dr. Engen consults with each patient to determine the best place for the surgery to be performed and whether local or general anesthesia will be used. Patients undergoing liposuction usually spend about two to three hours in surgery.
A wrap is worn for seven to ten days for physical support and improved recovery time following which patients are usually required to wear a surgical compression garment for an average of six weeks. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within two weeks of the procedure, and each patient should consult with Dr. Engen before resuming vigorous physical activity. This is usually possible within several weeks.
Like I have said before Dr. Gunther is the nicest doctor and I couldn’t be treated better than he does.
