How long before I can go back to work?

December 21, 2011

Many of our patients are able to return to work the next day, depending on the areas treated. All patients should be able to return to normal desk-type work within 1 to 2 days and although soreness and tenderness will limit the speed with which a patient can move about, patients should be reasonably comfortable while sitting at a desk or working at a computer. Many patients are able to enjoy a dinner out the very same evening of their surgery.

How much bruising or swelling will I have?

, bruising and swelling are minimized. DreamBody Specialists use only small insertion points, which do not require stitches. Therefore, our patients experience much less bruising and swelling than conventional liposuction techniques.

Will I be awake or under general anesthesia?

December 21, 2011

You will be wide awake because our remarkable new techniques are so minimally invasive that they only require simple local numbing of the skin, NOT heavy anesthesia. This translates into far faster recovery, less downtime and most importantly, the safest possible means of performing

liposuction

. DreamBody even offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during the procedure for those patients who so desire.

What happens if I gain weight after liposuction?

December 21, 2011

If you gain weight after

liposuction

, you will gain it proportionally in areas that were treated. It is possible to gain weight again in the treated areas, but not to the same extent as prior to the procedure since a high percentage of the fat cells in that area have been permanently removed.

How much fat can the Advanced DreamBody Liposuction Procedure remove?

December 21, 2011

DreamBody Specialists can safely remove up to 70% of the fat in a treated area. The percentage of fat removed depends on the amount of fat present, the fibrosity of the patient’s fat (some patients have harder fat than others), and the aesthetic goal to be achieved. A good way to estimate your final results is to pinch the area you want to have treated and feel how deeply the muscles are beneath the skin. Feeling the muscle is most easily done by contracting the muscle and rubbing your hands over the skin. The distance between the skin and the outside of the tensed muscle is the thickness of your

fat layer

. If you would be satisfied with a 50% reduction in the fat layer, you would be a good candidate and pleased with your results.
