Liposuction in Randallstown with Dr. Janet Woodyard

Procedure Details


Liposuction to Improve Contour

Liposuction can be performed as a solitary procedure or combined with other procedures, like tummy tuck, to smoothe and improve contour of the treated areas. Liposuction is typically performed under tumescence which is the infiltration of fluid to failitate the procedure and improve the results. Most tumescent fluid contains lidocaine for pain control and epinephrine to lower blood loss. The fluid also helps liquify the fat to allow for a smoother result. The fluid is necessary when ultrasonic liposuction is performed.

Post operative compression with a garment is recommended for 6 weeks. Restriction from strenous activity is usually for 4-6 weeks.
