Heading into your liposuction consultation day, you will likely feel excited, maybe a little anxious and will have tons of questions. In all of the excitement of the day, it can be easy to forget to ask everything on your mind.
Jot down these three questions to ask about getting liposuction, as well as any others you may have, and bring them to your consultation so you have a productive, positive appointment.
1. What Liposuction Technique Is Best for Me?
Several liposuction techniques are available, each with its own set of benefits. Traditional tumescent liposuction remains a popular option, although there are now also more advanced liposuction techniques, such as VASER® LipoSelection®, that may offer even more comprehensive results.
The right lipo technique for you will depend on your specific goals and body type, so getting your plastic surgeon’s opinion at your consultation is a must.
VASER LipoSelection uses ultrasound energy to target unwanted fat cells, making it a less-invasive option than traditional lipo.
2. When Can I Return to Work after Liposuction?
It’s important to have realistic expectations about your liposuction recovery ahead of time so you can plan accordingly. Liposuction recovery times can vary from person to person and will also depend on the technique used. Generally speaking, however, most people are able to return to work within about a week after getting liposuction.
3. How Can I Prepare for My Liposuction Procedure?
Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource for helping you optimize your liposuction results, even before your procedure happens. Ask about both bigger-picture goals like weight loss prior to lipo, and short-term preparation steps like what to wear on the day of surgery to help you get the most out of body contouring.
