Since its inception in 1978, lipo has been used to contour the bodies of millions of patients. You can determine if lipo is right for you by learning what it is and how it is performed on patients in Baton Rouge today. Of course, our surgeon can help you find out for sure during a consultation at our office.
What is Lipo?
Lipo is a cosmetic procedure that is typically performed on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our surgical suite in Baton Rouge. During the procedure, fat is skillfully removed from preselected areas. So if you are dealing with stubborn fat on your abdomen, fat can be removed from this area. Or if you are dealing with pesky fat on your thighs or arms, it can be removed during a lipo procedure. Some of the most common treatment areas include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, ankles, and neck.
This is considered to be a safe cosmetic procedure. Many of our patients in Baton Rouge appreciate the speed at which the operation can be done, as well as how fast they can get back to their normal routines after their lipo procedures.
How is it Performed?
As mentioned, your lipo procedure can be performed in our state-of-the-art surgical center in Baton Rouge. Our doctor will mark the areas to be treated before cleaning off the skin. During the procedure, the fat is removed using specialized techniques.
You can expect to go home to recuperate the same day after you are deemed stable enough and free from complications. Our doctor will tell you to rest and limit your activities for a set amount of time after the procedure. Once you have fully recovered, you won’t believe what a difference lipo has made for you.
