Liposuction in Melbourne, FL
Liposuction improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits to give you a toned body. Lipo techniques have advanced over the years, and now men and women can enjoy more consistent results with minimal downtime. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers liposuction and other types of body contouring for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Liposuction?
Lipo is recommended for men and women who have areas of stubborn fat that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone. The unwanted fat is removed via a special tube and vacuum device. Dr. Castellon performs liposuction using the tumescent technique in which targeted fat cells are first infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic. The solution helps to shorten recovery time.
Benefits of Liposuction
Tumescent liposuction is preferred by Dr. Castellon because the procedure:
- Requires minimal downtime and recovery
- Uses only tiny incisions
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?
You should be close to your ideal weight before undergoing lipo as the procedure is not intended for weight loss. Liposuction can be performed on the:
- Upper arms
- Area above the breasts
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Liposuction?
Liposuction is only one of many ways to contour your body, and you should entrust your care to a board-certified plastic surgeon. Schedule a consultation at Castellon Plastic Surgery to find out if liposuction is the best option.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Liposuction?
Dr. Castellon performs liposuction in our facility. You should arrive at your scheduled time because there is some preparation that needs to occur before the procedure. After Dr. Castellon completes your liposuction, you will spend some time in our recovery area. A friend or family member should be available to drive you home.
Does Liposuction Require Surgery?
Lipo is a surgical procedure that is performed at our facility. The procedure requires very tiny incisions to allow the suction device to be inserted into the area of fat. Liposuction can take up to two hours depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of fat being removed.
What Should I Expect After My Liposuction?
Our patients are usually back to work within one to two weeks after their lipo procedures. You will need to avoid any strenuous activities for two to four weeks.
When Will I See Full Results of My Liposuction?
Full recovery is expected at six weeks post-operative. Final results are not seen until six months after lipo.
How Long Will the Results of Liposuction Last?
The results of liposuction are permanent as long as you maintain a sensible diet and exercise.
