Liposuction is a procedure that reshapes and contours the body by removing stubborn, often exercise resistant fat deposits. There are different types of Liposuction procedures and Dr. Harrell will determine which procedure is best for you during your consultation. These procedures can be performed on many different parts of the body including neck, abdomen, thighs, hips, and more.
Are You a Candidate for Lipo?
Typically, patients over the age of 18 that are normal weight but have fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise are good candidates. Patients need to understand that for optimal results a patient must maintain a healthy lifestyle so the results are long lasting.
Consultation in Tampa Bay
When you arrive at the Fountain of Youth Institute®, you will be greeted by our warm and caring staff. During the consultation, you will have an opportunity to meet with Dr. Harrell to discuss your specific areas of concern and together develop a treatment plan that will provide you with your desired results. After your physical examination, Dr. Harrell will be able to identify the specific method of Liposuction that he will perform in order to achieve the results you desire.
The consultation is a great time to ask any questions about the procedure, the anticipated recovery process, and to address any fears or concerns you might have. Dr. Harrell is available to answer any questions you have about the procedure.
Many factors can contribute to your recovery experience. Typically, a patient can expect several days of discomfort followed by a few weeks of restricted physical activity during the post-operative period. Pain medication is prescribed to you prior to surgery to minimize your discomfort. Many of our patients return to work within a few days but strenuous physical activity is limited for a few weeks. Any concerns you have about recovery should be discussed with Dr. Harrell.
