What is Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery helps remove excess and stubborn fat that may be hard to lose with exercise. It sculpts your body to create an improved shape. While Liposuction is known for its fat removal process, it is the best procedure to help sculpt the patient’s body to achieve their ideal body shape. Liposuction is also often coupled with other plastic surgery procedures to help refine and sculpt the ideal body shape. Liposuction offers such detailed improvements to the body contour.

Additionally, Dr. Geers is one of the few Colorado Springs and Monument Plastic Surgeons who is a specialist in VASERLipo. Using the VASER in conjunction with liposuction gives the added benefit of skin tightening. Natural results require finesse and experience. The areas treated with liposuction should blend seamlessly with the areas next to them that have not had liposuction. Technique matters! 

How does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that can be performed safely in our office under local anesthesia, depending on the combinations of procedures you may have done.

Dr. Geers makes a small incision near the area that is being worked on. A cannula is used which is a thin tube, is inserted into the incision to loosen excess fat beneath the skin. The fat is then suctioned out through the tube. Depending on the number for areas that are treated, this procedure can last anywhere from one to three hours.

Procedure Recovery Time

With the advancements made in liposuction techniques, the equipment used helps minimize swelling, trauma and discomfort, and when this procedure is performed by a qualified surgeon, recovery can be a quick process. Many of our patients can return to work within a few days, depending on the demands of their job, and extent of their procedure.

Dr. Geers may also provide you with a compression garment to wear for a few weeks post-surgery. This garment helps minimize swelling and encourage optimal skin contraction. With our scar gel, and proper care, scars should also fade significantly over time, following your surgery. In many cases, scars are barely visible after a year or so.

How long will my results last?

Your results from your Liposuction procedure can last permanently with the proper care. Liposuction removes stubborn fat cells from your body, causing them to not grow back. However, it is important to maintain your weight with proper diet and exercise. If you take care of your body, your results will remain optimal.
