Perhaps liposuction of the back and waist, performed by the surgeons of Associates in Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach is for you.
What is back liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is performed to remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the back and waist. A cannula is inserted through a tiny incision, usually in inconspicuous areas. Tumescent liposuction is the injection of a specialized composite fluid into a specific area, which helps reduce the bleeding and facilitate liposuction.
Am I a candidate for back liposuction?
Liposuction of the back and waist are usually performed in conjunction with liposuction of the abdomen, as well as other areas. Fatty deposits (bulges) on the back respond well to liposuction in patients of all ages. The best results are achieved in patients 45 years of age and younger, due to their increased skin elasticity. Older patients also achieve good results, depending on their skin’s elasticity and the areas to be liposuctioned.
How long is recovery from back liposuction?
Your surgeon may place you in a compression garment or wrap immediately following surgery. Wear this exactly as directed. Remove it only as directed for cleansing incisions or showering.
You will need a few weeks to recover and fully heal from back liposuction. It will be at least one or two weeks before you can return to work.
