If you have a little additional fat and you would like to contour your body, you may find liposuction is the perfect solution to do so. Liposuction helps patients that are close to reaching their ideal weight and body composition goals that need a little extra help.
For the best liposuction services available, reach out to The Lipo Group and set an appointment. We specialize in outstanding liposuction services at affordable costs. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a medical procedure that involves a doctor removing fat from a patient’s stomach, face, neck, hips, upper shoulder area, torso, calves, knees, and/or ankles. While many people believe liposuction is for weight loss, this is a bit of a misconception. While it can help with losing some of the final pounds, it is mainly intended for body contouring and not as a weight loss method. Instead, it is a good solution for those that have a proper diet and exercise routine but have trouble losing those last few pounds. We expect patients to be within a relatively normal body weight before we consider performing a liposuction procedure.
The process of the procedure involves the injection of a solution that magnifies the treatment area and decreases the bleeding. The solution may also include a numbing agent. Fat is then removed from the patient using specialized tools.
If you find that you have excess, stubborn fat deposits and weight that won’t go away, contact The Lipo Group. We’ll provide you with an expert consultation to see if you are a good candidate for liposuction.
We also offer fat transfer services for those that have some extra fat that they would like moved elsewhere.
What is Lipo 360?
There are a few different types of liposuction procedures to choose from. One popular choice is Lipo 360. This form of liposuction includes the abdominals, obliques, and mid to lower back of the patient. Essentially, this covers the full 360 degrees of the midsection of the patient.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lipo 360?
There are a few things that will need to be considered to see if you are a good candidate for Lipo 360. In order to better understand if you are a good candidate, it’s important to remember who liposuction is intended for. For those that exercise regularly and follow a good diet, Lipo 360 may be an option. Generally, a patient should be within 25 pounds of their target weight. It’s also good for patients to be non-smokers.
There are some medical issues that may exclude you from a liposuction procedure. These include lung disease, heart disease, circulatory problems, and other health conditions that may pose a risk.
To learn more about whether or not you are a candidate for Lipo 360, reach out to The Lipo Group and speak with one of our team members. We’ll advise you on what conditions exclude patients and provide you with more information to see if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. We can then schedule you an appointment to meet with the doctor for an examination.
What Does Liposuction 360 Cost? What Are the Costs of Other Liposuction Options?
The cost of liposuction varies depending on a few different factors. Some of these factors include the type of procedure, the specific practice, what parts of the body are being addressed, and more. Because of this, it’s difficult to give an exact estimate without speaking with you and learning more about what services are required. With that said, some of the average costs include:
· Lipo 360: Around $5,000-$9,000
· Tumescent: Around $2,000-$10,000
· Smart Lipo: Around $3,000-$7,500
These are ballpark estimates, and the exact costs for your procedure may vary. We’d be happy to schedule an appointment with you to learn more about your needs and provide you with a more accurate estimate.
Preparing for the Lipo 360 Procedure
There are a few things you’ll want to do to prepare for your liposuction procedure. First, you need to make sure you get within 25 pounds of your healthy body weight. It’s important to maintain this weight loss. You should also avoid anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin before the procedure. Your doctor will provide you with detailed information on what you should and shouldn’t do before and after the procedure. Make sure you follow these instructions completely. It’s important for the success of the procedure and your own safety.
Can I Pay on Credit?
Paying for liposuction can be difficult for some patients. That’s understandable. That’s why we charge an affordable rate for our services. If you are having trouble paying upfront, though, we can connect you with companies we trust for financing your procedure. These include CareCredit, Alphaeon, and Greensky. For CareCredit, there are no-interest options if paid within a given time period.
If you would like more information about the financing options that are available, let us know. We will go over the different payment options and financing that are available. We’ll then see if we can find a financial option that meets your needs.
What is “Fat Transfer”? What Are the Types of Fat Transfer?
Once you have the fat removed, you may want to put it to good use! For some patients, fat transfer is a great option.
Fat transfer is the process of using the fat removed during the liposuction procedure and transferring those fat cells to a different part of the body. A surgeon can enhance, graft, and improve the appearance of other areas of the body using the fat that was removed!
The types of fat transfer include:
