Benefits of Traditional Liposuction

Traditional Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of fat from specific areas of the body. Here are some key benefits:

  • Minimally Invasive: Traditional Liposuction is minimally invasive, which means it involves fewer risks than more extensive surgical procedures. It's typically performed under IV sedation, reducing the risk of complications associated with general anesthesia.
  • Leaves Smaller Scars: This procedure leaves smaller, less noticeable scars compared to other surgical methods. This is because it uses small incisions through which a thin tube (cannula) is inserted to suction out the fat.
  • Effective Fat Removal: Traditional Liposuction can effectively remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body such as the stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. This leads to improved body contouring and a more desirable aesthetic appearance.
  • Permanent Fat Removal: Once the fat cells are removed from a particular area, they do not regenerate. This means that if a healthy lifestyle is maintained post-procedure, the results can be long-lasting.

What Can Traditional Liposuction Address?

Traditional Liposuction can address a variety of issues related to body fat and contouring. Here are some key points:

  • Excess Body Fat: The primary issue that Traditional Liposuction addresses is the removal of excess body fat in specific areas where it's difficult to lose through diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
  • Body Contouring: Liposuction can enhance the shape and contours of your body, improving your overall appearance and boosting your self-confidence.
  • Certain Medical Conditions: In some cases, liposuction is used to treat certain medical conditions, such as lipomas (benign fatty tumors), gynecomastia (where fat accumulates under a man's breasts), or lipodystrophy syndrome (a fat metabolism disturbance).

Ideal Candidates for Traditional Liposuction

  • Individuals who are within 30% of their ideal weight and have firm, elastic skin.
  • Non-smokers.
  • Adults whose fat deposits do not respond well to diet or exercise.
  • Those free from health conditions that could impede healing.
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
  • Those committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and fitness.
  • People looking for body contouring rather than weight loss.
  • Individuals who experience discomfort due to excessive localized fat.

  • Consultation

    During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your goals, assess your health, and explain the traditional liposuction procedure in detail. He will guide you throughout the process, ensuring a comfortable journey towards your aesthetic goals.

    Treatment Options

    There are alternative fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting, laser lipolysis, and ultrasound liposuction. Dr. Truong will discuss these alternatives during your consultation to help you make an informed decision.

    What happens during Traditional Liposuction?

    Traditional liposuction involves making small incisions in the skin and inserting a tube to suction out fat. You may feel mild discomfort during the procedure, which is performed under anesthesia. Post-procedure, expect to see immediate changes in the body's contour, which will continue to improve as swelling reduces.


    Recovery varies from person to person but generally involves wearing compression garments, taking prescribed medication for pain management, and refraining from strenuous activities for a few weeks. Gradually, you'll see the full, stunning results of the procedure.

    Post-Operative Care

    After surgery, you'll need to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and maintain the new body shape. Rest is essential, as is avoiding strenuous activity. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Truong will ensure a smooth recovery.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Traditional Liposuction is an effective method for addressing mild to moderate body fat and contouring issues. Here's how it can address these problems:

    • Localized Fat Deposits: If you have mild to moderate fat deposits in certain areas of your body that are resistant to diet and exercise, Traditional Liposuction can effectively remove these fat cells. This includes areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, back, arms, and even under the chin.
    • Body Contouring: Traditional Liposuction can significantly enhance your body contours by removing unwanted fat. It can help sculpt areas of your body for a more proportional and aesthetic look.
    • Double Chin: If you have a mild to moderate double chin caused by excess fat, liposuction can be used to remove this fat and improve the appearance of your neck and jawline.
    • Lipomas: These are benign fatty tumors that can occur anywhere in the body. Liposuction can be used to remove these tumors.
    • Axillary Hyperhidrosis: This is a condition characterized by excessive sweating in the armpits. For some individuals, liposuction can be used to reduce the number of sweat glands, and thus the amount of sweat produced.

    Traditional Liposuction FAQs

    How is Traditional Liposuction performed?

    In Traditional Liposuction, the surgeon makes small incisions in the skin and inserts a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula is used to loosen the fat, which is then suctioned out of the body.

    Is Traditional Liposuction painful?

    Patients are usually given local or general anesthesia during the procedure to minimize discomfort. Post-procedure, there may be some soreness, swelling, and bruising, but these should diminish over time.

    What are the potential risks or complications of Traditional Liposuction?

    While liposuction is generally safe, like any surgery, it carries some risk. Potential complications include infection, bleeding, reactions to anesthesia, changes in skin sensation, damage to underlying structures, and unsatisfactory results.

    Does Traditional Liposuction help with weight loss?

    Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It's a body contouring method designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
