Liposuction removes excess fat from targeted areas such as the upper arms, back, abdomen, breast, outer and inner thighs, calves and ankles, and buttocks. This procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. Haque will discuss your concerns and desired results during your consultation.  Liposuction can be done alone or in combination with other procedures such as BodyTite or FaceTite for additional skin tightening.

Who is a candidate for liposuction / body contouring?

Liposuction is suitable for individuals who wish to improve their appearance and shape and want a better contour of their body areas such as arms, thighs, legs, abdomen, chest or buttocks.  No area is too small for liposuction.  Some patients have liposuction on targeted areas that are bothersome to them such as under the chin or near the underarm.  If you are not sure if an area is suitable for liposuction, call us to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Enam Haque, MD, FACS in Charlotte.  He will examine you, talk to you about your goals and desires and work with you to identify the treatment plan that is best for you.

Recovery after Liposuction

You will need someone to drive you home after the procedure, and stay with you for a bit.  Dr. Haque will discuss his recovery protocol to expedite your recovery with you during your consultation. While you will want to take it easy, walking after your surgery has been shown to speed recovery.  Also, depending on the area, Dr. Haque may suggest that you wear compression garments as you recover.  These garments are not the most comfortable but the compression will help in your recovery.  The incisions are typically small and heal quickly.  Dr. Haque will take great care in placement.
