It can be frustrating when fat around your tummy, hips, arms, and legs just won't budge, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Dr. Sutton Graham can help you eliminate stubborn fat and achieve slimmer, sexier contours with liposuction.
Liposuction has helped many of our patients throughout Greenville, SC, achieve life-changing benefits...
A Closer Look at the Procedure...
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction? Factors to Consider...
You Are a Healthy Non-Smoker
The best candidates for any type of plastic surgery are non-smokers with good overall health. While your BMI does not determine your candidacy alone, the procedure tends to work best for patients within a healthy BMI range.
You're at a Healthy Weight
Lipo should not be performed if you are pregnant or intending to lose a substantial amount of weight. Weight loss can cause your skin to lose elasticity, especially when it happens quickly. While lipo will not address sagging skin, it can help you improve the proportions of your figure after weight loss, and can be incredibly beneficial when combined with other types of plastic surgery.
You Have Realistic Expectations
It is important that you have realistic expectations for the procedure and are choosing cosmetic surgery for the right reasons. Liposuction procedures can achieve incredible results, but it is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and will not magically cure all your body insecurities.
Your Treatment Timeline
Our patients in the greater Asheville and Spartanburg areas will undergo liposuction as an outpatient procedure at our Greenville surgical center. The surgery can take anywhere from one to four hours to complete and involves several steps...
Day of Procedure
Removing excess fat can encourage better lifestyle habits in the future.
Recovery and Results
Our Greenville surgical team will give you detailed instructions for managing pain and side effects after your treatment. We advise you to wear post-operative compression garments for several weeks to improve circulation and ensure the best aesthetic results. Most people will be able to return to work within one to two weeks after the procedure and can resume exercise after about six weeks.
Results become more easily visible over the first several weeks after treatment, at which time you’ll notice clothes fitting differently. The final results can take months to appear. To best maintain your results, it is important to practice a healthy lifestyle, get regular exercise, and eat a nutritious diet.
