Liposuction in Barrie
Lipoplasty Surgery in Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Bracebridge, Collingwood & Southern Ontario
Women and men who are not overweight but have isolated areas of fat that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise are good candidates for liposuction. Liposuction is not effective for cellulite. Liposuction can be effective on many areas of the body: arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, ankles, and under the chin. You are more likely to get good results from this procedure if your skin has good tone and elasticity which helps to achieve a smooth result following fat suctioning.
Dr. Tumi, an experienced Barrie liposuction surgeon, will assess the quality of your skin and may ask you how your areas of localized fat were affected by weight loss in the past.
Fat is removed by first inserting a small tube (a cannula) through tiny incisions close to the area to be suctioned. Incisions are very small – usually under a quarter inch.
While the majority of women do not experience complications, it’s important to understand and discuss the risks with Dr. Tumi during your consultation.
Dr. Tumi’s liposuction patients may be asked to wear a compression garment for the first several days after surgery so that the tissue can “learn” its new shape.
You can usually return to work in just a few days, though you may still have some swelling and bruising which usually subsides within a couple of weeks. It is not uncommon for a touch up to be required later to further improve an area that has been treated.
