Liposuction is a surgical procedure for men and women who want to improve the shape of their body by removing areas of unwanted fat. Liposuction is commonly performed on the neck, arms, chest, back, abdomen, flanks, thighs or legs. If desired, this fat can be transferred to other areas of the body to increase the size and shape of these areas, such as a Brazilian Butt Lift or breast augmentation using fat.
During your consultation you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals and talk to Dr. Hayes about the look that you want to achieve. Dr. Hayes will discuss liposuction procedures and explain whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Some patients may do best with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck. Dr. Hayes will explain all of the options to help you decide which procedures will help you obtain your goals.
The procedure is performed as a same-day procedure in a state-of-the-art Medicare certified operating room. You’re cared for by board certified physician anesthesiologists from Swedish Hospital’s anesthesia group. Most patients can return to activities/work within a few days to a week, depending on the physical demands.
After the surgery Dr. Hayes stays in close contact with every patient to make sure that he’s available to answer any questions that may arise.
