  • Dieting and exercise are not working out to lose weight or tone your body

Dr. Williams Surgical Approach

The surgical approach to be pursued will be determined by the physical condition of the patient, as well as the desired results. Small incisions are made using a device known as a cannula. This is a stainless steel instrument that is connected to a suction pump and inserted in areas where excess fat needs to be removed. Dr. Williams makes these incisions in areas where they are well hidden underneath clothing and swimsuits. The duration of the procedure will vary depending on how much fat needs to be removed to achieve the desired contour.

During/After Your Liposuction in Baton Rouge and Alexandria

Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. The procedure is usually carried out in a single session. In some cases, though, the surgeon will advice that liposuction is performed over a period of time to ensure the health and safety of the patient. Patients are given a compression garment to wear after the surgery. This helps the body adjust to its new shape and weight. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling immediately after surgery, but this subsides within the first 7 days. The final results of liposuction procedure may take several months to manifest, depending on the complexity. Small scars and marks that are left during the procedure should fade out in due time. Most patients are able to recover within a week or two.

Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Liposuction for?

Liposuction removes fat cells by sucking them out of your body through a small tube. This procedure is useful for men and women who have lost weight by other means, such as diet and exercise, but maintain excess fat in specific areas, including the:

  • Hips  
  • Waist  
  • Thighs  
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Neck

If you’ve lost weight naturally, the same number of fat cells still exist in your body, they’re just smaller and contain less fat. This collection of extra fat cells makes achieving your ideal appearance difficult. Liposuction removes fat cells from problem areas and improves your body’s contour and proportion.


What doesn’t Liposuction improve?

Liposuction doesn’t improve the following:

  • Obesity
  • Cellulite
  • Loose or sagging skin


What is Tumescent Power-assisted Liposuction?

This technique injects fluid into the fat cells to fill, enlarge and expand them. Just like a balloon that has been overfilled, these enlarged fat cells are much easier to burst. The A suction cannula with high-frequency oscillations gently bursts the enlarged fluid-filled fat cells and removes them with suction. 


What’s recovery like after Liposuction?

After your Liposuction procedure, Dr. Williams places you in a tight-fitting elastic garment to decrease swelling, re-drape the skin, and help shape your new contour. You wear this for about a month.

The amount of fat removed and the number of treatment areas determines recovery time. You should be able to return to work in one or two weeks.
