Brazilian Butt Lifts Miami

The Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami knows that deciding to have any cosmetic surgery procedure is a very important decision. We want you to know all the facts and have all the latest information before you make a choice to surgically modify your body. We are here to help you make an informed decision and guide you in making all the decisions that are right for you. For many, those last few vestiges of fat that remain after all the exercise and diet hang around as a discouragement to all the hard work you did. Or you may just have those last few pounds of fat after having children. Whatever the case, liposuction can be an answer to those leftover fat problems that keep hanging around; however, you may wonder, “how effective is liposuction?”

Liposuction can be very effective for people who need to concentrate on small areas of stubborn fat deposits that linger even after diet and exercise have failed to eliminate them. Our doctors will evaluate each case to determine if you are candidate for liposuction. Liposuction has very good results in improving the contours of the human body in certain areas such as the thighs, hips and waist areas. It can also be used on arms and face, and is often used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck or a face lift. For liposuction to show the most results, the patient should be within a 25 pound range of healthy body weight and have limited health conditions.

You should be aware that sometimes, the best results from liposuction are not visible for some time after the procedure is done, often six months to a year. However, in the right conditions, liposuction is very effective in helping people achieve the final figure and shape they desire. If you are considering liposuction, make sure you are dealing with experienced doctors that are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. You can find that experience and certification, along with the best advice, help choosing your procedure and care for your health and safety, at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami.

Miami Liposuction Specialists

Our Miami liposuction specialists include our two board certified plastic surgeons. They are: Dr. Jason Altman and Dr. Marcelo Ghersi. Our doctors are well known for not only their expertise in performing cosmetic procedures with incredible results but also for their phenomenal bedside manner in caring for their patients both physically and mentally. They want you to look good and feel good about yourself. Our Miami liposuction specialists make every effort to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure and do their best to get you the results you desire. The actual procedure of liposuction involves removing excess fat deposits that are still visible even after dieting and exercise has gotten you to most of your goals.  Sometimes these little fat deposits remain, giving the body a pudgy appearance.

Liposuction requires small incisions in which tubes are inserted to vacuum out the fat deposits. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia depending on the areas targeted and the amount of fat to be removed. Recovery from liposuction is typically very quick and most of the time patients are allowed to go home the same day. Many patients can even get up and move around immediately following the procedure after the anesthesia has worn off. However, be prepared for significant bruising and some swelling that may last for several weeks or months. You will be given follow up care and instructions, and you can expect to see full results after a few months of the procedure even though most patients initially see immediate results that will continue to improve over the next several months to a year.
