Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do; stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge. When dieting and exercise aren’t giving you the results you want, liposuction could be a viable option for removing those irritating pockets of fat. Liposuction sculpts the body by removing localized deposits of fat through a vacuum-suction tube inserted under the skin. Commonly treated areas include the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, love handles but can also include the upper back, backs of the upper arms, knees, breasts, chin and neck.

Treatment

Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare is committed to providing the highest level of care and safety to its patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Nancy de Kleer will thoroughly assess your condition and conduct a general health assessment to determine treatment candidacy. Surgical procedures are performed in a fully accredited surgical facility. The administration of a general anaesthetic will be discussed and explained prior to your procedure. Our team of highly skilled professionals take every measure to ensure you’re fully informed and prepared for both pre- and post-surgical care.

How it works

A tumescent technique is used when performing liposuction, which allows for less post-operative swelling, bruising and discomfort. Anaesthetic solution is injected into the treatment areas, resulting in easier access to the targeted fat compartments. A cannula (narrow tube) is then placed under the skin and specific fat deposits are suctioned out. Dr. Nancy de Kleer and her team utilize the latest approaches and surgical techniques to achieve the best possible outcome.

Recovery

Bruising, swelling and temporary numbness are common following the procedure. These initial wound-healing responses often subside within seven to 10 days. A custom-fitted garment is worn for six weeks post-surgery to ensure proper healing. Dr. de Kleer will help you establish reasonable timelines and expectations for recovery. Patients can resume some regular activities within seven to 10 days post-treatment. Some swelling may be sustained for up to six months after surgery as the skin and tissues settle into their final place.
