What are the Differences Between Male Liposuction and Female Liposuction?

Simply put, men and women have different goals from the same procedure. The primary differences between male liposuction and female liposuction are the areas treated and the specific techniques used to treat each area. While women would like a slim, sleek look, men are typically more interested in revealing muscle definition for a toned appearance.

What is Female Liposuction Surgery?

Liposuction is a safe, surgical procedure that permanently removes sections of subcutaneous fat cells. It is a versatile treatment aimed at targeting smaller deposits of fat to sculpt a leaner appearance. Traditionally, areas treated with liposuction include:

  • Waist & flanks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Neck
  • Other areas that do not respond to exercise or diet

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. However, it is the perfect way to address the areas of fat that diet and exercise cannot reach. Ideal candidates for liposuction are healthy women who are close to their target weight but might still have stubborn pockets of fat.

What are the Benefits of Female Liposuction?

We all want to look leaner. Female Liposuction in Sarasota, FL, might be the answer to reaching that slim figure you are working hard to achieve. Coupling liposuction with your current healthy lifestyle choices can help you by reducing the appearance of unsightly bulges and improving your body’s contours with long-lasting results.

Safe, effective female liposuction is a versatile treatment that can provide smooth, well-defined curves in many places. After your liposuction procedure, the fat cells removed will not grow back. However, the remaining fat cells can still grow larger, so maintaining a healthy diet and exercise is necessary.

What Options for Female Liposuction in Sarasota, FL Can I Choose From?

At Florida Plastic Surgery, you can be confident in your female liposuction options and in Dr. Kristopher Hamwi, your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon.

Dr. Hamwi often uses a technique called awake liposuction. The procedure is completed while the patient is medicated, yet still awake and able to participate in the procedure by contracting muscles in differing positions.

This technique allows Dr. Hamwi to have utmost control when sculpting your new figure. Awake liposuction is a much safer procedure than traditional liposuction because patients are not under general anesthesia. You can see which method of liposuction is right for you when you meet with Dr. Hamwi in a consultation.

What Can I Expect During a Female Liposuction Procedure?

Each patient will have a unique plan that they and Dr. Hamwi formulated during the consultation and other preoperative appointments. However, all liposuction procedures will have some general steps:

After you arrive at our plastic surgery center approximately an hour before your scheduled surgery, you will meet with Dr. Hamwi and your anesthesia provider. You will either receive local or general anesthesia, depending on your specific plan.

Once you are safely anesthetized, Dr. Hamwi will begin your liposuction procedure by making small incisions at the treatment site. These are typically about the size of a grain of rice or smaller and are placed in areas where they can be as hidden as possible

During liposuction, the treatment areas are injected with a solution that contains saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine to numb the tissue, control bleeding, and prepare the tissue for extraction. This is often referred to as tumescent liposuction.

Once the fat is isolated, it is gently extracted from the treatment site with a thin hollow rod, leaving you with a smoother, slimmer figure.

After your liposuction procedure, dressings will be applied, and you may be outfitted in compression garments.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Female Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for Female Liposuction in Sarasota, FL, include healthy women who are close to their target body weight but may still have pockets of stubborn fat. Liposuction is a body sculpting treatment rather than an alternative to healthy weight-loss, so it isn’t for those who are significantly overweight.

What Can I Expect During My Female Liposuction Recovery?

Typically, the procedure requires three to five days of downtime before returning to normal activities. Most patients are able to return to work in about three days.

After your procedure, most patients notice immediate improvements to their shape. However, you may experience swelling, the body’s natural reaction, that might temporarily obscure your results. This will subside within a few weeks.

You will continue to see improved results as your body heals over the next few months. As your body adjusts to its new contours, the treated areas will have a leaner appearance.

As Dr. Hamwi is dedicated to his patients, he will educate you on ways to maintain your results, including maintaining your healthy diet and exercise regimen. You can reach out to Dr. Hamwi and our team at any point and will see us for regular follow-up appointments.
