It is not uncommon to have pockets of fat in various areas of the body, including stubborn pockets that do not respond to rigorous diet and exercise. Through liposuction, it is possible to eliminate that unwanted fat for a thinner, more streamlined, and more contoured appearance. Dr. Robert Frank, a board-certified plastic surgeon with over two decades of experience, leads the way in delivering safe, proven, and effective liposuction procedures near Crown Point, IN.

The Benefits of Liposuction

  • Targeted Precision: Liposuction can precisely address fat pockets in various body areas, including thighs, lower legs, arms, neck, back, and abdomen. The precision of liposuction makes it a versatile and effective treatment.
  • Safety First: This procedure ensures the safe removal of unwanted fat by specifically targeting fat cells without affecting other bodily components.
  • Permanent Results: Enjoy enduring results as liposuction permanently removes fat cells, offering a timeless transformation.
  • Beyond Diet and Exercise: Liposuction proves effective in treating areas resistant to traditional diet and exercise efforts. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It just allows your body to have a slimmer appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate?

It is Generally Ideal For:

  • Patients with healthy, elastic skin.
  • Individuals in overall good health with no underlying conditions increasing surgical risk.

It is Not So Great For:

  • Patients with serious, unmanaged health issues like diabetes or heart disease.
  • Patients with poor skin elasticity.
  • Individuals without a stable, maintainable body weight.

How Old Do I Have to Be?

Candidacy for liposuction is less about age and more about the health and elasticity of your skin. Anyone who is 18 or older can potentially be a good candidate for a safe, successful procedure.

The Procedure Process Explained

Dr. Frank personalizes each treatment plan, aligning it to the needs and goals of the specific patient. With that said, every liposuction process shares a few important steps.

The Consultation & Preparation

The first step in the process is having a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Frank. During this consultation, Dr. Frank will perform a physical examination and record a basic medical history, ensuring the patient’s suitability for liposuction. This is also an opportunity for patients to ask any questions they may have about the surgery, recovery, and results.

In some cases, Dr. Frank might provide special guidelines to help patients prepare for their liposuction. This may involve pausing certain medications or supplements until after the recovery process is complete.

What Is Surgery Like?

On the day of surgery, patients receive a warm welcome from office staff. Liposuction is performed with general anesthesia, ensuring comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

Once the patient is fully sedated, Dr. Frank will create a small incision in the target treatment areas, and then inject a fluid that helps release fat cells. A small tool called a cannula is inserted to help suction out the unwanted fat cells.

What Shoud I Expect in Terms of Recovery?

For most patients, liposuction recovery is very quick and relatively easy. Patients can expect to be back on their feet within two or three days. Dr. Frank often advises wearing a compression garment over the treated area for 4-6 weeks, which helps ensure a more toned and even appearance.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, which means the results can potentially last a lifetime. The longevity of the results is contingent on the patient maintaining a generally healthy lifestyle and avoiding major weight fluctuations.
