People often have areas of their body that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Robert Frank, MD Plastic Surgery helps patients reduce unwanted pockets of fat through liposuction. Patients from Munster, Hobart, Crown Point, and Frankfort often ask us to treat their:

  • Thighs and lower legs.
  • Hips, abdomen, and back.
  • Arms and neck.

Dr. Frank can also move this fat to areas of the body that patients want to emphasize or re-contour. Our practice often combines liposuction with other plastic surgeries, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift, reducing our patients’ overall recovery time.*

Dr. Frank’s Approach to Liposuction

In an initial consultation, Dr. Frank talks with patients about their areas of concern and what they want to achieve. He explains what liposuction can realistically accomplish and may recommend additional procedures depending on the patient’s needs.

This is important because liposuction is not ideal as a weight-loss surgery alone. Instead, Dr. Frank uses liposuction to help patients contour specific trouble-spots, creating a slimmer and more aesthetically-pleasing appearance.*

By the end of the consultation, patients receive a price quote covering everything they can expect to pay, excluding postoperative medications. Though some plastic surgeons only price out the surgery, Dr. Frank wants patients to make their surgical decision based on all of the facts.

About the Procedure

Following preoperative testing and surgical scheduling, patients receive care in an accredited surgical facility near Hobart and Munster. Liposuction takes place under general anesthesia so that patients stay safe and comfortable throughout the treatment. During surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank:

  • Makes a small incision in the targeted area.
  • Injects fluid that anesthetizes the area, restricts blood vessels, and helps release fat cells.
  • Uses a small cannula to suction out fat, contouring the area to a slimmer shape.

Recovery from Liposuction

Liposuction offers a relatively fast recuperation. Most of Dr. Frank’s patients are back on their feet within a day or two.* Typically, they wear a compression garment over the area treated, which helps to reduce spaces where fat used to live and give a more even appearance.*

Patients can usually see their results almost immediately. Liposuctioned areas should look slimmer and create a smoother transition from one area of the body to the next.*
