Dr. Andrea Doyle performs liposuction at her Rhode Island plastic surgery practice to assist patients in reducing stubborn fat from the face or body. As we get older, it is common to struggle with problem areas, which despite regular exercise and a healthy diet, seem resistant to change. With personalized liposuction procedures, Dr. Doyle can deal with these areas of subcutaneous fat and help patients achieve their desired physiques.
Who is liposuction surgery for?
Liposuction is a fat reduction procedure for those who have reached a healthy weight, but who have plateaued with traditional methods and are still struggling with specific areas of excess fat. It is important to note that this surgical procedure neither treats obesity nor is it an alternative to diet and exercise.
Liposuction is effective at reducing fat from common problem areas such as the love handles, abdomen, chest, back, thighs, or the face and neck. When you come in for your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Doyle, she will listen to your expectations and do a thorough examination before developing a unique, personalized approach for your liposuction procedure.
What alternatives does Dr. Doyle offer for Liposuction?
If your main concern is some excess submental fat that is causing the appearance of a double chin, Dr. Doyle may recommend Kybella™ as a non-surgical option.
Once excess fat is removed with liposuction, you may experience some areas of skin laxity. Dr. Doyle can perform a non-surgical laser skin tightening procedure to help further enhance your body’s new contours.
Questions about Liposuction?
The liposuction fat reduction procedure
Dr. Doyle is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is experienced in providing patients with a smooth and well-balanced reduction of fat using liposuction. Her personalized approach with each of her patients allows Dr. Doyle to achieve results that look as natural as if the fat had been lost in the gym and kitchen.
Liposuction is performed by making a small incision in the skin near the problem area of fat. Dr. Doyle then inserts a thin tube (known as a cannula) through the incision and into the underlying layer of fat. This cannula is connected to a surgical pump, which will help to safely remove fat cells from your body. Dr. Doyle will gently maneuver the cannula around the problem area to carefully sculpt your desired contour. Her years of experience and keen aesthetic eye allow Dr. Doyle to achieve beautifully natural outcomes for her patients.
Liposuction recovery and results
Liposuction recovery will be different for each patient depending on how much fat is removed from which area. You will be able to return home on the day of your surgery under the care of a loved one. Due to the effects of the general anesthesia used for your surgery, it will be a day or two before it is safe for you to drive.
As soon as your surgery is complete, you will notice an immediate slimming of your treated area. Some bruising and swelling is to be expected, but this will fade over the following weeks. You should be able to return to work within a week after your liposuction treatment, but you will need to avoid higher levels of activity or exercise for about six weeks.
Your liposuction procedure with Dr. Doyle will help to achieve the slimmer and healthier-looking figure you’ve been wanting. Our patients are often thrilled when they see their results in the mirror and can’t wait to try on new clothes or show off their new figure at the beach, pool, or with their partners. In addition to beautiful outcomes, liposuction often provides men and women with life-changing boosts in self-confidence so they can feel more confident in their daily lives. With continued healthy lifestyle habits, patients can continue to enjoy the results of their liposuction for many years to come.
