Who Are the Best Candidates for Liposuction?

Liposuction is best for people who are generally in good shape but have specific “trouble spots” that are particularly resistant to diet and exercise. If you’re considering liposuction, keep in mind that it’s not a weight-loss solution or an effective option for patients who are significantly overweight.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

In Chicago’s North Shore area, liposuction surgery typically costs $2,000 to $10,000. The actual cost of a liposuction procedure depends on several factors, which include:

During your consultation, we provide you with a document that details the estimated cost of your liposuction surgery. We encourage you to take it home, look it over, consider your options, and make an informed decision.

How Does Liposuction Work?

In most cases, Dr. Sisco performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. Once you are asleep, he makes small, well-concealed incisions on or around your desired treatment area and inserts a thin tube called a cannula beneath the skin. Dr. Sisco then dislodges and breaks apart the fat before suctioning it out of the body. He may use a special cannula that vibrates or emits ultrasound to make fat removal easier. After suctioning away the targeted fat, Dr. Sisco contours the remaining fat to ensure smooth results and even coverage before closing the incisions. You’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home after surgery.

Liposuction Recovery Time

Depending on the extent of your procedure, you may need to take up to 1 week off from work and other social obligations. You will also need to wear a supportive compression garment in order to reduce swelling and facilitate healthy healing. Dr. Sisco prescribes pain medication to keep you comfortable during the healing process.

When Will I See My Results After Liposuction?

Depending on the amount of fat removed, post-op swelling decreases within 1 to 3 months, revealing your beautiful new contours.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Last?

Liposuction patients can enjoy their results indefinitely by adhering to reasonable diet and exercise habits and avoiding any significant weight fluctuations.

I am very pleased to write this letter to say ‘thank you’ to you and your staff for the outstanding job you have all done. I was apprehensive at first in letting my son have a cosmetic surgical procedure done, but once we met with you, I felt completely comfortable and had no worries that he was in good hands. From our first visit, you and your staff made us feel welcome and showed a genuine concern for my son’s appearance and wellbeing — and didn’t look at him like just another patient wanting to look better. The surgery went just as you thought it would, and you were pleased with the outcome, as was I. I just can’t say enough about you and your staff. From beginning to end, it was more than a pleasure to deal with you all — and should there ever be a need in our future for any more procedures, you will be our first and only choice.
