What Is Liposuction?

Are you hoping to get rid of your stubborn, unwanted, excess fat—forever? Liposuction is one of the most advanced surgical treatments designed to permanently eliminate unwanted fat and contour curves for stunning body sculpting results.

Liposuction is one of the most frequently performed body contouring surgery in the world. It involves removing excess unwanted fat with suction from a tube called a cannula that is inserted in the body through small, discreetly placed incisions.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kai Morimoto is a master in the art of liposuction. At our office, we can provide treatments for all of your problem areas, including the back, belly, butt, legs, inner thighs, and arms. Whether you have one problem area or you are hoping for a full-body transformation, we invite you to contact our team today for more information about liposuction in Spokane.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a great choice for men and women of a variety of ages. The ideal liposuction candidate is a healthy adult who is approximately ten pounds within their goal weight, with a BMI below 25. You should also be free of any serious medical conditions and preferably a non-smoker with a healthy, active lifestyle to help you maintain your results.

To ensure liposuction in Spokane is the right choice to meet your needs and goals, you will meet with Dr. Morimoto for a consultation. During this initial visit, she will thoroughly review your health history, aesthetic concerns, and goals for the procedure to customize the best treatment plan for you. If liposuction surgery is not right for you, we are happy to discuss alternative treatment options.

Liposuction Recovery and Results

Liposuction requires plenty of rest, relaxation, and TLC for an optimal recovery. Our trusted medical team will provide you with detailed pre and post-procedure instructions during your consultation visit.

Typically, liposuction in Spokane is performed as an outpatient procedure. When you are released from our care, Dr. Morimoto may recommend the use of a compression garment to accelerate recovery time and help your skin to properly tighten around your new contours. These are typically worn for up to three weeks.

Depending on the area of the body you have liposuction, most patients can return to work and normal daily activities in a week or two. You should still avoid exercise and other strenuous activity during this time until you are cleared by your surgeon.

Some results will be immediately apparent. However, swelling is normal, and it may take a few weeks before it resolves enough to see your full final result.

Reasons To Consider Liposuction

Liposuction in Spokane works best for people who have pockets of unwanted fat that have not responded to dieting and exercise.
