Would I notice drastic liposuction results? (Photo)

Liposuction can really make a dramatic result.
Thank you for your question.
Liposuction surgery usually improves contours. In some instances it may be used in a circumferential fashion, thinning an area. Since the healing process is gradual, you should expect to wait at least several months to get an accurate picture of the results of your surgery. The small incisions used for access of the instrument – known as a cannula – will fade over a number of months usually becoming barely visible.
The results of liposuction surgery are usually long lasting, but they may be affected by weight gain, aging, and lifestyle factors. Best of luck!

Would liposuction help me?
Before really knowing if you will see great results, I recommend that you see a doctor experienced in various forms of liposuction and have a thorough assessment and consultation. In person examination is the BEST.
I hope that helps and best results, Dr. Sapijaszko.
