Liposuction in Toronto, Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Am I the right candidate for Liposuction?

If you have stubborn areas of fat that are not affected by exercise and diet, like the outer thighs and hips on women, or the waist and back on men, then you may be a good candidate for liposuction in Toronto. Other patients get liposuction on areas like their face, neck, or upper areas of the arms. If you are not overweight and are looking to add contours to these areas, liposuction may be the answer for you. Ontario women and men throughout Toronto, Mississauga and surrounding areas of Richmond Hill and Markham have experienced great results from liposuction with Dr. Plant. With offices in Toronto and Orillia, patients from all over Canada can benefit from liposuction.

What is Liposuction in Toronto?

Liposuction in Toronto is the procedure which uses suction to remove excess fat from your body. During the procedure, Dr. Plant will insert a small, thin cannula (a blunt tipped tube) through tiny incisions on your skin. These are used to suction out fat as they are moved under your skin towards specific fat areas. There are various methods today which make liposuction less painful and safe. Dr. Plant may use one of the following liposuction techniques when undergoing Toronto Liposuction:

Tumescent Liposuction

Using a local anesthesia, the area where the cannula is to be inserted is numbed. A large dose of anesthetic solution containing epinephrine and lidocaine is injected into the fat tissue prior to performing traditional liposuction. This technique may not require general anesthesia.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

Fat is liquefied using ultrasound during this procedure. This makes the fat easier to remove, especially from the sides, upper abdomen and the back.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

In this procedure, low energy waves are used for liquefying the fat. This is then removed using a cannula.

Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction

Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL), a newer liposuction technique, offers cosmetic patients both skin tightening and fat removal in one procedure. RFAL is more effective and safer than ultrasound assisted and laser assisted liposuction. Radiofrequency energy delivered via the BodyTite system heats the skin and underlying fat. The fat is heated to the point where it becomes a liquid and is suctioned out from below the skin in a much gentler fashion than traditional liposuction. The energy also stimulates the skin causing collagen to regenerate, increasing the tightness and firmness of the skin. RFAL can also be done in conjunction with the CelluTite system to improve cellulite in addition to removing fat and tightening the skin.

You may see some improvement in the contours of your body immediately after the surgery. The improvement continues over the next several weeks or even some months as the swelling diminishes. The complete effects of your Toronto liposuction, however, are visible after about a year.

What can I expect from Liposuction in Orillia?

It is important to understand that liposuction for Toronto or Orillia patients does not assist in weight loss and is merely used for body contouring purposes. The procedure is mostly used on problem areas of your body that have remained unaffected by diet and exercise alone.

What is the recovery period from Liposuction?

Most Toronto patients will be able to move around immediately after the liposuction procedure once the effects of all sedation have worn off. As soon as you are comfortable, you may return to any normal activities.

Once the procedure is complete, the treated area is firmly wrapped to reduce bruising, swelling and any pain. Any garment that fits the area firmly, a supporting hose, elastic bandaging or a special girdle may be used depending on which part of the body is treated. You may have to wear this for about a month. You may experience swelling and bruising for the first week or so or your surgery.
