Liposuction Preparation — Liposculpture Pittsburgh
Liposuction preparation is an important phase in the surgery process. For those who eat well and regularly exercise, genetics could be the reason for stubborn, localized fat deposits in areas such as the abdomen or thighs.
With liposuction preparation, it helps to know what to expect when thinking about your procedure. Liposuction has three major steps: pre-operative, surgery, and recovery, each just as important as the other. During liposuction preparation, you will sit down with board-certified surgeon Dr. Brian Heil for a detailed consultation. Here, your specific goals will be addressed. You will also be asked to adhere to some precautionary measures before surgery.
You may be instructed to get a lab test or medical evaluation and to take or adjust certain medications. Avoid smoking and aspirin in the weeks leading up to surgery. Depending on the complexity of the surgery, you’ll need to arrange transportation for after your procedure is done.
