Cost, Financing & Payment Plans
Cost is always an important factor when considering surgery. Dr. Truong and his highly trained staff are happy to work with you in going over your available financing options, including CareCredit, to make your liposuction simple and affordable.
Get a Comprehensive
Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
What to Expect
The best candidates for liposuction are people in good overall health who have areas of fat that simply won’t respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction isn’t a weight loss procedure, but can help eliminate areas of stubborn fat deposits that other methods haven’t helped. Patients who suffer from abdominal bulging caused by weak muscles are more likely to see better results from a more comprehensive body contouring procedure, such as a tummy tuck. These limitations aside, Dr. Truong will conduct an honest pre-surgery evaluation to decide which options will work best for you.
The pre-surgery consultation is a critical step in achieving your ideal results. During this time, Dr. Truong will perform a physical exam and listen to your personal hopes for the outcome of your liposuction. From there, he can advise you on what’s next.
In some cases, Dr. Truong may recommend that patients take several steps before surgery to improve their results. These can include making adjustments in your existing diet and exercise habits, along with other health-improving measures like quitting smoking. He’ll also give you detailed information about what to expect from your surgery as well as planning ahead for your recovery and results.
Preparing for Your Liposuction
Performing liposuction can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, depending on your goals for the procedure and the size of the area being treated. The surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you should be able to go home several hours after surgery.
Recovery & Results
While you will likely be sore for several days after getting liposuction, your individual recovery time will depend on the extent of the procedure. Bruising should disappear over the next several days, and any swelling can be better controlled by following Dr. Truong’s post-op instructions and remembering to stay mildly active. Dr. Truong may also recommend that you wear a special compression garment to promote healing and help you keep more comfortable.
Your new body contours should become more and more apparent as the healing process continues. Patients who commit to continued good health habits during their recovery and beyond can expect to enjoy beautiful results that can be maintained over a lifetime.
