The Top 8 Myths About Liposuction

By Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, Victoria Karlinsky, MD
Karlinksy, Lipo - Image

With so much misinformation being written about liposuction and body sculpting in general, Dr. Victoria Karlinsky decided it was time to provide the FACTS for those considering body sculpting.

Here it goes:

MYTH #1: Liposuction is a great tool for weight loss

THE FACT: Liposuction is not designed for weight loss. Rather it is intended to re-contour areas of your body where fat is resistant to diet or exercise.

MYTH #2: Once you have liposuction, the fat does not return

Karlinksy B&A Female
Liposuction can be performed anywhere on the body. The most popular areas include the arms, stomach, back, and thighs.

THE FACT: If you overeat, fat will return but it will be distributed differently and, most likely, stored in other areas of your body. My advice to patients is to protect your investment in improving how you look and feel…and eat wisely to maintain your beautiful new figure.

MYTH #3: Liposuction is painful

THE FACT: While there may be some mild discomfort after your treatment, we perform the most advanced and modern-day liposuction at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, which is not painful. In fact, we offer “Lunchtime Lipo” when only one area is being treated where patients can go right back to work. With treatment of multiple areas, you can resume your normal activities after a few days.

MYTH #4: After liposuction, you’ll have to wear a compression garment for three to six months

THE FACT: Liposuction used to require long-term compression garments but not anymore! Today, I recommend patients wear a compression garment for one-week day-and-night and another week part-time and then taper off.

MYTH #5: All liposuction requires general anesthesia

THE FACT: When one or two areas are being treated, local anesthesia is recommended. For multiple areas, I do use general anesthesia.

MYTH #6: Liposuction causes lumpy or puckered skin irregularities

Karlinksy B&A Male Both men and women enjoy the benefits of liposuction

THE FACT: Puckering is rare. The key is for the provider to not be overly aggressive and to remove all the fat in an area completely. This takes training, artistry, and experience. A skilled professional will leave the skin smooth and beautiful.

MYTH #7: Liposuction is dangerous

THE FACT: Of course, any surgical procedure carries certain risks but modern-day liposuction is extremely safe in the hands of a trained professional.

MYTH #8: Non-surgical fat reduction treatments are just as effective as liposuction

THE FACT: I have chosen liposuction as my body sculpting method of choice. While non-surgical fat reduction methods certainly have their pluses, they often require multiple treatments whereas liposuction only requires one treatment per area. Liposuction also has a more predictable outcome since it can more specifically target exactly what areas of fat will be removed.
