Liposuction

Have you been spending a lot of time in the gym or focusing on a new diet plan to lose fat, but have not seen much in the form of results? Ingram Cosmetic Surgery understands how stressful it can be to commit to such a strict lifestyle for little in return. That’s why we proudly provide liposuction treatments to patients in Nashville, TN, who need a little extra surgical help achieving the body of their dreams.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that’s designed to help improve one’s bodily contours by removing unwanted fatty deposits from different areas of the body. The surgery can be customized to address a variety of areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, and arms. It’s important to note that liposuction is not considered a weight-loss treatment. While patients will experience some decrease in weight after the procedure, the primary goal of the surgery is to eliminate excess fat.

The Benefits of Liposuction

When performing liposuction, Dr. Ingram’s goal is to strategically remove stubborn deposits of excess fat that have proven to be difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. It is capable of addressing specific areas of the body, allowing individual patients to obtain a fully customized treatment that will address their specific concerns. The results of the procedure have helped many patients obtain a slimmer, more defined body they can carry with confidence.

Your Liposuction will be performed by Dr. Alton E. Ingram, M.D. in the Toyos Clinic's AAAASF-accredited surgery center located at Dr. Ingram's Green Hills office in Nashville, TN.

What to Expect During the Liposuction Procedure?

The liposuction surgery will take place in Dr. Ingram’s Nashville facility. Before it begins, he will mark the areas of your body that will be treated. Next, he will administer an anesthetic to help you feel comfortable throughout the process. He will make small incisions in the designated areas to gain access to the underlying fat. He’ll remove the fat with delicate instruments and work to recontour the remaining tissues to better fit the new contours of your body.

The procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you will go home the same day of the surgery.

Recovery After Liposuction

Since liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure, patients who have gone through it should take time off to rest and relax as they recover. During the recovery period, it is advised that you take time off work and avoid partaking in strenuous physical activities for about two weeks.

Candidates for Liposuction

The best candidates for liposuction are those who suffer from deposits of stubborn fat that have proven difficult to get rid of on their own. Dr. Ingram will perform an initial assessment of your body during your consultation and ask you about your medical history to determine if liposuction is a suitable option for you.
