Milwaukee Liposuction Specialist – Dr. Loewenstein
The Wisconsin Region's Preference for Liposuction
Liposuction, performed in our Milwaukee office, is a safe, effective procedure designed to rid the body of fat that is resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Liposuction is particularly in demand for those Milwaukee patients who are physically fit — meaning those patients who are active and who eat well — but who can't seem to obtain the flat abdomen, sculpted arms or thighs, or svelte figure they desire.
Are You a Good Liposuction Candidate?
Dr. Loewenstein evaluates all candidates on an individual basis, noting qualities like the elasticity of the skin and the amount of excess fat to be removed, before he determines whether liposuction is a suitable treatment option. Generally, suitable candidates for liposuction are individuals who:
- Are physically and psychologically healthy
- Are within 25 pounds of their target weight
- Have tried to eliminate excess fat through diet and exercise, to no avail
- Do not smoke
- Do not have chronic, uncontrolled medical issues
- Understand the benefits and risks of surgery
- Accept the chance of possible complications
- Agree to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions from Dr. Loewenstein
What Can You Expect During a Liposuction Procedure?
During liposuction, Dr. Loewenstein, regarded as a top liposuction Milwaukee specialist for his ability to achieve outstanding results, will make a small incision in the treatment area. Next, he will insert a narrow, hollow tube — called a cannula — into the incision and vacuum out excess fat cells. Liposuction is performed under anesthesia and typically lasts two to four hours. Dr. Loewenstein specializes in a number of liposuction techniques including traditional liposuction (as described above), tumescent liposuction (in which a fluid is injected into the treatment area to minimize bleeding and post-operative bruising), and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (in which a special cannula is inserted to liquefy the fat for easy removal).
Recovering from Liposuction
After liposuction, the treated area is temporarily swollen, bruised, sore or numb for a few weeks. Wearing a compression garment around the treated area minimizes swelling and helps to support the healing tissues. Pain medication can be taken to alleviate any discomfort. Patients should rest as much as possible and avoid any strenuous activity as the body heals.Dr. Loewenstein sees all liposuction patients several times during recovery to monitor their healing progress, answer questions and remove non-absorbable sutures. He advises each patient when it is safe to return to work, socializing, exercise and other normal activities.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Liposuction can treat excess fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, back, neck and chin.
Can liposuction improve the appearance of cellulite?
Liposuction will not reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, it makes the treated area of the body look more toned and sculpted.
Is liposuction painful?
Liposuction is not painful. Anesthesia is used for complete patient comfort. Oral medication can be taken for post-operative pain or discomfort, if needed.
Will liposuction leave a scar?
Liposuction does not typically leave a scar because the incisions are very small.
How much does liposuction cost?
The cost of liposuction varies according to the specific type of liposuction procedure and technology used, as well as other factors. To receive a personalized pricing quote, schedule an informational consultation with Dr. Loewenstein to discuss your needs and goals.
