You can follow a healthy lifestyle, eating nutrient-rich foods and getting regular exercise, and still be stuck with nagging areas of fat that just won’t go away. That’s when you need liposuction to permanently remove those pockets of fat. Dr. David Creech, combines his exceptional surgical skill with artistic talent, using liposuction to produce the body shape that meets your goals. To schedule a consultation, call the office today.
During your consultation, we have additional patient images available for view. Our patients' privacy is our highest priority, and we only publish images online with patient consent.
After surgery, you may experience some discomfort, pain, stiffness, burning or temporary numbness. Fluid drainage from the incisions, swelling, and bleeding is also common.
Dr. Creech will prescribe pain medication to help with any pain or discomfort that you feel, as well as antibiotics to prevent infection. Patients should start walking around as soon as possible, or as recommended, to help prevent blood clots in the legs.
A compression garment similar to a girdle is typically worn for several weeks to support the skin and control swelling. Most of the swelling and bruising subsides within three weeks, though some slight swelling can persist for more than six months. You will notice an immediate change in the shape of your body after surgery, though the final results will be apparent when all of the swelling has completely diminished.
The amount of time it takes to recover after liposuction will vary for each patient. Generally, most patients are able to return to work within a few days after surgery, though more strenuous activity will need to be postponed for eight weeks.
