How You’ll Benefit

What are the benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction can help you remove stubborn rolls and bulges for an improved body shape. You’ll enjoy a slimmer physique with sleeker, more toned-looking body contours. Common treatment areas include:

  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Inner thighs or outer thighs (saddlebags)
  • Bra-line or back fat
  • Double chin
  • Abdomen or waist (spare tire, muffin top)

When used for facial rejuvenation, liposuction can reduce signs of aging by removing pockets of fat in the neck or under the chin. Dr. Augenstein can also transfer fat to areas of the body that have lost volume, such as the cheeks. The result is a refreshed, younger-looking you.

Eliminate Unwanted Fat

Your Liposuction Consultation

A Personalized Experience

Your Liposuction Procedure

Dr. Augenstein uses a combination of techniques to ensure that your procedure is safe and effective. Depending on your needs, he may recommend one or more of the following:

  • Tumescent liposuction: This is considered the “gold standard” of liposuction techniques. Tumescent liposuction is a tried-and-true method of fat removal that uses an anesthetic solution to reduce bruising and bleeding and improve the effectiveness of the liposuction procedure.
  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL): Dr. Augenstein almost always uses the PAL approach as part of his liposuction surgery. The technique uses a vibrating handpiece to loosen fat cells and reduce the amount of manual force needed to break up unwanted fat. This means you experience less bruising, swelling, and discomfort after surgery.
  • Fat grafting: Dr. Augenstein can transfer unwanted fat from an undesirable location to a more aesthetically beneficial area. He uses fat transfer often during facial rejuvenation.

Liposuction Results

In just six weeks, you'll start experiencing amazing benefits, and in about six months, you'll achieve your ultimate results. Liposuction is a permanent solution that can help sculpt your body and enhance your overall look. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise, is crucial to ensure long-lasting results. While liposuction removes fat cells from targeted areas, weight gain in other parts of your body may compromise your newly achieved body shape.

Liposuction Recovery and Aftercare

In most cases, you will return home on the day of your procedure in the care of a friend or loved one. Most people recover from liposuction quickly with relatively little discomfort. You will have swelling, bruising, and soreness, which some people compare to the muscle aches you feel after a hard workout. You will wear a compression garment over the treatment area to help with swelling and improve healing. Dr. Augenstein will provide detailed post-op instructions, which will cover this and all of your other aftercare questions. Most people take two to four days away from work and two to four weeks off from vigorous exercise. Light walking is encouraged starting the day of surgery.

Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Augenstein has used SmartLipo and is experienced in performing this technique; however, he has found that combining tumescent and power-assisted liposuction provides a safer procedure and better results. Dr. Augenstein uses a rapid vibration cannula to treat the area and remove as much fat as possible without heating it, preventing any possible distortion to the treatment area.

SAFELipo is a 3-step approach that enables Dr. Augenstein to remove large volumes of fat without compromising safety or creating contour irregularities. Dr. Augenstein uses this technique when performing liposuction on every patient.

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and won’t prevent you from gaining weight. Although liposuction removes fat cells permanently, the remaining fat cells can expand if you consume more calories than you burn. Eating right and exercising regularly can help you maintain your results.

Dr. Augenstein’s refined surgical techniques have earned him an outstanding reputation as one of the best liposuction surgeons in Charlotte, NC.
