Once you have decided that liposuction is the right choice for you, you can work with Bruno | Brown’s Board Certified Plastic surgeons to determine which technique better fits your needs through a more in-depth consultation.

What is a Liposuction Consultation Like?

During your consultation with Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, you will discuss your desired plastic surgery outcomes to help determine which technique is right for you.

The first technique is traditional tumescent liposuction. This uses a thin, hollow tube to loosen excess fat by a back-and-forth movement, which is then taken out from the body. The second technique is power-assisted liposuction. This incorporates a device that produces rapid, small vibrations to break up the fat before it can ultimately be removed.

Additionally, we will discuss the average recovery and procedure times for Liposuction. While the time can vary based on a patient’s individual care, a liposuction surgery typically lasts about 1 to 4 hours and recovery is about 3 to 5 days.

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen and Liposuction

For those that follow Chrissy Teigen, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that she’s open about her past plastic surgery procedures. According to Harper’s Bazaar, in May of 2017 she told Refinery29:

“I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so. And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again. It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses, I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”
