Frequently Asked Questions

Results from your Liposuction

Liposuction surgery will reduce those areas of fatty deposits that previously created unflattering bulges and perhaps made it difficult to feel comfortable in your clothing or caused self-consciousness. Factors such as fluid retention following surgery and prolonged swelling may delay the appearance of your new, slimmer contour. The healing process is gradual, so you should expect to wait a while before fully enjoying the results of your liposuction.

How long will your results last?

The results of liposuction will be permanent, as long as you maintain your postoperative weight. Even if you gain a few extra pounds, you may find that the weight is distributed more evenly instead of accumulating in the areas that were problematic for you in the past.

When can I resume my normal activities?

You may be able to return to work in just a few days. In many instances, you can resume most of your normal activities within one or two weeks and begin some form of exercise three to four weeks post surgery. The timing of your recovery depends largely on the extent of your surgery.

After Care

You will return to Nowak Aesthetics at prescribed intervals, for a follow up with the Nurse, at which time your progress will be evaluated.

Please remember that your relationship with Dr. Nowak and Nowak Aesthetics does not end when you leave the operating room. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery, you can reach Dr Nowak 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Who Is Getting ThermaLipo?

This leading-edge combination of laser liposuction and Thermage in San Diego is appropriate for men and women of any age with the full range of skin types and colors.

Now, anyone can lose unsightly fat deposits, improve their body shape, and smooth out their skin with ThermaLipo. This procedure is done with only local anesthesia and patients can return to work in a couple of days.

Liposuction is particularly well-suited for people who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is often the only way to eliminate them.

What to Expect

Thermage is a comfortable, non-invasive procedure that takes under an hour to perform. When Thermage is combined with Laser liposuction, the ThermaLipo procedure will probably take several hours, depending upon your anatomy and desired results; if the procedure is done on a Friday, patients can return to work on Monday and they normally start walking 2 miles the day after.
