These consultations can be conducted virtually, so you’ll be safe and comfortable in the privacy of your own home. You can discuss both minimally-invasive and non-surgical options for body contouring.

Patients often want to know how long it will take to see liposuction results. The timeline varies depending on the treatment area and the liposuction method used. At the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our patients love the BodyTite liposuction procedure. BodyTite combines radiofrequency skin tightening with liposuction to maximize results. With this treatment, initial results can be seen at about 3-4 weeks, once swelling goes down. The best results take shape over the next 4-6 months.

What Can I Do to Maintain Great Results?

It is of course still possible to gain weight after liposuction. In order to maintain the results you’ve achieved, it is important to:

  • Follow all aftercare instructions related to rest, activity, hygiene and compression garments
  • Maintain a stable weight with a healthy lifestyle, including regular physical activity and healthy eating habits

Most people feel even more motivated to maintain a stable weight once they see their liposuction results.
