Am I A Good Candidate for Liposuction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is a person who is at or near a healthy weight but struggles with pockets of stubborn fat that just won't respond to diet or exercise. Individuals interested in liposuction should have good skin laxity, as liposuction does not address loose skin. It is also important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again, as this may compromise the lasting outcome. During your consultation at our New Orleans, LA office, Dr. Stalder will help you determine if liposuction is the right treatment for you.

What Happens During Liposuction?

Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made through the skin so a cannula will be placed. A cannula is a tool that makes it easier to loosen the fat that is being vacuumed out. After the fat deposits have been suctioned out, Dr. Mark W. Stalder will seal the incision. Your procedure could take several hours based on the number of areas being treated. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-operation nurse will assist you with managing your pain and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.

You may need to recover at home from liposuction surgery for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the amount of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you should have the stitches removed within 7 – 10 days. What is most important after having liposuction is to allow your body time to heal and recover. When you are ready to return to work after your procedure, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To build up your strength and stamina, try light workouts and go for walks as recommended by Dr. Stalder. Keep in mind, you may see some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body contour and shape is complete.

About Us
How much does liposuction cost?

Your cost for liposuction varies based on the technique selected and how many areas are being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Stalder will develop your unique treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. Once your plan is ready, estimated costs can be discussed. Stalder Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods to make your cosmetic surgery affordable, and we will help you find low-interest medical financing.

Will I have scars?

Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, incisions will be made and sutured. This will cause scars, but Dr. Stalder does his best to minimize their appearance. This includes making small, thin incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Stalder or a team member will teach you how to care for your stitches, so they heal properly and fade.

Will my results last?

Before liposuction surgery, you must be committed to maintaining your results. While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Stalder recommends that you be at or close to a healthy weight before having liposuction surgery. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also alter your results; however, a second surgery or mommy makeover may be performed to refresh your appearance.

I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
