What is Liposuction?

No matter how much you diet and exercise, you might still be bothered by stubborn pockets of fat keeping you from feeling confident in your appearance.

Liposuction surgery is a body contouring treatment that reduces pockets of fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to create a more defined appearance. This cosmetic procedure at Stalder Plastic Surgery can be combined to treat multiple body parts. During your initial visit, New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder will assess areas of concern so you can reach your cosmetic surgery goals. We want you to feel and look your absolute best.

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.

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
