Dr. McCall is amazing! She did a fantastic job on my bilateral reduction. I am so pleased with the results. Her nurse, Kristen, is also fantastic. I can't say enough good things! My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon in this area.

Dr. McCall is the best and only plastic surgeon I will ever go to. She has done many HS surgeries on me and has always been so kind even with insurance changes. I would give her 10 stars if possible. Thank you so much for all you do!

Dr. McCall reshaped my ear lobes, and did a fantastic job. I wish I would have done this procedure years ago. The procedure was painless, and the healing time easy. I went to work the next day. My ears are beautiful. Extremely happy.

Preparing for Your Tumescent Liposuction Procedure

During your initial consultation at our office serving the greater Milwaukee, WI, area, our plastic surgeon will discuss your goals and medical history. Dr. McCall will give you instructions to prepare for your procedure. These instructions may include:

  • Stop taking nutritional or herbal supplements
  • Do not shave or remove hair near the treatment site
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery
  • Stop smoking
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your appointment
Doctor and patient

How Does Liposuction Work?

When patients from greater Milwaukee come to our Waukesha, WI, practice for treatment, they can expect the following:

Anesthesia

Dr. McCall places her patients under general anesthesia for most plastic surgery procedures, including liposuction.

Incisions

The fat removal process is performed using extremely small incisions in order to minimize scarring.

Tumescent Injections

The targeted area is first injected with a solution that causes the fat to swell for greater control during removal. It also reduces pain and bleeding.

Fat Removal

A tube, or cannula, is a special device that is inserted through the incisions to gently and safely suction fat cells from your body. The appropriate amount of fat is suctioned out of the body, resulting in improved contours.

Recovery

After treatment, patients can expect side effects such as discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These are significantly improved by two weeks after surgery, but complete recovery can take several weeks.

Aftercare

In the days following your liposuction procedure, you may experience some side effects such as:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

You can manage pain and discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication. A compression garment can be worn to help the skin heal and contract.

Tumescent liposuction is easier on the body than other forms of liposuction, but you will still have to rest for two to five days until you can resume your normal activities. You may even be able to return to desk work after a few days. You can resume an exercise routine in about one to two weeks, after you've given your body some time to heal.

It may take a few months to see the final results of your liposuction procedure as swelling subsides.

Other Benefits of Liposuction

Motivation to Maintain Your Figure

When dieting and exercise aren't enough to lose those last few pockets of fat, you may lose the motivation to eat a healthy diet and exercise. Removing those stubborn fat cells with liposuction may give you the motivation you need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to keep your beautiful results.

More Clothing Options

Areas of unwanted fat can make you feel self-conscious about your body, causing you to hide these areas with certain types of clothing. You may even avoid favorite articles of clothing altogether because they just don't look right on your body. Body contouring can help you achieve a slimmer figure and improve your confidence significantly.

Making the Most of Your Liposuction Procedure

Our tumescent liposuction procedure will gently suction away fat cells with a cannula, resulting in a slimmer figure, but if you can't maintain a healthy diet and exercise, you may develop those stubborn pockets of fat again. Before undergoing the liposuction procedure, we recommend committing to a healthy lifestyle to lower the chances of regaining the weight.

Why We Perform Tumescent Liposuction 

Our plastic surgeon at Lake Country Plastic & Hand Surgery in Waukesha, WI, offers tumescent liposuction, which is more effective, less painful, safer, and requires less downtime than traditional liposuction.

With tumescent liposuction, a solution containing an anesthetic and epinephrine is injected into the fatty deposits you want to remove. This solution causes the fat to swell and become firmer, so your plastic surgeon has better control over the area as they contour your figure. This solution also causes your blood vessels to shrink, reducing blood loss, pain, and swelling.

Combining Liposuction 
With Other Plastic Surgery Procedures

Lake Country Plastic & Hand Surgery serving Milwaukee and the surrounding areas can combine liposuction with other body contouring procedures to achieve precisely the results you want:

Tummy Tuck

If you're considering a tummy tuck following a pregnancy or weight loss, combining a tummy tuck with liposuction can eliminate excess fat, repair muscle tissue, and tighten loose skin in a single procedure. This method is efficient because it can save you time and allow you to have just one recovery period.

Facelift

A facelift repositions or removes skin, fat, or muscle to result in a younger facial appearance. Liposuction is commonly used during facelift procedures to sculpt the neck and jowl region and remove unwanted fatty tissue under the chin.

Explore Facelift Surgery

Breast Reduction

Liposuction combined with breast reduction surgery can be used to reduce the size and smooth the contour of the breasts. This can alleviate neck, back, and shoulder pain that your breast size may be causing, and improve your body proportions. In men, a breast reduction with liposuction can result in a more masculine physique, alleviating social discomfort.
