Candidates for Liposuction
You’re a good candidate for Liposuction if you have stubborn body fat that won’t respond to your healthy lifestyle. All candidates should be healthy nonsmokers with realistic expectations for their procedure.
How Does It Work?
Dr. Bull uses a technique that has gained wide acceptance in recent years called SAFELipo. This stands for separation, aspiration, fat equalization. This technique uses a small cannula with a larger tip to separate the fat, then a smaller cannula is inserted under the skin to suction the separated fat. Once all the unwanted fat is removed, then another cannula is used to smooth out the remaining tissue to give a smooth, more even result. This technique allows a more even “shrinking” of the skin than the technique used years ago. SAFELipo has been used around the world in recent years.
Once the fat has been removed and the area equalized by smoothing out the tissue, dressings are placed over the incisions, a foam pad applied to the treatment area and a compression garment that will help decrease swelling and help the skin shrink down to the newly improved contour.
What Results Will I See?*
The final result will take 6 months to allow for the skin to retract completely, but most patients see improvement in their bodies in 1 week. The swelling will take several weeks to completely resolve and if you have any bruising it will improve greatly over the first week and usually has resolved completely by 2 weeks. The tiny incisions where the cannulas are inserted heal well and fade over time.
“Excellent experience every time! Everyone is always so friendly and very knowledgeable! Dr. Bull is awesome and I’m very pleased with my results.”*

What is the Recovery Process Like?*
Liposuction has minimal discomfort and a short recovery time. The suctioned areas may be swollen and bruised, and you may feel a burning sensation that will resolve quickly. The discomfort will be controlled with oral medications prescribed by Dr. Bull, but you may still feel stiff and sore for a few days. Most patients can return to work in 1 to 5 days depending on the extent of the procedure and the type of work you do. After the procedure, you should start walking around the same day, but more strenuous activity should be avoided for one to two weeks.
