"I had surgery this morning, (August 02) to remove some basal cell skin cancer with Dr. Lee of Lee Plastic Surgery & Laser Center. It was very easy with the whole procedure. Dr. Lee put me at ease and explained everything to alleviate any concerns I had. His staff and those at Blue Water Surgical Center were friendly and professional. I was referred to Dr. Lee by the Martin Memorial Wound Care Center and they were spot on, the very best. I've had negligible pain and have needed no pain reliever. I hardily recommend Dr. Lee and Blue Water without reservation."- M.B. / Facebook / Aug 02, 2018

Liposuction is a great procedure for both women and men who are at a healthy weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be lost with diet alone. Those considering liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose skin. It is also important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for losing weight. Women having liposuction should have childbearing behind them as this could compromise the outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss realistic expectations.
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed. The cannula is a tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being suctioned out. Once the fat deposits have been removed, Dr. Lee will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-operation nurse will help manage your pain and care for your incisions until your discharge.
What to Expect
You may be in recovery at home from liposuction for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of treatments performed and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you can have the sutures removed on day seven to day ten. What is most important after having liposuction is to allow your body time to heal and recover. Once you return to work after your procedure, you should do your best to take it easy. To build up your strength, stick to light workouts and go for walks as approved by Dr. Lee. Keep in mind you may see significant changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
