The Benefits of Liposuction

Fast Results 

During liposuction, Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne loosen and remove fat cells from your body. The results of liposuction are almost immediately noticeable. The leaner contours you achieve through liposuction by our surgeons can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle.

I had an amazing experience at Northshore Plastic Surgery! Everyone on staff is incredibly friendly and helpful; willing to answer any questions you may have. Dr. Claiborne is extremely patient and thorough, and talked me through every step of what I should expect from my breast reduction. And the results? I love them! They are everything I wanted and more, and my chronic back pain was immediately relieved. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Katie Huval is the friendliest, most professional, and knowledgeable staff member I’ve worked with at NSP. When considering my treatment, she patiently answered all my questions. She was able to provide pictures, credible resources and set realistic expectations. During my visits she has awesome bed side manner. I am always comfortable during procedures and even have a good laugh throughout. She is honest about what is going on and I never have any surprises. She is just all around pleasant, efficient and kind. I look forward to working with here again!

Am I a Liposuction Candidate?

In order to get the most out of liposuction at our Mandeville facility in greater New Orleans, candidates should meet the following criteria:

Good Health

When it comes to any type of plastic surgery, candidates should be in good overall health. Smoking and some medical conditions like heart disease increase the risk of complications. 

Ideal Weight

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss treatment. Candidates should be close to their ideal body weight and within a healthy BMI range before the procedure.

Realistic Goals

Liposuction gives you a slimmer figure by removing fat cells, but it is not a fix-all procedure. If you have excess skin and stretched muscles, consider combining liposuction with body contouring.

The Tumescent Liposuction Procedure

Day of Procedure

Preparation

Tumescent liposuction is a liposuction technique that only requires local anesthesia and a saline solution containing lidocaine, and epinephrine. The solution shrinks blood vessels and isolates fat cells, making fat tissue easy to remove. If you would like general anesthesia or IV sedation, they will be administered at this time.

Incisions

Once you are comfortable, our surgeons will make small incisions at the treatment area that allow the cannula (a small tube) to be inserted. 

Fat Removal 

Unwanted fat is broken up and suctioned out with the cannula. To ensure your safety, there is a limit on the amount of fat that is removed. 

Compression Garment

Once the fat has been removed, lost body fluids are replenished and the incisions are closed with sutures or dissolvable stitches. Sometimes, drainage tubes have to be placed to prevent infection. After a short recovery period in our office, a loved one can drive you home to continue your recovery.

Recovering From Your Liposuction Procedure 

During the first week of your recovery, you will experience some bruising and swelling around the treatment area. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may need as long as two weeks away from desk work, and possibly longer away from more strenuous work. Follow the instructions of any pain medication you are prescribed to manage any discomfort. You should also wear a compression to reduce swelling and bruising, and to prevent blood clots. 

Patients can usually engage in some light activity starting a few days after their procedure, and return to work in about a week. Swelling and bruising should diminish over the next few months. During this time, you will attend several follow-up appointments at our office serving Greater New Orleans so our plastic surgeons can monitor your healing. As you progress, our doctors will let you know when it's safe to resume strenuous exercise.

Compression garment

Payment 

The cost of your liposuction procedure at our Mandeville, LA, facility near New Orleans depends upon the size of the treatment area and the number of areas we treat. During your consultation, we can provide an estimated cost of treatment.

In addition to accepting cash and major credit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. This flexible option allows patients to pay for treatment in low-interest monthly installments. The team at Northshore Plastic Surgery can help you explore this payment option during your visit with us.

Where do I start? First, I’m from New Orleans not Mandeville, so I was already nervous about that. lol but once I got there, from my consultation, to booking my surgery, to Hurricane IDA hitting and postponing my surgery, to the surgery day, and follow ups. THE ENTIRE STAFF WAS AMAZING AND SO SWEET. Not to mention they are all beautiful ladies except the Drs. Lol I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area! Don’t waste your time and money going to Another state, because cheaper doesn’t always mean better. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Highly recommend Dr. Claiborne!! From the moment he walked into the room, he displayed kindness & compassion towards all of my concerns regarding my surgery. I never felt rushed when asking a long list of questions. His bedside manner is so respectful and his vast knowledge of plastic surgery just radiates from him!! I’ve struggled with body image issues since I was a teenager. I’ve also carried 3 beautiful babies, so my body certainly changed even more after that. I am only 1 week post opt and I’m already in LOVE with my results. He has given me the confidence I have searched for my entire life. I simply cannot thank him enough! Hands down, Dr. Claiborne is THE BEST!
