A healthy diet and regular exercise are always the preferred methods for weight loss, but what about those stubborn deposits of fat that simply won’t budge? Many women have turned to liposuction for body sculpting. Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan might recommend liposuction for you if you wish to remove fat from specific areas of your body, she can also perform liposuction in conjunction with other surgeries, such as a tummy tuck.
Liposuction is ideal for those who are within 30% of their ideal body weight and who follow a healthy diet and exercise program. Plastic and cosmetic surgeons achieve best results with those who have good muscle tone and firm skin. Good candidates for liposuction should also be in good overall health, and they should not smoke, as smoking interferes with the healing process.
With liposuction, a plastic surgeon can target many different areas of the body that have not improved despite diet and exercise. Many women choose to have liposuction to sculpt their thighs, hips, abdomens, and upper arms. It’s important to discuss your goals for your appearance with a cosmetic surgeon, and to have reasonable expectations for the procedure. Liposuction should not be considered an alternative to weight loss, but rather a means to sculpt your body and improve trouble areas.
When you consult Dr. Geoghegan, discuss whether you have a tendency to gain or lose weight. If you gain weight after having liposuction, the fat distribution in your body can change. Maintaining your weight will ensure that the results of the liposuction procedure are permanent. You should also think about the recovery from the procedure when deciding if it’s right for you. You’ll need to take about a week off of work, and you should avoid rigorous activities for about two to three weeks.
Learn more about liposuction and whether it’s right for you by scheduling a consultation with Oasis Plastic Surgery. Dr. Geoghegan, is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and will work one-on-one with you to help you achieve your goals.

Although many women consult plastic surgeons because they are considering breast implants, others prefer breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, offers many benefits. A plastic surgeon can discuss the procedure with you and help you decide if it’s right for you.
Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan who is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery may recommend breast reduction surgery for women who suffer from self-esteem issues due to large or sagging breasts. This surgery can not only boost your self-confidence, but it will also eliminate pain of the back, neck, and shoulders due to the weight of the breasts. It’s also ideal for those who have poor posture and breathing problems, or chronic skin rashes and shoulder grooves from bra straps. After having this surgery, you will likely notice that you’re more able to engage in sports. Plastic surgeons also recommend this procedure for those who have one breast that is larger than the other.
To prepare for the surgery, tell Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan about any medical conditions you have or medications you take. You should also mention if you plan to breastfeed in the future, or if you expect to lose a lot of weight. Dr. Geoghegan will take measurements of your breasts to plan the surgery. She will advise you to quit smoking, if applicable, and stop taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medications for a period of time.
The Dr. Geoghegan will work closely with you to determine the right surgical technique to suit your needs. The incisions may be placed in different areas, depending on your preferences and the surgeon’s recommendations. Most often, they are placed along the breast fold, around the areola, and down from the areola to the crease.
Arrange to have someone drive you home after your surgery. The plastic surgeon will advise you to get plenty of rest for the first couple of weeks. After you return to normal activities, you should still avoid strenuous exercise for about two to three weeks.
