What to Expect During Your Liposuction Procedure

At Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery in Bellevue, which also caters to the Seattle area, we adhere to the highest standards of pre-operative and post-operative care, ensuring our liposuction patients receive the best possible outcomes. All liposuction procedures are performed in a state-licensed, accredited surgery center, staffed with experienced anesthesiologists. We employ advanced techniques such as power-assisted liposuction and tumescence, involving a generous wetting solution, to achieve optimal results.


Upon arrival at our Bellevue plastic surgery center, you will be comfortably settled on a bed, and your anesthesiologist will typically administer general anesthesia, although liposuction can be performed under various levels of anesthesia, depending on your comfort. Dr. Day will commence the procedure with a small micro-incision, followed by the injection of liquids to facilitate fat removal. He then uses oscillating cannulas to break apart and remove excess fat deposits, carefully sculpting the area being treated. The duration of the procedure depends on the number and size of areas being addressed. While initial improvements in the treated area are often noticeable immediately, the final results will become fully apparent several weeks post-procedure, once swelling has completely subsided.
