Dr. Vogel Answers Frequently Asked Questions Part 2

In the previous installment of our video blog series, Dr. James Vogel answered some common questions about breast augmentation surgery. In part two, he answers questions about body contouring procedures.

Body contouring procedures can be extremely beneficial for achieving a slimmer silhouette. During consultations, when patients ask about liposuction or tummy tuck surgery, they usually want to know which procedure is best for achieving the look they desire. Although the answer is different for each patient, I wanted to create a video to answer some of the most common questions regarding these procedures. I hope my answers to the following questions will help you to gain a better understanding of these procedures, as well as what you can expect:

  • How do I know if I’m a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

  • How do I know if I’m a good candidate for liposuction?

  • After the surgery, when can I resume normal activity?

  • What type of surgical garment should be worn after surgery?

  • What happens if I gain weight after the procedure?

  • What type of incision is used for liposuction?

  • What type of incision is used for abdominoplasty?

In your consultation, I can help you better determine if these procedures are right for you.
