"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019

Liposuction is a great procedure for patients who are at a healthy weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be lost with diet alone. Patients 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 the initial consultation, we will discuss realistic expectations.
What to expect
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 in the incision. The cannula is a tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being suctioned out. Once the desired amount of fat deposits have been removed, Dr. Albright 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 incision site until your discharge.
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 7 to day 10. What is most important after having liposuction is to allow your body time to rest and heal. 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. Albright. Keep in mind you may see some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
