Have you been spending countless hours in the gym or practically starving yourself to lose those last few inches of stubborn fat? While it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, doing this won’t always get you the results you want. Sometimes a little extra help is needed in the form of liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that sculpts the body through the removal of unwanted fat deposits from specific areas (abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, double chin). There are several types of anesthesia that can be used to perform liposuction, yet the most common practice is to use local anesthesia and a sedative only.
The length of the procedure varies from patient to patient and is dependent on the areas to be treated and the quantity of fat to be removed. There are times when the same body fat is used to fill other areas of the body, such as the buttocks.
The Benefits of Liposuction
When performing liposuction, our primary goal is to remove the stubborn deposits of fat that have proven to be difficult to remove by other means. The results produced by the surgery has helped patients achieve a slimmer, more defined bodily profile. The aesthetic improvement has helped patients experience increased self-confidence and improved motivation to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
Recovering From Liposuction
Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure so patients are expected to take some time off for rest and recovery. During the recovery period, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and relax as much as possible as the body heals. After about one to two weeks, patients can begin to perform their normal daily activities gradually.
Good Candidates for Liposuction
The ideal candidates for liposuction are those within their ideal weight range but have layers of stubborn fat that are hard to budge. Patients should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. We’ll assess your body and discuss your medical history during a consultation to determine if you’d make a good candidate for the procedure.
