Liposuction surgery offers a safe and dependable method of removing unwanted fat and improving body contour.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction offers safe and effective removal and sculpting of excess fat to create a slimmer, shapelier figure. Liposuction surgery is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn’t respond to dieting and exercise. The best candidates for liposuction are of normal weight with localized areas of excess fat, for example, in the buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Liposuction surgery can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
What does liposuction treat?
Liposuction is an excellent way to achieve a better-proportioned body allowing clothing to fit properly as well as improving body shape and confidence. Common treatment areas include hips, abdomen, flanks, “double chin” and neck.
Our doctors will focus on delivering a noticeable natural-looking improvement in body shape within ten days. Final results usually appear within three to six months. It is important to remember that liposuction benefits are not exclusively aesthetic; liposuction can be the first step toward a healthier, more active lifestyle. Our goal is to help you achieve a body shape that is slimmer and more-shapely, resulting in increased confidence and self-esteem.
What to expect during the liposuction procedure
Your plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions near the area where the excess fat will be removed. Then, your surgeon will insert a thin vacuum tube through the incision, into the deep fat layer. The tube is moved back and forth breaking up the fat and suctioning it out of the body.
The procedure commonly takes only one to two hours to complete. However, the length of time required may vary depending on the target area and amount of excess fat being removed.
Recovery after liposuction
The recovery period varies depending on the details of your specific procedure and most patients experience manageable discomfort, bruising and swelling for several days. You will be able to return home the same day and should be able to return to light activities and work within a week.
Skin in the treated areas may also appear loose at first, as it takes time for the body to adjust to its new, slender shape. A compression garment is worn underneath regular clothing and strenuous exercise must be avoided for about three weeks in order to help your skin to conform to your new body contours.
