As the name suggests, liposuction is a surgical cosmetic treatment that works to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat and improving the contours and proportions of your body. Other names for the procedure are lipoplasty and body contouring. Contrary to popular belief, liposuction shouldn’t be seen as a means to an end to losing weight. Some of the most effective ways of losing and sustaining a healthy weight are consuming a healthy diet and exercising. Moreover, you can combine liposuction with gastric bypass surgery if you want to lose weight.
It may be performed as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck. Liposuction is commonly used to remove fat in the following areas:
Liposuction works by removing fat from your body using suction. Our plastic surgeon will make small incisions into your skin, and insert thin, blunt-tipped tubes. These tubes will target fat deposits and remove them from your body via suction.
There are several different methods of liposuction which may be used, ranging from traditional suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) to laser-assisted liposuction (LAL). When you visit our office, our plastic surgeon will discuss your goals and your body type with you to determine the best type of liposuction to help you achieve the look you desire. We will provide you with detailed post-op instructions for aftercare and recovery following your procedure.
Liposuction shouldn’t be considered as a way to get rid of your problems overnight. For example, you shouldn’t expect that it will get rid of cellulite immediately. As with other surgical procedures, it comes with its fair risks. As such, you should only consider having liposuction if you meet the following conditions:
Doctors don’t recommend the procedure to people with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
It would be best to consult with your doctor to understand what you should expect before and after the procedure. They’ll also run some tests to identify whether you’re a good candidate or not based on your overall health at the time. Additionally, you’ll learn how much it will cost and the associated health risks.
If you’re sure you want to proceed to the next steps, they’ll guide you on how to prepare for the surgery, including the diet you should stick to.
When done by a professionally trained medical professional, you should be able to make a full recovery. It’s, however, crucial to ensure that the place where you have it is accredited.
The time it takes to recover is dependent on, among other things, how invasive the procedure was and your general health. It’s not uncommon to experience bruising, swelling, and swelling, which can last for a few weeks. You can control the swelling by wearing a compression garment for a few months.
Additionally, antibiotics are common to prevent infections, which can increase the recovery process.
As with other invasive procedures, liposuction has some risks, and as such, it should only be done by a professionally trained and certified medical professional. Some of them include:
If you’ve been considering or your doctor has recommended liposuction, we’re happy to report that it’s a fairly safe procedure.
