What should you know before going for liposuction?
Not everyone who feels like going for lipoplasty is a good candidate. Your plastic surgeon will not recommend the procedure if you have heart disease or have blood flow issues. Therefore, for you to go for the procedure, you have to have a strong immune system and have firm elastic skin.
Therefore, it is recommended you discuss your aesthetic goals with your doctor, your possible options, and the risks or benefits associated with the procedure. Once your surgeon has evaluated your case and determined the best approach to relieve you of excess fat, he will instruct you on how to prepare for the surgery. The instructions could be dietary or avoiding some medications like blood thinners several weeks before your appointed date.
What happens during the surgical procedure?
Liposuction begins with a tiny incision near your treatment area to enable a cannula to be inserted. Some special fluid is then injected into the area to make fat removal easier once the fat is broken up. The inserted cannula is then moved in various directions to speed up the fat breaking process and make it easy for the dissolved fats to be suctioned. When the treatment is over, the incision is then stitched, and a compression bandage is used on the closed incision to speed up the healing process.
What areas does liposuction cover?
Liposuction could be most convenient after a massive weight loss to help you rid yourself of fat pockets and cellulite. The after results will make your weight loss look sleek, with exposed underlying muscles. Lipoplasty is also a good option when you want to remove fat deposits around your buttocks and belly. You could also have the surgical procedure eliminate submental fat that makes you have a double chin and remove excess fat on your neck, jowls, and cheeks. Other than your belly and chin, your surgeon will recommend the fat removal surgical procedure on your other parts including:
- Upper arms
- Inner knees
What is liposuction’s recovery process like?
Bruising and swelling are common after liposuction. Your surgeon will recommend compression bandages or garments in your early recovery stages to minimize swelling and enhance healing. He will also prescribe over the counter medications to help relieve you from pain. You will start seeing your results when swelling resolves. The results will be more apparent in the consecutive healing weeks.
Liposuction is not a weight reduction option. It should be an alternative when diet and lifestyle changes have not yielded fruits. Do not struggle with fat deposits when you can have them suctioned out for a perfect body contour. Request an appointment today to talk about the available treatment options.
