Liposuction is a very effective way plastic surgeons can remove localized pockets of fat. The most common areas that can be altered include the neck, arms, stomach, “love handles”, buttocks and thighs. It is a great way to regain a smooth, youthful profile.
Liposuction can be performed in the office operating room. The patient is marked pre-operatively to indicate the areas of that must be removed. Under anesthesia, fluid, mixed with drugs to reduce bleeding, is injected into the fat. This is the “Tumescent Liposuction” method. It is a safer way to perform Liposuction because it lessens the fluid loss from your body. Small incisions, one inch or less are made in body creases (in order to hide them) and then a tube is inserted to remove the fat. Liposuction can be performed on several different regions of the body during the same procedure. At the conclusion of the operation, absorbable sutures are placed in the wounds and a compression garment is applied. A slimmer more beautiful physique is now yours!
The compression garment is worn for several weeks. Most people can return to work and regular activity in a few days. However, the level of activity is dependent on the amount of fat removed and the number of areas affected.
Liposuction can remove localized pockets of fat. There is a limit to the amount of fat that can be removed during one operation. Therefore liposuction is not a diet substitute. It is simply intended to eliminate unsightly fat deposits in unwanted areas.
A fat stomach after childbirth is usually due to the stretching of the abdominal skin and muscles. Liposuction may not be effective treatment for this problem. A tummy tuck, which would eliminate excess skin and tighten the stomach wall, would be a better treatment choice. Find out more about Tummy Tuck.
