Liposuction is one of the most popular solutions for fat reduction in the world. Performed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, liposuction is more of a cosmetic procedure. Utilized to shave off pesky fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, liposuction works great for those who are slightly overweight.

What You Need to Know About Liposuction
Liposuction is a fairly common procedure with over 400,000 liposuction procedures are performed in the U.S. each year. This is not a weight loss operation and is not a solution for obesity. Liposuction works best for removing smaller amounts of stubborn fat that does not react to proper diet and exercise.
We recommended that patients be within 30% of their ideal body weight to receive liposuction.
The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is a safe procedure, that rarely results in negative effects for patients.
Liposuction starts with application of a numbing agent as well as a medication to help limit swelling and bruising. The doctor will then insert a thin cannula, into the treatment area. The liposuction procedure takes place through it. The doctors work to break up the fat cells with the cannula, through ultrasound or with lasers that work to liquify the fat cells. Once the cells have been broken up, a vacuum will suck the fat from the body through the cannula.
While liposuction is no miracle cure, it is a formattable option for those looking to eliminate fat that has not responded to proper diet and exercise. This fat can be removed through the liposuction procedure.
After fat been pulled from the body in the way that is done through liposuction, the body needs to adjust to its new form. Wraps and compression clothing will be advised to assist in the tightening of the skin to the body to avoid loose skin.

If you have undergone a liposuction procedure, then you have likely experienced sagging skin post procedure that is a result of stretched skin from excess fat. Most of the time a tummy tuck is prescribed to tighten the skin by surgically removing a portion of it, leaving an unsightly scar behind.
Tummy tuck procedures can be invasive and stressful, as it is a very involved surgery that requires the physical removal of large portions of the skin. Rather than deal with another surgery after you have already undergone liposuction, you can now opt for a much safer and comfortable treatment option.
