You are committed to taking care of yourself. You watch what you put in your body. You give your body the type of exercise it needs to be strong. You’re happy with your weight, but you have a problem. There are trouble spots where resistant fat won’t go away. It’s hanging on around your waistline. You’ve got a little extra in your thighs and your upper arms. You’ve exercised until you can’t exercise anymore. Those problem areas are still there. You think it’s time to get help from a plastic surgeon. You’re wondering if liposuction is the answer for you.
When to Consider Liposuction
Liposuction is not a weight loss fix. You should be at your ideal weight or within close range of the weight that you want to be. If you are in good health and you have targeted areas where you are dealing with deposits of fat, liposuction is a recommended alternative.
What Can You Expect When You Have Liposuction?
The first step before having liposuction is to identify what areas are going to be treated. Our surgeon will administer a local anesthetic before making a small incision. This will allow our surgeon to insert the cannula. The cannula is a surgical tube that is thin and hollow. It will loosen up the fat as it is inserted in your body before suctioning it out. Your incision will be closed and our surgeon will move on to the next area. Once all of your areas have been treated and you have been monitored carefully, you will be allowed to go home. Our surgeon will give you instructions to take care of the sites of your incisions. You will also be given recommendations about restricting your activity levels. Expect some discomfort in the beginning, including bruising and swelling. Over-the-counter pain relief medication should be enough to make you more comfortable. As your swelling goes down, you will be able to appreciate your new figure. Get ready to say goodbye to those bulges. You’ll have a trimmer, smoother physique.
