Dr. Lee Colony In: Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Everyone wants to feel confident in their bodies and achieve their body goals! Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that makes this possible. If you’ve been on the fence about getting liposuction, these are five reasons why you should schedule a consultation.
Liposuction is the solution for a permanently slimmer physique. During your procedure, the unwanted fat cells are sucked out of the treatment area. Once those fat cells are gone, they cannot come back and new fat cells cannot grow to replace them. However, fat cells that were not removed in the surrounding area can continue to grow so it is important to maintain a proper diet and exercise after surgery.
Liposuction can be used almost anywhere on the body where you have stubborn pockets of fat. Common treatment areas for women include the thighs, buttocks, hips (love handles), bra fat, and abdomen. Men often focus on the lower abdomen and chest to achieve a sculpted, masculine physique. Liposuction can also be used on the neck to address a double chin and on the upper arms or calves.
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but it is an effective body contouring surgery. Patients are recommended to be within 25 pounds of their weight loss goal with localized pockets of fat. These stubborn pockets of fat are often resistant to diet and exercise, which makes liposuction an effective last step for patients’ weight loss and body contouring journey.
Although it will take several months for the swelling to completely go down and your body to recover, the results of liposuction surgery are almost immediate! Most patients can resume normal activities after two weeks and after this time, the majority of the swelling will have reduced.
