Liposuction is one of the most widely known and sought after plastic surgery procedures for a reason: the results are undeniable. Liposuction can dramatically change your body’s contours and proportions. During this procedure, excess fat is removed and targeted areas are recontoured, creating a smoother, slimmer appearance. Liposuction can be used on just about any area of the body where excess fat is a problem. Though most commonly used on the lower body – particularly the thighs – liposuction can be performed on the stomach, buttocks, hips, calves, arms, ankles, neck, and back. When diet and exercise aren’t producing the results you desire, consider the many benefits of liposuction.
Due to the nature of the procedure, liposuction must be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The type of anesthesia used is generally based on patient preference. Once anesthesia is administered, small incisions are made over the areas to be targeted, and a small tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is used to suck out excess fat and help break down fatty tissues. The areas of concern can then be reshaped and sculpted for a more pleasing look. At the conclusion of the procedure, small temporary tubes may be inserted to help drain excess fluid, and compression bandages are placed to help facilitate the healing process. Downtime is required and pain and swelling at the surgical site is to be expected but can be managed through ice and pain killers.
