Sticking to a well-balanced diet and a regular exercise routine are essential in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. And while many people also find success in losing and maintaining their weight through healthy living, there are still many others who struggle with stubborn weight and fat pockets. If you are struggling to trim and tone your body, even with diet and exercise, you may wish to consider the benefits of liposuction.
Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that is extremely effective in removing excess fat and improving contours of the body. Through liposuction, targeted areas of the body can be reshaped for a slimmer and more proportioned look. It is a major surgical procedure that is most often performed under general anesthesia. Intravenous sedation is an option as well and is based on a patient’s personal preference. During the procedure, a hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through tiny incisions and excess fat is suctioned out and broken down. The target areas are reshaped and recontoured.
Downtime is required after liposuction surgery but most patients are cleared to return to work within a few days. It is, however, typically advised that strenuous activity is kept to a minimum for some time. Bruising and swelling is common but will eventually subside. As with any surgical procedure, it is important to follow all post-operative instructions carefully to help facilitate the healing process and avoid complications.
