How Can Liposuction Benefit You?

By in Mommy Makeover, Plastic Surgery  » 

When it comes to stubborn fat, diet and exercise aren’t always enough. While liposuction shouldn’t be considered a weight loss procedure, it can help you find relief from pockets of fat that refuse to budge! If you have good skin elasticity, are in good health, and want to sculpt your figure, you could benefit from liposuction.

Why do you need liposuction?

Stubborn fat can be present on virtually any part of the body including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and upper arms. It can be especially frustrating and difficult to remove from smaller areas like under the chin, above the knee, and in the bra area. Liposuction can be used in all of these areas to provide precise sculpting.

Liposuction is a medical technique that can gently break up and suction out the fat cells. When performed alone, the procedure can provide a more toned figure, defining the muscles. When combined with another contouring procedure like the tummy tuck, optimal recontouring can be achieved.

What can I expect after surgery?

Many patients choose liposuction to achieve significant results with minimal downtime! The technique involves only tiny incisions, so you can expect little to no scarring after the procedure. You will be instructed to rest after surgery, but many patients feel well enough to return to work after just a few days.

How long will your results last?

One major benefit of liposuction is that results can be experienced soon after the healing process. Once fat cells are removed they can never come back, leaving you with long-lasting improvements to your contour. However, you can still gain weight in untreated areas, which could affect your liposuction results. The best way to ensure long-lasting results is to maintain a healthy weight after treatment by establishing a healthy diet and exercise routine.
