Despite how many crunches or squats we do, we have areas of our body that we are unable to get rid of. Liposuction is a great choice for men and women who already live a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise, but are not able to do away with their problem areas.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from parts of your body, that includes your chest, thighs, belly, abdomen, and buttocks. It helps in body contouring and is a great choice for individuals with stubborn fat in certain areas of their body. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. If you’re looking to lose weight, diet and exercise would be the best way of doing it. After you reach your goal weight, liposuction could help give your body a sleek appearance.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is a great option for both, men and women who live a healthy style of living. Once the fat is removed the skin shrinks down due to its elasticity. Liposuction is not recommended for people with restricted blood flow, diabetes, or a poor immune system.
What should I expect?
You should expect a smoother, better-contoured appearance from liposuction, with little scarring. Your contouring should last for a long time as long as your weight remains stable.
What are the post operative instructions I need to follow?
Depending on the area being liposuctioned, an overnight stay might be required. As the surgery is done through small nicks in the skin which will camouflage over a period of time, care will have to be taken. a pressure garment will have to be worn for a period of one month. heavy activity such as working out will have to be avoided for a month.
