Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove fat from the body. It is an excellent way to reshape your body, reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve your overall appearance.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours. The surgeon uses either a tumescent or non-tumescent technique, depending on the amount of fat they wish to remove. Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a solution into the area that will be treated. This causes swelling in the area which helps to separate the fat cells from one another allowing them to be removed more easily.
After the surgery is complete, your surgeon will place drains in certain areas so that any additional fluid can drain out of your body. These drains are usually removed within 3-5 days after surgery. You should expect swelling for up to two weeks following the procedure but this typically resolves within 8 weeks of having liposuction done.
Benefits Of Liposuction
The benefits of liposuction include:
- Reduced waistline size
- Improved contour and definition in areas such as hips, thighs, buttocks, knees and calves
- Improved skin tone and texture in these areas as well as around knees
The beauty of liposuction is that it can be used to target specific areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, hips and waist. Liposuction is also an excellent method for removing stubborn fat pockets that do not respond well to diet and exercise.
Liposuction Results are Immediate
After one treatment, patients often lose inches right away. However, it may take several treatments to reach optimal results because each individual’s body heals differently. Patients who have had multiple sessions will experience a more gradual improvement in appearance over time as they continue losing fat cells at a regular rate over several months following their last treatment.
