Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure in which fat deposits are removed from the patient’s body. This procedure involves the use of a small, thin tube called a cannula to break up the adipose tissue so it can be removed more easily. Liposuction can be used on its own or in conjunction with another procedure, depending on the situation. It can be performed on most parts of the body.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is customized for the individual. It involves the use of some type of anesthesia in order to make the client feel comfortable during the procedure. During the actual procedure, the excess fat is skillfully removed from the preselected area(s). The procedure involves a recovery, and it is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing during this time. It is also crucial to take it as easy as possible. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy your new and improved figure for years to come, so long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
A good candidate will be someone with overall good health and a realistic understanding of what the procedure can accomplish, as well as what to expect during the recovery. They need to be more or less at a healthy weight, for this is not intended to be a weight loss procedure. It is a form of body contouring and is, therefore, used to provide the patient with a more sculpted appearance.
Most of the various types of liposuction only remove fat deposits. Patients who have inelastic and loose skin should consider laser liposuction via SmartLipo™, for this type also stimulates collagen production and can, therefore, tighten the skin.
