“Magically remove unwanted patches of fat from various parts of your body.”
While this sentence may sound too good to be true, liposuction helps over 260,000 Americans lose up to ten pounds of stubborn fat every year.
Liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. after breast augmentation. When performed by an experienced, accredited plastic surgeon, liposuction is a safe, highly effective, and beneficial procedure.
The procedure itself uses vacuum technology to isolate particular pockets of fat and suck those fat cells out of the body. Once this fat has been removed, those fat cells are gone forever.
However, it is essential to note that your body will continue to operate the same as it did before liposuction. If you eat more calories than you burn, your body will convert those calories into fat cells and store them at the same locations.
For this reason, many people use liposuction as a springboard towards achieving the toned body they desire and then practice proper nutrition and exercise to maintain that physique.
Different people accumulate fat deposits in different areas.
For many women, trouble areas are around the thighs, buttocks, and hips, whereas men are primarily concerned with the lower abdomen and chest. Fat can also accrue around the upper arms, calves, and neck, and liposuction can treat all of these areas.
Ideally, patients considering liposuction need to be within twenty-five pounds of their ideal body weight. This is because liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure; it is a body sculpting process. Liposuction can not help obese patients lose weight, because losing substantial amounts of fat overnight is not healthy. The body needs time to adapt to such drastic changes.
In those patients close to their ideal body weight looking to trim off the excess, liposuction offers an incredible solution.
The results of liposuction appear almost immediately. It will take your body several days to fully recover and settle after the removal of fat tissue, but once the swelling subsides and you’re back to your routine (usually after fourteen days), you’ll notice stunning results.
Liposuction has been scrutinized and studied for decades. And now, thanks to constant adjustments and changes in technology and procedure, the operation is incredibly safe when performed by a trusted plastic surgeon.
