There’s a general misconception about liposuction: that it’s a procedure only to be used in cases of extreme obesity, or as a vanity project for people who want to suck away weight without putting in the effort themselves.
This is not exactly the case. Yes, lipo can be used in extreme cases to remove vast amounts of fat when the patient is in danger, but it actually is – and always has been – a procedure designed to improve body shape. The ideal candidate isn’t someone who is on the verge of the myriad conditions that morbid obesity brings on: it’s someone who is at or close to their ideal body weight, has maintained that weight for some time, but has some lumps and bumps in certain areas that they want rid of.
With Summer fast approaching, a liposuction procedure can really help in achieving the look you want – and now is the time to consider a procedure.
What happens during a liposuction procedure?
The procedure is simple enough: a small incision is made in the targeted area, and a cannula – a hollow metal tube, attached to a suction pump – is inserted. Then, the requisite amounts of fat cells are sucked out, in order to achieve a smoother and more even appearance. The incisions are then sutured.
What happens after your lipo procedure?
Post-procedure, you will be required to wear a tight compression garment for a few weeks, which will help with the swelling and bruising. Although there will be minor discomfort while you recover, this can be remedied with over-the-counter painkillers.
If you’re looking to achieve the shape you desire – or you just want to lose excess weight quickly and efficiently – a liposuction treatment can help. For more information, please consult our Liposuction page.Leave a reply
