Liposuction: Sculpting Your Ideal Silhouette with Precision

Due to the constant innovation of technology, there are a number of new techniques, leading to better results and a quicker recovery. The procedure is not meant for weight reduction, it is meant to target specific areas that have shown resistance to natural weight loss methods. The ideal candidates for liposuction are not significantly overweight because the technique is not meant for weight reduction. If you have firm, elastic skin and areas of excess fat you may be an excellent candidate.

More About Liposuction

Liposuction is an outpatient basis procedure and may be performed under local, regional, or general anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will work closely with an anesthesiologist to determine which will be optimal given your situation. During the procedure, small incisions will be made, which will be infused with saline solution.

Next, a narrow tube will be inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer of cells that lie beneath the skin. You should expend some excess fluid drainage from the incisions following your surgery. Swelling and bruising are highly likely and may take up to three weeks to disappear.

Medical compression garments and surgery supplements are provided to help with post-surgery swelling. The healing process following liposuction is gradual, and you will be encouraged to walk, which helps achieve a number of objectives, mainly reducing swelling and preventing blood clots.

Healing following the surgery can take a few days to a week, and you should wait a month before returning to highly physical activities. As with all surgery, there is a slight, small risk of infection, poor healing scars, prolonged bruising, and swelling.
