Liposuction is a surgical procedure which allows a surgeon to go into your body to remove extra fat deposits and to shape or reshape your body. The excess fat is removed by going under the skin with an ultrasonic probe which will then emulsify the fat and it will be removed with the suction. Liposuction is not just for the stomach and abdominal area. You are able to get liposuction on many areas of your body including; your hips area, neck, butt, arms, calves, face, or back. You also have the option of getting liposuction done on more than one area at the same time. For example, you could get liposuction on your stomach, back, and arms in the same day.
More men have started to opt into getting liposuction done also. The most common area for men is the chest area to reduce breast size or to remove lipomas, or fat tumors. However, please note than liposuction is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise plan. Liposuction only helps to remove the areas of fat that have not responded to a traditional weight-loss method. Liposuction can be performed by plastic surgeons or by dermatologists, although any authorized physician can perform liposuction.
Most physicians’ professional associations highly recommend training for liposuction, even though no standardized training is mandatory. Always make sure to ask whether or not your doctor has had specialized training in liposuction and have had success with it in the past. However, there is always the chance of the liposuction procedure having complications. This surgery is a bigger risk for those who have medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease, poor blood circulation, diabetes or who have had surgery recently. Inform your doctor of any medical conditions you might have. Liposuction surgery has helped many people transition into a healthier lifestyle easier and has also helped to raise the self-esteem and well-being in those individuals also. Liposuction is the permanent removal of fat. This procedure is recommended only to those who are obese (excessively overweight), as this procedure removes large amounts of fat over several sessions of surgery. Anywhere from four to six liters of pure fat is able to be removed in each session. The most common areas for women to get liposuction are in the abdomen, chin, hips and thighs.
Men have also gone with liposuction to reduce the size of their stomachs. Liposuction is one of the safest forms of cosmetic surgery there is and is performed as day surgery and requires only the use of a local anesthetic. Liposuction can be performed on people of all ages, but older patients do not receive the same result, as their skin elasticity is less than a younger person who has tighter skin. Any procedure, including liposuction, involves many risks and complications. Before going through with the surgery, make sure that the surgeon you have chosen is recommended and has a reputation of being honest and safe.
