Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery. It is a well-known procedure but there are several myths and misconceptions about it. Here are some important things to consider before you schedule your liposuction surgery:
Liposuction is to sculpt the body
Liposuction is not the easy way out to lose weight, it is a technique to sculpt and contour body. In other words, liposuction helps to get rid of the stubborn fat deposits which is not responsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction is the technique to get the body one desires. Not that it is not performed for weight loss but the amount of fat required to achieve the same may exceed the safety limits and then one has to opt for a staged surgery, few parts at a time. If you are primarily looking for weight loss without having a diet and exercise routine then your Plastic Surgeon is very likely to turn you down and ask you to lose a few pounds before she/he decides to operate you.
Belly, thighs and more
The common parts of body where it is hard to lose fat are abdomen, thighs and upper arms. But liposuction can also be performed on the chin, neck, calves, back, or buttocks. Liposuction is for the patients who have struggled to lose those love handles or flabby arms, even after following strict diet and heavy exercises. Liposuction is a great procedure to put the motivation back in you to keep exercising. It gives you the result that you have actually been looking for.
Choosing the surgeon
It is very important to ensure that you are in good hands. Do your research, opt for a well trained and experienced Plastic and Cosmetic surgeon. Other surgeons although may be performing the surgery occasionally, it is a Plastic Surgeon that has the adequate training and specialization in this procedure. This reduces the risks associated with the surgery. A specialist in the field of liposuction will offer you the best outcome.
It is safe
Liposuction is a very safe procedure. After the surgery, there can be discomfort, swelling, bruising or mild pain. But you can resume all your daily activities within few days.
Magical pressure garment
After surgery expect to wear a compression garment. Such pressure garment helps with swelling and healing. Listen to your doctor. Depending on the scope of procedure, you may have to wear it for couple of weeks to months.
Healthy lifestyle is the key
To retain desired results after liposuction, it is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Exercising and good eating habits will help you maintain the results. Remember liposuction doesn’t prevent weight gain, to preserve the sculpted body stick to a healthy routine.
