Are you tired of doing everything in your power to slim down the contours of your body, but have seen nothing in the form of results? Diet and exercise are excellent for our general state of health but committing to these practices alone doesn’t always provide the aesthetic benefits we desire. Stubborn fat will sometimes need an extra push to get out of your body. Dr. Joseph Banis Plastic Surgery can provide the push you need to achieve the body of your dreams with liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. This surgery is designed to remove stubborn fatty deposits that reside in the most difficult areas of the body. Liposuction can address stubborn fat that’s stored in common areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, and arms.
Due to the fat-removing power of liposuction, it is often confused as a procedure designed to help you lose weight. It’s important to remember that liposuction is not considered a weight-loss treatment. It’s purely designed for fat removal purposes. While patients will experience some reduction in weight after the treatment, that’s caused simply by the removal of fat and won’t provide a dramatic difference in what you’ll see on the scale.
What to Expect During the Liposuction Procedure?
Before the liposuction surgery begins, one of our skilled plastic surgeons will mark the areas of your body that will be treated. To begin the surgical process, he will administer an anesthetic with the purpose of helping you feel comfortable throughout the surgical process. He will then proceed with making incisions in the designated areas to gain access to the underlying fat. He will use a cannula to remove the excess fat and recontour the tissues in the area.
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning patients can return home the same day of the surgery. You should have someone available to take you home after the procedure and to help you around the house as you heal.
Recovery After Liposuction
Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that will result in some swelling and bruising. We will provide medication to help you feel comfortable during the recovery process. During the recovery period, it is advised that you take time off work and avoid strenuous physical activities for about two weeks. Resting is essential to ensure a speedy recovery.
The Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction is an excellent treatment for removing stubborn deposits of excess fat that have proven to be difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. The surgery can be fully customized to address specific areas of the body with excellent accuracy.
Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are those who are within their ideal weight range but have had difficulties getting rid of stubborn deposits of fat in specific areas of the body. A member of our skilled team will perform an initial assessment of your body during your consultation and ask you about your medical history to determine if liposuction is a good option for you.
