Body fat loves to stubbornly stick around in the places where you want it the least. On your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms, just to name a few. Worse yet, this fat can’t be quickly eliminated just by eating well and exercising. Some fat doesn’t respond to healthy habits at all!
Here’s the good news: When regular fat reduction methods fail, you can turn to liposuction. This procedure sculpts your body by removing fat from your trouble spots. Here’s everything you need to know about liposuction so you can plan your treatment now and look your best by the time the holidays roll around.
What Is Liposuction? Will It Work For Me?
Liposuction can be completed in a few different ways. Be sure to speak with your plastic surgeon to determine which method best meets your needs.
Traditional liposuction has been used for decades. This procedure uses a cannula to break up your unwanted body fat and suction it out of the body. This is an effective treatment, but you also have the option of the newer and more innovative Ultrasonic or Tumescent liposuction treatments.
Ultrasonic liposuction emits ultrasonic energy to break up stores of fat instead. VASERlipo is a well known ultrasonic liposuction system that delivers reliable results. Tumescent liposuction, on the other hand, involves injecting a tumescent “wetting” solution into the treatment area to firm up fat and make it easier to suction out of the body.
You can opt for liposuction and expect great results if your skin still has enough elasticity to form to your slimmer figure.
Liposuction Recovery: Treatment Today, Picture Perfect By the Holidays
Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure, so you only need to plan about three to five days off work. Even after your downtime has passed, your results will continue to form. Your body shape and contour will improve for the next six months.
This means you can plan your liposuction surgery now and know that your body will look its best by the holiday season. You’ll be able to pose for pictures and attend every work-related celebration looking and feeling your best!
