You may have worked hard to achieve the body you want, including losing weight, exercising and even lifting weights. So it can be extremely frustrating to still have pockets of fat that don’t seem to care how hard you’ve tried to get rid of them. And if you haven’t started looking for information on liposuction, a cosmetic surgical procedure that can permanently remove areas of unwanted fat, it’s definitely time that you did.
Liposuction isn’t a cure for obesity; it’s a procedure designed for people like you. It can remove stubborn areas of fat and recontour your shape just about anywhere on your body, with the goal of improving your appearance.
The procedure can selectively remove persistent fat, often found in areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise, such as:
- Face and neck
- Hips and buttocks
- Upper arms
- Thighs, knees and ankles
In fact, the liposuction-liposculpture procedure can be performed on several problem areas at the same time, based on volume guidelines for safe removal of fat during a single surgery.
Improving those areas that seem resistant to everything else
Liposuction can remove fatty deposits from problems areas, but it can’t be used for patients who are looking for a weight-loss method. Some of our patients are at their ideal weight but are still struggling with stubborn fat on the stomach, around the hips or under the chin.
Achieving an optimum outcome
Some results can be noticed immediately after the surgery, but it can take up to six months of healing to experience the final results of your liposuction procedure. During this time swelling will go down, bruising will fade, any excess fluids will be eliminated and the skin and underlying tissue will remodel. Exercise and a nutritious diet, including reducing calories, can also improve your outcome.
The liposuction procedure is better and easier than ever
Liposuction-liposculpture is typically an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Incisions will be small and should heal with minimal scaring. To find out more about the procedure, call for a consultation appointment today: (760) 240-2444.
