What is liposuction?
Weight loss does not equal fat loss. Fat cells are present in the body. They expand with weight gain and shrink with weight loss. The only way to eliminate and remove the cells is with a fat reduction or removal procedure.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that sculpts and contours the body. Fat deposits are successfully removed. Although liposuction is not a weight loss system for removing large amounts of fat, it is an effective way to remove smaller amounts of stubborn fat. Common treatment areas include:
- Sides or flanks
- Under the chin
Using tumescent liposuction
There are different forms of liposuction. Tumescent liposuction involves using local anesthetics to numb the area while making the fat cells swollen, firm, and easy to target. This makes the process comfortable for patients and the procedure itself is efficient. Small incisions are made, and a cannula or small tube is inserted to suction out fat cells.
What to expect
With any procedure, it is important to be honest with your physician and to have realistic expectations for the outcome. Every patient is different, healing times may vary. It is important to follow your doctor’s orders for optimal healing and results. With tumescent liposuction, there is typically less downtime than traditional liposuction. Since a smaller incision is used, the procedure is more precise, and scarring is minimal. Once the area heals, the results are permanent. Fat cells that have been removed from a treated site cannot regrow or reappear in that area. They are gone for good.
