Everything You Need To Know About Liposuction

Every year, millions of people in the United States get a liposuction procedure due to its effectiveness and consistency. Stubborn fat that just won’t go away, even with proper dieting and exercise, can be eliminated with liposuction. This procedure is safe and reliable and can help you get the results you desire. Here is everything you need to know about liposuction.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that helps shape and contour the body. This procedure is specifically designed to remove stubborn fat that is hard to remove from certain parts of the body. While liposuction is not considered a weight loss procedure or a solution to obesity, it can help you lose a few pounds and get your summer body ready.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is an individual looking to lose a few pounds of fat. Liposuction can remove up to 10 pounds of fat from the body in a single procedure. This procedure is great for those who are near their ideal body weight but are having a difficult time reaching it. Good candidates are also those who don’t smoke, have generally good health, and have good skin elasticity.

Benefits of Liposuction

Millions of people undergo liposuction procedures every year and for good reason. There are many benefits of getting this procedure done, and a few of these benefits are:

  • Improved confidence
  • Improved physical appearance
  • Improved health

This procedure is great for those who are ideal candidates. While fat cells can grow back, exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet can help maintain results and make them permanent.

Recovery Time

After the procedure, you’ll be given compression garments to wear, which will help control swelling and help maintain results. This will help your body adjust to your new contoured body shape as well. Depending on how much fat was removed and the body area that was operated on, you may need to stay in the facility overnight.

You’ll be able to resume work and other activities in just a few days. Any strenuous activities or exercise should not be returned for up to three weeks after the procedure.
