Liposuction is an amazing way to get rid of fat that has not responded satisfactorily to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Often called lipo, it is particularly effective for returning your body to its normal shapely contours and for restoring good proportions to your hips and abdomen. In fact, liposuction can be used in a variety of places. Sometimes, it is done in conjunction with other surgeries or treatments to help you achieve the body of your dreams.
Of course, lipo is not a replacement for a good diet or exercise program. In fact, those who are obese should not use liposuction to meet their weight loss goals. However, once you have lost all of the weight that you can on your own, lipo can finish the expert shaping of your body by permanently removing some of your fat cells. Individuals should be at or close to their ideal weight.
Liposuction is performed with anesthesia. Depending on the situation, the areas to be treated and your own needs, local or general anesthesia may be used. During the actual procedure, the fat is removed through specialized processes.
Keep in mind that it will take multiple weeks for you to be able to see the full results of a liposuction procedure. This is because the treated areas will initially be swollen. As the days progress, the swelling will continue to go down and your body will begin to look slimmer and trimmer.
Liposuction is usually a same-day procedure, meaning you will return to your own home that day to recover. You will most likely have dressings covering your treatment area, and you may also be given compression garments. You will be given instructions as to how to care for yourself during your recovery. It is important to follow these instructions.
Liposuction is designed to be a permanent procedure because when fat cells are removed from your body, they can never regenerate. However, if you do not follow a healthy diet or exercise program, the fat cells that you have remaining can become larger. Additionally, lipo does not stop the aging process. Therefore, your skin will continue to lose its elasticity and age as normal.
