Your Complete Guide to Liposuction
Liposuction involves removing unwanted subcutaneous fat while simultaneously re-contouring to create a more aesthetically appealing body. While not a treatment for obesity, liposuction- liposculpture selectively removes persistent and unwanted subcutaneous fat.
Bothersome fatty deposits are found in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the face, neck, breast, abdomen, upper arm, hips, thighs, knees, and ankles. Liposuction-liposculpture can be performed on multiple areas at one time – your surgeon will follow accepted guidelines regarding safe volumes which may be removed in one session. While goals include size improvement, this procedure is not for weight loss. Final results may not be evident for 6 months following your procedure.
During this time your body balances fluids and the skin and remodels underlying tissues. Final results also depend on proper nutrition, exercise and decreasing your caloric intake.
