Despite good health cióndition and a reasonable level of fitness, some patients still have a body with disproportionate contours due to specifically localized fat deposits. The reason in those cases are rather genetically related, than a lack of weight control or fitness.
Liposuction surgery can be recommended to treat stubborn fat pockets in the following areas:
It should be emphasized that liposuction is not a treatment against obesity and is in no way a substitute for regular exercise and a balanced diet. It's also not an effective treatment for cellulite, the pimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are people with stubborn fat deposits that cannot be reduced despite regular exercise and a balanced diet.
What is the procedure of liposuction surgery?
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedures. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 – The incision
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.
Firstly, a sterile liquid solution is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Afterwards, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion.
The dislodged fat will be suctioned out of the body, using surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
Step 3 - The post-operative treatment
Once the surgery is completed, a compression garment or elastic bandages will cover the treated areas. These tools will help to control swelling after your liposuction and compress the skin to your new body contours.
Additionally, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid.
Your improved body contour will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.
To maintain your hard eared results, it is required to hold onto a balanced and healthy diet and daily movement. Otherwise previous fatty tissue build-up again and will exessively harm our results.
Step 4 - The recovery
Your improved body contours will be apparent after the swelling and fluid retention subsides.
To maintain your hard earned results and prevent excess fatty tissue, continous movement and a healthy and balanced diet ist mandatory. However, a substantial weight gain will cause the destruction of the possible and permanent result.
It can take several months for the swelling to completely resolve after liposuction. You should get used to your new body shape and enjoy an improved body feeling.
Through the surgery you will have a solid ground to build up a new lifestyle and relationship to your body and self-image. You can improve these result through continous self-care, daily movement and a healthy and balanced diet.
A significant gain in weight may detroy your hardly achieved goals. After your liposuction surgery, your leaner and more proportioned body should reflect your healthy and active lifestyle you are holding onto.
