You’ve heard the phrase “having curves in the right places,” a mantra of what it means to have the perfect silhouette. But then there’s the implication of having curves in the “wrong” places, when no matter how much you diet or how much you exercise, there’s just no getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. That’s why so many people turn to the body-sculpting powers of liposuction. Liposuction is one of the most popular and enduring plastic surgery procedures because it can permanently get rid of stubborn pockets of fat hiding your fit body. Are you ready to finally, at long last, achieve your dream body?
Think of liposuction like a hammer and chisel, sculpting away your body into the perfect form. The actual medical procedure of liposuction works by sucking away excess fat in your body to give you a more toned, contoured figure. Liposuction works by creating small incisions in whatever body part you want to sculpt—these incisions are incredibly small, and when they heal, they will be difficult to notice. Then, a solution will be piped into the target area to help prepare the fat, decrease blood loss, provide anesthesia, and reduce post-operative bruising. The excess fat is then ready to be sucked away by these small tubes called cannulas, and your incisions will be closed.
What Does Liposuction Work On?
What doesn’t liposuction work on? Liposuction can safely and efficiently sculpt such a wide variety of places on the body:
- Love handles
- Upper Arms
Who’s the Perfect Candidate for Lipo
The perfect candidate for lipo is someone who has great skin elasticity, and isn’t looking for a treatment for cellulite. Unfortunately, liposuction doesn’t really tighten skin.
Fix it with Fat
Want to kill two birds with one stone? The wonderful thing about liposuction is that it can give as much as it takes; in the same procedure, you can actually add volume to a body part of your choice in a process called fat grafting.
Your new, toned body should last for a long time. We should point out that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and should only be used for body contouring. With that in mind, it’s important for each patient to maintain their results by staying healthy and maintaining their weight.
