When you hear the word liposuction, what comes to mind? Most people have a distinct vision in their minds, and due to popular culture its not always realistic or positive. But we want to reframe the way you think about this common and safe procedure. Liposuction surgery can help transform the way that people feel about themselves and their bodies, increasing their self-esteem and their comfort in their skin.
When potential patients come into our office for the first time it is not uncommon for them to have one of the following questions.
Can Fat Return After My Surgery?
Yes, your surgery is only as good as your aftercare. No amount of plastic surgery can compensate for an unhealthy lifestyle, so if you love the results of your procedure and want to retain them you must prioritize a healthy diet and lifestyle to ensure that your unwanted fat doesn't rear its ugly head once more.
Where On My Body Can I Get It?
This surgery can be done virtually anywhere on your body from the pesky midsection trouble areas to your arms, legs, and even your neck. This surgery targets pockets of fat that are not treatable by diet and exercise alone and should be paired with a healthy lifestyle.
How Long Will Results Last?
Technically the fat tissue removed during liposuction is gone forever. So, if you maintain your weight and don't gain new fat, the results will be permanent. That said, it is possible, and not uncommon, for fat tissue to return. Bear in mind also that the final results of the procedure often take up to 6 months to appear.
How Long Is Recovery?
The recovery period for liposuction patients can vary depending upon the intensity of the surgery. Most patients can be up and back to their usual routine within two weeks. Though, your surgeon will require you to continue using compression garments for up to two months afterward.
Have you come to the end of your rope when it comes to working to transform your figure? For many people, no more fitness or dieting will ever get rid of the fatty tissue that bothers them the most. If you're a healthy person with a trouble spot you simply can't get past, you may be a perfect candidate for this procedure.
