One thing that plays a huge role in how a person carries themselves is their appearance. We can spend hours at the gym despite how busy our schedules are to get the body they have always desired. However every so often, there can be some stubborn rolls of fat which just refuse to disappear.
Fortunately, cosmetic surgery has a solution to this dilemma, liposuction.
Liposuction is an invasive cosmetic surgery procedure in which fat is removed from certain areas of the body for example from the abdomen, thighs and upper arms to name a few areas.
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction often works best for people with good skin elasticity as results are often retained better. Individuals over the age of eighteen in good health and are not suffering from any life-threatening diseases are eligible to undergo liposuction.
How do I prepare myself for liposuction?
In order to prepare yourself for liposuction you will need to avoid smoking and/or taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs including ibuprofen and aspirin and these are blood thinners. These precautions are taken to avoid potential complications during the surgery.
Be sure to discuss your medical history, drug allergies and any prior surgeries with us prior to the procedure taking place.
What will recovery look like after the procedure?
After the procedure, patients are immediately observe some swelling around the surgical sites. This is a side effect of the surgery and will ease off within a few days. As the swelling goes down, the contours of the body will begin to appear better. Patients will be given post-operative care instructions on how to clean the surgical site, take medicines and so on. These instructions need to be followed carefully and medications are to be taken as and when prescribed by the doctor.
During the initial weeks of recovery, patients are advised to not carry out any physical activity.
Changes are permanent although weight gain can affect the results of the surgery. Patients are recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and an exercise route in order to maintain the results of the surgery.
