The answer to this most often asked question during a liposuction consultation is… Yes, absolutely! Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery process performed globally, and it is frequently ranked among the top three plastic surgery procedures, alongside breast augmentation and Botox injections. Liposuction is performed using a variety of methods, most of which functions by extracting fat from specific areas of the body, most commonly the belly, flanks, legs, sides, double chin, and bra roll.
The most crucial thing to understand regarding liposuction is that this is a body contouring technique, not a weight-loss treatment. Patients who have been at a healthy weight for 4-6 months prior to the procedure and maintain a daily diet and exercise regimen see the best outcomes.
Our bodies’ fat cells retain excess calories as energy in the form of fat. Both males and females have common fat distribution trends. Fat cells are relatively stable in number and essentially expand larger and smaller as fat is burned to provide nutrition to the body. When fat cells are replaced with liposuction, they are permanently removed from that particular affected region.
It is critical to understand that not all fat cells are eliminated from an area targeted with liposuction, and that the resulting cells will enlarge over time with increased caloric intake. If you continue to consume more calories than you consume, other parts of the body can store fat first. Until the other fat storage areas are saturated, the area handled with liposuction will be largely spared major changes in size and form. Since liposuction is a body contouring technique, it is important to monitor your diet and exercise patterns after liposuction in order to get the optimal and most long-lasting long-term results.
Surgery requires a substantial expenditure in time, effort, and resources in healing, so getting a solid diet and exercise plan in place right after the surgery is vital. Many people benefit from diets rich in protein and low in carbs, as well as reduce as much refined flour and sugar as possible.
When you come to Cosmetic Surgery Professionals for a liposuction appointment, they will go over your personal background, the effects you want from liposuction, and the new diet and workout patterns. They have an excellent Health and Wellness Program that can help you get on the right foot before your treatment.
Some people are already-fit and eat well, but they need some assistance getting out of problem spots that won’t disappear no matter how much they work out or track their calories. These patients usually have isolated persistent fat deposits in the lower belly, anterior and posterior thighs, and flanks (you know, muffin tops) and respond well to selective liposuction or non-surgical method, CoolSculpting.
Other patients may have a bit extra fluff and may need to shed a few pounds prior to liposuction in order to see the greatest long-term outcomes. When participating in the Fitness and Wellness Program with the intention of establishing a stable weight for 4-6 months prior to surgery, this group works very well. The programme provides dietary tips, nutritious recipes, and can even link you with fitness experts to help you get in shape so you can enjoy your new self.
after your liposuction treatment, You will have some inflammation, bruising, and soreness for about a week. Because bruising can take up to 2 weeks to completely resolve, it is critical to plan your rehabilitation to allow enough time for recovery. It is crucial to dress up your compression garment after liposuction in order to apply firm, even pressure to the treatment area. This reduces swelling and ensures that there are no irregular areas that could later turn up as small contour abnormalities.
If you are considering liposuction before a special event such as a wedding, class reunion, or vacation, you should schedule your procedure at least 3-4 months in advance to allow your body time to heal and the swelling to resolve completely.
