Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and pulls fat away from the body. It is also known as “lipoplasty” or “liposculpture.” The abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, arms, back, and calves are among of the areas of the body where this type of surgery is commonly performed.
IS LIPOSUCTION AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE?
Yes, as long as you meet the surgery’s eligibility requirements. One of the most important characteristics is to be within 30% of your optimum weight, have elastic skin, and not smoke. Your surgeon will only be able to tell if you’re a candidate for the operation after a thorough evaluation.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET RID OF BELLY FAT WITH LIPOSUCTION?
We wouldn’t use the term “get rid” in this situation. Liposuction isn’t thought of as a weight-loss technique. Rather, fat cells are eliminated from cosmetically essential body parts in a targeted manner. Consider removing moderate amounts of fat from the most prominent locations.
IS IT TRUE THAT FAT RETURNS AFTER LIPOSUCTION?
Your body’s fat cells are permanently destroyed, and your new shape is permanent. Of course, your body can continue produce new fat cells after liposuction, which is why exercise and a healthy diet are so crucial.
DO LIPOSUCTION HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
Yes. However, liposuction should not be considered a “weight loss” operation. Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat cells from cosmetically relevant places in order to improve your appearance. Removing a large number of fat cells can be risky. It is reasonable to expect a 150-pound lady to lose 4 pounds of fat every surgery.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REGAIN WEIGHT AFTER LIPOSUCTION?
Yes. Because liposuction has no effect on your metabolism, you will acquire weight at a normal pace. That’s why it’s critical to combine liposuction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO GET MY BODY READY FOR LIPOSUCTION?
Stop smoking, make a training and diet plan, avoid aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicines, and get lab-tested, to name a few crucial things you can do.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REVERSE DIABETES WITH LIPOSUCTION?
No. Santa Monica Liposuction excess fat tissue, but treatment has no effect on your metabolism or diabetes. Liposuction has no effect on insulin resistance or other health issues in diabetics.
IS IT RISKY TO GET LIPOSUCTION TWICE?
You can have the operation done on the same place numerous times, but you must wait at least 6 months for your body to recuperate. With each surgery, the likelihood of irregular and inconsistent results grows. If you don’t get the desired result the first time, it’s improbable that you’ll get it the second time.
ARE BLOOD CLOTS CAUSED BY LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction might cause blood clots in the legs in rare circumstances. Swelling of the leg, discomfort, and fever are all signs of blood clot formation. Please call your surgeon right once if you experience any of these symptoms. If blood clots do form, they usually do so 2-10 days after surgery, but there is an increased risk for the next 3 months.
CAN LIPOSUCTION HELP ME GET A SMALLER DRESS SIZE?
Yes, but it is conditional. Liposuction is a procedure that removes a large amount of fat from a troublesome location. Rather than ‘draining’ the fat evenly across the body, you target a specific location (belly, thigh, chest, etc.) and remove fat from that precise area during the surgery. As a result, not everyone is a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction, for example, could yield considerable benefits if you have extremely broad hips and a tiny waist, and you could definitely wear a few sizes down. If your fat is uniformly distributed across your body, liposuction might not be the best solution for you.
