    Liposuction

     

    Liposuction is one of the most recognized forms of plastic surgery around the world, and it’s wildly popular for a few good reasons. First of all, it’s a short, out patient procedure—and second of all, it can get rid of excess fat that’s difficult to get rid of without surgery. It doesn’t cost much, either, making it a great option for anyone looking to improve his or her image.

     

    Ideal candidates for Liposuction

     

    With that being said, almost anyone with a extra weight is a viable candidate for lipoplasty. Since it’s a non-invasive procedure, you don’t have to worry about scarring—which means you’ll be able to get rid of excess fat anywhere on your body. However, if you’re quite a bit overweight, surgery might not be an option, so it’s always a good idea to consult with your physician before making any solid plans.

     

    Possible risks and complications

     

    Even though there are some risks involved with liposuction, they’re not as big or scary as they used to be, and that’s because the techniques and technology behind the procedure have improved greatly over time. Scarring isn’t an issue, and the only other complications to consider would be those that go along with any regular surgery.

     

    The Procedure

     

    There are a variety of methods and techniques doctors use to remove excess fat all across the patient’s body, so it’s hard to sum up exactly what’s going to happen in any liposuction procedure. Depending on where the fat is removed, and how much is removed, the operation can be short and simple—or long and quite complicated. Either way, it consists of the doctor removing excess fat by suction—hence the name.

     

    The Recovery Process and Your New Look

     

    It won’t take any patient long to recover from a lipoplasty procedure, but it’s still important to take it easy during recovery time. Swelling and soreness should be present for a few days after surgery, and it can take up to a month before your body recovers. However, you should be able to see the main extent of the procedure immediately after surgery—and that can be a huge relief.
