I want to reshape my body and feel prettier
Jasmine, 34, Lawyer, Dallas
I’ve put on weight during college mainly because of stress. I’ve tried exercising and diets, but my body can’t seem to slim down noticeably. I’ve always been chubby, but now I have troubles accepting my body. I hope liposuction can help me reshape it so I can feel confident and good about myself.
Liposuction removes fat deposits that persist despite regular exercise and diets. The procedure can treat different areas of the body : neck, saddle bags, hips, abdomen, thighs, and many others.
WHO IS IT FOR
Candidates for liposuction ideally have a stable and normal weight, but are troubled with displeasing fat deposits in specific areas. Sufficient skin elasticity is important for the skin to ‘bounce back’ once the fat has been removed. Liposuction is not a tool for weight loss.
The fat in the treatment area is liquefied by the injection of tumescent fluid. Short incisions are made to insert a thin hollow steel tube called cannula in the fat layer and suction the fat of the area out of the body. The scars resulting from these shorts incisions are almost invisible and the fat reduction is homogeneous.
Patients usually stay at the clinic under observation during at least 24 hours. Painkillers are prescribed to avoid discomfort and pain during the initial recovery.
Depending on the number and size of areas to be treated, liposuction can be carried out under general or local anesthesia with sedation. This will be discussed with your surgeon and anesthesiologist.
Immediately after the surgery and during 2 to 3 days, soreness of the treated areas is frequent, but fades quickly. Bruising is normal after the procedure and last 2 to 3 weeks whereas swelling can persist a little longer. Improved body contours begin to appear a week after surgery, but the final result can only be appreciated after 3 months. A compressive garment must be worn during 2 to 4 weeks. Regular exercise and healthy eating habits are the keys to maintaining liposuction results.
