As you age or go through changes in life such as the birth of a baby, it can be hard to get back a slim, youthful figure. Even with a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine, you still have areas of stubborn fat that won’t go away.
Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic technique used to minimize fatty deposits. It is a procedure that has helped thousands of men and women restore a firm and toned body contour. If you are looking to remove fatty deposits from smaller areas that haven’t responded well to diet and exercise, then liposuction might be the perfect answer for you.
Body Sculpting with Lipo
The most commonly addressed areas of the body include the abdomen, flanks, chin or neck, back, arms, thighs, and legs. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss technique. The ideal patient for liposuction is someone who is at, or close to his or her ideal body weight, usually within 20 pounds.
The best candidates for liposuction are healthy and active, with localized zones of unwanted fat. To realize your desired results with liposuction, the integrity of your underlying musculature must be in good health, and you should have good skin elasticity.
There are several different ways to perform the liposuction procedure at our clinic in Salt Lake City. Traditional liposuction involves inserting a cannula, or a thin, hollow instrument, through small incisions in the treatment area to break up and extract unwanted fat. Dr. Kevin Rose will remove fat from the targeted areas to reshape and improve your figure.
Is Liposuction Painful?
Liposuction is typically performed under anesthesia for patient comfort, and you can be back in the comfort of your own home the same day. You may experience some discomfort after your treatment, but it is easily managed with pain medication in the early stages of healing. The length of time you will need to spend in our office depends on the number of areas being treated. A typical procedure will require two to four hours. It is essential that you have adequate rest to recover, but you can expect to be able to return to work or normal activities in three to five days and back to your exercise program in approximately two weeks.
The success of the procedure can largely depend on the experience of the surgeon.
