Liposuction is the treatment to consider if you’re near your healthy body weight but still have areas of fat that stick around in spite of diet and exercise. The team at Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, have extensive experience performing liposuction, giving women the slim body contour they desire. Contact the office to schedule an appointment and learn how a liposuction procedure can permanently remove fat from any part of the body.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that slims and reshapes the body by removing localized areas of fat. It’s commonly used to eliminate resistant fat from:
Many women achieve their desired results with just 1 liposuction treatment. If you’re considering other cosmetic procedures, liposuction can be performed at the same time as other surgeries such as a facelift, tummy tuck, or breast reduction or augmentation.
Most people who want to improve their body shape are good candidates for liposuction, but it’s important to have realistic expectations about what liposuction will accomplish. It’s very effective for eliminating fat, but it’s not a weight loss procedure — it’s a body contouring procedure. That means liposuction is best for patients who are within 30% of their ideal weight. Your overall health should also be considered, so the surgeons will review your medical history to be sure you don’t have any serious conditions that may interfere with the ability to heal after the procedure.
Liposuction is performed using several small incisions to accommodate the thin tube, called a cannula, that’s used to loosen and suction out fat cells. During your recovery, you may need to use a compression garment or elastic bandages over the treated areas. They’ll help keep swelling down and also compress skin to your new body shape.
The amount of healing time required is different for each person, so your doctor will talk with you about when you can return to normal activities. Many patients find they can return to work after a few days, depending on the extent of the procedure, but it could take time for the swelling to completely subside.
The results are immediate, but you won’t be able to see the full effect until all the swelling is gone. If you have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone, your skin will mold to the shape of your new contour. However, if your skin prior to liposuction was dehydrated, or aging made it less elastic, you may see areas of loose skin. Your doctor will talk about this possibility with you before liposuction and recommend how to improve your skin if its appearance is a concern after receiving liposuction.
