Consider the struggle you are having getting rid of those several unwanted pockets of fat located in your tummy, thighs, and hips. Those pockets of fat are the only things standing in the way of your regaining the shapely body you had before you gained weight or had a baby. Consider that your efforts at dieting and exercise have gotten you so close, but now you have seemingly hit a wall. Consider all that, and then consider liposuction. This is a well-known procedure that has been in use for many years, and is a solution to the problem you are having getting rid of those last few pounds.
Liposuction isn’t a way to lose a lot of weight. If you are significantly overweight, you should use other means to reduce. An optimum candidate for liposuction is near their normal weight range. They also need to be in good general health, and have realistic expectations about what the surgery will do for them. Your surgeon can use liposuction to sculpt and contour your body into a shapely figure. This will make your other efforts to get in shape worth it. You will have your body back, and you will fit into clothes and swimwear better.
There are essentially two types of lipo procedures. Suction assisted liposuction, and ultrasonic assisted liposuction. Both require the use of a thin hollow metal straw called a cannula. It is used to suction fat cells from underneath the skin. Suction assisted is very effective, but sometimes the fat cells are compacted too tightly. In this case, your surgeon will use ultrasonic assisted liposuction. This makes use of and ultrasound generator. The ultrasound generator vibrates, thereby rupturing the compacted fat cells, making it easier for the surgeon to remove the fat with the cannula. Using this method produces less blunt trauma to surrounding tissue, so it is often the preferred procedure. It also produces smoother results in a lot of people. Local anesthetic or general anesthetic may be used for the procedure. It depends on the patient, and the extent of the procedure. It takes about 45 minutes per area to complete. Recovery time depends on how extensive the surgery and may last from a day to a couple of weeks. It is generally reported that there is very little discomfort after the surgery.
