What is Liposuction?
Liposuction (lipo) is a surgical procedure that specifically targets and removes fat deposits and reshapes, sculpts and firms the targeted areas.
Although no surgical procedure should be considered a substitute for proper diet and exercise, liposuction often helps in reaching your ultimate fitness and physique goals. Simply stated, lipo can be beneficial in eliminating problem areas that do not respond to conventional weight loss methods.
How is Liposuction Performed?
A small incision is made in the area where the fat cells will be removed. A solution, consisting of epinephrine and a local anesthetic, is injected which controls pain and minimizes blood loss during the procedure. A thin, hollow tube-like instrument called a cannula is then inserted and gently moved around to break up and vacuum out the fat cells. The area is then carefully recontoured, leaving just a minute layer of fat to avoid the appearance of any rippling of the skin.
Recovery from Liposuction
After liposuction (lipo) surgery, you should typically be able to resume light activities in a day or so, and return to work within a week. You should refrain from strenuous exercise for one to two weeks.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
The ideal candidate for liposuction is at a relatively normal stable weight, has good skin tone and ideally no more than 15 pounds of fat to lose. Those who follow a healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and regular exercise typically have better and longer lasting results. It is vitally important to remember that liposuction is not recommended as a technique for weight loss – rather it is intended to shape, flatten and firm difficult areas of the body.
