Are you struggling with stubborn fat pockets in any part of your body? Such a struggle can be nerve-wracking, to say the least–especially if you have tried exercising, eating well, or similar lifestyle adjustments without getting any positive results. Fortunately, procedures such as liposuction in Southampton can help you get rid of excess body fat and reclaim your original great looks. But what exactly does this particular cosmetic procedure entail?
Liposuction Removes Fat from Different Body Parts
It is possible for a single procedure to get rid of all excess body fat and reshape all affected areas. It all depends on the circumstances of the patient. The therapy can target various problem areas including the thighs, upper arms, back, hips and buttocks. The chest region, cheeks, chin and inner knee can also benefit from the surgical removal of fatty tissue. In addition, a patient who requires breast reduction may be a candidate for liposuction.
How Long Do Results Last?
Liposuction removes fat cells permanently from the targeted body area. Patients tend to maintain the longest-lasting results when they maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. Should a patient gain weight in the future, however, new fat cells typically only form in untreated areas. This means that you can usually retain your newly acquired body shape after surgery by exercising regularly and adopting a diet that includes a lot of fruits, greens, lean meat, proteins and whole grains.
How Long Does the Procedure Last?
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that typically takes no longer than three hours to complete. As the procedure has quickly advanced to become more efficient and less invasive, the patient can go home the same day. It may help for the surgery candidate to have someone by their side who can drive them back after the procedure is finished.
What Should I Do to Prepare?
During your consultation, we will walk you through any special steps you may need to take to prepare for the procedure. With that said, you should let our plastic surgeon know about any medication you may be using such as blood thinners. This will help us create the best treatment plan for your needs.
