Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure which is designed to improve your appearance by removing excess fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. With the misconceptions and myths that surround this common medical weight loss procedure, it can be difficult to know which one is true. Your health is important, and you shouldn’t have misguided assumptions, especially before deciding on having a liposuction procedure.
With that in mind, if you are considering liposuction, here are a few things to expect:
By Itself, Liposuction Doesn’t Help You Lose Weight- after a successful liposuction procedure, you will only lose a little weight. The surgeon could remove only a limited amount of fat from your abdomen. The main goal of liposuction is for body contouring and to remove fat from unwanted areas. Using liposuction in combination with a healthy diet and exercise is important.
Liposuction Removes Superficial Fat- liposuction procedures remove only fat from under skin. You will look slimmer, but visceral fat and intra-abdominal fat are unreachable.
Follow-Up Cosmetic Surgeries Could Be Necessary- after a successful liposuction procedure and you have healed up completely, you may end up with loose skin. Due to removal of fat, your skin will no longer look as tight as before. For better results, you need cosmetic surgery to remove the excess skin.
Fat May Return- be aware that removed fat won’t stay off if you still have unhealthy choices in life. If you consume excess calories or do too little exercise, excess fat may return. Physical exercise matters and you need to do it regularly to maintain ideal body shape. If you are not careful, you may accumulate more fat than before the liposuction procedure. Use the liposuction procedure as a tool.
Results Are Not Immediate- many patients assume that the liposuction procedure will leave them with immediate results. However, after the surgery, you may not immediately get the desired results you want. The surgical removal of fatty tissue will cause internal trauma, resulting bruising and swelling the abdomen area. Depending on the amount of fat removed, swelling may last for a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Once the swelling is gone, you will see a new, slimmer you.
