Let’s make this the summer of love. We aren’t talking about first glances or passionate kisses but, rather, falling in love with your curves again. Liposuction can help you discover your best body. Here’s what you need to know to lipo love your body this summer.
What Is Liposuction?
Lipo is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that can remove unwanted fat pockets. It is often performed on patients who are close to their ideal weight, but still struggle with areas of fat concentration. Once removed, fat cells don’t regenerate. Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body safely, including:
- Upper Arms
During liposuction, small incisions are made in the treatment area through which a cannula is inserted. Local anesthetic is injected to expand and firm the fat for easier removal. Gentle suction removes the unwanted fat. The area is shaped and contoured to create smooth curves and even results.
Can Liposuction Complement My Other Cosmetic Treatments?
Liposuction can be performed on its own, but it also makes an excellent complement to other cosmetic procedures. It is often performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), fat grafting, post-bariatric surgery, and the mommy makeover.
What’s Recovery Like After Liposuction?
Liposuction is minimally invasive and, as such, many of our patients are back to their regular activities in just a few days. You can return to non-strenuous activities as soon as you’re comfortable. Avoid exercise and strenuous activities for about two weeks. It can take up to eight weeks for all post-operative bruising and swelling to resolve.
Love your body from head to toe with liposuction. Stunning curves await!
