How to Ensure Satisfying Liposuction Results
Liposuction is an effective way to remove those pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. With very tiny incisions, patients can expect a fairly short recovery period with no scarring, and results that are long-lasting. There are plenty of benefits to the procedure, but there are some things you can do to ensure you get the most out of it.
Maintain your weight
Before you consider liposuction, it’s important to remember that this is not an alternative to weight loss. To ensure the most satisfying results from your procedure, you should first be within your ideal weight range. This doesn’t necessarily mean you should try to lose weight before liposuction unless you are committed to keeping it off! Although liposuction can permanently remove your fat cells, you can still gain weight in untreated areas. Weight gain in other areas could affect your contour after liposuction. Eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise is a great way to maintain your weight before and after liposuction.
Consider combining another procedure
Liposuction is often performed alone to treat areas such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, bra area, upper arms, and neck area. However, if you suffer from lax skin and hanging tissue in these areas, you might consider adding another procedure for optimal results! Having liposuction when you have poor skin elasticity could result in more sagging. So, if this is also your concern, you might talk with your surgeon about adding a tummy tuck or body lift procedure.
Choose the right plastic surgeon
The most important decision you will make is choosing the right surgeon for your procedure. You will want to ensure that they have the education and certification required and have extensive experience in liposuction techniques. A skilled surgeon will not only remove stubborn fat cells, but precisely sculpt your figure for the shape you desire!
