Q: AM I SUITABLE FOR LIPOSUCTION SURGERY?
When deciding to undergo surgery, there are a few things to consider. Having a stable weight and being physically fit is essential. If you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight, this might not be the right time to have a liposuction. It’s important to remember there are certain results that cannot be achieved through liposuction. The surgery do not remove cellulite and cannot tighten skin . Your surgeon will recommend other procedures to improve these conditions.
Q: CAN I CHANGE MY BODY SHAPE WITH LIPOSUCTION?
Yes, liposuction is a good technique for permanently removing fat from specific areas. This can result in better proportions for your body shape. Liposuction is an extremely versatile procedure that can be used on many different body areas, removing fat, and even inspire further lifestyle improvements.
Many people are trying to lose localised deposits of fat, such as in the abdomen, thighs, arms and neck, with exercise and diet, but without results. In many cases is might be genetic, and therefore only removable by surgery.
Q: IF I DO MANY SIT-UPS, CAN I REDUCE THE FAT ON MY ABDOMEN?
You cannot spot reduce areas of fat because its distribution is genetically determined. If you burn through enough calories (compared to your intake), you can reduce all of your fat cells in size. This will result in a thinner version of your existing shape. Prominent abdomens can be difficult to flatten if the fat is found inside the abdomen. This fat cannot be removed with liposuction. However, any fat found on top of the muscles can be reduced and the skin encouraged to contract into a better position on the abdominal wall.
Liposuction is a suitable cosmetic procedure to achieve outcomes for a range of ages and body shapes, depending on what result the patient wishes to achieve and individual health history.
Q: WILL I HAVE LOOSE SKIN AFTER LIPOSUCTION?
If too much fat is taken out there is a risk of loose skin, and your cosmetic surgeon will give you an idea of what you can realistically expect. However, with Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction, the skin is able to retract better than with standard Liposuction techniques.
Q: HOW BIG ARE THE INCISIONS, AND ARE THEY VISIBLE?
Incisions are located in discrete areas like natural creases or hollows that are hidden by shadows. They are about 3-4 mm long and heal almost invisibly in most people.
Q: IS LIPOSUCTION PAINFUL?
Today’s advanced technology has led to less pain and discomfort after having liposuction surgery. Still some discomfort is to be expected. The procedure itself is not painful because good anesthesia is used. However, during the recovery phase, you will feel sore, similar to bruising. Some patients describe the feeling as similar to a hard workout. When it comes to recovery time needed, this depends greatly on a number of factors. The number of areas treated, what type of anesthetic is required, and how active your work is likely to be, are all factors that will play a part in the recovery process.
