Body Sculpting

Liposuction is a procedure used in body sculpting that removes stubborn bumps caused by fatty tissue. During the procedure, the cosmetic surgeon makes tiny cuts in the area, inserts a cannula and sucks out the fatty tissue that has been destroyed or melted by forcing a special solution in through the cuts.  Here are some things to know about liposuction and tips to dealing with it.

  • This cosmetic surgery procedure is very safe.
  • Unlike some procedures the results are permanent, but that doesn’t mean you body won’t store fat in another place.
  • Compression garments are commonly worn for several weeks after having the procedure to ensure the best result.
  • The doctor and nurses show you how to care for the cuts and the site of the liposuction.
  • The final look of your sculpting will not be visible for some months. It takes this long for the swelling to subside and your body to return to normal.

  • You’ll be able to go back to work in a few days. But if you have a physically demanding job, it may take longer.
  • You’ll need to return to the clinic the day after the procedure so the doctor can examine the cuts and ensure everything is ok.
  • The cuts are not stitched. This allows waste fluids to escape and prevents infection. It also means you have to treat them carefully so they are kept clean and heal quickly.
  • There are several different types of liposuction treatment, but the most important thing is the expertise of the surgeon.
  • The cuts are so tiny they heal without leaving a visible scar.
  • Expect some pain and stiffness since quite a lot of fatty cells have been removed. Pain can be managed by pain killers.
  • There will usually be bruising at the site as well as swelling. Your body will deal with this in its own good time.
  • Everyone’s body is different so don’t expect the exact same experience as another person has.
  • A smaller area will heal more quickly with less pain; a larger one will take longer and give more pain and swelling.
  • There is also going to be inflammation due to the damage inside your body, just like a sprained ankle will become inflamed due to damage to tendons and muscles.
  • Liposuction will not make you healthier in itself since it only removes fat from under the skin, not from the arteries. However , some procedures such a liposuction for breast reduction can make it much easier to move around and go jogging, so you’ll get healthier if you do that regularly.
  • You also need to maintain a healthy diet so fat doesn’t pile on in another area.
