What You Need to Know About the Liposuction Cosmetic Procedure

While liposuction procedures have greatly advanced over the years, there is still plenty to know before you undergo a liposuction cosmetic procedure. Liposuction is a great way to smooth out your physique when standard diet and exercise have been unsuccessful. Even in our prime, some of us cannot get rid of all the stubborn fat deposits that we wish to remove. Here is what you need to know when considering a liposuction treatment:

The Procedure

Our liposuction procedures utilize a tumescent solution to temporarily reducing the size of your veins and capillaries and reduce bleeding. This allows our technicians to only use local anesthesia and avoid any possible risks of general anesthesia. We then make tiny incisions on the area to be treated. Small cannulas are inserted into these incisions which safely suction away unwanted fat tissue. This procedure makes it easier on the body to recover while still delivering incredible results.

After the Procedure

We monitor our patients’ health after each and every liposuction treatment. Our patients are prescribed compression garments that are worn on your treated area. These compression garments help mold your body into your desired shape while reducing any swelling, promoting healthy blood flow, and preventing any blood clots from forming. Regular follow-ups will also be scheduled to make sure your body continues to heal properly during this short recovery period. Most individuals may experience discomfort for a few days but can resume normal activities within a day or two.

Liposuction Risks

Like most cosmetic procedures, there are always certain risks associated with liposuction if care is not taken. The biggest care to take is making sure excessive liposuction is not conducted. There is a limit to how much fat tissue can be safely removed in a single treatment. High-volume liposuction treatments are unsafe and place the patient at risk. This is why liposuction should be considered a sculpting tool, not a weight loss procedure.

Price of Your Liposuction Procedure

One important question we often get asked is how much the liposuction procedure costs. Procedure costs are determined by the amount of fat to be removed, the area from which it is being removed, and more. There are plenty of financing and payment options available for you through Laser Lipo and Veins to help you afford this procedure.
