Eliminate Stubborn Problem Zones through the Power of Liposuction
Our bodies change over time and factors such as hormonal changes, weight gain or loss and pregnancy can cause certain regions of the body to “hoard” excess fatty tissue. These areas are often exceedingly difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Despite the recent advent of alternative, non-surgical technologies which promise reduction of love handles and other unwanted fatty deposits, liposuction remains the most powerful, most effective and most predictable way to permanently eliminate unwanted fatty deposits and create a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing shape.
The concept of liposuction is quite simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that allows us to target, disrupt, and eliminate stubborn and unwanted fatty tissue in order to produce a slimmer, smoother, more toned and balanced physique.
Dr. Stephen M. Becker, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon located in the Alcoa, Tennessee area, offers liposuction as a highly effective method of eliminating excess fat that has been resistant to other fat-reduction techniques. Liposuction surgery can reveal a whole new you by safely and permanently removing fat cells from your “problem zones”. While liposuction is not intended for weight loss, and should only be performed on individuals who are at or near their ideal weight, it can offer a way to balance your body’s proportions and lose inches to give your body the sleek form you have worked so hard to achieve.
Benefits of Surgical Liposuction
Each individual person struggles with different “problem zones” where excess fatty tissue is particularly persistent despite your best efforts to eliminate it through diet and exercise. Many of these areas can be treated with a liposuction procedure that permanently disrupts and removes the unwanted fat in order to create a slimmer, more contoured physique. The areas most commonly treated with liposuction include:
- Breast or bra fat
The most important factor to consider in the success of a liposuction procedure is the quality of the skin tone in the area being treated. If the skin is taut and firm, a liposuction procedure is an ideal option to getting a lean and sexy figure; if the skin is stretched and lax, an additional procedure to tighten and firm the skin may be required to achieve optimal results.
What does liposuction involve?
Liposuction surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. A typical procedure can take between 1-4 hours depending on the amount of excess fat you want to remove. During the procedure, a cannula (or thin, hollow tube) is inserted into the fat through a series of very small, inconspicuous incisions; the cannula dislodges the fat cells, which are then gently suctioned out of the body. After your procedure, you will be asked to wear a compression garment to decrease post-operative swelling and bruising. You should be able to return to work and most regular activities within three or four days after your procedure, or when it becomes comfortable to do so.
Liposuction permanently removes some fatty tissues; however, weight gain is still possible so it is critical to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to ensure that you maintain the amazing results of your liposuction procedure.
