Start 2017 Feeling Great: Your Guide to Liposuction

Is stubborn fat keeping you from achieving a svelte figure for 2017? Don’t worry because no stubborn fat is safe from liposuction. As you already know, liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. That’s because it’s effective at removing a large accumulation of fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Adding to its appeal is the permanent result it offers -- as long as the patient maintains a healthy weight. If you are feeling exhausted with the efforts you’re putting in your diet and exercise regime just to lose the extra inches on your arms or the bulge in your belly without success, then consider a liposuction. Here’s a simple guide to help you gain more knowledge about this procedure, and why it remains to be one of the most frequently requested surgical procedures at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center.

  • It can treat multiple areas in the body.

Although the abdomen, hips and buttocks are areas that get the most attention, other areas of the body can certainly benefit from liposuction. For instance, liposuction can remove the infamous love handles on your torso and the double chin in the neck. Liposuction can also reduce breast volume, particularly in men who have gynecomastia. A consultation with Dr. Munasifi will help determine if a certain area in your body can benefit from a liposuction.

  • It can work with other procedures.

Patients who wish to improve their figure further can combine liposuction with other plastic surgery procedures. These can include a tummy tuck, thigh lift, or body lift. Therefore, you might want to consider adding other procedures to your liposuction if you want to achieve a slimmer figure for 2017.

  • It takes days before you can see changes.

Before and after photos of patients prove that this procedure is effective at eliminating unwanted fat. However, the results are not instant. It may take days before you can see changes in your body, but you can feel rest assured that the treatment works. As long as you follow your doctor’s recovery instructions and maintain a healthy weight, your new svelte body will reveal itself slowly.

  • It’s not a solution to obesity.

Although liposuction can help contour your body, it’s not a weight loss tool. The best candidates for this procedure are those who have reached at least close to their ideal weight. Overweight patients are often not suitable for this procedure because of the associated risks. Excess skin and fatty tissues may also pose a problem. With the New Year just around the corner, liposuction may just be the right solution to helping you achieve a slimmer, sexier body in time for beach season.

If you want to use liposuction for your body makeover goals, schedule a consultation with Dr. Munasifi at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center.
