When it comes to excess fat removal, liposuction is one of the most popular procedures we have to offer. It’s great for sculpting your body and destroying unwanted fat deposits. Most people have at least a few pockets of fat that are resistant to dieting and exercise.
Some people have these fat deposits on their neck, arms and back, and others have them on their breasts, ankles, calves, thighs, hips or buttocks.
If you have localized areas of stubborn fat or want more definition, you should consider liposuction. You should also consider the procedure if you have great skin elasticity and want a sleeker contour.
The Benefits of Liposuction for Excess Fat
Liposuction is a procedure that can make your clothes fit better. It can also make your body appear to be slimmer. The procedure is beneficial because it involves small incisions, which creates barely noticeable scars. When compared with open body contouring techniques, liposuction produces significantly less scarring.
The procedure can be performed under sedation, and when compared with similar procedures, there are fewer risks.
Are You a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Some individuals cannot get rid of stubborn fat deposits with diet and exercise. If you have good skin elasticity and minimal excess skin, you’re a candidate.
If you have localized deposits of fat on your neck, thighs, arms or other common areas, then you’re a candidate. However, an ideal candidate will have a stable weight.
It’s not a great procedure for anyone who is about to lose a large amount of weight, and you should also avoid the procedure if you’re planning to get pregnant soon. Liposuction is not capable of removing cellulite, and it does not have the power to tighten loose skin. Doctor Chernoff has also used liposuction for transgender patients during their transition process.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results that you get from this procedure have the potential to be permanent. Liposuction removes fat cells from the body. However, there is the possibility that the results will be affected by lifestyle changes, family genes, pregnancy, aging and weight gain.
The importance of proper exercise and dieting after undergoing the procedure cannot be stressed enough. If you want to keep the results, you’ll need to maintain a stable bodyweight.
If you start overeating, the fat will be stored in other areas of your body so that you could develop new pockets of stubborn fat.
As long as you practice proper exercise and dieting, you’ll be able to keep the results forever. Liposuction is especially useful for the removal of excess fat.
