Due to its many benefits, liposuction is the most requested plastic surgery procedure patients seek after breast augmentations. Sometimes referred to as lipoplasty or body contouring, liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment that slims and shapes body areas that haven’t responded to weight loss or exercise.
The highly skilled surgeons at Napa Solano Plastic Surgery use leading-edge liposuction tools and techniques to reduce stubborn localized fat on the abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks, and more.
The Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction offers many advantages, including being an outpatient procedure with a relatively quick recovery. Other benefits include:
- It’s safe. Liposuction only requires small incisions to the targeted areas.
- It permanently removes fat cells. Once the fat cells are removed, they do not grow back, though you can gain fat in another area.
- Improved health. Because liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits, it helps you move closer to your ideal weight and BMI (body mass index).
- Enhanced appearance. A more aesthetically appealing shape can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
If you’ve tried eating well and working out but still have body fat in places you wish you didn’t, liposuction can be the right treatment for you.
The Liposuction Procedure
After the minor incisions are made, the surgeon injects a fluid to anesthetize the area and break up the fat cells. A tiny tube or cannula is then inserted into the incision, suction is applied, and a pure, free-of-blood form of fat is removed.
Once your procedure is over, you might experience some soreness for the first 24 to 72 hours, and you might have some swelling of the treated areas. Bruising can occur but is usually mild. In fact, most of our patients return to most normal activities within a day or two. However, we do recommend you refrain from strenuous activities for approximately two to three weeks following your liposuction procedure.
