Psychologists have discovered that one of the things that contributes to a person’s happiness is having something to look forward to. This may be one of the reasons many people approach a program of diet and exercise with a sense of excitement. They are looking forward to looking and feeling better. Some people, however, find that no matter how much they exercise, they still have stubborn deposits of fat. Liposuction may be the perfect solution for that.
What Does Liposuction Do?
Liposuction is a fat-reducing technique that can trim the waistline, thighs, or other areas. By removing excess fat, liposuction makes the body look more sculpted and contoured. A small hollow tube (a “cannula”) that is connected to suction is inserted into the fatty tissues and passed back-and-forth rapidly, creating small honeycombed channels. The surrounding fat that remains “collapses” into the small channels, resulting in less ‘bulk’ and an enhanced contour.
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis; you go home the same day. You should expect some swelling, bruising, and soreness for a few days after surgery. The skin may also feel tender to the touch. Many patients return to work in 5 to 7 days.
Why Liposuction Makes Sense
Achieving an ideal shape can be a challenge. Liposuction doesn’t do all the work for you, but it can help get you where you want to be. The body does not grow new fat cells, so the results of liposuction may last many years. When diet and exercise don’t result in the body shape you expected, liposuction helps picks up the slack. The procedure can be performed on those hard-to-sculpt places like the thighs, hips, back, arms, and even under the chin.
