What You Should Know About Liposuction

Exercise and diet help a lot in acquiring a slim, contoured body, but can’t always eliminate stubborn, fatty deposits. Fortunately, liposuction is the gold standard in eradicating stubborn fat from various regions of the body. There can be a lot of misinformation about liposuction, however, so it’s important to have an idea of your procedure before you schedule your consultation. If you’re looking for long-term results without the hassle of non-surgical treatment packages, liposuction might be the right procedure for you.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the removal of extra fat deposits from particular areas of the body using suction. A small cannula, or thin metal tube, is inserted through incisions at the treatment area and the fat is suctioned out through a surgical vacuum. This technique usually requires the use of a sweeping motion to help break up fat deposits for more effective removal.

Are You a Good Candidate for Liposuction in Fort Myers?

Individuals who are not overweight and nearing their ideal body weight with specific irremovable fat deposits are good candidates for liposuction. If you are looking to reshape, contour, and redefine the problematic fatty areas of your body that are resistant to diet and exercise, then you are an ideal candidate for liposuction.

How long is recovery from Liposuction?

The liposuction method and the size of the treatment area determine the recovery process. In order to lessen bruising and swelling, and to maintain the new contour, a gauze is firmly wrapped around the treatment area that has to be worn for about 10 days. Most patients return to light work after a few days of downtime, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure.
