What Is Liposuction?
You’ve most likely heard of liposuction before, which is a safe body contouring procedure designed to remove unwanted body fat. In fact, it’s one of the fastest ways to remove body fat and contour your silhouette into a gorgeous shape. It’s a safe procedure for many areas of the body, including:
What Can Liposuction Do for Your Body?
Lipo is one of the oldest and most trusted cosmetic surgeries on the market and has been safely used for over forty years. Over that time, the procedure has evolved and improved to produce safer, more effective results. Newer technological advancements mean that it’s much easier and quicker to remove large or small amounts of body fat. It can also tighten the skin so you can enjoy beautiful, natural-looking results.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Lipo Surgery?
Lipo offers several benefits for patients, which is why it’s one of the most popular procedures here at Female Plastic Surgery Associates of Tennessee. If you elect for this surgery, it can help you eliminate unwanted body fat in multiple different areas, producing fantastic results.
One of the best parts of lipo is that it’s incredibly versatile. Since it can be used to eliminate multiple areas of body fat at one time, it can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments, like fat transfers, tummy tucks, or Mommy makeovers. Of course, those aren’t the only benefits of getting this procedure. There are many others, including:
The primary purpose of electing for lipo surgery is to achieve better and more balanced body proportions. Many women tend to have accumulations of unwanted body fat in body areas that are very hard to work off, including the underarms, thighs, and stomach. If you’re suffering from this problem, the chances are that your current body proportions make you look heavier and takes a toll on your self-confidence, too.
Our brilliant doctors, Dr. Natasha Luckey and Dr. Krista O’Shaughnessy, are experts in liposuction surgery. They can help correct your proportions to give you the perfect silhouette you’ve always dreamed of having. Once your body proportions are better balanced, you’ll probably find it much easier to do things like exercise or even bend down to tie your shoes. Of course, there’s also the best benefit of all: looking beautiful and sexy in a tiny bikini or lingerie. You’ll have a much easier time finding cute clothes that actually fit!
Another great benefit of lipo is that it’s a permanent procedure that will last for years or even decades if you maintain your results properly. Why is lipo permanent? Well, the answer has to do with the inherent nature of fat cells. Unlike every other cell in the body, once fat cells are destroyed or removed, they’re not replaced by new cells. So, to maintain your results for as long as possible, you need to watch your weight.
If you don’t watch your weight or diet, your body won’t create new fat cells. However, the remaining fat cells will be able to expand to store more fat for energy. So, it’s extremely important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet after your procedure. Drink in moderation, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet to help keep your body looking slim and beautiful.
Once you’re happy with your results and how your body looks, you can enjoy a huge boost of self-confidence. While this may seem cliche, it’s not something that should be taken lightly. Feeling better about your appearance is something that can be literally life-changing. When you look good, you feel good, and you’re more likely to be happy and make healthier lifestyle choices. So, if you’re ready to live your best life, we can help you with that!
What Is the Lipo Procedure Like?
When you elect lipo surgery, you can expect to undergo general or local anesthesia. However, this is dependent on your exact treatment plan. Our expert doctors will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique body needs.
During the procedure, we make a small incision in the area where the fat is going to be removed. Then, we use a suction device to gently remove unwanted body fat. The treatment usually takes about two hours or sometimes more, based on how many areas you’re having treated. During your recovery process, you’ll most likely have to wear compression garments for several weeks to help you maintain your results and tighten the skin.
How Much Weight Can You Lose?
Here at Female Plastic Surgery Associates of Tennessee, we genuinely care about our patients, so we want you to have realistic expectations about your procedure. We want to be clear that lipo is not designed as a weight reduction or weight loss treatment. Instead, it’s a body contouring treatment that will help you achieve a slimmer, tighter figure.
No matter how much fat you have removed during this treatment, you won’t lose very much weight because body fat weighs less than muscle. However, you can expect to lose about one dress or pant size after your treatment or even more if you’re willing to commit to a regular exercise program and a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Lipo?
The most suitable candidates for lipo include those who can have at least 30% of their body fat removed safely. If you’re within at least 20% of your target weight, then you’re most likely a good candidate as well. We design your treatment plan so that it’s just one stepping stone on your weight loss journey. Other women qualified for this treatment include those who aren’t pregnant, those who are within the right weight range, and of course, those healthy enough for surgery.
