"The friendliest liposuction resource online..."
Looking for a quick and efficient way to digest the important liposuction facts?...
Well, this article was designed with you in mind. It is not an in-depth look at liposuction, or the issues related to liposuction - but if you want a quick overview...
here it is...
Without further ado - let's talk about the most salient liposuction information - that may orient you to some of the more in-depth articles on Lettys-Liposuction-Directory.com.
Let's get started.
Liposuction is intended for body contouring. It is not intended as a means of weight loss.
During liposuction, body fat is removed from under the skin with the use of vacuum suction either with a hollow pen-like instrument called a "canula", or an ultrasonic probe that breaks fat up into small pieces and then removes it.
While physicians may perform liposuction on the abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, arms, buttocks, back, neck, or face, it has never been cleared for use on the neck or face.
Liposuction is also used in medical procedures such as reduction of a man's chest size (or breasts - if you will). Also liposuction is often used in the removal of fat tumors - called lipomas...
Some of the risks of liposuction: infections, embolisms, puncture wounds in the organs, seroma, paresthesias, swelling, skin necrosis, burns, fluid imbalance, toxicity from anesthesia, scars, and bumpy or wavy appearance after surgery.
Liposuction is not for everyone. If you are overweight and trying to lose weight, or if you have a disease you are probably not a good candidate for liposuction surgery.
Liposuction is most effective on patients who have firm, elastic skin with only localized pockets of fat. Patients who have good muscle-tone, and who are within 30% of their ideal body weight make the best potential patients for liposuction surgery.
The removal of fat cells during liposuction surgery is permanent. However, the patient may increase the size of remaining fat cells if the diet is not controlled and moderated post-surgery. And the patient may develop new fat cells in different places on the body if, diet and exercise are not practiced during life-style changes, post-surgery.
Older patients have less elastic skin, and therefore they may not be good candidates for this procedure practiced as a sole procedure. Liposuction in conjunction with skin removal or tightening surgeries may still in fact be preferable to liposuction alone.
Patients with generalized fat distribution (in other words need to lose significant weight overall) rather than localized pockets, are not good candidates for liposuction surgery.
