Why Consider Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the field today because it sculpts the body non-surgically by extracting fatty deposits from problem areas in the face and body, such as the chin, neck, upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, and legs. Liposuction treatments produce a smooth and tight body contour that makes your clothes fit better by eliminating unsightly bulges and bumps. The newest technology now available in liposuction treatments provides more precise results and quicker recovery periods than ever before.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction treatments basically target fatty deposits, break down fat, and then extract it through a suctioning mechanism. A narrow tube or cannula is inserted through a tiny incision and directed into fatty tissue, destroying fat cells and extracting them through a vacuum. The treatment time will vary, depending on the size of the treatment area and other factors. Multiple areas may be treated during one treatment session. To aid in swelling and bruising, Dr. Mang recommends the use of arnica before and after surgery.
About Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
At Mang Plastic Surgery, we offer power-assisted liposuction, which uses the same tools as a traditional procedure, with the added bonus of a vibrating tool to help break down the fat more effectively. This allows treatment for patients with an accumulation of excess fat in more dense areas, such as the back and upper abdomen.
Can I Use Liposuction to Lose Excess Weight?
While liposuction does produce a more trim and defined body contour, and may remove inches of fat from the body, this procedure is not a weight loss treatment, and is not recommended for patients who are more than 30 pounds overweight or those who are trying to lose weight. We recommend that you wait until your weight is stabilized closer to your ideal weight to undergo liposuction treatment.
Is Lipo Right for Me?
Liposuction is an optimal cosmetic treatment for patients whose weight is stabilized within 25 pounds of their ideal target weight, and who lead healthy, active lifestyles and maintain a healthy, balanced diet. Liposuction is ideal for patients who have undergone weight loss and want to eliminate the last stubborn bulges and bumps that often cling to specific problem areas and do not respond to diet and exercise.
What Can I Expect After a Liposuction Treatment?
While liposuction is not an invasive as surgery, plan to take it easy for a few days, as you may not look or feel your best immediately after the treatment.
It is common for most patients to experience varying degrees of pain, swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness. These symptoms may be managed with prescription medication or with the natural herb arnica, though you may experience soreness and discomfort for a few days.
Healing happens gradually and the process varies with each individual. As soon as possible after your treatment, we recommend that you begin walking, to help reduce swelling and prevent blood clots from forming. After a week or two, you should be back to your usual self, gradually resuming your normal activities.
