For some people, diet and exercise can take them only so far. Successfully achieving your weight goals doesn't mean you've achieved your desired look and shape. There are millions of men and women who diet and work out regularly, yet never achieve the results they are looking for. If you've been dieting and exercising on a regular basis, and just can't seem to lose those extra "love handles", it may be time to consider liposuction. Liposuction can help you reduce the fatty deposits on your arms, torso and legs that just don't seem to disappear with regular exercise alone. Since 2003, liposuction has become one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures in the United States.
It's a popular choice for both men and women, with over 450,000 procedures occurring in 2005. Reasons for choosing liposuction vary from person to person. For some, it's a matter of looking better at the beach. For others, it may be a desire to look better for career advancement. While liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can improve the way you look and feel.
Liposuction is a procedure that contours the body, and reduces excess fatty deposits underneath the skin. Large volumes of saline solution, local anesthesia, and adrenaline are infused into the fatty area being treated. When the area swells, your surgeon will insert a small instrument underneath your skin. As the instrument is moved around, it suctions away fatty deposits, resulting in smoothing and resculpting of your treated area. The ideal candidate for liposuction will be in good health, and have a good diet and exercise program in place. This procedure is not meant for the obese, instead, it can help people reduce fatty deposits that are disproportionate to the rest of the body structure.
It is also ideal for someone with realistic expectations. While it will not dramatically change your appearance, you may notice significant changes to specific areas of your body. Liposuction is considered to be a permanent removal of fatty deposits.
The body does not create new fat cells after puberty. When you gain weight as an adult, you expand the fat cells that already exist within your body. Liposuction is a way to remove fat cells, and improve the contour of your existing body. The typical recovery period for liposuction surgery is fairly routine. The tiny incisions can be closed with one or two small stitches.
You will usually return home a couple of hours after surgery, and will be required to rest for a day or two. You can generally resume non-strenuous activities after two to three days. Best of all, liposuction has long lasting results. By keeping a healthy lifestyle in place, your results can last a lifetime.
Liposuction may be the perfect addition to your healthy living routine.
