After weight-loss, their are cosmetic enhancements
you may consider.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic
procedures performed in America. The fact is not surprising
because it is affordable, rewarding and safe way to lose problem
areas of fat that have been frustratingly unresponsive to
diet and exercise.
It is important t understand that no person is perfectly symmetrical
from one side to the other. If body-contouring surgery is
indicated, every attempt will be made during surgery to minimize
your side to side dissimilarities, but such differences always
persist to some degree, even after the most successful operation.
This procedure may be effective in removing fat from the neck,
arms, flanks, abdomen, hips, trochanteric area ("saddle
bags"), thighs, knees, calves and ankles. It should be
emphasized from the outset that the procedure has limitations
in the amount of fat that can be removed and the amount of
body sculpting that can be accomplished. The tumescent technique
as well as the reduced pressure (aspiration) enables larger
removals of fat with minimized blood loss. What this means
to the patient is increased safety, a better and faster recovery
and greatly improved results.
This procedure is most effective in patients with good skin
elasticity, as their skin will contract after the fat has
been removed. However, as long as the patient understands
that this procedure is designed to remove fat and not tot
tighten skin they will be happy with their results.
