If you want to look your absolute best, there are many things that you can do on your own. You can eat right, for one, and you can exercise regularly. Of course, that does not guarantee that you will be able to get the look that you have always wanted. Sometimes there are stubborn pockets of fat in different parts of the body that just do not respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise. When all else fails, there is an Ogden plastic surgery option to consider: liposuction.
Liposuction is not used for weight loss surgery. In fact, only a certain amount of body fat can be removed safely from the body. Rather, liposuction is used to get rid of those final stubborn pockets of fat that you just can’t remove through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is often used with other body contouring surgeries as well, such as tummy tuck and arm lift surgery.
Best Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are people in good overall health who do not have any medical conditions that would prevent them from undergoing surgery. These patients will have realistic expectations for what liposuction can accomplish as well. Dr. Lee Malan, a skilled plastic surgeon in Ogden, will determine if liposuction is best for your during your consultation.
Types of Liposuction
There are different kinds of liposuction out there that can meet your needs. These options are each considered carefully depending on your situation. Let’s just briefly go over them right now.
One of the more popular ways to perform Ogden liposuction is tumescent liposuction. Tumescent liposuction involves the injection of a special fluid into the treatment area. This fluid will help reduce pain during treatment and help firm up the fat in the area so that it is easier to remove. The thin needle known as a cannula is then inserted into the treatment area to extract the fat.
Ultrasonic liposuction is performed just like tumescent liposuction with an important variation. The cannula used administers ultrasonic sound waves. This helps liquefy the firmed-up fat, making it even easier to remove from the body.
Liposuction for the Chest, Upper Torso, and Breasts
Sometimes when performing breast enhancement surgery, liposuction can be used to improve the overall appearance of the chest area and breasts. In fact, liposuction can be used for other contouring needs in the upper torso area, including the tricep and shoulder area and flanks.
Most people think that liposuction is only for the abdominal area, the body, or the buttocks, but that’s not true. In fact, facial liposuction can be performed for the neckline, the lower eyelids, and the cheek and jowl area. All of these options can help give you a more chiseled and appealing appearance.
