Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries among both men and women. It is intended for people who are in good general health but have trouble areas that diet and exercise simply fail to address.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who perform liposuction without board certification as a plastic surgeon. It is often thought of as a simple procedure that doesn’t require a skilled hand, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Usually people who are unhappy with their liposuction results are those who didn’t take the time to find a cosmetic surgeon skilled in the art of liposuction.
In my new practice serving Santa Barbara and Santa Monica, liposuction is one of my main specialties. Every person’s body is different, but usually liposuction for women focuses on the neck, underarms, midsection, buttocks, or thighs. Thanks to new advances in lipo technology, it can be as precise as you like, and can even be used to create the appearance of a chiseled physique.
Liposuction Treatments Must Be Unique to You
There are a lot of different methods that can be used for liposuction, and which one is right for you will depend upon your body type, age, and desired results. In general, I prefer to use vaser liposuction, or vaser lipo for short. This type of liposuction is usually performed using only a local anesthetic, and the recovery time is extremely short. Almost everyone can expect to go back to work after receiving vaser lipo in just one day.
Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to precisely target fat deposits under the skin. The more precise your cosmetic surgeon is, the more effectively they’ll be able to meet your specific surgery goals.
One of the great benefits of liposuction is that you are less likely to gain weight in the targeted areas after the procedure is done. However, that doesn’t mean you get to stop exercising. Maintaining a healthy diet and workout routine will only help enhance your results following a liposuction procedure.
Whether you have a small pooch that you simply can’t get rid of or are hoping to re-sculpt your entire body, liposuction can help you attain a physique that is as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside.
