Liposuction treatment involves directly extracting unwanted fat deposits from the body. Cosmetic surgeons refer to it as a fat reduction procedure because it is a system that patients can use to eliminate unwanted lumps and bumps. It is not a weight-loss tool.
Here are some of the benefits of liposuction, and why you might consider it.
It can improve your self-worth
Diet and exercise help you lose weight, but not always evenly across your body. You may find that you still have unwanted fat deposits on your buttocks, hips, thighs, waist, back, or arms, and this may knock your confidence.
Liposuction is a technique that specifically targets these stubborn areas. It loosens fat that won’t respond to conventional diet and exercise and removes it directly. The affected area appears reduced in size, which can improve confidence about your body image.
It combats gynaecomastia
Gynaecomastia is a condition in which fat tissue accumulates under the chest, giving men the appearance of breasts. Causes of the condition include weight gain, hormonal changes, and genetics.
In some cases, lifestyle changes can reverse the condition, but not always. In that event, liposuction is the only viable option to remove unwanted tissue.
It enhances physical appearance
If your belly sticks out or your thighs seem too big for the rest of your body, liposuction offers powerful sculpting action. The technique gives patients the ability to mould their bodies in powerful and targeted ways, without necessarily relying on diet and exercise.
Liposuction lets patients quickly shed unwanted body fat in problem areas such as:
- Love handles
Overall, it results in a more toned, symmetrical, and aesthetically pleasing physique.
It lasts a long time
The effects of liposuction can be long-lasting, provided patients continue their diet and exercise regime. Liposuction physically removes fat cells from the body. Because the body cannot create new fat cells, weight gain can only take place by further engorging those that are already there. Hence, after liposuction, lumps and bumps may find it harder to return.
It’s a simple operation
While liposuction is an invasive procedure, it is also a simple one. This procedure is perfectly safe, and performed on tens of thousands of patients per year.
Before the operation, patients need to go through some basic health checks to ensure that they are fit for the procedure. During the surgery, patients receive a general anaesthetic that lasts for up to four hours. The cosmetic surgeon inserts suction tubes through small holes in the skin to remove fat. Some liposuction techniques also use ultrasound or special mechanized systems to help loosen and remove unwanted adipose tissue.
