Liposuction is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments, yet many patients remain nervous about this minimally-invasive fat reduction procedure, concerned about downtime and discomfort. We’re thrilled to report that lipo is a much easier treatment than you may think! Here’s a look at three top benefits of lipo, and how it can help you to achieve your body contouring goals.
1. Immediate benefits.
There’s no other fat reduction treatment that provides faster results than liposuction. Lipo is a procedure that suctions out fat through a thin tube called a cannula, resulting in immediate fat reduction. However, optimal results are achieved in the weeks following your treatment, once swelling subsides and your body adjusts to its new contours.
2. Minimal downtime
Your downtime will depend on your particular treatment, based on the size and location of your treatment area and the amount of fat you want removed. While you will need to avoid vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for at least six weeks following your treatment, in addition to wearing a compression garment, you should be able to resume your normal schedule within a few days of your treatment. Surprising to many, liposuction is an outpatient procedure involving only a few days of rest at home.
3. Control over your results
Liposuction allows our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Bridge, to perform the most precise fat reduction treatments, removing specific areas of fat and the exact amount needed to achieve optimal results. Non-invasive fat reduction such as CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, provides a more general approach.
