Liposuction: Targeted Fat Removal for a Slimmer You

Weight loss is a hard and grueling process. But sometimes, even after all those hours at the gym and strict dieting, you still have a few areas of excess fat that just refuse to go. This can decrease your confidence levels and do a number on your self-esteem. Don’t worry, though – liposuction surgery can help you get rid of that stubborn fat.

Liposuction is among the most sought-after cosmetic procedures out there. Not only is it virtually safe, it is also very effective. It targets the fat cells and gets rid of them once and for all, leaving you with a more toned and shapely figure. Liposuction can be used on almost all of your body parts.

How Does It Work?

First, general anesthesia will be administered. Local anesthesia with sedation may instead be used depending on the preferences of you and Dr. Kaye. These are administered for your comfort throughout the surgery. You’ll discuss your anesthesia options as part of your consultation.

Next, Dr. Kaye will make inconspicuous and small incisions. He will then insert a thin cannula through the incisions so that he can loosen some of the excess fat. He’ll move the cannula back and forth gently to dislodge the fat cells. The fat will then be suctioned from the body through the cannula, reducing the targeted regions in volume.

Which Areas Can Be Targeted?

Liposuction is an incredibly versatile procedure and can be used to reduce numerous regions of the body in volume:

• Back
• Upper arms
• Flanks
• Buttocks
• Hips
• Inner knees
• Neck
• Chest
• Thighs
• Waist
• Abdomen
• Breasts
• Chin

The Liposuction Recovery Process

It’s vital that during your recovery process, you follow the post-surgical directions of Dr. Kaye very closely. These directions will help you keep the recovery period as short and comfortable as possible with minimal to no complications.

After liposuction has been completed, you will notice a degree of post-surgical bruising and swelling in the treatment areas. This is normal and will reduce over time as part of the recovery and healing process. To aid in amelioration of these issues, patients wear post-surgical support garments. These help the skin shrink down and better conform to the new contours of the body.

The Results of Your Liposuction

You can see a difference almost immediately after your liposuction procedure. After the swelling has gone down, you will be able to see your full results. You will have a more toned figure, and clothes will start fitting better. You’ll find yourself going to the events you used to specifically avoid because you were embarrassed about your excess fat.
