These days, many people find themselves collecting excess fat around the hip and thigh regions. If this is the case for you, liposuction may be the solution to the problem. As we age, our bodies can become resistant to diet and exercise and many people struggle with stubborn body fat that never seems to go away. Liposuction could help you get the results you’re looking for, so you can get the body of your dreams. While it’s not designed for extreme weight loss, it can help rid you of some of the trouble zones that regular diet and exercise have left untouched.
Liposuction: A Brief Overview
Liposuction is a kind of cosmetic surgery that works by first breaking up and subsequently sucking excess fat from an individual’s body. Liposuction can be utilized to remove fat from various body regions, including the stomach, buttocks, thighs, chin, neck, calves, back, and arms. The excess fat is removed from the body through the use of an instrument called a cannula. The cannula is inserted beneath the surface layer of the patient’s skin. Within America as well as the United Kingdom, liposuction is the most prevalent cosmetic operation. Each year, more than 400,000 liposuction procedures are completed in the US.
The Limits of Liposuction
Although liposuction is an effective way to remove excess fat from the body, it cannot be used to treat obesity. It is also not a good substitute for proper exercise and diet. Additionally, liposuction cannot be used to treat cellulite, which is the dimpled skin that often begins to appear on an individual’s buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Best Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are individuals who are within 30 percent of their correct weight and have elastic, firm skin. Ideal candidates will also have good muscle tone and no medical conditions that might impair the healing process. The best candidates for liposuction are also non-smokers who have a positive life outlook as well as specific objectives regarding their purpose for attaining liposuction.
