Liposuction in Salt Lake City
Stubborn fat is just that — stubborn. The good news is that there is an effective way to remove excess fat. With our liposuction, you may not have to deal with the challenge of body fat reduction too long.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction or “lipo” sculpts and trims certain areas of the body. It involves removing excess fat deposits by making small incisions along the area to be treated where surgeons will place a tube called a “cannula” inside. The instrument is then fitted with a high-pressure vacuum to break up and take out the fat.
The surgery improves the contours of the body and keeps it in proportion.
There are various techniques and forms of anesthetic for the procedure. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Steven Warnock to discuss which option is suitable for you. You may also talk about other procedures, such as breast reductions or tummy tucks, to achieve your desired look.
Good candidates for this procedure are people generally in good shape and individuals with realistic expectations. While liposuction is an effective way to remove excess fat, it is not a weight loss solution.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
You can have liposuction on any area of your body, including your arms, thighs, legs, chin, cheeks, calves, waist, and abdomen.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Men and women who have excess fat, are in generally good health and have realistic expectations are typically considered to be good candidates for this procedure. While liposuction effectively and permanently removes excess fat, it is not a solution for weight loss. Doctor Warnock will evaluate your medical history and cosmetic goals to determine if liposuction is right for you.
Is Downtime Necessary?
Depending on the extent of the procedure, recovery period may vary from one patient to another. During the healing period, compression garments or bandages will reduce the swelling. Incision sites may also require aftercare.
The stitches come off after a week and after this, you may return to work — and reveal a shapely new you.
How Long Do Results Last?
The results will last, given that you maintain a stable weight and keep a healthy lifestyle. Other factors that may affect the results are pregnancy and aging. The effects of the procedure will be apparent after the swelling and fluid retention subside.
