How Does Liposuction Work?

Take losing weight, for instance – you can live a healthy lifestyle for years, with a good diet and constant exercise, and yet still have fat that you just can’t get rid of. But finally losing that fat may be easier than you think, thanks to liposuction. Read on for some more information about how liposuction works!

How does liposuction get rid of fat?

In liposuction, the fat is literally sucked out of the body through a tube. There are different techniques for liposuction – for instance, in one technique an ultrasonic device is used to break up and destroy fat cells, after which they are removed. The technique used may depend on how much fat the patient has or if this is a second liposuction procedure.

Typically, liposuction can remove inches from the area that is being treated – it can be used on the upper arms, the stomach, the calves, the hips, the buttocks, the thighs, and the neck. The procedure isn’t meant to reduce a lot of fat; it is used to tone and contour areas with stubborn fat that won’t go away on its own.

Patients typically only need one session, although it may need to be spread out over a series of sessions — this can depend on the patient’s overall health. There will be some swelling and bruising after the procedure and discomfort that can be relieved with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

Liposuction is a great solution to help contour the body in all the right places, and the results can be long lasting – but you should make sure to eat a healthy diet and exercise after the procedure so that you can stay healthy and keep that excess fat from coming back.

If you’ve been trying to lose that extra bit of fat for years and it just won’t go away, liposuction may be the answer for you. Contact the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center to discuss liposuction. Call the office in Chester, New Jersey, at (908) 879-2222, for an appointment today!
