Are you tired of that extra-unwanted fat hanging from your body? Is your muffin top getting the best of you? Liposuction may be right for you! The purpose behind liposuction is to safely get to the fatty residue layered between skin and muscle, which is known as subcutaneous fat. This surplus fat is pumped out with a suction from the area of the body requested by the individual, leaving behind miniature tunnels that then collapse, leading to the body shape you wish for. Small incisions are made in the skin and a cannula is inserted into the fat pocket. The suction device is attached to the cannula and it begins to suck and extract the fat. It breaks down and removes the subcutaneous layer of fat. Common areas where liposuction is performed includes the chin, back of neck, bottom of upper arms, female breasts, thighs, abdomen, muffin top, and love handles. This procedure isn’t the proper choice for everyone since there are many different options that exist.
It is important to not forget that although liposuction eliminates body weight, it does not assist in the progress of weight loss. This procedure is not a weight loss procedure; it is just a way to remove a pocket of fat that doesn’t respond to any other method. A patient has to maintain optimal body weight for a precondition whilst adhering to a nutritious diet plan and engaging in regular exercise. This is undoubtedly the perfect approach to keeping up with your figure after liposuction.
Naturally, as we age, most will discover that body fat starts to store faster and easier than we would prefer, and it may be quite stubborn to eliminate from several areas of the body regardless of what we do. That is when liposuction might be the solution. It is a process that may also match other cosmetic procedures, which could be carried out on different areas of the human body.
For guys, body weight will form across the gut and round the neck and neck area. For ladies, it frequently gathers from the breasts, breasts and waist, and buttocks, though usually treated areas also have the thighs, calves, knees, ankles and beneath the chin.
It is important that a supportive family or friend is near your side to help before and after the surgery. To book a consultation for liposuction, contact Dr. Kassir today!
