As you gain weight you also face “the battle of the bulge”. It is a fact that certain people has slow metabolism and their fat cells do not shrink despite sensible diet and vigorous exercise. They can result from genetic factors and body chemistry. So no matter how hard these people fight, the bulge always win because it has a tougher army.
In problem like this, liposuction is an option. The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. It removes small bulges and improves your body’s contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. It is a routine cosmetic surgery performed by many plastic surgeons and considered also as the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States.
However, not all can be candidate for liposuction. A good candidate for liposuction must be
• physically fit
• exercise regularly
• not more than 20 pounds overweight or slightly above-average weight
• firm, elastic skin
• concentrated pockets of fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise
Liposuction, like any other surgical procedure, involves some risk. Common risks are infections and skin discolorations. However, when performed by a licensed specially trained plastic surgeon, the risks are minimized.
The cost and recovery depends on the type of liposuction you are undergoing. The procedure maybe performed as an outpatient in a surgery clinic or in a hospital that may require an overnight stay.
Although the fat cells are removed permanently through liposuction, you must follow a proper diet and must exercise regularly to keep your new body contour after liposuction.
