How liposuction works
Liposuction is a procedure used for body contouring if your skin elasticity is still good. It targets the troubles areas of your body where it is almost impossible to get rid of excess localized fats through regular exercise and proper nutrition. During your consultation with Dr. Bloch, such areas will be identified and the procedure will be designed and agreed. Fats on those areas will be targeted for removal and the skin will be expected to conform to your new body contours.
Liposuction is intended to reduce and smooth the contours of the body and improve a person’s appearance. Its goal is cosmetic improvement. It is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. Liposuction does not remove large quantities of fat and is not intended as a weight reduction technique. The average amount of fat removed is about a quart (liter). Although liposuction is not intended to remove cellulite (lumpy fat), some doctors believe that it improves the appearance of areas that contain cellulite, including thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and chin. A new technique called liposhaving shows more promise at reducing cellulite.
How the procedure is performed
Liposuction is a procedure that performed while the patient is put under general anesthesia or local anesthesia as recommended by the surgeon. Only small incisions are required, and through them a thin tube known as a cannula is inserted to access the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth to help dislodge the fats targeted for removal. The liquefied fats are then suctioned out into a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula. The small incisions are then closed to complete the procedure. Dr. Bloch will perform the procedure using surgical techniques that will minimize risks and provide aftercare instructions to promote fast recovery before your Christmas.
Liposuction surgery sculpts your body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures.
