3 Reasons Why Liposuction Is a Popular Plastic Surgery Procedure
Target Problem AreasCertain areas like your abdomen, buttocks, back, and arms are impossible to target, no matter how hard you exercise. Using a small instrument called a cannula, our plastic surgeons can target and remove fat in these stubborn areas.
Get Fast ResultsNon-surgical methods of weight loss can take months to show any results. But men and women who undergo liposuction at our Halifax, Nova Scotia, plastic surgery practice often see immediate results after a brief recovery period.
Look and Feel GreatBy providing a tighter, more toned appearance, liposuction can help you feel confident in revealing clothing. And the increase in your self-esteem can also help you feel better in nearly every area of your life.
To Qualify, Patients Should Have...
Good HealthAlmost any generally healthy person who is affected by isolated fat deposits is a good candidate for body contouring through liposuction.
Reached Their Ideal WeightLiposuction is not a weight loss procedure. If your goal is to lose a significant amount of weight, you should seek out another approach.
Sufficient Skin ElasticityLiposuction is not ideal for removing excess skin after weight loss in the way that a tummy tuck is, nor is it an effective treatment option for skin conditions such as stretch marks and cellulite.
At the Landings Surgical Centre, serving patients in Halifax, Prince Edward Island, and surrounding areas, tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used technique. This procedure involves the injection of a fluid consisting of an anesthetic and saline to loosen fat and minimize bleeding. After administering the tumescent fluid, our surgeons insert a suction tube through a small incision to remove the excess fat tissue.
Areas of the body such as love handles or male breasts respond better to ultrasonic liposuction. In this procedure, the suction tube vibrates at a very high frequency to break up fat deposits, making them easier to remove. Patients are evaluated thoroughly to determine which liposuction technique is best for them.
A Brief Recovery Period
The treated areas are likely to be sore, but this soreness can be controlled with rest and medication. Your legs should be kept elevated for a few days after surgery.
First Few Weeks
Most patients are able to resume sedentary work less than a week after liposuction, and strenuous activity is safe within three weeks.
First Few Months
Residual swelling in the treatment area dissipates over the course of four to six months to reveal the full results of surgery.
With our exemplary safety record, very few patients who choose The Landings Surgical Centre for their aesthetic surgery needs experience serious complications from liposuction procedures.
