Liposuction surgery has now become the most popular form of plastic surgery. This procedure is used to improve your figure in either one specific area, or in several areas. In today's world, liposculpture has become both a scientific procedure and an artistic one, incorporating a concern for your well-being and health during and after surgery with a genuine artistic sculpting of tissues. If you are considering liposculpture, there are several cosmetic surgeons in the Temecula area who can assist you with the procedure of your choice.
Improving Your Body's Contour
If you want liposuction to improve your body's contour and have tried every diet known to man and a multitude of exercise programs, and those problem areas just won't go away, then liposculpture may be for you. It is important to realize that suction lipectomy is not a method of weight reduction in itself, as relatively little weight of fat is removed from the body when the surgery is performed safely. The procedure is designed specifically to improve body contour. Therefore, it is important for you to be as close to your target goal weight as possible.
Liposuction will not change the appearance of your skin. If your skin is loose, dimpled, wrinkled, or has multiple depressions or waves prior to surgery, it will not be improved following surgery. Basically, if you have firm elastic skin with minimal wrinkling and redundancy, with well-controlled and stable weight, and with limited areas of fatty tissue excess, that you will receive the best results. Localized deposits of excess fat in the hips and "saddle bag" areas, as well as inner and outer thigh areas, are where you will see the most improvement.
The Surgical Procedure
The procedure itself can be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours, depending on how much work that you want done and in what areas of the body. Liposuction is generally performed as an outpatient. Incisions are made in the skin and are ï¾¬ inch in length and are placed in inconspicuous skin folds with minimal or no shaving of hair. Modern liposculpture is very well rounded, rather than just in the problem areas.
Pain, swelling and bruising may occur the first week following the procedure, but this will be the worst that you will experience any of these symptoms. Between week one and week two, it is not uncommon to feel tired and sometimes during the third week a little depression can crawl in. You can return to your normal activities in three to six weeks, and be back to work to work in 3-6 days.
