What else do I need to know about the treatment?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, like any other cosmetic surgery procedure, there are pros, cons and risks associated. Advancements in the liposuction technique have improved over the years. The recovery time has been improved. Incision areas have also been minimized. But why are some patients turned down when they elect the liposuction procedure?
Before having any cosmetic procedure done, it’s important to understand the details of the procedure and what it’s intended to achieve. When patients have unrealistic expectations from a cosmetic surgery procedure, a surgeon may turn them down or delay the surgery. When a surgeon turns away a patient, it’s because they are concerned about their health and safety.
Common misconceptions about the liposuction treatment:
Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment, and cannot help with obesity. It is intended for stubborn areas of fat. An ideal patient maintains normal weight, active lifestyle and proper diet.
Although liposuction may minimize the appearance of cellulite, it is not to be considered an effective method of treating cellulite. If you’re looking for a liposuction treatment hoping to rid your body of cellulite, you will be disappointed.
The treatment does not tighten loose and saggy skin. Patients may suffer from sagging skin after liposuction. The skin’s elasticity will vary with each patient, only a qualified surgeon will be able to discuss the details of what you can expect from liposuction based on your particular body.
