There are innumerable reasons for excess weight gain, or obesity, and high profile celebrities waging “The Battle of the Bulge” are all over the media. However, patients with certain body types may maintain excellent health and a thin body, but still have pockets or patches of excess fat. These are the best candidates for liposuction. Viewing liposuction before after photos can be one of the most dramatic ways to observe the work of exceptional board certified plastic surgeons.
Consulting at length with your plastic surgeon is essential. At We Know Beauty, we can achieve incomparable levels of success in liposuction, and deliver results beyond patients’ expectations in some circumstances, but expectations must nonetheless be realistic, and circumstances must be taken into account.
How Does Liposuction work?
Most likely, your doctors will make a decision at your consultation about whether to use special techniques like Power Assisted Liposuction (P.A.L.), or Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (U.A.L.). Your doctor will have some idea at this time of whether you’ll need to stay overnight, or whether your liposuction procedure will be “ambulatory” or an outpatient procedure. This determination is generally based on the volume of fat being removed.
After your consultation, and after you and the doctors at We Know Beauty have formed a complete plan, it will soon be the day of your surgery. For precision’s sake, it’s necessary to mark target areas while you’re standing. It may also be advisable that we use general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a tiny incision, and insert a hi-tech instrument called a cannula.
Even if your liposuction procedure is an outpatient procedure, you shouldn’t drive home, due to the odd sensation of leftover anesthesia. Liposuction recovery times vary depending on the volume removed, but advanced safety procedures and non-invasiveness available only at We Know Beauty make your recovery extraordinarily short, and relatively pain-free.
