Eliminate Stubborn Fat
You've been trying to get rid of stubborn fat pockets, but nothing has worked, right? Liposuction can be your solution if you're within 30% of your optimum body weight, are not a smoker, and have reasonable expectations regarding your results. Liposuction is a powerful technique that can help shape your body, removing the fat directly from the targeted areas. At Genoway Plastic Surgery in Surrey liposuction expert, Dr. Krista Genoway, works with you to ensure your goals are met.
With liposuction, fat is surgically removed from specific areas, resulting in a more trim and thin figure. This technique can also be used to either masculinize or feminize your figure, depending on your surgical goals. Common locations for liposuction include the neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, flanks, back, and legs.
Liposuction improves the body's appearance and the patient's health. Liposuction is a popular procedure in Western Canada because it is an effective way to achieve desired results. For example, liposuction can be performed when a person has increased weight or obesity or has lost weight but still has stubborn fat pockets. This procedure removes unwanted fat cells through tiny incisions and can often be utilized in combination with other surgical procedures to enhance results.
Liposuction may be the best option if you are within 30% of your optimum body weight, are not a smoker, and have reasonable expectations regarding your results. The best candidates for liposuction are people who have tried diet and exercise but still can't seem to get rid of those sticky fat pockets. If you think you might be a good candidate for liposuction Surrey area residents are encouraged to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure. First, the area to be treated is marked, and a small incision is made discreetly in the skin. Dr. Genoway then performs liposuction in a three-step process. The fat is first separated from the surrounding tissue using specialized liposuction cannulas. After this crucial step, the fat is carefully aspirated and removed from the body.
A third step redistributes the remaining fat cells leaving you with a smooth and uniform contour. Dissolving sutures are used to close small incisions, and waterproof dressings are used to allow you to shower immediately after surgery.
Break up with Love Handles
Following your liposuction procedure, you will be wrapped in a compression garment or an elastic bandage. It is essential to wear this garment as Dr. Genoway directed to minimize swelling and help your skin conform to its new shape. You might experience some bruising and swelling for the first few weeks, but this will gradually improve. Most patients take approximately two weeks before feeling their best.
Get Control of Your Body
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve your desired body. The final results from your Surrey liposuction procedure may not be immediately noticeable and can often take several months to appreciate as the swelling goes down. This is why it is very important to wear your compression garment. In addition, you will notice a significant enhancement in the contour of your body and a reduction in the size of stubborn fat pockets.
Patients report that liposuction is not as painful as they anticipated. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and reduce pain post-surgery. Most people report only feeling minor discomfort during the procedure.
The side effects of liposuction are usually mild and temporary. They may include bruising, swelling, and soreness. Very uncommonly, more serious side effects have been reported, and these can include deep vein thrombosis and fat embolism.
