Read on to learn our top five reasons to consider liposuction. 

What you need to know about liposuction 

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or body contouring, is a surgical procedure that removes body fat from targeted areas through the use of a suction tool. Liposuction is ideal if you’re at a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat in specific areas, like the hips, tummy, arms, or neck. 

Liposuction can sculpt and contour your body shape, refining your curves and providing definition. It’s not a method for losing weight, but rather a way to rid you of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise. To be a candidate you should be near your ideal body weight and have some muscle tone. 

Depending on the targeted area, you either receive general anesthesia or Dr. Garcia applies a local anesthetic to numb the specific zone. After making a small incision, he uses a tube-like instrument to loosen and aspirate the fat. 

Finally, Dr. Garcia uses a surgical vacuum or syringe to suction out the undesired body fat. After the surgery, expect to see some swelling. Once the swelling subsides, you’ll notice the effects of your liposuction. 

Five reasons to consider liposuction 

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the United States. Here are five reasons why more than 300,000 liposuction procedures are performed every year. 

  1. You’ll enjoy permanent results 

When you have liposuction, the fat cells don’t grow back and can’t regenerate, meaning that the results you see in the mirror will remain. 

If you gain weight, however, other areas in the body with fat cells will expand. In addition to overall health benefits, maintaining healthy eating habits and exercise are essential for optimal results. 

  1. Advances in liposuction make recovery time fast 

Advancements in liposuction technologies and methodologies mean faster recovery times for patients. This means you’ll be able to get back to your daily activities within days instead of weeks. Even though full recovery time is usually 3-4 weeks, depending on the exact nature of your surgery, you’ll enjoy less swelling, pain, and bruising than ever before. 

  1. You can target stubborn areas 

Unlike bariatric surgery, which is intended to help people lose weight, liposuction is not designed to eliminate fat from every area. Instead, Dr. Garcia uses liposuction to target your “trouble zones.” 

It can be nearly impossible to target your stubborn areas through exercise and healthy eating. With liposuction, stubborn fat from areas like the stomach, thighs, upper arms, buttocks, calves, neck, back, and ankles can become a thing of the past. 

  1. You can reshape your body 

Even if you’re at or near your ideal body weight, you might have disproportionate weight in different places, like your arms or thighs. But because you don’t need to lose weight, it’s nearly impossible to get these stubborn pockets of fat to budge. 

Liposuction is an ideal way to balance out your body proportions without extreme dieting that can leave you unhealthy and sick. For the best results, Dr. Garcia can combine your liposuction with skin-tightening procedures or other plastic surgeries. 

  1. You’ll look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside 

After working hard to maintain your ideal body weight with diet and exercise, it can be frustrating when the results on the outside don’t live up to your efforts. The result can be decreased self-esteem and self-confidence. 

With liposuction, you’ll look as good on the outside as you feel inside. You’ll stop feeling self-conscious about your trouble areas and enjoy a boost to your self-confidence and be happy to show off your shape. 

If you’re ready to say goodbye to stubborn fat and hello to a more shapely, proportionate body, call the Plastic Surgery Arts Center or schedule an appointment online today.
