Who can benefit from liposuction?
The best candidate for liposuction in Tampa FL has localized fat accumulation and firm, elastic skin.Liposuction is not a weight-loss solution.
Despite the removal of fat cells in the treated areas, weight growth and fat deposition can still occur.To keep the benefits after liposuction, a proper exercise and diet program must be followed.
What is the procedure’s procedure?
Depending on the amount of the treatment, liposuction may require general anesthesia or sedation.To gain access to the treatment sites, small incisions are created in discrete places.Compression garments are put once the operation is completed and must be worn for many weeks to achieve the greatest benefits.
How long does it take to recover?
Liposuction recovery varies greatly depending on the area and intensity of treatment.Patients experience tenderness, bruising, and general “soreness” in the treated areas, similar to muscle soreness after a tough workout.For the first 24 hours, there may be some seeping from the incision sites.
Liposculpture’s complete results will take many months to appear.
The fluids administered during the lipo operation may cause you to gain weight at initially, but the swelling will gradually reduce and you will be able to see your new silhouette.
