Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments helping people attain the body they desire. While it’s not a weight loss solution, liposuction is an effective tool to remove stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. Think difficult areas like your love handles, inner thighs or even man boobs.
So why are people lining up to receive Liposuction Treatment? Here’s a list of the many benefits liposuction treatment can offer:
Liposuction targets areas of stubborn fat
Regardless of how many abs or hill sprints you do, it’s impossible to target fat loss. With liposuction areas of the body can be targeted. Common areas include abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and legs, calves, arms, back and the male chest. So, for those who regularly workout and maintain a healthy diet, but struggle to lose their muffin top or arm fat, liposuction can be beneficial.
Contours are smoothed & skin tightened
Liposuction helps to contour your body shape without undergoing invasive surgery. Depending on the type of liposuction, the contours can be accurately smoothed and the skin tightened through the stimulation of collagen production. This can be particularly beneficial for those who are concerned about sagging skin because of weight loss or body contouring procedures.
There is minimal scarring
The incisions made during a liposuction procedure are so small that they heal exceptionally well and can easily be concealed in the natural skin folds. This is a welcome benefit of liposuction as other, more invasive fat removal procedures such as a tummy tuck or body lift tend to cause larger scars that make it much harder to conceal.
Recovery is relatively quick
Recovery from liposuction is relatively quick in comparison to the more invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. It does however, greatly depend on the individual with some patients returning to work within two to three days or others taking up to a week to recover. Most people will experience some form of bruising which typically subsides in a few days. There is also likely to be some swelling which tends to dissipates over one to two weeks, relieving your results in the process.
Liposuction can be used to treat health conditions
While liposuction is well known for helping remove excess fat, it is also used to treat certain medical conditions. The cosmetic procedure is showing promising results for treatment of patients with advanced lymphedema. This debilitating condition sees a defect in the lymphatic system which causes the body to swell uncontrollably. Liposuction can also be used to remove benign fatty tumours known as lipomas, and treat gynecomastia which sees the development of fat under a man’s breast.
Reduced fat leads to improved health
Liposuction’s main purpose is to reshape targeted areas of the body. However, some forms of liposuction such as Mega Liposuction, involves removing large volumes of fat which can lead to positive health outcomes. Reducing body fat if overweight or obese can see a reduce risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers and osteoarthritis. It can also see an improvement in quality of life, self-esteem and body image.
