If you are looking for a way to transform your body and eliminate stubborn fat for good, there is a procedure that can help you finally reach your body goals, and it’s called liposuction. At North State Plastic Surgery in Chico, CA, we offer this body contouring procedure to help our patients say goodbye to stubborn fat for good.
Do You Stay Awake During Liposuction?
Most liposuction procedures can be performed with local anesthetic or mild sedation, and yes, even while awake. Most patients stay awake throughout the entire procedure. Once we determine the details of your procedure, we can provide you with more details about what your procedure will look like and what you can expect.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the name of a surgical procedure designed to remove excess stubborn fat cells directly from the body. It can re-sculpt and redefine different areas of the body to help men and women achieve their goals. There are pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
If you’ve been frustrated about how your diet and workout routine isn’t making a difference in the appearance of your problem areas, this procedure will. It can do what all of your restrictive diets and intense workouts have been unable to you, and you won’t ever have to deal with that stubborn fat again.
What Can It Treat?
Liposuction can treat any area of the body with excess fat. The most common treatment areas include the calves, ankles, back, arms, neck, thighs, hips, buttocks, love handles, saddlebags, breasts on both men and women, and even the chin. You can treat one or multiple areas during the procedure to help you reach your body goals. Our surgeon can design the right treatment plan for you to help you look and feel your best.
What Happens During the Procedure?
When you arrive for your procedure, you’ll be situated in the treatment room and prepared for the treatment process. Then, our surgeon will administer the necessary anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. Once this takes place, he will create a small incision in your planned treatment area.
Then, that excess fat will be gently suctioned from the body to contour the entire area. Depending on whether you want to treat one or multiple areas, he will complete the procedure according to your treatment plan, and then your procedure will be complete.
Is There Any Downtime?
Once your procedure is over, you will spend a couple of days recovering, and then you’ll be able to go about your normal daily routine. Our surgeon will provide you with detailed information about what you should avoid and how to experience the quickest and healthiest recovery possible.
Lipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure compared to other cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the body, so you can rest assured that you will recover quickly and enjoy your results as soon as possible.
Who Is a Candidate?
For some reason, lipo is typically thought of as a weight-loss procedure, but it’s exactly just the opposite. It is designed for men and women who are at or near their goal weight and can’t achieve their body goals at the gym or by eating a healthier diet.
It is not a weight loss procedure, so patients looking to lose weight through liposuction will not qualify until they are closer to their goal weight. Patients looking to reach their ideal body image make good candidates for this procedure.
Patients Who Can’t Get Results From Their Diet and Fitness Routine
The best candidates for lipo are men and women who are active, eat a healthy diet, and work out regularly but still can’t address their problem areas. This procedure can do what a lifestyle cannot and finally eliminate that stubborn fat. However, it’s important that patients are active and healthy before the procedure because maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to maintaining results long-term.
This procedure will remove stubborn fat from your problem areas, but the remaining fat cells may expand if you gain additional weight after your procedure is over. Maintaining your results is in your hands, and as long as you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, it will be a seamless process.
Patients Who Want To Reduce Fat
This procedure is designed to reduce body fat, not tighten the skin. Patients who have excess skin will see no difference in that skin after the procedure is complete. Skin tightening requires a different series of treatments or procedures, so it’s important that you understand going into this process that lipo will not tighten the skin.
Patients Discouraged by Stubborn Fat
If you’ve been living with pockets of stubborn fat for years that won’t respond to diet and exercise that is affecting your confidence, it’s time to take action and invest in yourself. This procedure is the perfect option for patients who want to improve their body image and gain the confidence that comes with a tighter, more contoured, and defined body.
