Liposuction has become one of the most common plastic surgeries, along with breast augmentation, due to the extraordinary results patients achieve with this surgical procedure in a short period of time. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that eliminates fat clusters in localized areas. The procedure is applied by aspirating the fat through a cannula connected to a vacuum machine. The versatility of this procedure allows it to be done in most body areas where the excess of fat is evident.
Among these areas, the most common are abdomen, hips and thighs, but it is also possible in jowls, arms, etc. The procedure, which requires an operating room with maximum guarantees and standards like the facilities of My Cosmetic Surgery in Miami, usually lasts between one and two hours depending on the body area and the amount of grease to be removed. You may require admission according to the plastic surgeon's criteria. It is important to realize that Liposuction is not a method of weight loss or a technique to improve cellulite. The patient must have a good health overall, and a normal weight with areas of localized fat. Also, the patient should have a healthy, firm and elastic skin, and real expectations.
Although the risks of Liposuction are in any case limited, it is essential for the procedure to be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with a high level of expertise like the specialists of My Cosmetic Surgery in Miami. After the procedure, a custom-made press therapy garment (girdle) is usually placed and must be worn for a month (according to the plastic surgeon's criteria). You may return to work after a couple of days but intense activities are not recommended within the first month.
