After changing your diet and starting to exercise, it can be heartbreaking to realize that your cosmetic goals might take years to accomplish. This is because your body will do everything it can to retain fat as an emergency source of energy.
At eSSe Plastic Surgery, our team is ready to help patients eradicate these stubborn layers of fat with popular procedures, such as liposuction. With a single call to our office, you will take that first step toward the slim and toned body of your dreams.
Getting Ready for Your Consultation
Before heading to your initial consultation, you should take some time to learn about how liposuction works. The premise of this procedure is actually quite simple. A small device is used to extract subcutaneous fat from your body. While most liposuction procedures remove fat from areas such as the stomach and waist, this procedure can be performed practically anywhere on the body. This includes the upper arms, upper legs, buttocks, back, sides and neck.
During the consultation, our surgeon will need to know about any medical conditions or medications you are taking that could affect the procedure. This is why you should collect all of the information you can on past procedures, recent medical diagnoses and any medications or supplements you are taking.
The Perfect Liposuction Candidate
Liposuction is both safe and effective, but this type of procedure is not right for everyone. Patients who are considering this surgery should have realistic expectations. Without comprehensive lifestyle changes, you could gain the weight back within months. This is why we suggest that a patient should make progress toward their ideal weight before having the procedure carried out. This surgery will help you finally get past those last few hurdles that stand between you and your cosmetic goals.
Preparing for Liposuction
Our surgeon will give you a list of instructions on how you can prepare for your liposuction during your first consultation, but there are some changes you can start making today. Patients should try to remain as healthy as possible in the weeks leading up to their surgery. This includes staying hydrated, eating well and getting at least eight hours of sleep every night.
What to Expect
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure carried out under either general or local anesthesia. The surgery itself can often be carried out in just two hours as long as no other procedures are needed. Most patients return back to work within two weeks and can begin exercising within five weeks.
During a consultation at eSSe Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, our team of cosmetic professionals will give you all the details about what you can expect before, during and after a liposuction procedure. Contact us today to schedule your appointment to learn more.
