If you want a way to permanently remove fat without having to work out for hours a day or eat next to nothing, there is a solution. You can achieve the body of your dreams through a simple procedure, a procedure that has helped millions of individuals contour their bodies and finally get rid of their stubborn pockets of fat. At My Cosmetic Clinic, located in Crow’s Nest and Newcastle, NSW, we offer liposuction so that you can finally reach your ideal body goals.
Does Liposuction Permanently Remove Fat?
Liposuction is a way to permanently remove the pre-existing fat in the chosen treatment area, at the time of treatment. It does not affect or prevent the development of new fat cells that form due to weight gain, but it will permanently remove the fat in the areas treated. After your procedure, you will finally be free from those pockets of stubborn fat that have stood between you and your goals.
The Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle
Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It is not a free pass for unhealthy living. Once you undergo this procedure, you need to continue with your healthy lifestyle habits so that you can maintain your results.
Eating a healthy diet and maintaining a regular, daily exercise routine is the best way to ensure that you do not gain weight, which will result in new fat cells and can destroy your results. We can help you reach your body goals, but you are responsible for maintaining them.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure that involves the removal of fat through a small tube called a cannula that attaches to a suctioning device as a way to suction fat from the body. This procedure not only removes stubborn fat cells permanently but it contours the body and helps patients reach the goals they may have thought were not within their reach.
What Happens During Treatment?
After the sedation process takes place, the procedure begins with small surgical incisions to create space for the cannula, a very thin tube that is inserted into the area of treatment to remove the fat cells. A vacuum-like device attaches to the cannula to gently suction the fat through the cannula, out of the body. Once the chosen area is treated, the incisions are closed and the procedure is complete.
How Long Does It Take?
This procedure typically takes one to three hours. The total treatment time varies based on the area being treated and how much fat removal is necessary.
Is It Painful?
During the procedure, your treatment area will be completely numbed. This numbness typically lasts for 12 hours, which helps maintain optimal comfort both during and after the procedure. You will receive local anesthesia and twilight sedation during your procedure, so you will not feel any pain, and you will be able to have minimal recovery time post-procedure. You can rest assured that we will do everything possible to keep you comfortable during and after the procedure.
What Are the Aftercare Instructions?
While you will be able to get up and walk immediately following your procedure, you will need someone who can drive you home since you will have been under the influence of medication and will not be able to drive home safely on your own. You should also enlist help around the house for the first few days so that you can recover adequately.
After three or four days of rest, if you are feeling up to it, you may return to work. You also will need to wear a compression garment for anywhere from three to six weeks. Doing so will speed your recovery and reduce the total amount of swelling and bruising that occurs. Wearing this garment consistently is an important step in your recovery because it will help your skin contract so that it adjusts to your new and improved, contoured body shape.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are in good health and are at or near your goal weight but are plagued by areas with stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and fitness efforts, you are most likely a candidate for liposuction. While patients of all ages undergo this procedure with success, younger patients make the best candidates since they have more skin elasticity and the skin can more easily contract around the new, contoured body shape.
During your initial consultation, we will analyze your problem areas and review your health history to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. We will also provide you with the best plan of action so that you can get the results that you are hoping for.
