There has been a drastic outburst in the number of people who undergo plastic surgery in the United States and other parts of the world recently. Everybody is obsessed with maintaining a healthy look which is not such a bad idea. Looking good and healthy carries the weight as it makes people feel satisfied. The more satisfied people are with their look, the more confident they are. And this way, their mental health which is critical to their performance is boosted.
IAPS (Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) recently conducted a research regarding the total number of people who annually get plastic surgery in the U.S alone and came up with an estimated figure of over one million of the entire population. Those are people of different age levels and social status. Considering that figure, different programs are put in place to ensure efficiency of treatment and safety of patients. In light of that advanced treatment such as liposuction, usually pronounced lipo, have been been developed for safety and efficiency.
What is Liposuction?
It is performed by using cannula to suck out body fat. Commonly pronounced by patients as lipo, liposuction is an aesthetic plastic procedure which is employed by doctors to remove excess fat from a patient’s body in a bid and quest to reshape the body for good, thus enhancing body aesthetics. In addition lipo comes in handy for maintaining healthy body through the removal of excess fat which is a risk factor for several health conditions such as obesity, clotting that results in heart problems, PAD (Peripheral artery disease) and more. For the most part, it is performed on areas such as thighs, buttocks, upper arms and abdomens to reduce skin flaps in those areas resulting from excess fat.
As an advanced body sculpting technique, it poses less implications as far as a patient follows post surgery practice recommended by their doctor. All things being equal, patients would recover within two to seven days after surgery and return to work. However, in some severe cases involving skin lumpiness, the extent of treatment might be a little high resulting in increased downtime. Be it what case, a patient should fully recover in not more than one month if the procedure has been performed by a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon.
One Food for thought for People considering Lipo
The lipo cosmetic procedure could be the things standing in your way while trying to get that aesthetic healthy body but you have to play your game a bit longer when choosing your lipo doctor- a decision on which your treatment results, downtime and implications depend on. Choose a doctor who is known have high success rate. Discuss your with them beforehand and make sure that it is not compromised.
