Most of us have stubborn pockets of fat in specific parts of the body, such as the tummy, arms, buttocks, back, chest, or other regions. These stubborn fat pockets can’t be removed through traditional weight loss methods, such as exercise and dieting. However, liposuction allows you to remove extremely targeted pockets of fat from your body, thus achieving your desired proportions. Revel You performs advanced tumescent and power-assisted liposuction to ensure optimal results with minimal downtime.
You’re a suitable candidate for liposuction if you…
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
- Have realistic expectations from the liposuction.
- Are within 30% of your ideal weight.
- Have skin with suitable elasticity and firmness.
- Have excess fat deposits that resist all natural means of reduction.
Please note that liposuction isn’t a substitute for a proper diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery. If you’re close to your ideal weight, liposuction can remove stubborn pockets of fat from targeted areas and bring you closer to your goals. However, this isn’t suitable for patients who are overweight or obese. Furthermore, liposuction doesn’t treat cellulite the dimpled skin on the thighs and buttocks.
Dr. Chaowen Wu will carefully examine your skin and targeted areas, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to ensure you’re the right candidate for liposuction.
What is the post-liposuction recovery like?
After the procedure the treated areas will be wrapped in elastic bandages or compression garments to reduce swelling. This will also compress your skin into its new contours, thus ensuring optimal results. You can reduce post-treatment discomfort with oral medications. You’ll be asked to take 1 to 2 weeks off work to recover completely.
