In many cases, despite our best efforts in diet and exercise, we find our body holding onto to bulges and pockets of fat, leaving an appearance much different than we want. Liposuction is an excellent method of reducing pockets of stubborn fat from around the waist, buttocks, thighs, and other areas. Weight loss can decrease the size of fat cells throughout the body, but the cells remain in the body. . By undergoing liposuction in San Diego with Dr. G., the majority of the fat cells in the targeted area are removed, creating improved proportions and contours and a more slender, youthful figure.
Depending upon the areas treated and the size of those areas, liposuction is typically performed using either general or local anesthesia, beginning by injecting the treatment areas with a large volume of tumescent solution to control pain, inhibit bleeding, and saturate the tissue. The introduction of this sterile fluid increases your comfort both during and after the procedure, providing pain relief, as well as reduced bleeding and bruising. To break up and suction the unwanted fat cells out of the body, Dr. G will insert a thin, hollow tube, called a cannula into the designated areas and suction away unwanted fat.
The improvements from liposuction will be immediately noticeable. After the procedure, patients can experience mild to moderate bruising, swelling, and soreness for a few weeks. After surgery you will need to wear a snug fitting garment for up to six weeks.Although you should be able to return to work within just a few days, take care to avoid activities that place strain on the body for at least 2 weeks. Dr. G will guide your recovery to normal activities.Because this procedure is directed at and so effective in specific areas typically resistant to other methods of reduction, high levels of satisfaction are reported by patients, along with improved confidence and self-image.You can maintain your slimmer, sculpted shape for years and years by keeping up your sensible diet and regular exercise routine.
