Recent Weight Gain? Liposuction Can Help
Let's face it, many of us have not been very diligent recently about watching our diet and getting in enough exercise and have gained a bit of weight during the COVID-19 pandemic....the so called "COVID-15". Even with the best health and a religious exercise regimen, some individuals can still suffer with disproportionate body contours due to localized fat deposits. Liposuction can slim or reshape specific areas of the body by removing localized or regional excess fat deposits. Although liposuction is not a substitute for eating well and exercising routinely, it can help by getting rid of that stubborn adipose tissue or "fat" that won't seem to go away no matter what you do.
Liposuction involves the surgical removal of localized excess fatty tissue. Dr. Grasee and Dr. Bergman perform tumescent liposuction which is injecting the area with a saline solution before removing the fat and they perform UAL, or ultrasound assisted liposuction, which consists of liquefying the fat with energy from ultrasonic waves before suctioning the area. Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas at the same time or in combination with another procedure. Indeed, almost any area of the body may be amenable to liposuction. Some common areas people choose to have liposction include: chin, neck, chest, back, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs and calves.
After surgery, compression garments are used to decrease swelling. Initial healing will include swelling, numbness, soreness, bruising, and discomfort that can be controlled by medication. It may take several months for swelling to fully subside. Following surgery, you can expect new contours and an enhanced self-image.
