Liposuction is actually a very simple concept. It is a technique used to remove the excess fat that can sometimes get deposited between the skin and the muscle. To remove the skin a small tube known as a cannula will be used. One end will be placed in the skin while the other end will be hooked up to a very powerful suction pump.
The suction from the cannula creates tiny little tunnels that create a path for the excess fat to be removed. Once the surgery is complete the tunnels will collapse and the contour of the body will almost immediately improve. If you have small bulges of fat you just can’t seem to get rid of, liposuction Houston may be a good option for you.
The first thing you should do is consult with a surgeon. Many will offer a free consultation where you can come in and discuss things such as the costs, the risks, the benefits and your goals. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. That’s what the surgeon is there for.
If you decide liposuction is something you want the surgeon will tell you how to prepare for the surgery. They may recommend a certain diet as well as restrict certain things. Be sure to let your surgeon know about any allergies you have as well as any medications you are taking. This information is vital. The surgeon needs to know it to ensure you are safe during the surgery.
When looking into liposuction Houston one of the most important factors is of course cost. And while you do want an affordable price, you also want to make sure you are using a really good surgeon. Never choose a liposuction surgeon based on price alone. Doing so could mean you end up with results you are very unhappy with. You will then have to pay even more to have it fixed.
So don’t let price be your deciding factor. The price you end up paying will depend on several different things. The area of the body liposuction will be performed, the size of the patient, how much time the procedure will take, operating room fees and lab fees just to name a few.
Make sure you know exactly how much the procedure will cost before you decide to do it. You also need to factor in any medications you may have to take post surgery. Please know liposuction is not covered by most health insurance plans. Speak with your surgeon to see what options are available.
Anyone wanting to have liposuction should make sure they have realistic expectations. In addition you should also be an average weight, have firm skin, be in good overall health and have pockets of concentrated fat that don’t seem to be responding to diet and exercise.
If you have cellulite you are not a good candidate for liposuction Houston. And while age is not a big factor it is something to consider. Those who are older tend to have less elasticity in their skin. That could mean you won’t get the same results as someone who has tighter skin. Again, not a big deal but something you should keep in mind.
Every surgery, no matter how minor it is, has risks. Liposuction is no different. However, the good news is liposuction has a very good safety record. When done by a board certified plastic surgeon who has been specially trained the risks are minimal. Some of the risk associated with this procedure include skin discoloration and infection. Both are very rare.
Your recovery time will depend on the type of liposuction procedure you are having. If it is an outpatient procedure recovery time is usually pretty quick. The average person is able to return to work in less than a week. Expect swelling, soreness and bruising for a few weeks after surgery. To control swelling your surgeon may require you wear a compressive garment for up to two months. Every person is different and will therefore have a different period of recovery.
