There’s no place like home for the holidays, especially if you’ve got a trim, new figure to show off to your family, and friends.
To improve your body’s shape, consider liposuction, one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery in Arizona. It’s a safe and effective way to remove unwanted fat in various parts of your body. However, it’s not weight-loss surgery. Liposuction should be utilized only as a method to sculpt areas of your body where the fat doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.
If you have always had problem areas that prevent you from getting the definition and shape you want, try SLIM Lipo. Unlike traditional liposuction that uses mechanical force to break down fat before the suction procedure, utilizes a Diode Laser that specifically targets the fat cells only, leaving blood vessels, nerves, and fibrous connections between the skin and the muscle fascia unharmed. This allows less pain, and bruising, and excellent skin retraction! In addition, the procedure is so gentle, it can be done under local anesthesia with mild sedation. Most patients can continue their normal activities the next day!
Common areas that men and women have treated are the hips, upper arms, buttock, thighs, inner knees, chin, back and breasts. Patients receive either general anesthesia or a local anesthetic, depending on the location being treated. An incision is made near the problem area and tumescent fluid is injected. The fluid contains an anesthetic and medication to reduce bruising. A cannula, or small tube, actually suctions the fat from your body.
After the procedure, you’ll have to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks. If you received sutures, they’ll be removed five-to-ten days after surgery.
If you want to have liposuction in time for holiday parties and gatherings, you need to act fast and schedule the surgery as soon as possible. That’s because it takes about six weeks after the procedure for the final result to be seen.
While liposuction is routinely performed, it’s not for everyone. Certain health and other conditions might prevent you from being a candidate for the procedure. For example, if you’re overweight or have a hernia, liposuction might not be for you.
If surgery isn’t an option for you and you still want fat reduction, look into Liposonix. This uses focused ultrasound waves to non-surgically, gets rid of fat cells selectively in your problem areas. LipoSonix gets rid of these fat cells without surgery and with minimal side effects or downtime.
If cellulite is your concern, try Cellfina Cellulite Treatment. The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for up to three years (if not forever). With Cellfina, patients can be treated for their cellulite and get quick improvement that lasts.
