Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a procedure that can help contour your body by removing unwanted fat and inches from certain parts of the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps selected patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in your body only shrink – they do not disappear. Liposuction surgery actually removes the fat cells from your body.
At Aestheticon we utilize a combination of tumescent liposuction and if necessary external ultrasound or radiofrequency. When used together, these methods provide the patient with a smoother contour and a quick recovery, with minimal pain or bruising. There will be a noticeable difference in your body contour almost immediately after liposuction surgery and a small amount of swelling that will continue to subside for a few weeks after. Your new contour will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after your liposuction surgery, the weight will distribute itself evenly throughout your body and will not settle in the same problem areas.
