Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that should always be carried out by a qualified, expert surgeon. It is a process that removes excess fat from the body to achieve instant results that would otherwise require months of dieting and exercise. It can be carried out effectively on the hips, thighs, stomach, arms and buttocks, with the possibility to work on other areas thanks to the development of new techniques.
Who can get liposuction?
Not all people are good candidates for liposuction. Some people can develop cellulite in unusual areas after the procedure, and there can be other side effects associated with it. When you attend your initial consultation with a therapist, there will be a checklist of criteria you must meet before the surgery can be carried out. Good elasticity in the skin is important. Furthermore, liposuction can only help people who have up to a 30% deviation from normal BMI, and anyone who has a history of cardiovascular illness or hypertension must disclose that information during their initial consultation.
Where should I go for liposuction?
At Sunface Medical Center, liposuction is carried out at the clinic. When you are exploring options for your procedure, you should be looking for a clinic with state-of-the-art facilities that are certified and approved by the relevant government authorities. Undergoing a procedure with an unlicensed or inexperienced clinic can be extremely dangerous.
Additionally, keep the following considerations in mind:
- It is normal for a surgeon to photograph the area that is to be treated for use in comparisons. Look for before & after photos at the clinic.
- You are likely to undergo anaesthesia for the procedure – sometimes local, sometimes general, it depends on your personal requirements.
- An overnight stay may be necessary as you recover from surgery.
