Liposuction in Depth
Doctors perform liposuction over 500,000 times a year, making it the most common cosmetic surgery by far. Liposuction is a procedure in which fat from under the skin is broken up and removed from the body via a vacuum suction and a thin tube known as a cannula. The most common places the procedure is performed is on the buttocks, stomach, arms, thighs, back and face. Certain areas are targeted in order to effectively “shape up” the body part/s of the patient and therefore lowering their body fat percentage.
Doctors do not recommend that people with heart disease, diabetes, or a weak immune system undergo liposuction. Many people seem to think that lipo simply consists of extracting the fat. However, it can take more than that to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Our Liposuction Approach and Recovery
One of our techniques we perform here at Georgia Center for Female Health is known as tumescent liposuction, which involves the injection of saline and epinephrine around the selected area. This amazing approach is virtually painless and patients almost always go home the same day. The average person can expect 2 weeks to make a full recovery. Antibiotics may be prescribed and a compression garment may be recommended to keep down any possible swelling.
