Liposuction techniques have advanced a lot over the years. It is nice to see how technology has made liposuction safer and how it has made the end results of liposuction better. More and more people have been able to get the contoured body they want, and this has resulted in them feeling more confident about who they are and having a more positive outlook for the future. One of the more popular forms of this procedure is tumescent liposuction.
During a tumescent liposuction procedure, either laser or ultrasonic energy is used to break up the fat cell membranes, causing them to expel lipid contents. Next, the melted fat is skillfully removed via a small cannula. Since the fat is liquefied prior to removal, the procedure is overall less invasive than traditional liposuction. There is less discomfort involved, and the recovery time is shortened.
Since tumescent liposuction is minimally-invasive, more sensitive areas may be treated, such as the arms and neck. This procedure offers much more even and reliable results than traditional liposuction. As such, more and more people are opting to have it done.
It is important to understand that tumescent liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is designed for people who are at or very close to their goal weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise alone.
