The Battle of the Bulge Has Never Been Easier With The Help of Today's Liposuction. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet, exercise and try to sweat off the pounds, you just can't budge that stubborn fat. It may appear in your abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, calves, ankles, and breasts or even under your chin. It is unsightly and may make you feel sad and ugly.
But you don't need to suffer any longer. Liposuction at Midas Touch is a safe and effective way to eliminate the fat from all these areas. It employs a suction technique to remove fat and contour the specific area. The good news is that these contour changes will be permanent as long you maintain your weight.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before your liposuction procedure you will be given either a local or general anesthetic depending upon how much fat will be removed. There are three different types of liposuction. • Tumescent liposuction. This is the most common type of liposuction, and is where the surgeon injects a solution to loosen the fat to make it easier to remove. Small incisions are made, and a thin tube is inserted under the skin. The tube is connected to a vacuum that suctions out the fat.
• Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL). During this procedure, the surgeon inserts a metal rod that emits ultrasonic energy under the skin. The fat cells are liquefied for easy removal with the tube and vacuum used in tumescent liposuction (above). • Powered liposuction.Â This is where the tube is moved back and forth in a rapid motion to break up the fat and pull it out more easily. The surgeon can remove fat more precisely with this technique. It is helpful when treating smaller areas, such as in the arms, knees or ankles.
You should expect some pain, bruising and swelling afterwards. Your surgeon may prescribe pain medication to provide you relief, and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. You also may need to wear elastic compression garments for a few weeks to help reduce any swelling. You should also expect some contour irregularities as everything settles. The swelling should subside within about four weeks, and you will have a leaner appearance.
Liposuction results last as long as you maintain your weight. You will feel slimmer, trimmer and more attractive! Why suffer with ugly, stubborn body fat when you can have it safely removed with liposuction.
