In some cases, no matter how
hard we exercise or how much dieting we do, we still canít seem
to shed those fat deposits on are back, hips, thighs or
abdomens. This is why more and more people are turning to
liposuction to help get rid of that stubborn, excess fat. It is
not intended to be a weight loss procedure but rather a cosmetic
treatment to help people look and feel better about themselves.
Liposuction is a process to remove excess fat deposits that
cause lumps and bulges. A thin suction tube is inserted into
the body through a very small incision. The tube literally
vacuums fat out of the body in the desired areas. Tumescent
liposuction, a relatively new procedure is growing in popularity
as I will explain why in more detail.
The most popular area of the
body that both men and women seek the removing of fat deposits
includes the chin, hips, abdomen, thighs, lower legs and knees.
Men also request treatment on enlarged male breasts because of
the embarrassment they can create. There are many different
forms of liposuction available but one stands out more than the
others. Tumescent liposuction is a procedure that uses natural
saline solution, a diluted local anesthetic as well as
adrenaline. This solution is dispersed into the fat deposit.
The area is locally anesthetized with an injection, therefore, a
general anesthesia is not required. Patient recovery is often
quicker since the patient is awake during the entire procedure.
With tumescent liposuction, a
smaller tube is used to remove the fat which helps reduce the
amount of bleeding and bruising. Most patients are able to
return to their regular routine within a few days but of course,
some require a longer recovery period. The best liposuction
results come with a smaller tube. Although it takes longer to
treat a patient, the smaller vacuum tube leaves smaller and
narrower ridges and that translates into smoother looking skin.
The important thing to do if you are considering this type of
procedure is to speak to your doctor first. Make sure to use a
certified plastic surgeon and always complete your due diligence
before proceeding. The merchants below will have some great
products to help you get rid of those unwanted fat deposits.
