If you have reached your goal weight but have pockets of stubborn fat keeping you from looking and feeling your best, you aren’t alone. Even some of the fittest individuals struggle with stubborn fat. If your diet and exercise routine just isn’t cutting it, we want to introduce you to a procedure that will. At Christopher Tiner MD Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA, we offer liposuction, the ultimate body contouring procedure that will help you achieve permanent fat loss.
How Effective Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the most effective body contouring procedure because it removes stubborn fat directly from the body. Unlike many other body contouring treatments that rely on the body to eliminate fat cells gradually after the treatment is over, this one works right away.
As soon as the procedure is over, the fat cells in your problem area will be gone and can never come back. You won’t regrow new cells but, instead, will be able to enjoy all the benefits that come from a procedure designed to deliver permanent results.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also referred to as lipo, is a procedure that removes stubborn fat from the body. It can be performed in many different problem areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, sides, arms, and legs, among other areas. Your surgeon will insert a cannula into a small incision in the planned treatment area during the procedure.
Then, a suctioning device will be used to gently remove the stubborn fat cells from the body. There are many different surgical techniques that make this procedure gentle yet effective. When you schedule liposuction at our office, you can trust that Dr. Tiner will work with precision and accuracy to help contour your problem areas and help you achieve the best results.
Can I Treat Multiple Areas?
Liposuction is a versatile body contouring procedure that can remove stubborn fat cells from virtually anywhere on the body. It is possible to treat multiple areas during your procedure. An initial consultation with Dr. Tiner will give you a better idea of what your unique treatment plan will look like.
When you schedule this procedure, you will have a chance to discuss all of your problem areas in person so that Dr. Tiner can evaluate them and make recommendations as to how you can achieve all of your body goals in the shortest amount of time.
Is There Downtime?
This procedure is very effective, but you will have to plan around downtime. Most patients spend the first few days post-op resting and relaxing and typically resume their normal daily activities several days later. Dr. Tiner will provide you with post-op instructions you must follow so that you can heal as quickly as possible and enjoy your new body contours.
You may be provided with a compression garment to wear after your procedure is complete to help your body mold to the new contours and heal as quickly as possible.
Focusing on a Healthy Recovery
Additionally, you must eat a healthy diet and focus on resting so that your body can heal. Having someone who can help around the house for the first few days after your procedure can make your recovery easier. You’ll need help with housework, meal preparation, and daily household duties so that you can spend time relaxing, not overexerting yourself.
What Are the Benefits?
Patients love lipo because it is a procedure that has many benefits. It does require a short period of downtime, but after you have recovered, you’ll be able to enjoy permanent fat loss. You won’t have to wait for your body to gradually eliminate dead fat cells like many body contouring treatments that use radiofrequency energy or cold temperatures to kill fat cells. Instead, as soon as your procedure is complete, you’ll be rid of those stubborn fat cells forever.
It Can Be Combined With Other Procedures
Lipo is a versatile procedure that can be combined with many other cosmetic surgeries. It can be added to a tummy tuck, arm lift, and other procedures designed to improve the appearance and body proportions. It’s a gentle procedure that effectively removes body fat and delivers immediate results.
It Will Give You a Confidence Boost
Even when you spend time eating a healthy diet and toning your entire body, you can still be left with those pockets of fat that just won’t go away no matter what you do. It’s exhausting to add extra workouts to your weekly routine, and when combined with a restrictive diet, it can be hard to make it through the day for the lack of energy. However, this procedure can do what your diet and fitness routine cannot.
You’ll be able to live a healthy lifestyle defined by moderation, not limitation. You can work out to keep your body healthy, not to try to meet an impossible fat loss goal. And, you’ll look the best that you’ve ever looked.
It Helps You Reach Your Body Goals
Lipo can help you reach your body goals quickly, and you will no longer have to deal with that stubborn fat that’s making you feel less confident about your appearance. Your clothes will fit better, you’ll feel better about how you look in the mirror, and when it comes time to put on a swimsuit, you’ll have a whole new sense of confidence.
Am I a Candidate?
If you have areas with stubborn fat, you may qualify as a good candidate for liposuction. However, there are some qualifications you must meet to be eligible for this procedure.
You Are in Good Health
One of the most important prerequisites for any surgical procedure is that you are in good health. If you are a healthy adult free of any conditions that this surgical procedure could exacerbate and not a smoker, you may be a good candidate. During your consultation with Dr. Tiner, he will review your medical background to ensure that this procedure is a safe choice for you.
You Are Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle
This procedure can deliver permanent results, but the keyword here is can. You must do your part and eat a healthy diet, exercise consistently, and make healthy lifestyle choices to avoid weight gain. Weight gain will negatively affect your results.
Even though you can’t regrow fat cells in your treatment area, the ones that are left post-procedure can expand if you gain weight. Weight gain will affect your new body contours, so you must commit to living a healthy lifestyle because it’s required to maintain permanent results.
Your Diet and Fitness Routine Aren’t Delivering Results
Contrary to popular opinion, liposuction is a procedure designed to improve the body contours of healthy individuals who are active and at or near their goal weight. There’s a difference between excess body fat and stubborn fat.
Those who are obese will not qualify for this procedure. It isn’t a weight-loss procedure, and it can’t help overweight individuals lose a significant amount of weight. However, once you complete your weight loss journey, you can use this procedure to fine-tune your body and accomplish new goals.
