Stephen Kay, MD, FACS of Washington, DC reviews the benefits of Liposuction
If you are doing a regular exercise program and eating a well-balanced healthy diet, but still have some fat deposits in certain areas like your abdomen, love handles, inner or outer thighs, chin, neck or chest then liposuction is a great way to take care of these targeted areas.
Liposuction offers these advantages over other techniques:
• Improve your overall body contour with an artistic approach in a single treatment session
• Create a more natural result that will make you look and feel better
• Has a relatively easy recovery
• Create results that are long lasting
After your liposuction procedure, you will wear a compression garment that will help decrease your swelling. We provide a safe and effective homeopathic regimen to further minimize bruising and swelling. Generally, a series of comfortable garments are worn over the treated areas for 3-4 weeks. In less than week, most resume work and non-strenuous physical activity. As the swelling resolves and skin tightens, the new contour becomes apparent and clothing fit improves.
Liposuction is no substitute for a weight loss program, but is great for individuals who are near their ideal body weight. Excess fat removed during liposuction will not return. But since weight gain can result in fat deposits in other areas, maintaining a healthy life style is important. At Kay Plastic Surgery, we provide the guidance on healthy diet and exercise so beautiful results will be long term.
