Even after having a healthy lifestyle, having a disproportionate body contour or persistent fatty deposits can be pretty disheartening. Sometimes no amount of working out or dieting can help with them. In such a case, you should opt for Liposuction Miami. It is an effective procedure that helps to remove or reduce love handles, saddlebags, a double chin, abdomen fat or bulges, or any kind of unsightly fatty deposit to give you a better shape and create a more beautiful body.

Before you read about liposuction, it is essential to keep in mind that this procedure is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss procedure or a treatment for obesity. On the contrary, this procedure is best suited for those who can maintain a stable weight and remove stubborn pockets of fat from the targeted area.

What are the techniques used in the procedure?

There are three standard methods of liposuction. All these three methods detach and isolate the fat for removal. After the fat has been dislodged, the surgeon then makes a very small incision in the skin. From this incision, very small tubes or cannulas are inserted—following which the fat is removed through the cannulas. Once the fat has been eliminated, the incisions are closed and dressed to prevent bleeding, reduce swelling and support the affected area. Following are the three most common methods used in the liposuction procedure:

  1. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: In this method, ultrasonic energy is used to dislodge and liquefy the fat.
  2. Laser-assisted liposuction: this method uses the energy from the laser to dislodge the fat, following which it is removed through a small cannula.
  3. Tumescent liposuction: A diluted amount of anesthetic is injected into the subcutaneous fat tissues of the body, which contracts the capillaries. This helps to decrease the bleeding and hardens the fat. Once the fat has been hardened, it becomes easier to remove.

Who qualifies as a candidate for the procedure?

Not everyone is the ideal candidate for the procedure of liposuction. Before you book your appointment with the surgeon, make sure that you meet at least one of the criteria for the procedure. Whenever you plan to undergo liposuction, you should be close to or at your targeted weight and still have stubborn pockets of fat deposits. To undergo the procedure, you shouldn’t have any co-morbidities or any other factors which can cause complications post-surgery. You should not smoke and be committed to having a healthy lifestyle.

You should have good skin elasticity. But if you don’t, then you might be left behind with some sagging skin after the surgery. The surgeon will discuss your skin elasticity with you before the procedure. Suppose you are older or have less pliable skin. In that case, the surgeon will recommend other procedures that you can undergo to ensure that you make the best out of your liposuction. Liposuction can easily be paired with additional procedures like lift or contouring.
