Decide if a liposuction is right for you by viewing LocateADoc.com’s sortable liposuction before and after pictures. Liposuction was the third most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States in 2011. This procedure is considered invasive, that is why it is important to find a skilled surgeon whose results you can trust.
Also called lipoplasty, liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from many parts of the body—usually from hard-to-target areas such as the midsection, thighs, and buttocks. Good candidates for liposuction are in generally good health and have already engaged in exercising and dieting in an attempt to lose weight. Liposuction is not an alternative to a healthy lifestyle, rather it is used to remove fat from resistant areas.
Depending on the extent of the surgery, recovery time can last anywhere from a few weeks to over a month. The greatest side effects of liposuction are swelling and discoloration, both of which should be fully cleared within six months.
Since liposuction is defined as an invasive procedure, you should do some research before making any decisions. Lucky for you, all the resources you need are right here on LocateADoc.com.
