Liposuction Orange County
If you have excess fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of even with a good diet and exercise regimen, liposuction may be the exact solution you need. Simply put, liposuction is a procedure where extra fat is removed from your body so that you can have a slimmer, more contoured figure. At Smart Dimensions Weight Loss, we can provide you with amazing liposuction results.
Why Do We Find It Difficult to Lose Weight?
When you gain weight the fat cells in the body increase in both volume and size. The more lipids we store in our fat cells, the larger they become.
When your body uses this fat as energy, only a certain portion of the fat cells is used up. But the remaining portion of your fat cells stay as they are. They shrink in size and don’t disappear. In particular, if your fat cells have a higher number of alpha-2 receptors, compared to beta-2 receptors, they become harder to eliminate. This is why they’re called stubborn fat.
Liposuction removes a large number of stubborn fat cells from each area. The amount of fat that will be removed will depend on the volume of fat present in that particular area. In most cases, the post-surgical results are long-lasting if you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. However, it is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
This treatment plan is very popular for removing fat from areas like:
- Inner Thighs
- Outer Thighs
- Upper Arms
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
A good liposuction candidate is an adult who is within 30 percent of their ideal weight. You should also have good skin elasticity and a considerably good muscle tone. If you have an underlying medical condition, your chances of being an ideal candidate for liposuction may be affected as well.
It should be noted that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It isn’t a treatment for people who are overweight or obese. It is simply a procedure for removing excess or unwanted fat and skin tissue so that you can achieve a more toned and contoured body figure.
Preparing for Your Consultation
In particular, liposuction can help you remove unwanted fat from certain areas of the body that do not respond or react well to exercises and weight loss diets. These areas can be stubborn and tricky to treat as most of the exercises for these regions can be ineffective for a variety of reasons.
During his consult, your surgeon identifies the areas that require liposuction and the areas that don’t. Then, we will provide a list of pre-surgical Do’s and Don’ts which you need to follow when coming in for the surgery.
What is the Procedure Like?
If you undergo liposuction, you will be administered anesthesia. Then, small incisions are made in the target area, from where the excess fat will be removed. A thin, hollow tube is inserted through these tiny incisions, and the excess fat is loosened using a back and forth motion. As a result, the fat is dislodged, making it easier for the surgeon to remove it using a surgical vacuum. The incisions are then stitched together.
Swelling, redness, and some pain and discomfort are to be expected after the procedure. There is no need to be alarmed if you experience these for a few days post-procedure. Depending on which area of your body the surgery was performed on, as well as other individual factors, the recovery period may differ. Once the swelling subsides, you can see the changes in your body.
