When diet and exercise aren’t enough to give you the body shape you’re looking for, liposuction may be the right choice. This type of procedure removes pockets of fat from specific areas of the body that remain unaffected by your weight loss methods. Body contouring through liposuction may help to change your body back to how it used to be and give you more confidence about the way you look.

Best Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who are in good physical health and have specific areas of their body that they want to target for excess fat removal. For women, the areas that are most frequently treated by liposuction are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, and beneath the chin. The most commonly treated areas for men are the love handles, abdomen, breasts, neck, and chin area.
What to Expect
Liposuction addresses excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle around the treatment area. During the procedure, a small, stainless steel tube called a cannula is inserted through tiny skin incisions in order to suction the fat from the body. The cannula creates tiny tunnels through which your surgeon will remove the excess fatty tissue. This technique allows your surgeon to precisely and delicately target your areas of concern to achieve a more improved body contour.
Even though the fat cells are removed during your body contouring procedure, you can still gain weight in other areas of the body that your liposuction procedure did not target. Follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain your new look long term.
Your Liposuction Recovery & Results
The final results of your liposuction could take anywhere from about 3 to 6 months to be fully visible, depending on your recovery rate. Some people notice initial results and a slimmer shape shortly after their body contouring procedure, but swelling may camouflage this. Your body will continue to swell after the surgery, which is a normal response, but swelling can be controlled by the regular use of abdominal compression garments to help support and evenly distribute fluid throughout your body.
The swelling should dissipate after a few months or so, but it may take up to 6 months for your healing to be complete. At the 6-month mark, you should know what your final shape will look like.
Even though liposuction addresses excess fatty tissue and helps refine your shape, you can still gain weight in other areas of the body. You can ensure that your results are long-lasting by continuing to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
