Liposuction in Irvine & Orange County
Regardless of how carefully they eat and how often they exercise, a large percentage of the population find it impossible to get rid of localized deposits of body fat. Many people find they can no longer cope with being overweight, or that it is impacting their health in a negative way so they decide to take action before it’s too late.
What is Liposuction and how does it work?
Liposuction is a fast and highly effective body sculpting procedure that uses suction to remove localized fat. During a liposuction procedure, thin blunt-tipped tubes known as cannula are inserted under the skin via small incisions.
Fat is drained through the cannula as the surgeon moves the tubes to various locations under the skin, precisely targeting areas storing fat deposits.
Is Liposuction painful?
Liposuction is performed under local or general anesthetic, therefore the patient will be either heavily sedated or asleep during the procedure. The downtime following a Liposuction procedure can cause discomfort, but this will generally improve after approximately 5 days. Some swelling is normally present, but provided the appropriate after-care procedures are followed, the pain is significantly reduced.
What are the risks and side effects of Liposuction?
The side effects of Liposuction can vary greatly depending on the approach your surgeon takes. This is why it is imperative to ensure you undergo treatment with a highly experienced and qualified specialist, who has expertise in performing Liposuction. The most common side effects can include:
• Temporary swelling, bruising, soreness, and numbness around the treated areas.
• Some irritation and minor scarring around the insertion points of the cannula
• Sagging skin or rippling. The skin will usually tighten after the first few months.
