There are a variety of different liposuction techniques that can be appropriated to help patients remove excess fat from their bodies. Two of the main ones include:
-Tumescent liposuction: With this technique, the doctor injects a solution into the patient’s fatty areas prior to removing the fat. The solution is made of saline as well as a mild painkiller. Finally, the solution includes epinephrine, a drug which contracts the blood vessels. In addition to making the process of fat removal notably easier, the saline provides pain relief before and after surgery while also reducing blood loss.
-Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: During this type of liposuction, ultrasonic energy is appropriated to liquefy the patient’s fat, after which point it is removed from his or her body.
Who Is A Candidate For This Procedure?
The ideal candidate for liposuction is within 30% of their appropriate weight and has good muscle tone. Additionally, individuals who wish to have this procedure performed should have no serious medical conditions or life-threatening illnesses that could complicate the healing process. Candidates should also be non-smokers and have very specific objectives regarding what they want the body contouring process to accomplish. Many people out there, are not happy with their body the way it is. For the perfect body, many will exercise, diet, even deprive themselves of their favorite foods. Some also get a personal trainer, and do anything under the sun, to lose weight. Many people don’t want to do the hard work that it takes to achieve the perfect body, in this case, liposuction could be the key.
If you’re looking into liposuction, here is some crucial information you will want to know. Liposuction, consists of having Dr Hricko make an incision, in your body, insert a suction, and suck the fat out of your body. Liposuction can be done anywhere on the body. Common areas are the chin, cheeks, chest, legs, arms, buttocks, and stomach. Anywhere on the body with excessive fat deposits can have liposuction performed.
Liposuction is not perfect, so it cannot collect all the fat in your body, but it can dramatically increase the results desired for weight loss. This is not a, “get thin quick”, scheme, it’s more like a jump start to weight loss. If you choose this surgery, then be prepared for everything that comes with it. You must do a consultation with a doctor in order to know if you’re eligible for this type of surgery.
If you have pre-existing heart condition, then this surgery is not for you. Not every health problem means you’re not a candidate for liposuction, but certain conditions will not allow surgeons to operate on you. You must be in good overall health; extra weight aside, in order to do this procedure.
Dr Hricko will advise you on what your options are, as well as letting you know that realistically, it’s unlikely that you are to lose more than a few pounds with this procedure. Many will get liposuction, expecting to be completely thin afterwards, and this is just not reality. If you’re looking to shape up and get rid of small pockets of extra fat, then liposuction is a good choice.
Since surgery requires anesthesia and cutting will be involved, please know that you will have some pain afterwards, as well as some grogginess. You will also need recovery time; even if it is just a small incision. Dr Hricko will recommend how much time to rest and heal, as well as give you the prescriptions needed, to help with the pain. Dr Hricko will also tell you to limit your physical activity, while healing from this surgery.
