Liposuction is the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure in the United States. Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients undergo the surgery to enhance their aesthetic appearance. Many people are unaware as to what specific problems liposuction can treat. First off, liposuction is a body contouring procedure. If your body is poorly shaped, you may consider liposuction. Liposuction specifically targets stubborn fat pockets in localized areas of the body. Aging, poor lifestyle, genetics, and inactivity may lead to the development of stubborn fat pockets in your body like the abdomen, sides, flanks, upper back, thighs, etc. The fat deposits are stubborn because they do not respond to exercise and diet. The fat pockets make your body look bulky and poorly shaped. It affects your overall body outline and definition, making you look aesthetically unappealing. Liposuction involves tiny incisions on the areas where fat is accumulated. A tumescent solution is introduced, and then a hollow tube called a liposuction cannula is inserted into the area. The cannula is moved back and forth to dislodge the fat, which is then removed with a suction pump or special syringe. The incisions are then sutured and closed. As a result, your body becomes contoured and beautifully shaped. The results of the surgery will evolve, and you will notice that your body has become curvaceous, smooth, and aesthetically welcoming. If you desire to have a bigger butt or wider hips, the fat removed via liposuction can be injected into your butt or hips in a procedure called fat transfer. What this means is that liposuction can help you achieve multiple aesthetic goals in one go. Furthermore, if your breasts are overly large primarily due to the accumulation of excess fat and the condition is creating physical and emotional pain for you, liposuction can treat the condition. The procedure will suction out the excess fat from your breasts, thereby reducing your breast size. While the physical benefits of liposuction are noteworthy, it can indirectly help boost your self-esteem. You will feel good and positive about your body image. Furthermore, if a poorly contoured body was affecting your personal and social life, you will notice improvements after liposuction. However, keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is purely a body contouring procedure. It will not help you lose body weight.
