Liposuction: A Complete Overview

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, is a relatively safe and simple procedure that can help reshape and slim areas of unwanted fat deposits. There are many different areas that can benefit from this type of surgical procedure including:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Upper Arms
  • Chin
  • Neck

Modern technology has not only improved the results from liposuction, but minimized the recovery period. There are a wide variety of techniques available to those who are considering surgery. These techniques include tumescent liposuction, SmartLipo, and ultrasonic lipoplasty. Each procedure delivers improved body contours and proportions.

There are many reasons as to why liposuction may be considered. Certain weight loss methods such as dieting and routine exercise may prove unsuccessful. An individual may tone up the rest of their body through a specific fitness regimen only to find out that the fat deposits still exists. Usually, a genetic pre- disposition is at fault.

Liposuction is a surgical technique that sculpts the body’s contour by removing excess and unwanted fat from deposits that are located between the muscle and skin. This is done by using a small, stainless steel tube known as a cannula. The cannula is connected to a liposuction machine that suctions fat from small, incisions in the skin. These incisions are hidden in inconspicuous areas such as the bellybutton or groin and are about 5 mm in length.

While liposuction has truly evolved over time, many patients wonder whether or not this specific procedure is safe. There are a lot of factors that determine the safety and success of liposuction surgery. Perhaps the biggest factor is being open and honest about your past and present medical history, list of medications, and lifestyle habits. This helps the doctor determine whether or not a patient is considered a good candidate. Other determining factors include:

  • The skill and training of the surgical staff
  • The skill and training of the surgeon
  • The skill and training of the recovery staff
  • Your willingness to follow proper instructions and post-operative protocol

Liposuction is not a solution for everyone. It is not considered an option for those who are considered obese and suffer from certain medical conditions. Only you and your doctor can determine whether or not liposuction is right for you. Once you have scheduled a consultation, your doctor will discuss the procedure, techniques available, and recovery details before proceeding. Feel free to ask your doctor any questions or concerns you may have or if you’re looking for smartlipo atlanta ga promotions.

Lose Fat With Coolsculpting Atlanta

Why do you want to keep working harder instead of just working smarter? Proper diet and exercise is absolutely critical to your overall health and having the body that you want. However, when you have those stubborn areas and you go in with the Coolsculpting treatment and do a few procedures, you can truly transform your body and close that gap between the body that you have and the body that you want. I love Coolsculpting and I’m a huge proponent. As I said, when it’s paired with proper diet and exercise, you can truly have jaw-dropping transformative results.

Coolsculpting Consultation

The reason that it’s really important that you come in for a complimentary consultation is that every single body is different. People call all the time and ask if they can schedule a treatment. However, the truth is, your body and how your fat sits on your body might be very different than the next person. With Slimplasty: Coolsculpting Atlanta, they’re committed to the best and most beautiful results. So when you come in for a complimentary consultation, we talk about the procedure, we talk about what you can expect, and we also assess your body and really vent out what you’re frustrated with. We want to know what type of results you’re looking to achieve so we can build the best and most effective treatment plan so you can step into that body that you want.

Does it matter where you get your treatment from?

The sad thing is it’s not the same everywhere you go. You can go to a variety of places (especially in Atlanta) to get Coolsculpting done but the truth is, we believe that results matter. We also believe that when you’re doing a procedure that is permanently going to remove 20-30% of fat cells in the treated area, you want to make sure that you’re not going to some place that’s going to mess it up. There’s so many spas in Atlanta and what they do is they have a lot of technicians and they have a lot of different treatments and procedures. While this might seem like a good idea, what happens is those technicians are required to know the nuances of every single different procedure and they bounce from room to room doing different procedures all day long every single week. What happens in many cases, your results suffer. Again, that’s why we decided to create a Coolsculpting only boutique.

Ultherapy Atlanta: Skin Tightening

It’s called Ultherapy and it’s a new unique type of no-knife face lift without the downtime. Here with more is an Ultherapy specialist working in Atlanta.

First tell us, what is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is exciting. I’ve been a plastic surgeon for over twenty years and I do a lot of facial surgery and I’ve been looking for a long time for something to bridge those patients that may not be ready for a face lift or afraid of surgery that want the lifting that comes with a face lift. So, Ultherapy is a non-invasive therapy that can be done in the office that actually lifts the skin and deeper tissues.

How does Ultherapy work?

What’s exciting about it is that everyone’s familiar with ultrasound. It uses ultrasound energy to actually go into the deeper tissues to tighten up the deeper tissues (the same tissues that I would use when I’m doing a face lift to lift the tissues and make people look younger). It also tightens the skin from the inside out and that’s what’s so wonderful about it.

What can patients expect in terms of results?

I think people can really see some elevation of their eyebrows. A lot of people think that their eyes are getting heavy looking and actually, raising the eyebrows will alleviate a lot of that. Some of the wrinkles around the eyes and lower eyes can be made better. Importantly, a lot of people come in with jowls that they don’t like or loss of definition in their jaw line. What’s beautiful is with one single treatment, you can get much more definition and not feel like you look so saggy.

How many treatments of Ultherapy will you need?

Most patients just need one treatment to see skin tightening with Ultherapy Atlanta. Because it is something that is actually done at one time, people see a result immediately but the beauty is that it makes collagen production happen over time. So, for the next two or three months, you’ll actually see tightening. Most people just need one treatment. If it were me, I’d probably have it done once a year.

Is anybody a candidate for Ultherapy?

Most people are great candidates for it. I think people that have a lot of excess skin may need some services in the operating room such as a face lift. However, really anybody between 30 and 60 that has reasonable skin elasticity would get a beautiful result from this. Also, those people that have had surgery such as a face lift, may not be ready to have that skin tightening surgically, but the Ultherapy is a wonderful alternative.
