What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, sometimes referred to as lipo, is a cosmetic procedure that permanently removes fat cells from the body. It can be used to eliminate fat from nearly any area of the body, and can even be used on the face in some cases. Liposuction is a great solution for stubborn fat deposits on the body, such as love handles or the lower abdomen. Although liposuction offers slimming results to improve your figure, it is not a weight loss alternative. Patients considering liposuction should be close to their ideal weight, and save it for areas of the body that fail to respond to diet and exercise.
What is SAFELipo®?
SAFELipo® is a new liposuction technique that optimizes the liposuction experience. It offers comprehensive body contouring while maximizing skin retraction, leaving patients with stunningly natural-looking results and less sagging skin. This method also minimizes the damage done to the surrounding tissue, accelerating recovery and reducing the potential for complications. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz has significant experience with SAFELipo®, and offers it as an improved liposuction procedure.
What Can I Expect from a Liposuction Procedure?
Liposuction involves inserting a minuscule tube, called a cannula, into the body, through which fat is removed. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. With SAFELipo®, the fat is gently redistributed and suctioned out, facilitating a smoother removal and more natural results. SAFELipo® also provides skin tightening to minimize the amount of excess skin left over after treatment. The time required for liposuction varies depending on the size of the area being treated, although SAFELipo® offers a slightly faster treatment.
How is Recovery from Liposuction?
Your recovery will largely depend on the size of the area treated with liposuction. However, most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a few days, and feel fully recovered within a week or two. We recommend getting as much rest as possible following your procedure, as this ensures a smooth recovery. Most patients are able to resume exercise and other physical activity approximately two weeks after their procedure.
