No matter how much you diet and exercise, there can be excess fat
in certain places that sometimes just won't go away. Liposuction, also known as liposculpting or
bodysculpting are all terms to describe removing excess fat cells from targeted areas of the body.
Liposuction is used to contour and shape the body and is often used as a complementary surgical technique
to facelifts and body surgery. Liposuction is not a weight-loss alternative. It is a treatment for
those persistent pockets of fat resulting from hereditary, age and areas unaffected by diet and exercise.
The best candidates have good skin with healthy elasticity.
Liposuction is safer and more effective than before due to advances in technology, technique and defined standards.
All liposuction is essentially suction-assisted lipectomy, the removal of fat from the body through a form of suction.
Tusmescence, a treatment administered just prior to liposuction involves infusing the areas to be treated with a
solution to help plump up the fat cells to make them easier to remove, and control the amount of pain and bruising
after the procedure. Even though technology has improved and the techniques have been refined, the ultimate outcome
is influenced by the surgeon's aesthetic eye. Dr. Edween uses small precise instruments to sculpt and create the
smoothest contours and the most natural shape.
Recovery from liposuction is generally easy. Patients are encouraged to be active since good constant circulation
is essential to promote quality healing. Soon after surgery you will see a noticeable difference in the shape of your
body with the results improving as swelling and fluid retention resolve over the next few months. You will be more
confident in your appearance and your clothes will fit more comfortably. Maintaining your new shape is often becomes
a priority, and encourages healthy eating habits and regular exercise.
