Liposuction – Are the Side Effects Worth it?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing fat through a thin follow tube called a cannula. The doctor literally is able to suck fat out of the body with liposuction. Say good-bye to all those stubborn problem areas!

The idea candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good health both mentally and physically, has realistic expectations, and has thoroughly researched both the procedure and doctor who is to be performing the surgery. Some patients are simply unhappy with the results of the plastic surgery because they did not know what they were getting themselves into. The liposuction side effects are very minor, but you should still do your research.

The perform the liposuction surgery, the doctor will begin by putting you under anesthesia, either general or local, but most likely local. He will them make tiny incisions where the cannula will be inserted to suck the fat out. A machine will assist him in sucking the fat out.  He will then stitch up the incisions, the rest of the liposuction recovery phase can begin.

At the beginning of the liposuction recovery period, you will experience some pain and soreness. This will be fairly mild however, and you shouldn’t need more than two or perhaps three days off from work, depending on what type of job you have (if your job requires  lot of strenuous manual labor, then you will obviously take more time off). There will also be a lot of swelling and bruising during the early phases of the liposuction recovery, however these will fade over time and shouldn’t be an issue a month down the road.

If you are worried about liposuction side effects, you probably shouldn’t be as they are generally quite mild. Most people will tolerate the side effects of liposuction and liposuction recovery quite well.

Factors that Influence Cost of Liposuction Surgery

There are many factors that influence the cost of liposuction. This is why it is difficult to predict what the cost might be for an individual without knowing more about their particular situation. Some of the major influences that affect how much liposuction costs include the area of the body to be treated, the technique involved, and the geographical location of the plastic surgery. Another important factor is the quality of the plastic surgeon. This is up to the individual to determine by shopping around and comparing the credentials. It is important find a surgeon with the proper certifications and experience instead of looking purely for the lowest price.

The area of the body that will receive treatment influences the cost because it really comes down to the amount of time and effort required of the plastic surgeon to complete the procedure. This means the size of the area and the amount of fat to be removed will play a major role. It also goes deeper than just the size and amount of fat. Some areas of the body require special attention such as delicate parts of the face or other hard to reach areas.

Some techniques are better suited for certain treatments than others. Depending on the goals and expectations of the patient the plastic surgeon can determine what technique will produce the best results. The most popular is tumescent liposuction which uses an injection before the surgery to assist in the suction of the fat. When it comes to tumescent liposuction cost, it really depends on whether there are other methods used such as laser assisted or ultrasound assisted liposuction. The technique employed is a major factor in liposuction costs because there are many fees associated with using the equipment and facility for surgery. There is also special pre surgery preparation as well as post surgical care which cost money and depend largely on what technique is used.
