7 things you should know before doing a liposuction
Do you know that localised fat that you’ve been trying to get rid of for years? You’ve tried everything, all possible and imaginable diets and exercises to eliminate them, but until now….no success. You might also have considered going for liposuction to get rid of them at once. But before you decide to undergo any surgical procedure, it’s essential to research well and be aware of the risks and possible outcomes. Therefore, we’ve gathered some necessary information to help you to make the right decision:
1 – Improve your posture
Some localised fats result from poor posture that has been adopted over the years, stimulating the storage of fat in the body parts that are overloaded with weight. According to specialists, a better posture can help lose weight as it thins the frame instantly, making you look and feel better about your body, improving energy levels, and hence your confidence. Wearing Yoga Model compression garments is one of the best ways to strengthen your muscles and improve your posture. Why not give them a go before opting for a surgical procedure?
2 – Choose your doctor wisely
Ask for recommendations from your friends and health specialists, and choose a few doctors to visit first. Ask as many questions as you need to feel confident about the surgery and possible outcomes. Ensure the chosen professional has a specialisation title and is registered on The General Medical Council in the UK. Search for his name on https://www.gmc-uk.org/registration-and-licensing/the-medical-register
3 – Liposuction does not lose weight
The procedure is not indicated for obese people. There is a limited amount of fat that can be withdrawn at once: up to 5 litres, or about 11 pounds. Removing more than that is generally not considered safe. Liposuction is recommended to shape the body, removing localised fat, not to lose weight.
4 – Recovery
Your doctor will probably recommend wearing Yoga Model garments with different levels of compression throughout your recovery so you can achieve the best results after liposuction. The garments will help you to reduce fluid retention, improve blood circulation and relieve post-surgical pain, among other benefits. Lymphatic drainage is also essential to drain excess liquid from your body after liposuction.
5 – The result of the surgery only appears after three months
You can even get a sense of the result of liposuction in the first month, but the swelling remains. The result, even, will only be seen three to six months after the operation.
6 – It is possible to gain weight after lipo
In addition to the swelling, it is possible to gain weight after the lipo. Our body always seeks to achieve balance. If our body is used to a certain amount of fat, he tries to recover when eliminated. For this reason, it’s essential to follow a diet plan and do physical activities not only in the postoperative period but also afterwards. Adopt a new healthy lifestyle for long term results.
7 – Every surgery has risks
Some bad outcomes may happen mainly because of doctors not accredited as plastic surgeons. The procedure is technically simple, but if it’s done by a professional who is not qualified, complications might occur.
Do your research, look for alternatives and ultimately opt for a lipo after considering all the risks and possible results.
