Liposuction is known far and wide in the plastic surgery community. Even those who have never had a single cosmetic or aesthetic procedure have heard of liposuction. This fat removal procedure has grown in popularity among both celebrities and common people. Its technology has advanced over the years to make this procedure effective and incredibly safe.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is arguably among the top cosmetic procedures in the United States. This popularity stems from its ability to remove fat from unwanted areas of the body. Liposuction, often nicknamed “lipo,” is a procedure that removes fat through a special tool that is inserted into the skin. This tool serves as a vacuum and suctions out fat cells.
How Do I Know if I Qualify for Liposuction?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brothers. The best candidates for liposuction should lead healthy lifestyles with regular diet and exercise. This procedure should not be used for weight loss, but it may help patients lose a few pounds. Liposuction is designed to target fatty pockets that have been resistant to diet and exercise.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
When considering liposuction, you may be concerned about the cost. Because this is an elective procedure, it is not covered by most health care insurance providers. The actual cost of your liposuction treatment will be dependent on the size of the area that is treated. At the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, we understand that not all of our patients can afford to pay out-of-pocket for these procedures. We offer financing options for our patients and we accept most major credit cards.
How Long Does Liposuction Last?
Liposuction permanently removes the fat from the treated area. However, fat can reappear if you are not following a healthy lifestyle. Continuing with diet and exercise after liposuction is the best way to prevent fat from redeveloping. Aging may also cause fat to reappear. Liposuction may need to be reapplied in the future for better results.
Who Has Previously Gotten Liposuction?
If you think you’re alone in using liposuction to secretly look and feel better, think again. You probably know someone who has had lipo without ever knowing that they went through the procedure. On a larger scale, you have seen faces and body that have been perfectly enhanced with liposuction. Think back to the nearest movie or TV show that you have watched. Most of your favorite movie stars and TV show hosts have had liposuction at some point. To name a few familiar faces, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jessica Alba, Mariah Carey, Demi Moore, and many others have had lipo. These red carpet bodies are seamlessly perfected with the help of liposuction technologies.
