Even with a disciplined diet and rigorous exercise, pregnancy often results in problem areas of fat that you just can’t eliminate. Most commonly, patients complain of saddlebags of the outer thighs, bulging inner thighs, or prominent love handles on the flanks. Liposuction treatments is often performed to reshape, sculpt, and streamline those stubborn fat pockets as part of a more comprehensive mommy makeover. Areas commonly treated with liposuction include:
-Hips and buttocks
-Abdomen and waist
-Calves and ankles
During liposuction, doctors makes a series of small incisions. Using a thin, hollow tube (called a cannula), he gently loosens and removes the fat. They performs many types of liposuction, including tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and tickle liposuction. It’s normal to have some swelling and fluid retention after liposuction, but as these subside, you will be able to fully enjoy your new, sleeker contours. Depending on the type of liposuction procedure performed, recovery can be quicker or slower. Liposuction can permanently reduce unwanted body fat as long as you continue to maintain a health lifestyle of diet and exercise. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight, fat can collect in the treated areas.
