If you have stubborn areas of fat that won’t seem to budge no matter how much you diet or exercise, it’s easy to become discouraged. Liposuction is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted fat cells and create contour and definition in problem areas. If you live in Warner Robins, Macon, or Stockbridge, Georgia, schedule a consultation at Ageless Aesthetics today to find out if liposuction is right for you. Call or make an appointment online.
Liposuction, sometimes called lipo, is a low-risk surgical procedure that uses a small, stainless steel tube, known as a cannula, attached to a powerful suction pump to remove fat located between the skin and the muscles.
Liposuction can be performed on any part of the body where fat cells tend to collect. People can have the procedure on just one area or a combination of several places. Common areas are:
Recovery varies depending on the type of procedure and the amount of fat you’ve had removed. Smaller areas have less swelling and less downtime. More extensive procedures may require you to stay home from work for a few days and to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to control swelling. Most people can resume normal activities within two weeks.
People have different needs when it comes to body contouring. Ageless Aesthetics offers a variety of options to achieve your goals, including:
Mini-Lipo is for smaller areas with less fat to be removed. Mini-Lipo is conveniently performed in the office. You can return to work the next day since there’s little discomfort or swelling.
Mega-Lipo is for larger or multiple areas. Performed in a surgical setting, Mega-Lipo has greater sculpting capability. For example, “six-pack abs” can be enhanced during a full abdominal procedure.
Fat transfers use fat removed from one area to improve another part of the body. A fat transfer can add volume to your face for a more youthful look. Using fat for breast augmentation is an alternative to synthetic implants.
Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular type of fat transfer that enhances the height and shape of the buttocks.
BodyTite and FaceTite are minimally invasive techniques that are similar to liposuction, but use radio frequencies to dissolve fat rather than removing it. BodyTite and FaceTite have the added benefit of restructuring the under layer of the skin, so it retains tone after the fat has melted away.
