When it comes to body contouring options, liposuction at my Columbia, MO, practice is a powerful and effective surgical approach that helps men and women slim down stubborn areas and achieve the body of their dreams. When my patients and I work together to make the most of the procedure’s capabilities, the transformative effect is undeniable.
Each step throughout the process, from the first consultation to the last follow-up appointment and beyond, plays a role in creating an attractive, long-lasting outcome. In this blog post, I’ll explain how I use my surgical skills to achieve the best possible results with liposuction and how you can take an active role in maintaining them.
Why People Love Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures at my practice and across the U.S. This is largely due to its ability to safely and effectively improve the appearance of the body without the longer recovery time more intensive procedures require. It’s also a highly popular enhancement to other procedures such as a tummy tuck because it can boost contouring effects and help create an ideal shape within a treated area.
Making the Most of Your Procedure
Liposuction is designed to remove fat from certain areas of the body to create a more shapely, contoured appearance. We can treat various areas of the body with the procedure, but generally, the best candidates are looking to target larger areas such as the hips, abdomen, or thighs. Rather than being a general weight loss method, the treatment works best for refining body contours and spot-treating areas of stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot fix.
When you meet with me for a personal consultation, we will discuss the ways to optimize the procedure for your body and create the most effective transformation. I also offer my recommendations for other procedures or combinations that may achieve even better results, such as a tummy tuck. I wrote an earlier blog post that offers some basic guidance for those who aren’t sure if another procedure would help them more.
Maintaining Your Results
Liposuction is not a cure-all for men and women seeking to lose weight and flaunt a slimmer silhouette. It is important to note that a healthy diet and exercise are key components of maintaining results. You can still gain weight after surgery, so keeping track of your eating habits and taking the time to exercise regularly are essential ways to make the most of your procedure. Many of my patients see the procedure as a motivation to pursue further health goals. Of course, it’s important to remember to always follow your surgeon’s post-op guidelines for safely returning to exercise.
