Among all the different cosmetic surgical procedures that exist today, liposuction remains the most popular among both men and women. Nearly everyone, when they look in the mirror, may find that they have areas on their bodies where they have more fat than they would like. Even those of us that exercise regularly and eat right may find areas they want to change where they simply cannot seem to lose the fat they have. Understanding the liposuction procedure in Los Angeles here at our facility at Venice Beach Surgical Center can give you greater insight into the surgery and what you can expect as a result.
The Basics of Liposuction
Most people understand the basic concept of liposuction. It removes the fat from the areas of the body you want to target. A small cannula is inserted into the skin in the area where the fat is to be removed. There have been many advances in technology since liposuction was first introduced in the United States in the early 1980s. This helps to make the procedure more effective, efficient and safer for patients. Various incisions may be made in different locations of the body to help sculpt the perfect look for you.
What to Expect After Liposuction
After you have your liposuction in Los Angeles performed by us at Venice Beach Surgical Center, you should expect to see some bruising and swelling in the immediate days following the procedure. Pain will be minimal after the surgery. The results will be noticeable for you. They will also improve over time as your body begins to heal and adjust to the new shape and contours. Normally, most patients can see the final results approximately four months or so after the initial operation.
