Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in both Canada and the United States. At Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic we offer several sophisticated liposuction procedures that can remove unwanted fatty tissue deposits from various areas of the body. Liposuction can result in smoother contours and an enhanced definition of your stomach, back, thighs, upper arms or neck. If you would like to learn how liposuction can help you accentuate your body contours, explore the information below.
Am I a Candidate?
While liposuction is appropriate for a wide range of patients, it is not a cure-all. We would like to dispel a common liposuction myth: liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. During liposuction, only a relatively small amount of fat is removed; therefore, this treatment is not for patients who are significantly overweight. In fact, we recommend that obese patients lose most of their excess weight through dieting or bariatric surgery. Once the prospective Toronto liposuction patients are healthy and close to their normal weight, they should schedule a consultation with us to discuss how liposuction can help them remove any remaining fatty tissue deposits, such as fat pockets on the hips, buttocks, stomach or neck.
Preparing for Your Liposuction Surgery
The preparation process begins well in advance of the surgery, we meet with our patients to learn about their health, their aesthetic desires and goals, and their surgical preferences. We evaluate the patient’s body frame and the amount of fatty tissue to determine which liposuction technique would produce the best results.
After our surgical team and the patient have created a detailed treatment plan, we explain how to prepare for the surgery. We discuss any medications and supplements the patient is taking, the importance of an appropriate diet and exercise regimen, and any other lifestyle changes the patient should make prior to the treatment, such as quitting smoking.
How Is It Performed?
Depending on the aesthetic needs and personal preferences of each patient, we might use one of several liposuction techniques, such as ultrasound-assisted liposuction, tumescent liposuction or laser liposuction. While the precise steps performed during each of these treatments differ, they all are based on the same principles. First, the fat cells are dislodged, and then they are suctioned out of the body. The instruments used during the procedure are very small; therefore, the only incisions are tiny punctures that become practically invisible once the healing is completed.
The liposuction procedure requires anywhere from one to four hours to complete, depending on the area treated and the amount of fat removed. Generally, we recommend that Toronto lipoplasty patients who wish to remove a large amount of fat schedule several sessions with enough time between the sessions to ensure proper healing. This approach reduces the risks that are associated with removing a very large amount of fat at once.
The results of liposuction become apparent within a few weeks, once the swelling subsides. However, the final results might not become visible until several months have passed.
While numerous liposuction procedures are performed every year without any complications, like all surgical procedures, there are several risks, such as bleeding, infection, swelling and minor bruising. During the recovery stage, we regularly meet with our liposuction Toronto patients to assess their progress and address any possible complications. As a result, the vast majority of our patients enjoy stunning results and are highly satisfied with their surgical experience.
If you are struggling with localized fat pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise, you might be a good candidate for liposuction or mommy makeover in Toronto.
