What Type Of Lipo Fits You?

Posted on

Sometimes rigid diet and exercise doesn’t get rid of the fat that’s stored in certain areas of our body. This can be extremely frustrating, especially if you have been working hard to lead a healthy lifestyle to create a toned body. Liposuction is a good option to remove that stubborn fat and improve your figure.

Usually, whenever the word “liposuction” is mentioned, most people only think that it applies to sucking the fat out of the stomach area.  Liposuction can actually be performed in various parts located all over the body but it does take both skill and experience.  The procedure can be performed at a doctor’s office or at a surgery center. If a large quantity of fat is being removed than the procedure will take place in a hospital.

Types of Liposuction

Before you go deciding on the location you want the liposuction performed, it’s important for you to know the different types of liposuction procedures that are available to you.

Tumescent Liposuction – During this technique, the surgeon will inject a special solution into the fatty area before they began the process of removing the fat.  This special solution is a mixture of saline solution, a pain killer and ephedrine which helps the blood vessel contracts, making it easier for the surgeon to remove the fat from the specific area.

Ultrasound liposuction – With this technique ultrasonic energy is used to melt or liquefy the fatty tissues before it’s removed from the body.

Smart Lipo – This is a new method which involves using a low energy laser to eradicate targeted fat cells before the fat is removed in the traditional way.

What Part Of The Body Is Liposuction Good For?

As mentioned, you can have liposuction performed on nearly any fatty area of your body. Some of those areas include:

Outer Thigh – The outer thigh area, commonly referred to as saddle bags is a problem area for curvy women.  The surgeon must pay attention to the actual curve of the thigh when performing liposuction in this area because the smallest changes can have an effect on the body’s silhouette. Once the desired amount of fat is removed from this area you can drop a couple jean sizes.

Waist/Love Handles – Love handles is a dread problem for both men and women. Despite dieting and exercise, love handles seem to never go away. This area of the body has is always more well defined and has good skin elasticity so the procedure is effortless and once completed there is a noticeable reduction in waist size.

Back – Yes, liposuction can get rid of that back fat or back rolls usually located on the lower portion of the back. Since the area is thick aggressive liposuction may be needed to improve the area.

Calves – Fatty calves can be improved with liposuction to create a smooth and continuous contour. There are risks associated with having liposuction done in this area. There could be possible irregularities in the contour of the calve since there isn’t much deep fat to work with within that area of the body.
