What is liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is a procedure used by plastic surgeons to reshape or contouring one’s body. The suction technique is used to remove fat from specific areas in order to give those areas better shape and appearance. Liposuction is most commonly done on areas like the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms and under the chin.
Although liposuction surgery is used for fat reduction, it is not suitable for people suffering from obesity. Moreover, Liposuction is best suited for people with normal and stable body weight. Thus, liposuction can never be taken as an alternative to weight loss. For people suffering from obesity or for those who are overweight, gastric bypass surgery may be considered as an option in cases where dieting and exercise fail to provide the desired result.
Liposuction is more commonly performed for cosmetic reasons. Liposuction improves the body shape hence improving the overall appearance. It helps people with normal weight and elastic body by removing the excess fat at targeted areas which could not be removed through exercise and diet. Such type of excess fat deposits may be genetic and not due to fitness issues. Other possible uses of liposuction surgery may be the treatment of gynecomastia or breast reduction.
Liposuction can be best performed for people who have a healthy and elastic body. Body elasticity helps the treated areas to look smooth and firm. For those who have poor body elasticity, the treated areas may appear loose or saggy. For this reason, liposuction is more suitable for younger adults.
Things to do to take care of your shape after liposuction
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that helps a person get the desired shape by removing excess fat accumulated at specific areas. As stated earlier, it is not associated with weight loss as it just provides body contouring.
However, studies prove that healthy diet and exercise is the key to maintain the results of liposuction surgery. Liposuction surgery can only prove beneficial if accompanied with proper diet and regular exercise.
Liposuction surgery before and after requirements of the exercise is due to the fact that our body is adapted to gain weight at the areas where liposuction has been done. When liposuction is done at specific areas of the body, fat cells from that are permanently removed. Thus, the re- growth of fat is restricted. However, fat cells from other adjoining areas may start to shift to the treated area. If such a situation occurs, the whole procedure of liposuction goes in vain.
Studies prove that the accumulation of fat cells from the adjoining areas can be highly reduced by following a proper diet and exercising at least thrice a week. Thus, the fact that liposuction surgery before and after requirements of exercise remains the same is very true.
Another risk that is marked after liposuction surgery is the danger of gaining visceral fat. Visceral fat is the belly fat that accumulates around the organs located deep under the abdomen. This type of fat is not good for the body and may lead to heart diseases and diabetes. To fight against visceral fat, exercise is the best possible way. During a survey, liposuction surgery before and after visceral fat levels of a group of women were recorded. It showed that women who exercised regularly were at a lower risk of visceral fat compared to those who did not involve in any kind of workouts.
Liposuction may trim and shape your body, but, to maintain the proper shape and health, proper care of the body is a must. Regular exercise, healthy diet, and improved lifestyle are the only possible ways by which a person may retain the desired shape and balance of the body.
