5 Reasons To Make Liposuction A Reality in 2021!

Even though you eat well and exercise rigorously, stubborn fat can remain. But there’s no reason to stay frustrated with it! Luckily, liposuction is a plastic surgery treatment that can eliminate stubborn fat to achieve a sleeker, more attractive figure and help you achieve your body goals this year!

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. It’s an effective and low-risk procedure we perform regularly here in Aristocrat’s Manhattan and Great Neck facilities.

New York board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani has performed countless successful liposuction procedures on his patients, and every procedure is highly customized based on individual anatomy and patient preference. If you choose to have a liposuction procedure, you’ll get a carefully devised surgical plan to re-contour your face or body.

Now, here are 5 great reasons to take care of yourself and eliminate those extra pounds once and for all with Liposuction:

  1. Body Contouring: if you’re unhappy with the shape of your body, liposuction can help you achieve a more proportionate body profile without weight loss or undertaking a radical, unhealthy diet.
  2. Fat Reduction: liposuction reduces fat production by removing fat cells. And as with any procedure, liposuction isn’t perfect, but with regular exercise and a proper diet, you can maintain the effectiveness of your liposuction treatment.
  3. Boosting Confidence: stubborn fat can be embarrassing and make you feel like your efforts at weight loss and dieting are in vain. But the instant effects of liposuction surgery can make you look more attractive and help you regain your natural beauty. The bright, confident smile you’ll gain can do just as much for your appearance as the surgery itself.
  4. Targeting Tough Areas: liposuction can eliminate fat from specific parts of the body, such as the buttocks, stomach, thighs, and upper arms, as well as small body parts such underneath the chin or the forehead. It’s perfect if you have one specific “problem area” that you want to get rid of.
  5. Improving Health: in the area of overall health, liposuction can help reduce fat cells or triglycerides in your blood. Even though triglycerides are produced naturally by the body, high levels of them can increase the risk of heart diseases. In a study, high levels of fat cells were reduced by an average of 43% after a liposuction procedure.

Your First Liposuction Treatment

If you’ve decided that liposuction is the procedure for you, your first step should be to consult with Dr. Tehraniin our Manhattan or Long Island office to talk about your goals, the options, risks, and benefits, and the costs. This is a perfect opportunity to ask all of your questions and address any concerns.

Determining If Liposuction Is Right For You

A good candidate for liposuction is of relatively normal weight with one or more areas of stubborn fat deposits and with good skin elasticity. If you have a double chin or localized pockets of fat on your body that haven’t budged despite your efforts, you’re probably a good candidate.

When You’re Good to Go

If you’re cleared to proceed with liposuction, our doctors will give you instructions on how you should prepare for the procedure.

Prior to your appointment date for surgery, Dr. Tehrani may request that you visit a medical doctor for a checkup and for any necessary lab work and x-rays. Precise preoperative instructions will be provided, and all necessary prescriptions will be given to you. All aspirin, aspirin-containing products, and anti-inflammatory products must be stopped at least ten days before and for ten days after your surgery. You will also be given a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations to take prior to and after your surgery to promote healing and limit bruising.

After You’re Done

Following your surgery, you’ll be fitted with an elastic garment that you’ll need to wear for two to three weeks. You can also expect to have some post-surgical bruising and swelling. The bruising will subside in a week or two, but the swelling may take two weeks to go down completely. lymphatic massage is usually prescribed after liposuction because it can work wonders to ease the swelling, bruising, and discomfort that can accompany recovery.

Are There Risks?

As with any cosmetic surgery, there are some risks, but you can help reduce them by choosing a board-certified, specially trained plastic surgeon like Dr. Tehrani. Risks that are directly related to liposuction that you’ll have to consider include:

  • Bleeding
  • Anesthesia complications
  • Shock from lack of fluid intake during surgery
  • Fluid accumulation in pockets under the skin
  • Strep or staph infections
  • Blood flow blockage from tiny pieces of fat breaking away
  • Burns from procedural instruments
  • Fat removal that’s uneven
  • Lidocaine reactions
  • Skin changes such as numbness
  • Deep vein blood clots
  • Damage that could affect nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lungs, or abdominal organs

Thorough precautions are taken to minimize and eliminate any chance of adverse reactions to your liposuction procedure including the lymphatic massage and elastic garment mentioned earlier. You’ll be able to go home after your procedure in the care of a friend or family member, and we can arrange for a private nurse at your request.

Most patients describe the pain following liposuction as mild. Pain medication will be prescribed to help with the post-surgical bruising and swelling. Your recovery and healing process will be monitored closely by experts here at Aristocrat.

How Safe is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a fairly safe procedure with minimal risks when done under the direction of a board-certified plastic surgeon, in a healthy and appropriate patient.

Is Liposuction Worth The Risk?

There are many great benefits to liposuction procedures. It’s an easy and fast procedure to rid yourself of undesired body fat. It can provide you with the desired shape and size that fits your body structure. There are lower risks of contracting other diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease due to excessive weight. Liposuction results are long-lasting, boost self-esteem, and increase confidence. And liposuction can deal with other medical problems such as lipodystrophy syndrome, lymphedema, gynecomastia, and lipomas.

Liposuction can also stimulate the growth of collagen, which helps keep the skin firm and wrinkle-free. In general, there are many reasons to get liposuction to achieve a desirable body shape you’ll be proud of. If you work hard to stay and look healthy, you deserve a figure that reflects how important it is to you. Get started by giving Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics a call today!
