Is Your Body Ready for Spring? Learn How Body Contouring Procedures Can Get You There
2 Minute Read:
With the warmer months approaching, everyone wants to look their best. You will likely be spending a lot of time outdoors and will want to show off a healthy and toned physique.
After months of being confined to the indoors, not only because of cold weather but also because of the pandemic, such confinement takes its toll on our bodies. A late-winter procedure might be the answer to all your concerns.
Procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can get you looking your best while you venture out after the cold months and see life start to slowly return to normal.
Is Liposuction a Good Option for Me?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat deposits from specific areas of the body. This is a good option for stubborn, hard-to-tone areas.
If you have noticed that fat in certain areas refuses to go away even with a proper diet and exercise routine, then liposuction may be a good option for you.
Is Liposuction Safe?
Liposuction is generally safe for individuals who are in good health. You are a good candidate if you are of average weight and need specific areas treated. Your skin should be firm and elastic.
Older patients who elect to have liposuction may experience loose and sagging skin after the procedure—which can be treated with an additional skin removal cosmetic procedure. Patients with cellulite deposits may not experience a desirable outcome after liposuction as they may be left with skin irregularities.
Should I Consider a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a highly individualized procedure that helps you achieve a fit and toned stomach. For some individuals, no amount of exercise will correct a sagging stomach. It’s extremely frustrating to exercise and not get the results you were hoping for; therefore, you can get the results you desire with a tummy tuck.
The tummy tuck procedure involves removing excess skin and fat with possible abdominal muscle tightening, if needed.
What Is Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?
Individuals who undergo a tummy tuck should be in good overall health to ensure the procedure goes well and recovery is smooth. You should expect to have four to six weeks of downtime while you recover.
During your recovery, small tubes may be placed under the skin to drain excess fluid, and you’ll be prescribed pain medication to take as needed.
