UNFAVOURABLE BODY SHAPES – EXCESS FAT DEPOSITS ALL OVER THE BODY
When you gain weight, fat cells increase in both volume and size. Getting liposuction treatment will reduce the number of fat cells in a specific area. The amount of fat removed depends on the appearance of the area and the volume of fat. The resulting contour changes are usually permanent — as long as you remain at a stable weight.
Certain parts of the body such as the tummy and thighs, are prone to getting pockets of fat that do not respond to exercise or healthy eating. These are the areas that liposuction surgery can effectively target in order to dissolve the fat and create a more refined figure.
Men and women who have areas of localized fat choose liposculpture because they desire a trimmer, slimmer figure. This procedure can ‘fine-tune’ troublesome areas, creating the svelte shape you may have always dreamed of having.
SYMPTOMS OF UNFAVOURABLE BODY SHAPES – EXCESS FAT DEPOSITS ALL OVER THE BODY
Fatty deposits, which do not respond to physical exercise or healthy eating, in the following areas:
- Hips and thighs
- Calves and ankles
- Chest and back
TREATMENT OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR UNFAVOURABLE BODY SHAPES – EXCESS FAT DEPOSITS ALL OVER THE BODY
Liposculpture is a technique that helps to sculp the face and body. Some of the most commonly-treated areas include the face, flanks, thighs and upper arms. This procedure can be performed under general or local anaesthesia and involves the removal of fat deposits from the body, through a cannula (small metal tube). The cannula is inserted through tiny incisions made in the targeted areas.
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF AFTER THE PROCEDURE
After liposuction you are usually required to wear a support garment for up to 3 weeks. In the first 2-3 days you can expect fluid to drain. There will also be some pain and discomfort, but pain medication will be prescribed. Complete recovery takes approximately 3 weeks, but can take up to 3 months to see the final results.
Radio Frequency Assisted Liposculpture (RFAL)
BodyTite is the latest advanced technique of surgical body contouring that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to liquefy the unwanted fat before its removal by vacuum suction. A unique feature of this technology is that the RF energy also produces a powerful tightening effect on the skin. When used to treat the entire trunk (abdomen, waist, lower back and hips), a significant “shrink wrapping” effect occurs, thus producing dramatic contouring and slimming effects. Its skin tightening effect is so powerful that it has been found that patients who are borderline candidates for a tummy tuck due to post pregnancy loose abdominal skin can avoid undergoing a tummy tuck and instead achieve equally amazing results with the RFAL BodyTite procedure, without having the long scar afterwards.
