Things you need to know about body contouring

Cosmetic surgery is a type of plastic surgery that aims to improve the physical appearance of a person. Cosmetic surgery continues to gain popularity, with 15.1 million cosmetic procedures performed each year. While it is possible to improve almost all parts of the body through cosmetic surgery, this should not be done lightly. The results are often permanent, so it is important to be sure of the decision made, to call in a professional practitioner and to have the right motivation. A consultation is always necessary before the operation so that the surgeon can assess the patient’s state of health and make sure that surgery is really necessary. Indeed, some people may show signs of dysmorphic body disorder. Restorative surgery is another type of plastic surgery. It aims to improve function and give a normal appearance to a part of the body that has been damaged in an accident or because of an illness.

Monitoring your diet and exercising regularly are great ways to keep you healthy. Despite your efforts, you notice that certain parts of your body retain fat. This phenomenon is attributable to hereditary predisposition. Know that it is now possible, thanks to new sophisticated technologies, to sculpt the silhouette and to rid it of its roundnesses, in particular, “the love handles”, “rolls”, “saddlebags” and fatty deposits under the arms and the famous double chin.

More To Know About Body Contouring

The fat cells are composed of an envelope and its contents (fats). Several platforms will have the effect of reducing the size of the envelopes or emptying them of their greases. Over time, they will fill up again or resume their original volume. Unlike these platforms, the technologies we use allow you to redraw your body and achieve a lasting result. Designed for patients who want a smooth, non-sequelae and non-convalescent approach, the non-invasive procedures that our doctors offer you during the evaluation can naturally eliminate body fat.

Liposuction, or suction-assisted lipectomy, uses thin cannulas or hollow metal tubes to suck fat from different parts of the body, usually the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, back of arms, and neck. Liposuction can also be used for male breast reduction. The tools used in liposuction include standard devices, ultrasonic, mechanical and laser. They are all based on the same principle: sucking fat through a tube.

Liposuction should not be equated with a weight loss procedure. Its main goal is to improve the physical appearance and eliminate excess fat resistant to diet and sport.

Complications are rare but possible. Such surgery can cause blood to accumulate under the skin, called hematoma, infection, sensation changes, allergic reactions, lesions of the lower structures, and unsatisfactory results. The surgeon must discuss this with the patient beforehand.

You should know that liposuction does not reduce the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure.
