Female Liposuction

Female liposuction is an effective way to produce dramatic changes in a woman’s figure by removing fatty deposits that seem disproportionate to other parts of the body. This may be done through several different types of liposuction, including traditional liposuction, laser liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, vaser liposuction, or tumescent liposuction. All of these different liposuction applications allow the cosmetic surgeon to use a small hollow instrument to break fat cells away from the muscle and skin and vacuum them from the body. Female lipo may be used on the ankles, thighs, and knees to reduce the size of the leg in these areas. It is also a popular way to reduce the stomach, waist, hips, and breasts by several inches.

Though some women want to use female liposuction as a method of weight loss, doctors do not encourage this plan. Female liposuction is a permanent method for removing fat cells, but overeating can always cause weight gain in other areas. Female liposuction will make the figure more attractive and allow the wardrobe to fit better. Liposuction procedures usually require no overnight time in the hospital, and the pain associated with them can be easily controlled with medication at home.

After most liposuction treatments, patients are incapacitated for only a very short time. Some procedures can be done one day and patients can return to work on the following day. Depending on how large the surgical area is and its location on the body, patients may recover entirely within a few weeks. Until that time, surgeons will direct that a compression bandage or garment be worn to reduce bruising and swelling and prevent blood clots from forming. If stitched are placed to close the small insertion openings, these will be removed in about a week.

Research in the field of female liposuction treatment is advancing daily and new instruments and methods are bringing about safer methods and better instruments. Most women are delighted with their new body image, and many return for further liposuction sessions on other areas of their bodies.
