Wondering if you will ever achieve your ideal weight can be frustrating at times and can often end up leaving you feeling upset and defeated. You diet and exercise religiously, but those hard to reach areas of fat just won’t budge. We are talking about those annoying areas of fat you’ve probably had most of your life such as the back of the neck, double chins, thighs, “muffin-tops”, love handles and more.
But what can the average person do to rid themselves of unsightly fat pockets safely? The answer to your problem may be liposuction.
Liposuction is a safe fat removal procedure that can be extremely effective in removing unwanted fat in those hard to get to places. But don’t mistake liposuction for a weight loss procedure; it actually works best on patients who are not overweight and can adhere to consistent diet routines. When other methods of burning fat fail, liposuction in Coconut Creek may be a viable option for you. Turn your time in quarantine into a more productive one by researching liposuction. This surgical procedure breaks down and removes the subcutaneous fat layer (fat just under the skin) in stubborn parts of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise.
How is liposuction performed?
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure and usually in the comfort of your surgeon’s medical suite. At East/West Physicians our experienced doctor, assisted by his medical team, begins the liposuction procedure by making small incisions in your skin and then inserting a tool called a cannula into the fat pocket. This cannula is then attached to a suction device or a syringe to extract the fat from the targeted area. Patients are generally sedated with twilight anesthesia medication that leaves you awake but unaware of what’s going on. Generally patients have a hard time remembering what happened during and after the procedure. Pain following a liposuction procedure is mild, and your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic to eliminate the possibility of infection as well as a mild pain reliever after the procedure to make you more comfortable.
