How Can I Make Sure I'm Happy With My Liposuction?
Lots of people are getting liposuction (also known as lipoplasty and suction lipectomy) these days. Men and women, celebrities and "normal people," old and young, it seems like more and more people from all walks of life are getting lipoplasty.
Just as there's increasing diversity in the types of people who become lipoplasty patients, there's also a fair amount of diversity in the sorts of lipoplasty patients they become. Some of them are extremely happy with the results that their surgery gave them and only wish they'd gotten their surgery sooner. Some others are extremely displeased with their results and wish that they hadn't gotten the surgery. A number of others find themselves somewhere in the middle.
Naturally, anyone considering liposuction wants to know how to become a part of the first group of patients. There are a few things that a prospective patient can do to make sure that you have the best chances possible of having a good, successul surgery.
First, people should understand the limits of the surgery. A large number of people who are upset with their results are displeased because thier expectations did not match their reality. Getting a good grasp of the reality of lipoplasty can help with this. The surgery can typically only treat a few areas at a time, and cannot typically remove more than 10 pounds of fat.
Furthermore, while the surgery can often offer improvements on your appearance, it cannot usually achieve perfection. If you are expecting to look absolutely flawless, you will probably be disappointed. You may experience a small amount of scarring or blemishing. However, you will probably be able to make your target area trimmer.
Second, pick your surgeon very carefully. Your surgeon will do a lot to make or break your surgery, so you don't want to rush into making this important decision. In your surgeon, you are looking for two things. First, you are looking for one who will do the surgery safely. You don't want someone who has a track record of accidents or who doesn't have a lot of experience. You want someone who knows exactly how to work on your body and keep you healthy and safe.
Another thing that you are looking for in your surgeon is someone whose aesthetic matches your own or who at least understands your idea of beauty. In short, in your surgeon you are looking for both a technician and an artist.
Looking at a number of before and after pictures can help you to realize whether or not a surgeon's work appeals to you. However, remember that you may be seeing only the best examples of a surgeon's work.
Take time as you make your decisions regarding your liposuction. There's no need to rush. You'll be investing a lot in your surgery. Why not take the time to make it the best it can be?
