WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Consultation is necessary
Before you go buy a short sleeved top, book a preoperative consultation. This is necessary before any procedure. At the Aesthevita clinic you will receive a consultation by a plastic surgeon, a most competent specialist. Ask him anything you would like to know. The doctor will give you specific recommendations, and you will leave with a clearer picture of the process and outcome of the procedure.
Where exercise is not enough, liposuction will help
Each body has a tendency to store fat in certain areas. Are you struggling with the accumulation of fat on your upper arms? Exercise won't do much to slim down your arms, on the contrary, your muscles will grow. If you only have one wish - to get rid of fat in this area - then liposuction is one of the easiest solutions. And most importantly, it has a sure outcome.
Right before the surgery
Before the procedure itself, you will undergo a preoperative examination with a blood and ECG test. Patients over the age of 50 will also undergo a lung X-ray; for smokers the age limit is 40+.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
Choose the type of anaesthesia
The ultrasonic liposuction is performed both under local and general anesthesia. The second option is more comfortable for the patients, because it doesn't hurt a bit. If you choose local anesthesia, expect to feel the pressure of the cannula as the surgeon extracts the fat.
The ultrasonic probe mechanically breaks up the fat cells, which crack under the influence of the waves, making it easier to remove them with the cannula. The VASER Lipo device minimizes postoperative hematoma and brusing. The quality of the VASER Lipo device is attested to by its approval by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). After the procedure, the wounds are closed with absorbable sutures and sterile bandages are applied.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Schedule time off
Tumescent liposuction combined with an ultrasound is less demanding for patients, and the recovery process is faster than after conventional liposuction. Nevertheless, it is necessary to rest shortly after the procedure, and minor bruising may occur. After a week of resting, you can slowly return to your normal activities. You will be able to handle sports and exercise about 4-6weeks after the procedure.
Wear compression garment
For six weeks after the surgery you will be constantly wearing compression underwear. Only remove it for short periods of time - to take a shower, for example. It prevents further bruising and facilitates healing. After one week you canstart gently massaging the area. This will give the scars elasticity and speed up their healing.
The curves will gradually become visible
After the liposuction, the body gradually deflates. Don't be surprised if you feel like your arms are not as slim as you would like them to be after a few weeks. It will happen, but perhaps not immediately after the last bruise disappears.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
The fat will not return to the treated areas
We are born with a certain amount of fat cells. Our fat cells behave according to our genetic predispositions, as well as according to how we take care of our bodies. The removed fat cells do not grow back, so you will no longer store fat in the areas where liposuction was performed.
Although your body will no longer store fat in the treated areas, you can't trick your body that easily. It will find other places to store fat. You know your body the best. Can you eat whatever you want without gaining one gram? Then there is no need to change anything. However, if you gain weight after every extra calorie, maintaining your new figure will require your effort. Exercise regularly to compensate for a sedentary job, and remove as many bad habits from your diet as possible.
