Many folks go the extra mile to ensure they keep their body trim, natural and attractive. These measures often include regular aerobic and anaerobic exercise sessions and a strict healthy diet devoid of excess calories. But despite your best efforts, excess weight or fat deposits can make you obese, feel ugly, and even depressed.
If you have tried everything and those fleshy flabby contours stubbornly remain, then it is time to have a chat with Dr. Lisa J. Learn.
Dr. Learn’s expert liposuction techniques have helped many people that used to fight with losing excess fat despite heavy diet and exercise. Their confidence was shattered and they had a depressed emotional state, but with Dr. Learn’s help, they have been able to find their confidence and love the body they are in once again! You too can lose excess fat and feel more confident with liposuction.
Why Liposuction Could be Right for You
The human body has a tendency to start accumulating fat at the onset of adulthood. There are a lot of causative factors that can accelerate this natural tendency. Some of them include weight gain during pregnancy, slowing metabolism, and sub-optimal dietary or nutritional habits.
Regardless of what has brought unwanted layers of fat to your body, the simple fact is that you always want to be in your best element when it comes to your body condition and dress code, especially when stepping out to interact with others. That is perfectly normal—as is taking measures to achieve your trim-look objectives.
You should consider liposuction a viable alternative if exercise and diet have failed to eliminate those excess fats you do not like. Yes — it is time for a new approach.
Dr. Learn’s liposuction process can wipe away swathes of fat in your thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, or any other place where you feel weighed down by extra weight.
How Liposuction Works
How a typical liposuction procedure works is largely dependent on the type of liposuction. Below is a brief description of the main types of liposuctions and how each works.
This is the most widely patronized liposuction type. It commences with the injection of a saltwater or saline solution into the selected fatty portions of your body. One of the components of the solution is epinephrine which helps to shrink blood vessels and minimize the loss of blood during the liposuction process.
The main job of the solution is to hydrate the fat so that it can easily be suctioned out. If necessary, your surgeon may administer other medications to ensure relief from pain.
In ultrasound-assisted liposuction, waves of ultrasonic energy are deployed to convert the redundant fat into a liquid form before being sucked out with a cannula. This liposuction type is often used for stubborn body areas such as the neck, chin, knees, ankles, and feet. Ultrasound liposuction can be internal (emission of sonic energy inside the body) or external (emission of sonic energy outside the body).
VASER is short for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. During VASER liposuction, a saline solution or tumescent fluid containing an anesthetic is injected into the fatty area. After this, ultrasound probes are then inserted into the individual’s skin via a tiny incision to loosen the fatty tissue. When the fats have been sufficiently loosened, a cannula will then be used to evacuate them from the body.
Power-assisted liposuction is conducted by inserting a vibrating cannula into the portion of the body where the fatty tissue is located. The vibration is needed to break down the fat and thus facilitate easy suctioning or evacuation via the cannula.
This kind of liposuction involves the use of laser beams and a fiber tube to liquefy fat for easier, faster suctioning. It requires a small skin incision.
No matter what procedure you and Dr. Learn decide to use, you will get the same overall result—a sculpted body you feel comfortable in.
The Results You Hope to See
Anyone who decides to undertake liposuction is hoping to see the many benefits. Some of the benefits of liposuction include:
- Reduction in the number of inflammatory cells in your body.
- Can serve as motivation to start living a healthier lifestyle.
- Can lead to a significant reduction in the level of triglycerides in the body.
- Helps boost self-esteem and check depression.
- Brings about better mobility, especially in the hips, thighs, and knees.
- Can enhance libido (since excess weight is associated with reduced libido).
- Liposuction can help ensure that your tendons and joints do not wear out prematurely due to obesity in addition to preventing chronic neck and back pain.
Liposuction is Not a Magic Pill
Before going for liposuction, you need to discuss it extensively with Dr. Learn to understand what it is and what it is not. Liposuction surely brings several benefits such as those highlighted above. However, it is not synonymous with a “cure-all” magic pill that will permanently treat obesity and weight problems forever. Neither is it a replacement for regular exercise and healthy eating.
The fats you removed via liposuction can come back in the future if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes a proper fitness routine and a rigid weight management program.
It may also interest you to know that liposuction is not an effective treatment for the dimpled effects that arise from cellulite and saggy or loose skin. Such issues can be considered surface problems that should be treated separately after proper medical consultation.
In summary, you need to have realistic expectations and goals when going for liposuction. You must realize that liposuction only treats specific areas of the body. It is neither a cure for obesity nor does it prevent you from regaining weight over time. If you strictly adhere to Dr. Learn’s post-surgery instructions though and build new healthy habits, you will be fine.
What to Expect When Getting Liposuction
Leading up to the Procedure
Before commencing the liposuction surgery, Dr. Learn and her team may place marks and lines on the portions of your body earmarked for treatment. It may also be necessary to have photoshoots of those areas for pre-surgery and post-surgery comparisons and analysis. Like noted earlier, the way a liposuction process works depends on the particular type of liposuction.
Usually, an appropriate technique will be suggested by Dr. Learn after certain considerations. Among those considerations may include the area(s) of your body meant for treatment, your treatment objectives/goals, if you suffer any allergies, are presently taking any medications, and if you have previously undergone liposuction.
The Procedure Itself
The procedure will be based on the technique determined by Dr. Learn and consented to by you. The selected technique will determine whether only local, regional, or general anesthesia will be administered. Dr. Learn and her team may decide to inject a sedative into you to keep you relaxed and calm. If you received local anesthesia and develop pain at any stage of the process, promptly inform the procedure team so that the pain will be dealt with.
During the surgery, Dr. Learn and her team may observe routine medical protocol that includes monitoring your heart rate and checking your blood pressure and oxygen level, and more. The duration of the surgery is usually dependent on the amount of fat to be suctioned and the number of areas to be treated. Dr. Learn’s professional acumen or expertise will also make things proceed more quickly.
If you were given general anesthesia, you will come back to consciousness in a recovery room. You will most likely be kept in the surgery center for a few hours so that those who carried out the surgery will assess and evaluate the pace of your recovery. It may be necessary to pass the night in the clinic or hospital to ensure you do not suffer dehydration or enter into shock due to loss of fluid.
After undergoing a liposuction procedure, you may experience early side effects such as some degree of swelling and fluid retention. Wearing a compression garment or elastic bandage for some time will help minimize the swelling. Do not worry about the swelling since it is not unusual at this stage. With time, the post-surgery swelling will subside and you will be able to better appreciate your renewed contours shortly thereafter.
In some cases, it may be necessary to temporarily drain any excess fluid to tackle any swelling, if it becomes a problem. Swelling and all other matters arising after the liposuction surgery are usually discussed during the patient’s post-surgery consultations with Dr. Learn. Consultations are an excellent avenue for both parties to come together and see that healing is progressing according to schedule and that any side effects are promptly dealt with medically.
The length of your recovery period will depend on a combination of factors, but the most important variable for ensuring the fastest possible recovery is compliance with all of Dr. Learn’s postoperative instructions. These include matters like how to care for surgical sites, medication information, and other salient considerations.
