What is Liposuction? What you need to know about liposuction.
Are you tired of excess fat, those bulges you have that just don’t respond to exercise or diet? There is a way to help rid your body of excess fat; it’s a procedure called liposuction and it can be performed by skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Barbara Siwy of Carmel and Bloomington, Indiana.
Liposuction can remove unwanted body fat from a number of areas including your:
Liposuction with suction assist is what most people think of when they think of liposuction. This process involves a small tube inserted into the fat deposit through a small incision in the skin. This tube is attached to a suction pump. The tube is moved through the fat deposit, breaking it up, and then the fat is removed by suction.
But now, thanks to modern, state-of-the-art technologies, there are many other methods of liposuction available, each with their own benefits. Dr. Siwy will discuss which option is best for you. Treatments available include:
Ultrasound Liposuction- using ultrasound vibration, the fat cell walls are destroyed and the fat is liquefied; after the ultrasound, the standard suction assisted technique is used to remove the liquid fat.
Tumescent technique- administering a local anesthetic to fat deposits, the tumescent technique eliminates the need for general anesthesia and sedatives during the procedure.
Water Liposuction- a thin water beam breaks up the fat tissue and the fat is removed by a special tube.
If you have tried diet and exercise and still have those ugly, stubborn bulges of excess fat, it may be time to try one of the new, modern techniques of liposuction. With a newly shaped body, you will feel better about yourself. For a procedure like liposuction, you need to see the best, so call Dr. Barbara Siwy of Carmel and Bloomington, Indiana for a consultation appointment. Call her today and feel better about yourself!
Thanks to great strides in modern medicine, plastic surgery is safer and more advanced than ever. Many women feel self-conscious of their breasts, especially later in life. Breast augmentation surgically places implants into the breast tissue to alter the shape, size or fullness of the breasts. This procedure can help you restore confidence in your body.
Before your surgery, you should take several important steps. At least two weeks before your surgery, you should stop smoking completely. The chemicals in cigarettes will greatly complicate your healing process. You should also stop taking any blood-thinning medications and supplements. You will be under anesthesia, meaning you will be unable to drive after the procedure. You should have someone lined up to drive you to and from your surgery and stay with you for the first 24 hours afterward. At least a week before surgery, you should stop drinking alcohol. Take a shower the day of your augmentation, and be sure not to apply any lotions, creams or deodorants.
The breast augmentation procedure begins with general anesthesia to sedate you during the surgery. Incisions are made either around the nipple, under the breast or in the armpit. The location of the incisions depend on the kind of implant used and the degree of enlargement desired. The implant itself can be placed either in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. The incisions is are closed with sutures which are layered throughout the tissue. Visible results are immediate.
Someone will need to stay with you for the first 24 hours after you get out of surgery. You should only walk with assistance, and try to rest as much as possible. You should not go to the bathroom alone the first night. The first four days of recovery will be the most uncomfortable. From there, your wounds will begin to heal and any swelling will begin to go down. Most patients’ recoveries take about 4-6 weeks.
