Eliminating stubborn fat deposits is the first step in achieving a slimmer figure. But in order to achieve a swimsuit perfect body, people have to strive harder to sculpt problem areas. This could be done by performing rigorous exercises in the gym or by using body sculpting procedures such as liposculpture.
For people who would like to come closer to a picture-perfect body, there are procedures that could help them achieve this. These treatments could compliment weight loss procedures in smoothing edges and shaping the body. Body contouring could be done on hard to target areas such as the neck, thighs, hips and buttocks.
Body contouring treatments eliminates stubborn fats similar to traditional liposuction treatments. Because they are less invasive, these could be used on sensitive areas that liposuction could not reach or too dangerous to use. Tumescent solutions are first used as an anesthesia and prevent bleeding.
Body contouring treatments are not only used for removing stubborn fats but eliminated fat could also be re-injected to less curvier areas for better results. Buttock and breast augmentations for example could be done by introducing fat cells into these areas.
These treatments should not be considered as weight loss procedures that could help people manage their obesity. Body contouring is more suited for helping loose those last stubborn pounds of fats that traditional liposuction are unable to eliminate. Ideal candidates should be within 30 percent of their ideal bodyweight.
Body contouring requires small incisions into the target area where fat cells are to be removed. The type of anesthesia to be used depends on the complexity and risks inherent in the surgery. But treatments are considered as simple surgical procedures where patients could be discharged the same day after the procedure.
Bleeding is a constant danger in any type of surgery. This is why patients are advised to wear compression garments to keep constant pressure on the wound area. Compression garments can also increase the rate of healing. These are used for one to two weeks depending on the wounds. Sutures can be removed after a week and the wounds are assessed for bleeding or infection.
Bruising, redness and tenderness around the tissue areas are normal. This is a direct result of the surgery. Slight pain and discomfort are also common complaints among patients. Massages and medications are done to reduce swelling and promote healing. Swelling disappears after a few hours but could take longer depending on the extent of treatment. Results could be seen a few weeks or a month after body contouring.
Body contouring is not only done to remove cellulite deposits. It is also a cosmetic procedure that could enhance a person’s figure. A few examples include breast implants and abdominoplasty (tummy tucks). Body contouring is just one of the modern cosmetic procedures that could help people achieve a slimmer figure. It could be used in conjunction with exercises and a healthy diet to improve a person’s health and self-esteem.
