Several factors like unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, and stress can cause fat deposits. Over time, this can affect your daily activities as it can cause physical discomforts. You may also get depressed especially if they do not respond well to diet and exercise. If you’re struggling to burn your body fats, take a look at our liposuction before and after photos to know your treatment options. Liposuction improves your body shape by removing excess fat deposits. Once the swelling goes down, you can achieve a leaner appearance.
The liposuction procedure
During the procedure, our principal surgeon Dr Anh will create small incisions on the target area. Depending on the size and location of the body area, she may use general or local anesthesia. Once your skin is numb, a thin, hollow tube will be inserted into the incision to remove the excess fat. A vacuum is usually used to suck the fat out of the area. Once the desired amount of fat is removed, your surgeon will cover your wound with a dressing.
Ideal candidates for the procedure
Dr Anh Nguyen will assess your condition at her clinic in Perth to come up with a customised treatment plan. This also allows her to determine if you are a good fit for the procedure. In general, you are an ideal candidate if:
- You have stable body weight.
- You have firm and elastic skin.
- You have good muscle tone.
- You have realistic treatment goals.
- You have stubborn fat deposits around your abdomen, hips, thighs, or arms.
Benefits of liposuction
This safe and effective procedure offers the following benefits:
- Improved body contour: The procedure reshapes your body to achieve a leaner appearance.
- Increased self-confidence: The procedure also makes you look better than before. This in turn changes the way you feel about yourself.
When to expect noticeable results
A few days after your procedure, it is normal to feel mild pain and soreness in the treated area. You will need to take pain relievers and anti-inflammatories to address these discomforts. After 1 to 3 months or when the swelling subsides, you should expect a leaner appearance. Of course, this will depend on the extent of the procedure and your desired results.
