Want To Treat Stubborn Fat?

You have been religious about your diet for years. You spend the requisite amount of time in the gym. Unfortunately, there are still areas of your body that seem immune to whatever you do. Some of it may be genetic and some of it is just related to the natural aging process. Whether you need to remove that resistant fat in your neck, abdomen, love handles, or inner thighs, a liposuction in Boston can be the solution.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction was introduced to the United States in the 1980s. The procedure was designed to remove stubborn fat from the chin, neck, abdomen, love handles, underarms, hips, and inner thighs. As suggested by the name, this procedure sucks the fat out of your target area.

As the liposuction removes the fat cells, it is a permanent solution. The total number of fat cells in your body is determined during adolescence and unlike other cells, they do not replicate. This means once the fat is gone, it’s gone unless you gain a significant amount of weight.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that requires an anesthetic. Your target areas are identified and outlined on the skin with a marker. A small incision is made, and a cannula (tube with suction) is inserted and attached to a powerful vacuum. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up your fat and then remove it via vacuum suction.

What Is Recovery Like After Liposuction?

Once the surgery is complete, you will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks. This garment is designed to ensure that you have limited swelling and to help maintain the desired body contours. You may also have drains in the target areas to remove any excess body fluids or blood. 

You will be provided antibiotics to prevent any possible infection from developing and pain medications, as well as clear, detailed instructions on cleaning the area and maintaining the bandages properly. Depending on the amount of fat removed, you may need follow-up treatments to further tighten the skin of the target area.
