You eat right and exercise – that should be enough to look your best, right? While some people are that fortunate, many others choose to have liposuction in Boca Raton from Dr. Steven Schuster or Dr. Daniel Kovacs to achieve their ideal look.
Liposuction, or simply lipo, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps women and men create a more streamlined silhouette. Even those who take good care of themselves often have areas of diet-resistant fat that can knock their self-image down a notch or two. Lipo can help you tighten and tone such areas as the abdomen, hips, thighs and neck.
The Basics – Boca Raton Liposuction
Liposuction is a proven body contouring technique that can help women and men look their best and love the body they're in. Our Boca Raton liposuction patients enjoy many benefits:
- Improved appearance with a slimmer and smoother body contour
- Decreased body fat
- Enhanced body image, helping you feel more comfortable in revealing outfits
- Ability to treat almost any area where unwanted fat exists
Some people think liposuction is a way to lose weight, but this is not the case. As our surgeons tell many of the people who are interested in this surgery in Boca Raton, the procedure is meant to improve body shape, not substitute for a healthful diet. People who are healthy overall are the ideal candidates and are most likely to enjoy their results for the long term.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs use lipo to break up and remove fat through a medical device known as a "cannula." This long surgical wand is able to separate fat from adjacent tissue and suction it out. After recovery is complete, patients are able to enjoy a slimmer, more flattering profile. The duration of this surgery in Boca Raton mostly will depend on how large the treatment area is and how much fat tissue is being removed. Liposuction incisions are generally small for most patients and should be barely noticeable once recovery is complete. Our surgeons offer ultrasonic liposuction (UAL) to help break up fat tissue during the procedure and make it easier to remove.
This surgery can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures. Many women choose liposuction as part of their mommy makeover, which combines tummy tuck or breast augmentation in Boca Raton. It can also help improve the results of an arm lift, tummy tuck or breast enhancement and can be used to tighten the appearance of the cheeks, lower face and neck.
The Doctors Answer Your Questions
Even if you feel a bit self-conscious when you first come in, you'll probably find your consultation to be comfortable and rewarding. We'll take time to get to know you and learn about your lifestyle, and make sure every one of your questions is answered. Here are a few common questions we get about liposuction in Boca Raton.
Can I use liposuction for weight loss?
Liposuction is not a weight loss tool. This procedure is all about body contouring – sculpting those areas of excess fat to improve your body shape. The ideal candidate for liposuction is a person who eats a healthful diet and gets regular exercise.
Will I get permanent results after having liposuction in Boca Raton?
Lipo greatly reduces the number of fat cells in a treated area. You will see your best results if you continue your exercise regimen and healthy eating habits. Because the fat cells have been permanently reduced, if one of our patients gains weight after the liposuction procedure, fat will be distributed to a greater degree in non-treated areas.
How long is the recovery period?
After your procedure, you'll have bruising for a few days and swelling that will last a few weeks, though you should see gradual improvement each day. Most people are ready to return to work in about three to five days but have to put their exercise routine aside for about one week. Your optimal results should be revealed between one to three months after surgery.
