If you want to lose weight, and you have no time to exercise or you are just looking for an easier way out, you might want to consider having liposuction. All you need to do is find a reputable clinic and a doctor you can trust; like the professional liposuction in Melbourne from  Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne. But, be sure to schedule a consultation with your doctor and discuss the overall costs.

As you all already know, there are many misconceptions when it comes to liposuction, and those are mostly based on the results that you would have gotten in the past. Because of the cosmetic procedures’ popularity, people have started to take more interest in liposuction. Below you have some of the most interesting facts that you might not even be aware of.

You can even have the size of your breasts reduced with liposuction

  1. This is an old procedure

The first “liposuction” procedure was actually performed way back in the 1920s, and as you might have guessed, the results were not that great. The procedures that we have practiced today came out in 1982 and were perfected by a French surgeon named Dr. Yves-Gerard Illouz. The techniques that they introduced produced better results and were not as risky.

  1. Many different names

The liposuction procedure has been called many things, and you might not even know half of them. For example, you might have read about lipectomy, lipoplasty, liposculpture, or just lipo, and they are all actually the same procedure.

  1. Not a magic procedure

While lipo will remove the undesirable fat that is very difficult to get rid of naturally, it is not a magical procedure that will remove all of the undesirable fat. This procedure is actually meant for those who are close to their ideal weight and have a certain area of fat they can’t get rid of.

This is why liposuction can target different parts of your body. For example, if you have the annoying triceps fat and can’t get rid of it, you can have the expert arm liposuction Melbourne like Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne. Other areas, such as stomach, buttocks, legs and so on, can be targeted as well.

  1. Where does the fat go?

Many people ask this, and there are a lot of answers that do not make sense. Well, the fat that is taken from your body can be used somewhere else, and this you can discuss with your surgeon. For example, you can use the unnecessary fat from your stomach as face filler or even as a buttocks enhancer.

  1. General anesthesia might be required

If the patient is undergoing extensive surgery, then the general anesthesia will be required. This will put the patient into the state of unconsciousness, while if you have a smaller procedure done it will only require the local anesthesia and that will leave you awake. Sometimes, the patients can be asked to stand up during this procedure.

  1. Several months could be needed for the results

Don’t be impatient, because sometimes for you to see the full results of this procedure, you will have to wait a couple of months. This is usually because some patients tend to swell a bit after the procedure, but that should stop being a problem after a month.

Final word

There is probably a lot you still do not know about this procedure, which is why it is advised that you schedule a consultation with your doctor before the procedure. Don’t be shy to ask your doctor anything that is on your mind about the procedure, including the risks and the overall cost.
