Fast Recovery Liposuction Procedure

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on October 1, 2013

Cardio exercise and weight lifting have many benefits; everyone feels better after a good workout. Pilates and yoga are great for toning and stretching, and help to calm the nervous system, reducing stress.
Try as we might, however, areas such as the love handles, the inner thighs, and the back can be hard to target, and thus slow to respond to exercise. The lack of fitness in these areas may also be the result of genetics rather than overeating or lack of a fitness regimen.

A Positive Solution

It is quite discouraging to keep exercising, just to find there is hardly any improvement. This may be more than discouraging; it may eat away at one’s self esteem. For the healthy patient who has come within ten pounds of their optimal weight, liposuction can be a terrific complement to their healthy lifestyle.

The History

Liposuction has been performed since the 1982, when it was introduced by Doctor Yves-Gerard Illouz, a French physician. American plastic surgeons, like Doctor Bernabe Vazquez of Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery, have been perfecting their techniques to provide the safest and best outcome for their patients. The 30 years of improvements have resulted in more fat being removed with less loss of blood, less discomfort, and far less risk.

Years of Experience

Board certified plastic surgeons such as Doctor Vazquez, who are affiliated with some of the most prestigious colleges and organizations in the industry, have the proven experience needed to perform liposuction on each specific patient.

Special Techniques

Depending on the specific area and body type, Doctor Vazquez will select either the S.A.F.E method of liposuction, or Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction.

The former method stands for fat separation, fat aspiration and fat equalization. This type of liposuction is perfect for circumferential treatment in areas such as the thighs and the torso. The S.A.F.E. liposuction procedure allows a skilled plastic surgeon to contour the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, neck, calves, and ankles.

A healthy candidate for this surgery will have localized fat deposits which, when removed, will look smoother due to the fat equalization technique.

With Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction, ultrasonic waves are used to target fat cells. This method creates much less damage to nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. This method also yields a smooth skin surface and is most often successful when used on fibrous areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or back.

The recovery from liposuction is relatively fast; patients can typically return to work within one week of the procedure. Patients will need to wear compression garments for anywhere from four to six weeks to aid with the healing process.

When performed by an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, this fast recovery liposuction procedure yields a contoured, slimmer, and more confident gal or guy.
