Liposuction has advanced significantly in recent years, with newer, better systems that produce smoother, more attractive results, with a shorter recovery time. If you are living with excess fat that diet and exercise just won’t resolve, consider modern liposuction in Lancaster from Dr. Hu.
Most people believe that they grow fat or shed fat through diet and exercise. While this is how it may seem, you actually have a set number of fat cells, and the number does not change over time. What occurs when you gain (or store) fat, is that the cells simply hold more fat, swelling in size. When you diet and exercise, the fat cells shrink. Unfortunately, the body is genetically programmed to store fat in certain areas. This was a benefit in long-past days when food may have been harder to find – but serves no purpose in the modern world. That’s when our liposuction in Palmdale could be your answer.
Modern liposuction makes it possible to trim away areas of unwanted fat from various body areas, including:
At our plastic surgery clinic, we offer two types of advanced liposuction:
The treatment experience with lipo varies somewhat with the type of procedure. With tumescent liposuction, you will first have the area from which fat is to be extracted numbed, with some minor discomfort as the solution is injected, similar to what you could expect with any injection. Once the area is numbed, small incisions are created into which the liposuction device is inserted, and the fat carefully extracted. You will simply lie back on a comfortable treatment table while the procedure is performed, sedated, and comfortable.
With SmartLipo, the laser treatment device is inserted through tiny incisions, which loosens and melts the fat, so there is less suction needed for extraction, which is easier on the body. You will experience minimal discomfort with this procedure and general anesthesia is not needed.
After your treatment for liposuction in Palmdale, you are free to return home and will need to rest. We provide full aftercare instructions, so you recover as quickly and smoothly as possible. It is normal to expect some initial discomfort, but you will have prescription pain medication to get your comfortably through the first stage of recovery. As the days pass, swelling reduces, bruising fades, and your body begins to reveal its new, sculpted contour.
