So, you are ready to schedule your liposuction procedure. Right now, you are in a Google frenzy trying to learn as much as you can so you can plan your procedure correctly. But before you go down yet another liposuction FAQs rabbit hole, let’s take a pause and simplify things.
With liposuction, you just need to know what you want and what to expect. To that end, here is a really quick guide to planning liposuction.
Knowledge is power, but don’t get overwhelmed. Planning your liposuction can be simple.
Determine Where You Want Fat Removed
Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body. Getting multiple areas done at once rather than over multiple procedures can cut costs and let you just have one recovery period – big benefits. Take stock of all areas you’d like to slim and contour.
Decide if You Want to Put That Fat to Use
Fat transfer can be used to augment the breasts and butt. Are you happy with your chest and bottom? If so, let that fat go. If not, ask your doctor about purifying it for transfer.
Figure Out if It’s Just Fat Bothering You
What many people think are fat rolls end up being excess skin, or even protruding abdominal muscles. While you probably do have excess fat even if these are concerns as well, you need to be sure you have the full story. Liposuction alone won’t correct these; you’ll need skin removal and muscle repair too.
Plan for Your Recovery
Liposuction recovery isn’t too bad on its own but you will be sore and need help at first. If you also get skin removal and a tummy tuck, expect to need even more assistance. Start planning for this period now so you are ready after your procedure.
