Liposuction was last year’s most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedure. According to recent figures by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction went up by 16.3 percent in 2013 from 2012. What are the reasons behind liposuction’s soaring popularity? Let’s explore them!
- The results of liposuction are permanent. The fat cells that are suctioned out from certain body areas will not return following liposuction. However, this is often misunderstood by patients who do not make an effort to change their diet and engage in regular activity following liposuction. Although fat cells may not return on the area being treated, there is still the chance that fat will accumulate in untreated areas.
- Liposuction can be used in many areas of the body where fat improves overall appearance. Liposuction can be used to refine and improve the appearance of the waist, flanks, upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, chest, and back. Chest liposuction is also becoming increasingly popular among men with abnormal breast enlargement (gynecomastia).
- Newer techniques in liposuction have been introduced. Advances in the procedure have made it less invasive yet more effective. Gone are the weeks of severe bruising that accompanied the early forms of the procedure.
