Don’t Let These Common Misconceptions Keep You From Liposuction

Liposuction isn’t a nasty, undignified word. In fact, liposuction is one of the more commonly performed procedures in the United States as well as globally. This may surprise you, as there are many misconceptions about liposuction floating around in social circles. Here’s a few misconceptions you may have been told about liposuction.

It Will Help You Lose Weight
Liposuction is often referred to as a procedure designed to help patients lose weight. In fact, with liposuction you may only lose up to five pounds after a liposuction procedure is performed. Liposuction typically works best in patients who are closer to healthy weight range already and would like to reduce localized fat pockets.

It Will Remove Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are scars that form right under the top most layer of skin. Stretch marks may fade, but they never truly go away.

It Will Eliminate Cellulite
Cellulite is caused when fibers pull down on the skin and fat pushes against the skin. While there are things that will help reduce cellulite, liposuction will not get rid of it. It will help with the amount of fat pushing against the skin, but it does nothing for the fibers that pull down on the skin.

These are a few of the misconceptions that many have about liposuction surgery, which can lead to depressing results if not addressed before the procedure. However, these misconceptions don’t need to stop you from receiving this beneficial, cosmetic procedure.

Despite the fact that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, it can help eliminate fatty areas that are difficult to get rid of even with regular exercise. Mostly used in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back, this procedure helps fine tune those areas you’ve been targeting but had little success with.  Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, altering the shape of the body.

What to Expect Before and After Your Mommy Makeover

If you’ve recently given birth and you are having a difficult time getting rid of the “mom body,” a mommy makeover may be something to consider. With a mommy makeover, the goal is to restore the shape and appearance of your body back to what it was like before childbearing. Usually completed in one procedure, a mommy makeover can consist of breast enhancements – augmentation, lift, or reduction – a tummy tuck, liposuction, buttock augmentation, and vaginal rejuvenation.

When considering a mommy makeover, there are several factors to take into consideration and/or speak with your doctor about before performing the procedure. Some of those factors are as follows:

  • Desired amount of restoration
  • Placement of incisions
  • Type of implant used
  • Current medical health
  • Realistic expectations
  • You are finished with childbearing
  • Cost

Cost is always something to consider when thinking of undergoing any type of augmentation or enhancement. Depending on your specific procedure, cost may include:

  • Medical tests and/or X-rays
  • Implants
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Post-surgery garments

Although the procedure itself is typically done in one sitting, there is the recovery phase that follows that depends on body type as well as the different types of surgery performed. Here are somethings to plan for after the procedure.

  • Caregiver – You’ll want to take some time to rest for at least the first twenty-four hours after the procedure. During this period, you may feel weak or nauseous and it’s helpful to have someone help you move around.
  • Childcare – After all, you are a mommy. You may need help with childcare after the procedure is done, anywhere from one to three weeks.
  • Swelling, Bruising, and Pain – All three of these are natural responses to these procedures, and they represent healing. However you will want to have your surgeon’s number on hand in case you notice anything that seems excessive including bleeding and vomiting.
  • Sponge Baths – Until your pads or gauze is removed, sponge baths are recommended for the first three to five days after surgery. This will also help reduce raising your arms too high, as this can put extra stress on the breast muscles.

This is not an all-inclusive list, but they are things to consider and expect after your mommy makeover. Rest assured, with Dr. Kadz, a board certified surgeon with over 20 years of experience, you are in good, professional hands that will make this procedure as seamless as possible.

The Benefits of Breast Lifts

Your body is a work of art. When it comes to your masterpiece, you have a right to know the safe and effective options to help you look and feel your best! If you’re considering a breast lift surgery, you’ll be happy to know that the risk is low and the benefits are plenty! Let’s take a look.

Improved Breast Shape
There are so many reasons that your breasts may be irregularly shaped. Perhaps you’re still improving your shape after pregnancy, maybe it’s simply gravity and age. Either way, a breast lift is a safe process for getting the exact curves you want.

Desirable Areola Size
A common occurrence among women is an areola that is stretched or disproportionate. In order to fix this, the breast lift procedure changes the size and shape of your areola to your desired look.

Nipple Location
Gravity takes a heavy toll on the body the more time goes by. When breasts begin to droop, it’s possible for your nipples to fall below the breast crease, especially when unsupported. A breast lift can restore your breasts to a perky shape with the nipples back where you want them.

Symmetric Breasts
Undergoing a growth spurt during puberty or uneven estrogen levels are only two of many reasons why your breasts may lack symmetry. Evening your breast shape through surgery is an easy way to resolve this common asymmetric occurrence!

The last benefit, but maybe most important, is a boosted self-image. Lifting your confidence can be as simple as lifting your breasts. A breast lift might be exactly what you need to feel comfortable in your skin and proud of your curves.

A Safe Procedure
The breast lift procedure was revolutionized in 2002 and 2007 when surgeons discovered safer ways to operate on breasts. With continual improvements in the procedure every year, it’s safer than ever!

Getting the Best Results
As with any medical procedure, there are some risks when going under the knife. However, these risks are drastically reduced when you work with an experienced and qualified board-certified surgeon like Dr. Kadz.
