Liposuction hobart | robert frank mdFor Hobart residents and people around the country, liposuction is quickly becoming one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures around. And there’s no wonder why. Liposuction offers many benefits to its patients and is a relatively simple surgery to undergo and recover from. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frank has performed hundreds of liposuction procedures while promoting safety and comfort during his 20 years of experience in the Hobart area. Here are 6 benefits of liposuction.
Benefit #1: Liposuction is a Safe Removal of Fat
Perhaps one of the top reasons that liposuction is becoming so popular is that it is such a safe procedure. During liposuction, small incisions are made to your treatment areas, and then a fluid is injected into your body to anesthetize the area and break up the fat cells. After this is completed, a small tube called a cannula is inserted into the incision and suction is applied. What’s removed is a pure form of fat, free of blood. Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure, and patients are usually back on their feet after 2 days of rest.
Benefit #2: Liposuction Permanently Removes Fat Cells
Possibly one of the most favored benefits that Hobart residents have of liposuction is that it permanently removes fat cells in the treatment areas. Once the fat cells are removed, they will not grow back! Keep in mind, though, that just because you lose fat cells in one area of your body, doesn’t mean you can’t gain fat in another area. It’s important after a liposuction procedure to maintain your weight so that you do not gain weight in other areas of your body.
Benefit #3: Fat Loss Can Improve Your Health
We all know the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and body mass index (BMI). Because liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits – about 4lbs or more per treatment area – it can help you move closer to your idea weight and BMI, providing you with overall improved health.
Benefit #4: Liposuction Improves Your Appearance, And The Way Others Perceive You
Despite the efforts of some Hobart residents to first see the beauty that lies within a person, many people in our society judge people by their looks. Unfortunately, if you have unwanted fat on your body, people may use that fact to form negative opinions of you. Liposuction improves your appearance by giving you a more aesthetically appealing physique and changing the ways that others view you.
Benefit #5: Liposuction Can Boost Your Self-Esteem
Many Hobart residents are self-conscious of their bodies and stubborn fatty deposits that they just can’t seem to get rid of. By removing these fat cells and providing patients with a more contoured look, liposuction often provides patients a boost in self-esteem, many times making them feel more confident in their clothing and bathing suits.
Benefit #6: Liposuction Can Remove Fat That Even Diet and Exercise Can’t
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of liposuction is that it is effective at removing stubborn fatty deposits that just won’t go away on their own, no matter how well you eat or how often you work out. In fact, liposuction is often used by people who are healthy eaters and physically active but just can’t seem to drop unwanted fat in certain problem areas like the abdomen, love handles, arms and back rolls.
