Some people find that substantial fat deposits do not go away even with exercise and diet. However, large volume liposuction can target such stubborn deposits of fat to give them the shapely figure they have always desired. Large volume liposuction should not be used as the principal weight loss means, but it boosts such efforts and helps to foster confidence in achieving a goal. The procedure can actually serve to improve overall health.
What Happens During High Volume Liposuction?
A patient undergoing large volume liposuction is put under a preselected type of anesthesia before the procedure starts. The areas targeted for fat removal are then worked on while the patient is sedated. During the procedure, a very narrow, hollow instrument is inserted into the area of treatment. Stubborn fat in the treatment areas is then broken down and drawn out of the body through specialized processes. Round the clock monitoring and care are provided during the large volume liposuction procedure to ensure safety and comfort.
How Much Fat Can I Expect to Lose?
Large volume liposuction is a procedure that involves removing quite a bit of fat from the treated area of the body. A patient can actually go down several sizes from one treatment. However, size difference before and after the procedure is determined by the location of the fat, as well as other factors that may or may not be controllable. Patients typically see dramatic improvement immediately after the treatment, with results continuing to improve throughout their recovery time.
Am I a Candidate for Large Volume Liposuction?
This procedure must not be used as the main weight loss technique. To be a candidate for large volume liposuction, you must be in good overall health with no unmanaged medical conditions. You must also be at a stable weight for a set amount of time. Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results. Of course, results vary from patient to patient.
