Liposuction has the unique ability to remove the unwanted subcutaneous fat you specify carefully without adversely affecting other areas

For example, if you find that the only aesthetic concern is the bulging fat on your stomach or thighs, and you’re satisfied with the rest of your body, then liposuction may be your most effective solution to create a contour that is smoother, leaner and more visually appealing.


How to create a leaner body contour with more muscular definition

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that eliminates unwanted subcutaneous fat on your face, neck and body.
Liposuction (sometimes called suction-assisted lipectomy, fat suction, blunt suction lipectomy, liposculpture or lipoplasty) is a surgical technique that removes localized collections of fatty tissue that lie just underneath the skin (subcutaneous adipose tissue) from a patient’s body. Small incisions are made to allow for the insertion of an aspiration cannula in order to suction fat cells out of the body.

Liposuction reduces fat cell count through suction as well as controlled cellular damage. This damage is caused by moving the cannula within the fat deposits, breaking them up. The fat is then removed while some is absorbed back into the body over six to twelve weeks following surgery. Patients should expect to wait for several weeks before the full benefits of their treatment become apparent for this reason.

The benefits of liposuction, also known as lipoplasty and liposculpture, are numerous

  • Recontour your neck.
  • Get rid of upper arm fat.
  • Eliminate bulging in your mid-section.
  • Smooth down bulges in your back.
  • Give your waist more definition.
  • Slim down your thighs.
  • Redefine your calves and ankles.

You deserve to be comfortable with your body.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR LIPOSUCTION??

Candidates who should consider liposuction are men and women who have stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise regimens. The most common spots for these fat deposits are on the arms, abdomen, thighs, love handles, back, and the neck. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and the best candidates should be in a relatively healthy and fit state, near their ideal body weight.

Candidates should have a stable weight and should have lost some weight before the surgery. Patients with a stable weight can achieve permanent results with liposuction, but those who have unstable or fluctuating weight may not.

Liposuction & Body Contouring Toronto

There are other physical traits that ensure a patient will achieve the best possible results. A good candidate for liposuction has elastic and fairly firm skin that will be able to shrink and regain its shape after fat tissue is removed.

SSkin loses elasticity with age, and with pregnancy, and may not be able to adjust to a new, slimmer contour after liposuction. However, patients of any age whose skin is still fairly elastic can achieve good results with liposuction.

It is important to note that liposuction works only to remove fat that is directly under the skin, or subcutaneous fat. Many people who are overweight have visceral, interior fat that liposuction cannot remove. Therefore, people who are overweight, who want to lose weight, and who have mostly internal fat are not good candidates for this treatment (they can consider weight-loss surgery such as gastric-bypass). Liposuction also cannot treat cellulite or loose excess skin; other procedures can address these issues.

IMPORTANT ISSUES TO CONSIDER

Many people who are overweight have both subcutaneous and visceral fat, which is fat that is inside the body and around the organs. Only a healthier diet and exercise can diminish visceral fat. Liposuction cannot achieve significant weight loss or make patients healthier.

You will notice some changes to your body’s contour immediately after the liposuction procedure; however, the complete results may take up to six months to become final. This is because the liposuction procedure breaks up and removes some fat, while your body absorbs the rest of the broken fat cells over the weeks following the procedure.

*In order to maintain the results of your liposuction treatment, you must take care of yourself, and continue to balance a healthy diet and exercise to stay at a long-term, stable weight. With this consistent post-operative care, you can expect to enjoy permanent results from your procedure. It is most important to watch your diet during the first four months after surgery. During this time, the areas that were liposuctioned are healing and are very metabolically active – the cells are “hungry”. If you overeat during the first four months, the fat will go back to the treated areas. Keep in mind you don’t need to be on a diet during this time, just don’t overeat (ie pig out).*

Pregnancy and childbirth are completely safe after having liposuction. However, your body will undergo many physical changes during pregnancy, and regaining or staying close to your stable weight afterwards offers the best chance for maintaining the results of your liposuction treatment.

LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE DETAILS

At Edelstein Cosmetic, we offer two types of liposuction: tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction. These liposuction techniques do require local or general anaesthesia depending on the size of the area to be treated and will be discussed with you at the consultation.

With our advanced surgical techniques, there is less blood loss, less unwanted or unintentional tissue damage, and larger areas may be treated than ever before.

During a tumescent liposuction procedure, the doctor first injects a mixture of fluids that work as a local anaesthetic and that prepare the area to be treated. The mixture includes sterile salt water which helps with removing fat, as well a long-acting anaesthetic and epinephrine. Epinephrine constricts blood vessels to reduce blood loss and bruising.
Once the treatment area is prepared, the doctor makes small incisions in the skin and uses a small tube to suction out the fat and fluid mixture. Using this advanced liposuction technique, bleeding and bruising are significantly reduced.

On the other hand, ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasonic waves to treat patients. Applying these waves to an area of the body breaks up the fat cells, allowing targeted fatty tissue to be suctioned from the patient’s body using a small tube. This kind of liposuction is ideal for areas where fat is difficult to remove, such as on the back, love handles, or the male chest area. Ultrasonic liposuction is also appropriate to use on areas that have already undergone liposuction surgery, and is a safe and effective alternative to tumescent liposuction.

RECOVERY AFTER LIPOSUCTION

After your liposuction treatment, you will be wearing a compression garment for six weeks.  For the first three weeks, you wear the garment day and night (you can take it off to shower);  for the next three weeks (weeks 3 to 6), you only wear the garment during the day.  You will not be able to return immediately to your busy schedule. However, following post-operative care instructions from your doctor can help speed up recovery and avoid complications, so you can get back to your life faster.

Firstly, it is recommended that you take the time to heal.  It is generally recommended that you take one week off work and avoid physical activity for at least two weeks. Taking your medication as prescribed will help control pain and allow you to return to mild aerobic exercise such as walking within seven days.

*Liposuction does result in some swelling and bruising, which can be controlled with ice and heat packs. However, it is important to understand that some swelling may last for several months after the procedure. While you can return to work after a week or so, it will take several more weeks until you feel completely normal.*

Finally, following your doctor’s instructions closely will enable you to heal quicker and begin to see optimal results forming within a few weeks following liposuction treatment. You can expect the results to keep improving over time for a few months after the procedure, as your body absorbs remaining fat cells and settles into its new and improved contour.
