Body Sculpting – Liposuction

Body sculpting is not just about being lean, but to get the most out of your body, you should be able to tone it up too. There are many factors that need to be considered, when going for liposuction. These factors include weight and height, health issues, skin type and also the general appearance of the body. Before you start on any surgery you will have to first consult with your surgeon, he will check your current health, and his opinions on how best to achieve the results you are looking for. After this consultation is complete, you can then start planning your surgery date.

For people who are looking to do body sculpting in Atlanta there are several options available for them. You can go for either a chin tuck or a tummy tuck depending on how big your tummy is and whether you have any loose skin in the abdominal area. The main difference between the two is that a tummy tuck takes out most of the excess fat and muscle in the lower abdomen. Whereas a chin tuck will leave some skin and some of the muscle in place.

Once you have your chosen procedure done and your general appearance has been assessed you will be given an anaesthetic. This will ensure that the recovery period is as painless and minimal as possible. During this time your surgeon will work on the areas of the body that you are working on. He may also take measurements of the area, such as your waist and hip circumference. He will then be able to tailor his operation to your body, based on these measurements and the results he has come up with.

After this the general surgeon will take out the excess tissue and will cut into your skin to remove it. This can be a fairly intense procedure, so you should consider doing your recovery at home. This way you can rest in a recliner with a cold compress on your tummy to help with any soreness, after the operation.

It is important that you rest from the surgery, especially if you had to have a recovery period before your surgery, so that the stitches can heal properly and you do not get further injury during the recovery period. You should not take painkillers, and you should stay off the medication for a few days afterwards. Your surgeon may decide that you need a minor surgery to remove some of the scar tissue around the incisions and tighten the skin. The reason for this is that the wound will heal much more quickly if there is some tissue left on it. If you do not have a lot of scar tissue left you may have to wait a few months before you can do some more work on it, although it is unlikely that you would have to have a major work done.

During your post-surgery body sculpting – liposuction recovery period you may feel pain around the incisions but this is normal, and it is quite manageable. You may also need to drink more fluids and it is always wise to take painkillers in order to make sure that you are well during this time. If you start feeling uncomfortable, do not hesitate to call your surgeon straightaway, as it could mean that there is more work that needs to be done on your skin, or that your tummy tuck needs to be reversed.
