Liposuction surgery is the art of sculpting the body by removing excess fat in areas that are undesirable. Liposuction is the gold standard to permanently remove fat. The finesse of liposuction has improved tremendously over the years but the core essence is to provide aesthetic body contouring. Liposuction remains the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure and one of the popular procedures sought from our practice.
How Is Liposuction Performed?
The Ayim Aesthetic Brand is built on body contouring, liposculpt, and 360-liposuction which shape the body into youthful appearance. Liposuction is performed using a technique called tumescent liposuction which essentially uses local anesthesia fluid to numb the area to be liposuction. Tumescent liposuction allows the procedure to be performed while awake or lightly sedated and we use small cannulas to provide smooth results.
Both women and men seek liposuction to improve their appearance; however, it is not a substitute for exercising or healthy lifestyle.
Where Can You Get Liposuction?
There are many areas of the body where liposuction can be performed, including:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Love handles
- Bra Rolls
One increasingly popular demand is for the harvested fat to be transferred to other areas of the body (fat grafting or fat transfer) that have experienced volume depletion or need augmentation.
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a common request which involves transferring the fat liposuctioned from other areas of the body into the buttocks to augment its appearance. This technique is performed with great caution, given its popularity with some celebrities and its heavy social media presence.
Other body areas clients seek fat grafting are the face, back of hands, or dimpled areas that need volume restoration.
Recovery and Aftercare
Typically, liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day of your surgery. It is important to note that you should arrange for someone to drive you home after your procedure.
During the first couple days of recovery, you will likely experience some pain, swelling, and/or soreness. Dr. Ayim may prescribe medication to help you deal with the pain. You may be asked to wear a compression garment for some time as well.
After one to two weeks, you should start to feel less pain and soreness in the areas where you had your procedure. Typically, you can return to work about two weeks after getting liposuction; however, since every patient is different, you should talk to Dr. Ayim about the right time to resume your normal daily activities after your surgery.
Usually, at the six week mark, most bruising, swelling, and pain should subside, and you should be able to see your final results. If you have any questions about the recovery process, do not hesitate to ask Dr. Ayim.
Cost of Liposuction
The cost of liposuction depends on a few things, including the area or areas that are being treated, the amount of fat removed, the length of the surgery, and other various factors. If you have any questions about cost or financing, be sure to ask about it during your consultation with Dr. Ayim.
