Liposuction Is a Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedure
Liposuction is a common cosmetic surgery. It removes fat from the body and can improve a person’s look. The procedure is popular with women who want to reduce their love handles. While the procedure is not without risks, it does not appear to contribute to obesity. Currently, liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in the United States. While some people have negative reactions to the procedure, it does have a few advantages.
Unlike other surgical procedures, liposuction is usually an outpatient procedure. Patients can visit a doctor’s office, ambulatory surgery center, or hospital. During this procedure, there is no need to stay overnight in a hospital. In many cases, patients can undergo liposuction without the use of a sedative or general anesthesia. In the case of large areas of fat, a general anesthetic is used. In extreme cases, a local anesthetic is also used to control pain.
The process of liposuction is simple and safe. It requires a minimal amount of recovery time. A doctor can use either local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. You may need to be on medication for two weeks before the procedure. This can help reduce your risk of infection and make the procedure more comfortable. In addition to these risks, liposuction may also be dangerous for people with heart conditions, blood clotting disorders, or pregnancy.
