We try our hardest to maintain a healthy diet and to eat the right foods to achieve the body we want. Unfortunately, due to reasons beyond our control, there are often annoying deposits of fat that don’t seem to go away no matter what we do. These fat deposits take an otherwise healthy and toned body and make it look worse than it is.
Thankfully there is a solution to getting rid of this fat: Liposuction. Liposuction in Austin is a popular method of fat reduction that is perfect as the final step in a transformed body. It is also a versatile treatment which can be done through surgery or as the non-invasive SmartLipo™ option. Both of these options are available in our Aspira Plastic Surgery Austin office.
Why Choose Liposuction in Austin?
Liposuction is a time-tested and proven way to remove unwanted fat pockets in your body. Fat cells have an annoying trait of sticking around a long time. In fact, unless they’re actively killed or removed, fat cells never truly go away. This is the main reason why so many people who lose significant amounts of weight put it back on so easily.
Liposuction prevents the return of fat by removing the fat cells from your body, preventing them from swelling up and making you bigger. Fortunately, liposuction in Austin isn’t only one procedure; you have two different options to choose from.
Traditional Liposuction: This version of the procedure is a full surgical process with outstanding results. Anesthesia will be used in the treated area, so you’ll need to set aside some time for recovery, it might help to secure a ride to and from the procedure as well. Dr. Erella will insert a small wand, called a cannula, into the stomach and suck out the fat through a vacuum. After the fat is gone, the doctor will tighten up the skin around the treated area to complete the tighter look.
SmartLipo™: SmartLipo™ is a lighter, non-invasive version of liposuction. The recovery time is much less, the side effects are more manageable and there is less of a chance of damage to the surrounding tissue. The doctor will begin the process by using a laser to heat the fat deep in the skin, causing it to liquefy. Then, a vibrating cannula will be inserted into the area, causing the fat to separate further and ease in the vacuuming process.
Finding the Right Liposuction in Austin for You
There are a few things you should consider when deciding which liposuction is best for you. One of the largest contributing factors is how much time you have for recovery. If you’re able to spend a lot of time recovering, you might want to opt for the full liposuction surgery, however, if you only have a handful of days, the SmartLipo™ option may be best.
It also helps to know what your beauty goals are. Traditional liposuction will remove more fat deposits, but SmartLipo™ utilizes a heating laser which removes the fat but also tightens the skin as well.
