Liposuction Is Minimally Invasive
When you have areas of your body that have excess fat, you can visit a plastic surgeon to learn more about liposuction in Palatine. Liposuction is considered a minimally invasive procedure that requires only a tiny incision in the skin and underlying tissues. In many cases, you receive a local painkiller injection before the incision is made, but occasionally, you are sedated for the procedure. Liposuction is available for many regions of the body to remove the fatty tissue that is impossible to get rid of with dieting or exercise.
Evaluating Your Overall Health
The abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks are the most common body areas where this procedure is performed. However, it is also possible to have liposuction in Palatine on the arms, neck, back, or legs as well. The fat removal process is fast, and you will recover quickly due to the small incisions. You may have some bruising or swelling near the incision site, but these problems will disappear in a few days. Our plastic surgeon will evaluate your overall health along with examining your body to determine how liposuction can help you. It is often possible to remove the excess fat with one incision when the body parts are located close together.
A Machine Suctions the Fat
After the incision is made in the skin, our surgeon inserts a hollow glass tube that is attached to a machine that suctions the fat. The fat flows from the tube into a container, and it is possible for you to use this fat for other plastic surgery procedures. Our surgeon will move the hollow tube around to sculpt the body area, and when the procedure is finished, he will stitch the incision.
