It’s time to get off the merry-go-round and step into a time of true change. Your body can look how you imagine it even if your lifestyle changes have left something to be desired. If your weight is stable but you want a little more slimming in a certain area or areas, liposuction may be the ideal solution to jump to your end-goal. Using the tumescent liposuction technique, it is possible to avoid the need for general anesthesia in most cases. Recovery from this procedure is also relatively short. Many patients are able to return to work within a few days. there will still be residual swelling and bruising, but comfort is significantly improved for day to day activities.
Liposuction is the procedure that is performed to reduce localized fatty deposits. Alone, this surgery can reduce waist circumference and flatten the midsection. That is unless the abdominal muscles have become extensively lax. When this has happened, as it may during pregnancy or as a result of weight gain, the way to restore tautness to the midsection is to reconnect muscle tissue. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is the approach Dr. Shaffer takes when a patient wants to be able to enjoy seeing toned abdominal muscles. Recovery may last a week or two, but results can last many years with good lifestyle habits.
