I Lost Weight But Can’t Get Rid Of All Of The Fat. Now What?
Losing weight is a real mental and physical game. And although you may start to see the numbers drop on the scale, sometimes you may still not get the results that you want— no matter how much kale you eat and abdominal crunches you do. If you have recently lost a lot of weight but still have some stubborn, unwanted fat to show for it, you are not alone. To get rid of that excess fat, you have several options. You can either deal with it, you can hope that it goes away, or you can get the help of our staff at Plastic Surgery Associates.
Ultrasonic liposuction isn’t just a surgical treatment for those that are vain. In fact, liposuction, in general, gets a bad rap. As a safe and effective procedure, ultrasonic liposuction is primarily popular amongst patients of a fairly healthy weight who have stubborn fat they want to get rid of either around their middle section, upper thighs, or buttocks.
During your ultrasonic liposuction procedure, you will be completely sedated. Once you have been properly sedated, one of our doctors will then make small incisions to start the procedure. During this procedure, fatty deposits will be removed with a small tube or needle that’s placed into the fatty tissue and then vacuumed out with a device called a cannula. Once the fat has been suctioned out, you will be stitched up and sent to recovery. In many instances, we will place a drain at the incision site to help drain excess fluid and blood. Make sure that you keep the drain clean at all times to avoid infection.
Having the perfect body isn’t always attainable on your own. Luckily, we at Plastic Surgery Associates are here to help. Do you want to learn more about how you can get rid of excess fat? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Stanley Gulin today at our Naples office. Call us today at 239.596.8000.
