IS THE RESULT PERMANENT?
CAN YOU HAVE LIPO IF YOU ARE SLIM?
Thanks to the use of very fine cannulas, liposculpture is well suited to the treatment of areas of low volume in a slim person who is having what are called localised lipodystrophies: the body shape will then be ideally correctly.
AND IF YOU ARE TOO STOUT?
It is currently well established that a stable weight is much better than doing a “yo-yo”, because each time, your weight goes that little bit higher!!!
After a strict diet, a gastroplasty or gastric band, the skin is very loose. If you skin is sagging a great deal, often after losing 20 to 40 kg, the only solution is a skin lift and the significant scarring that goes with it.
THE NEW LIPOSCULPTURE TECHNIQUES, if used before or at the beginning of a diet or significant programmed weight loss, will enable an incomparably better result to be achieved, because the repeated passing of fine cannulas through the skin will trigger a reaction that will see the skin tighten itself again in surprising fashion!!!
Also, recent data shows that hyperthrophied fat cells secrete hormones that tend to call on stores of fat in those areas that are already overdeveloped. This is the reason why it is so difficult to stabilise your weight after a diet; with the slightest reduction in effort, your weight rapidly returns to where it was when you started – or even higher! When a large quantity of these cells is eliminated by liposculpture/liposuction, a much greater weight loss will ensue than the corresponding volume of fat aspirated. This means you will see a significant improvement even in areas not treated with lipo. A suitable diet after the procedure will therefore be much more effective, facilitated by a rapid change in body shape (a major motivation!!!), with much easier weight stabilisation.
HOW OLD DO YOU NEED TO BE TO HAVE LIPO?
You need to be an adult to be able to decide whether you want to have cosmetic surgery. Also, your body shape will continue to go through major changes until you are eighteen. In addition, if you have an area of your body that is abnormally large, such as your outer thigh, whereas the top of your body is slim, no diet will have any effect on this area being affected by hormones! In this case, liposculpture is the only radical solution. So there is no point in waiting and enduring embarrassment for years on end.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
Anyone in good health can undergo liposculpture, all the more so under local anaesthetic. A medical examination may be necessary before taking the decision to have surgery.
