10 Jan Liposuction 101: What to Expect
Will Liposuction Help to Regain my Pre-Pregnancy Figure?
It is no secret that a woman’s body goes through a multitude of changes both during and after pregnancy, with the most visible of which being the added inches gained around the waistline. While many Hollywood A-listers make losing the pounds appear effortless, they often follow a fitness regime that would push even an elite athlete to their limits.
Of course, not every woman has the benefit of being able to commit to an intense fitness plan – nor the funds to employ a full time trainer, dietitian, and nanny. Entering motherhood, regardless of whether this is your first, second or third baby, is no easy task and suffering from a lack of confidence in your appearance doesn’t help matters.
That is why many new mothers seek a Liposuction (also referred to as Lipoplasty or Liposculpture) procedure in order to return to their pre-pregnancy figure.
But is it right for you? Here, we look into what you can expect from the procedure and how you can take your first steps to a natural-looking, slender body shape.
What Are You Expecting from a Liposuction Procedure?
Before deciding whether to pursue liposuction, it is important to note that the procedure yields the best results with a combination of a healthy diet and exercise – this should not be seen as an alternative. Liposuction is also not the answer for any loose skin that you may have as a result of weight loss. For this, you should consider a skin tightening procedure such as a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) which can form part of a two-stage process.
As well as for fat removal around the abdomen, Liposuction surgery is also highly effective for removing deposits of fat from other problems areas such as the hips and buttocks. Booking a consultation where you can discuss the areas of your body that you would like to target will help you to understand what is and isn’t possible with the procedure.
Liposuction Consultation with Dr Terrance Scamp
In order to assess your suitability for liposuction, you will be invited to our surgery based at Seaworld Drive, Gold Coast for a consultation with Dr Terrance Scamp who will discuss with you what your options are. At your consultation, Dr Scamp will run through the various variations to conventional liposuction, helping you to make an informed decision as to how you would like to proceed.
Furthermore, the surgery also offers a complimentary car service which will pick you up from the Brisbane metro area free of charge if necessary, bringing you straight to the Marina Mirage practice on the Gold Coast.
Aftercare and Recovery Times
While you should expect to wear a snug pressure garment for between six and 12 weeks to aid the skin’s recovery and to ease any swelling, you can return to work within one or two weeks, depending on the nature of your profession.
To arrange your consultation, please call the surgery direct on (07) 5539 1000, or alternatively, you can send a message via our website’s contact page here.
