Everyone wants to look attractive. Looking good makes a person feel better also. Nowadays, more men and women are opting for body contouring and liposculpting. As a result, liposuction has become the most popular form of cosmetic surgery performed today. According to a recent survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), there has been a remarkable rise in the number of liposuction procedures in the US. The most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the United States is now liposuction.
Nowadays, with the advent of modern surgical techniques, the doctors are opting for laser liposuction procedure. These are well suited for people who have relatively normal weight, but have isolated pockets of fat in certain areas in their bodies. The localized fat makes a body look disproportionate. These are generally inherited traits and do not respond to exercise or dieting. Hence, the only way to get rid of these excessive cellulites is liposuction.
A person can opt for this method at any age. However, for getting the best result, the doctors advise to go for this cosmetic surgery at an earlier age. If the skin has enough elasticity, then a smooth contour is achieved after the removal of the fat. In older people, the skin becomes inelastic, so it may not re-drape well after the surgery. In those cases a skin tightening procedure has to be done.
Liposuction can be done for contouring the localized excess fat in- upper arms, cheeks, neck and jaws, breast or chest areas, abdomen and waist, hips and buttocks, back, inner and outer thighs, inner knee, calves and ankles, and so on. Nowadays, men are also opting for this cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks. Sometimes the teenage and adult males suffer from a condition called gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement. They opt for liposuction to get cured from this disease. This particular surgery can be performed on several areas of the body at the same time. It can also be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures like acne laser treatment, blepharoplasty, botox, earlobe repair, eyelid rejuvenation, and so on.
