Obesity is an increasing problem in the U.S. as people get less exercise and eat unhealthy diets with excessive calorie counts. Beyond leading to other health problems such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity also saps a person’s self-esteem.
If an obese person decides to make some serious lifestyle changes, he or she can get down to a more natural body weight. But certain spots on the body, no matter how much a person exercises, stubbornly hold onto their fat. These are the thighs, hips, buttocks, and upper arms. Liposuction is a solution to these fatty spots.
During liposuction, tiny incisions are made and a suction tube is inserted to suck out the fat. Patients are given a local anesthetic prior to the procedure to eliminate pain, but some bruising and soreness is inevitable. The procedure is very safe.
At Nowak Aesthetics, our liposuction procedures will take up to two hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. You can return to work within a few days and get back to all of your normal activities within two weeks.
