Liposuction is a  surgical procedure that  involves  removing excess fat  from different areas of the body by  means  of  a small  incision  accompanied by  vacuum  suction . At Clearview Liposuction  the  Toronto  patients undergo their surgical liposuction procedure . When considering a  Liposuction , the Clearview  Toronto facility will discuss the changes that you  would  like  to make in  your appearance and explain the options  available to  you, the steps of the procedure  and the different types  of Liposuction option available, the risks and limitations . Liposuction is performed using a tool called a cannula tube, removing stubborn fat  from  isolated  areas  and  helping to reshape the area  in the process.

If you find that your abdomen is a real trouble area, you may want consider an Abdominoplasty procedure (tummy tuck) instead of the liposuction procedure.

Common Reasons for Liposuction

Liposuction is not a viable solution for someone trying to lose a significant amount of weight. However, it is a valuable treatment if your body weight is relatively stable, but you have excess body fat in certain areas that make them look out of proportion.

Here are some common areas of the body that respond well to liposuction treatments:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips and thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Chest and neck
  • Upper and lower back
  • Calves and ankles

Liposuction Benefits

*Individual Results May Vary

Since liposuction is often performed on areas that won’t respond to traditional exercise and diet changes, the benefits tend to be psychological as well as cosmetic. Some of the most common benefits include:

  • Improved body image and self-esteem
  • Removal of unwanted, stubborn fat deposits
  • Smoother-looking skin and less dimpling in treated areas
  • Improved body symmetry and balance

Quick Facts About Liposuction

  • Liposuction doesn’t require an overnight stay, but follow-up visits are necessary to monitor your recovery
  • Patients should plan on taking one week off work, two weeks off light exercise and four to six weeks off strenuous exercise after the procedure
  • Scarring is only visible where the cannula tube is inserted under the skin, but fades in time
  • Fat cells that are removed via liposuction won’t come back, but it’s still important to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain a healthy weight
  • Compression garments must be worn over the liposuction sites for up to six weeks
