There are so many forms of liposuction on the market here in Newport Beach and elsewhere. So how do you know which procedure is the right one for you? Here are a few important things to keep in mind when choosing a liposuction procedure:
- Don’t be fooled by new technology: Newer techniques do not mean better results. In fact, the majority of plastic surgeons and patients alike seem to prefer the tried and true tumescent liposuction procedure that’s been around for years. Most will agree that tumescent liposuction is the gold standard by which other fat removal techniques are measured. Surgical liposuction procedures, no matter what they’re called are not that different overall. The main difference is their approach to the treatment of the fat prior to its removal.
- Choose the plastic surgeon, not the equipment: The success of your liposuction will rest predominately upon the skill and experience of the plastic surgeon performing the liposuction. You should worry if any professional spends their time and energy telling you why the machine they are going to use is so important to your outcome. The best equipment means nothing when it isn’t used properly.
- Familiarize yourself with client reviews and procedure ratings: Testimonials are priceless. Talk to other you know in Newport Beach who you know have had the procedure. When in doubt, see what other people who have had various types of liposuction have to say online. Sites like realself.com also give certain procedures, including liposuction, “worth it ratings” which will give you an idea of which are the most popular with liposuction seekers. RealSelf reviews can also give you a good idea of how painful each approach is, the length of the procedure, and the amount of recovery time involved.
