If you have tried every diet and every type of exercise in the books but still can’t shake those last pockets of fat in your body, you may just be the perfect candidate for the liposuction procedure. The minimally invasive surgery literally melts and dissolves, then sucks the fat out from the areas like neck, buttocks, belly, upper arms, thighs, etc., to provide you with an excellent physique. You may also opt for this technique if you are looking to tone down your legs.
We at Artius can provide you with a liposuction treatment to slim down your lower buttocks (also known as the banana rolls), calves, area above your knees, and your inner and outer thighs.
You may get in touch with the team at Artius if you would like to know how leg fat removal surgery works.
At Artius, we perform liposuction procedures by first making tiny incisions in places that can be concealed easily. Then, a cannula (a narrow tube) is inserted through the incision to suction out the dissolved fat with a vacuum device.
But before the surgery, during the diagnosis and consultation session, the surgeon, with your help, will try to determine the course of action after analysing the problem areas and understanding your desires and expectations from the surgery. Then, computer imaging is used to show you how your leg may look after the procedure. As mentioned before, liposuction can help you with buttocks, knees, calves, ankles, and outer and inner thigh fat removal.
But it is crucial to remember that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. So if you are looking to shed a considerable amount of weight, this surgery is not for you. Liposuction is considered ideal for those around 15% to 20% within the optimal body weight. Also, it would be ideal if you generally live a healthy lifestyle or are willing to do so after the procedure. Liposuction is not suitable for smokers because smoking can hinder your healing process and affect the final results.
Liposuction can be of help if you have thick thighs. Our surgeon can help you with the liposuction for your thighs to provide you with more confidence for when you step out in shorts, skirts or tight fit pants. Also, you may want to go for a thigh lift if large amounts of weight loss have left your skin loose.
Liposuction can also help you eliminate the banana roll, a small roll that forms under your buttocks. In addition, it can make the excess fat in your lower legs disappear. So instead of an uneven look, you will end up with an excellent toned physique from your things to your ankles.
But liposuction may be ineffective in toning down your plump calves if you have a genetically large gastrocnemius muscle. The treatment is only made for fat and not the muscles.
Recovery From Leg Liposuction
Mostly, the liposuction is conducted at our clinic as an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day post-procedure. So you’ll be able to recover effectively at your home in familiar surroundings. During the recovery, your doctor will prescribe a compression garment to be worn for around three weeks.
Your surgeon will plan the liposuction recovery process according to the extent of the procedure, along with several other factors like age, ongoing medications, weight, etc. It will take longer for you to recover if you have had surgery on various parts of your leg. There will be tiny incisions, but the surgeon will ensure they are well hidden under your clothes.
We see leg liposuction cases quite rarely. Instead, they are women wanting more toned legs to go along with your slim body.
Although calves are in perfect shape for most men and women, there may be fat deposition hiding toned physique. Liposuction can be excellent in that case. The surgery is also known as lipodystrophy and can reshape your calves.
Calf liposuction only takes up to an hour to complete so that you won’t be at the hospital overnight. Calf and leg fat removal surgery should be performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon. It is performed under local anaesthesia, also known as tumescent anaesthesia.
Who Is Not The Ideal Calf Liposuction Candidate?
If you have had an episode of blood coagulation or possess a tendency of rapid blood clotting, calf or ankle liposuction may not be the proper treatment for you. Also, varicose veins or permanently swollen legs may rule you out.
Post-procedure Care For Leg Liposuction
Your surgeon may advise you to wear compression or pressure garments to be worn for a few months after the leg liposuction. It will help you alleviate the pain and swelling, but you may want to avoid prolonged standing.
Risks Associated With Calf Reduction Liposuction
There is a risk of potential complications associated with the calf liposuctions as with any other surgical procedure. You may have skin bruises and tender legs for a short while. But the persisting complication is the leg oedema, which may linger for a few months.
