There are many reasons why people get liposuction but if you
are undecided you should not let the thought of scarring put you off getting
the procedure. Liposuction scars can and do occur, but they are generally minimal.
Indeed one of the most attractive aspects of liposuction surgery is the fact
that the cuts and incisions made are usually so tiny that the scarring effect
is extremely small and inconsequential.
People choose to get liposuction in order to remove specific
areas of fat that are causing problems. The main areas are with fatty deposits
in the stomach abdominal region, the waist (love handles), and the chest and
chin fat. Many people also have the treatment on their legs and arms in order
to remove flab. If these fatty deposits refuse to disappear despite countless
hours exercising in the gym and diet regimes then you can turn to cosmetic
liposuction surgery in order to finally remove the area, or areas of fat that are
causing the distress. As it has been proven many times appearance does have an
effect on your own self esteem and confidence. If you look good you will feel
good and it will show through in how you present yourself to others. For that
reason liposuction should be seriously considered if you are unhappy with fatty
areas on your body.
Don't let the thought of scar damage put you off the
treatment. As stated, liposuction scars are minimal, and the procedure is generally
fast and risk free. However, some liposuction scarring does take place. The level of
scarring depends on a number of factors. Notably the main factors are the surgeon's
skill and technique, and the individual patient's genetics in relation to
his/her tendency to scar. More visible
scarring can take place and has an increased frequency when larger liposuction cannulas
are used during the procedure to remove the excess fat.
Fortunately even when using the larger cannulas in the surgery most of the scarring is so miniscule that it is virtually invisible to the naked eye. Also the surgeon should strategically locate an area on the body where the incision can take place so that the liposuction scar cannot easily be seen. In addition over time the liposuction scars will begin to fade until they are hardly noticeable.
