Did you know there are ways to improve your body contouring results, even before liposuction in Brandon, FL? Double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Shienbaum, typically uses the VASER liposuction technique because of its more efficient process and premiere results. But how can YOU help? Here are some tips of how to prepare for liposuction.

Be Close to Your Goal Weight

Many patients think of liposuction as a weight loss procedure – it is not! VASER Liposuction in Tampa, FL, is a body contouring procedure, ideal for individuals who struggle with extra fat. The best results from liposuction generally come from patients who are around 10 pounds away from their goal weight. Additionally, liposuction focuses on the layer of fat beneath the skin, which is responsive to diet and exercise. Most surgeons recommend you do everything you can on your own, and look at liposuction to eliminate problem areas.

Focus on Pockets of Fat

Now you’ve been working hard at the gym and sticking to a healthy diet plan, but the small bulge of fat on your lower abdomen has not gone away. What is your next step? Liposuction by a board-certified plastic surgeon! VASER Lipo in Riverview efficiently targets and sculpts away deep pockets of fat, commonly seen in the abdomen, thighs, flanks, or love handles.

The Final Touch – Extra Skin

Although advanced technology with VASER has improved skin quality after liposuction, patients generally have sagging or extra skin, especially on the abdomen for women after pregnancy. It may be difficult to find that skin restricts to your smaller body size.

The result of liposuction also depends on the quality and quantity of your skin. If you have extra skin before liposuction, there will just be more loose skin after the procedure. Make sure you follow post-operative instructions and wear a liposuction compression garment if necessary. Also, Dr. Shienbaum offers several skin correction procedures, such as a tummy tuck or body lift after weight loss, which can also be combined with liposuction!
