What is Waist Liposuction Recovery Like and Are There Better Minneapolis Options?

Waist Liposuction Recovery

Waist liposuction is a routine, outpatient procedure in which fat is removed from the waistline's sides, leaving a few scars on the patient's body. Men opt for waist liposuction to form a V-shape from their shoulders to the waist, giving them a slimmer and more fit appearance.

For women, waist liposuction is useful in giving them the coveted hourglass shape by narrowing the waist at the sides. 

Traditional waist liposuction requires the use of general anesthesia. Once you're asleep, the doctor will place several small incisions along the sides of your waist to then insert a cannula to suck the fat out from the body.

The Potential Risks And Side Effects Of Waist Liposuction  

The risks associated with waist liposuction are the same as all liposuction surgeries. After you've recovered, it's encouraged that you regularly walk to stay active and keep your circulation flowing.'

Patients will possibly experience numbness or a lack of feeling. Infection is as well possible, but it's relatively uncommon. Scars will also appear in the place of the incisions.

Though system issues aren't common, the following include significant blood loss, hyperthermia, visceral perforation, many infections, and lung inflammation.

Minneapolis Waist Liposuction Recovery

To have a speedy recovery, you should never neglect your doctor's post-operative recommendations. It's best that you not smoke for six weeks before and after the procedure to assist with healing.

Doctors also suggest that you wear a compression garment for six to eight weeks to deal with swelling.

During recovery, your waist will be sore for about a week, and bruising will be persistent for around two to three months. 

Final results will be noticeable after the two to three month period.

Elite Body Sculpture's Process For Waist Fat Removal 

Minneapolis patients looking to slim their stomach without having to endure the potential risks or medical complications that traditional waist liposuction comes with, opt for the Waist AirSculpt® by Elite Body Sculpture.

The procedure can remove fat without using a scalpel, needle, or general anesthesia with a downtime of only forty-eight hours. Better yet, the results are noticeable right when you walk out the door.

How Does Waist AirSculpt® Function?

The procedure first involves the AirPen, a device that uses pressurized air to administer topical anesthesia. After the area has been numbed, the surgeon applies a biopsy punch to form a two-millimeter opening, through which a local anesthetic is distributed.

The AirSculpt® cannula, designed to extract fat and simultaneously tighten the skin, is then applied to give the patient the desired contour and waist shape.

After the fat has been extracted, the two-millimeter aperture is naturally left to heal, leaving a freckle-sized scar.
