Abdominal Liposuction : Cheating or Not?

Do you think abdominal liposuction is cheating? I had a conversation with my niece who told me she thinks it’s a cop out. Of course, she is in her early twenties with a metabolism that burns calories even when she is just breathing! This response was very interesting to me because as someone in their forties I don’t have that kind of metabolism anymore. I’m not someone who would be considered a couch potato. I try to exercise regularly and eat a good diet at least 80% of the time. Yet steadily over the years I have not been able to make progress in losing the weight on my abdomen. At this point abdominal liposuction is an option and a very legitimate one regardless of what my twenty something niece might think.

Liposuction has had instant success with men and women worldwide. They have dieted and exercised without the visible results that they want. We all have been faced with weight problems either for ourselves or with family or friends. Everyone has dealt with someone who has gained a few too many pounds and is not happy about it. Statistics show that even though the cost of abdominal liposuction is not cheap, it is also one of the most performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S.

The Abdominal Liposuction Procedure

Abdominal liposuction surgery takes approximately couple of hours depending on the person the amount of liposuction you will be undergoing and the type of liposuction equipment that will be used. Beforehand you will need to go through a series of physical examination before you have the operation in order to ensure that you are both physically fit and will not face any major complications. The doctors want to ensure that you can heal as quickly as possible.

The procedure itself is not complicated. What is more complicated is the healing process and the post operative instructions given to you by your doctor. The healing process can take a few months during which time you will have to be on a strict diet as prescribed by the doctor. Before you undergo surgery be sure to get an abdominal liposuction picture from your doctor so that you can see what to expect. Many patients are not prepared for the reality after the operation. After the operation the area is bruised and lumps may form where the fat was extracted. The good news is that it should be temporary and it will all disappear in matter is months.

Abdominal Liposuction Risks

Don’t expect miracles overnight and be sure that you fall into the right type of profile of someone who has a good chance of success with this operation. Abdominal liposuction can only relieve you of a few pounds at a time. It is highly recommended for those who have put on around 10 –15 pounds. The person should also be ready to diet and exercise in order to maintain a their form. Obese people may not see a great improvement unless they undergo multiple sessions during a wide period of time. Doctors can not perform another procedure unless the first one has healed enough to support another liposuction.

A statistically minor risk is fatality. Statistics also show that 1 person in 100,000 die due to abdominal liposuction. Most of those cases were because the patient did not follow the diet and post operative directions given. There are also other reasons like a surgeon conducting too much liposuction, the patient having multiple cosmetic procedures done in one day and general anesthesia related.

So am I still considering abdominal liposuction? Yes, because the more research I conduct the more common I know it is. I may give my ab lounge a couple more months but life is short. It is too short to be unhappy with the way that you look day in and day out.
