Body contouring deal with making the body more pleasing to look at. It deal with proportioning the body as you so desire, in your efforts to get a given look. Body contouring goes as far as including procedures such as liposuction and lipo-sculpture. These are applied to shape and smooth areas around the body like the chin and neck, abdomen and waist, arms and legs, thighs, hips, and buttocks.
The process of contouring leads to the removal of excess fats in areas where it is no longer needed via liposuction. That body part shall also have a tumescent solution applied to control bleeding and anesthetize it. The excess fat can then be directed to the areas where it was not in an adequate supply, such as the buttocks. Lipoinjection thus becomes another body contorting procedure.
There are special cases that could benefit the most from the application of these procedures. Using it as a way to treat obesity is not a viable option. But if it a question of some stubborn fatty deposits, it shall work perfectly. If a diet and exercise have failed you thus far; you can turn to this method.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that results in there being small incisions on the areas where the fat had to be removed. There is thus the use of either general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the process. It also depends on what the patient or doctor is comfortable with. This is something that can be done in a day and have you discharged that same day, either way.
One needs to wear a compression garment to help in healing. They shall wear it for a week or two if they expect to see great results. In case of sutures, they shall come off after week, unless they were the disappearing variety. You can expect some bruising and swelling from the surgery. Those tend to leave you with some mild discomfort and pain. You can ask for a painkiller for it. Lymphatic drainage coupled with an ultrasonic massage can help the process along. The swelling goes away after about a month. There are cases where it can reach three months. You can, therefore, count on not more than three months to have recovered.
Apart from the procedures of liposuction and lipoinjection, there are other more advanced and specialized body contouring procedures. Some of them include breast implants and tummy tucks. You can expect a longer recovery period from those. You shall, however, get transformational and profound results from them.
The changes one gets from body contouring shall last a lifetime. You can, therefore, be sure of their success rates. But for that you need to get the best doctors. You the need to combine that with a healthy diet and regular exercises.
