If you have been struggling to lose weight to no avail, don’t worry, you are not alone. Many Dallas, TX residents spend hours at the gym trying to lose weight and get in shape, or suffer through terribly strict diets, only to lose maybe five pounds a month – if that. Even if they lose some fat, there are areas that are just so stubborn that they will never be toned. These problem areas affect all of us and can be found in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or even chin.
Luckily, there is a way to get rid of this fat without having to waste hours at the gym or eating meager portions – liposuction.
Dr. Ricardo Meade has been performing liposuction treatments on Dallas patients for decades, helping them both look and feel their best. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body, including the stomach, hips, back, legs, and neck, getting rid of the stubborn fat that is usually resistant to traditional forms of weight loss.
However, there are endless liposuction treatments available these days for patients, each providing in its own benefits and targeting specific body types. As each year goes by, the field of plastic surgery improves, allowing new innovations in liposuction to improve the patient’s experience and results.
Perhaps one of the biggest innovations in lipo treatments has been laser liposuction. Laser liposuction is one of the newest lipo treatments available for Dallas patients who want to get rid of stubborn fat. During the procedure, Dr. Meade uses a laser, administered through a microcannula, to heat and melt the fat in the areas where it has accumulated. Due to the smaller cannula which is used, and the fact that the laser liquefies the fat, facilitating its removal, laser lipo has become a big hit in the city.
Laser liposuction in Dallas helps patients recover much faster. The treatment can now be performed under local anesthesia, reducing recovery time and the number of risks involved with general anesthesia.
When the fat is melted prior to removal, the surgery results in less trauma for the patient. Other liposuction treatments involve moving the cannula around the fat to break it up, causing swelling, bruising and bleeding – not to mention discomfort – for the patient. Other liposuction treatments can also result in excess fat for the patient, but not laser liposuction. Laser lipo tightens skin as the fat is being removed, eliminating the need for a follow-up body contouring treatment. It also promotes collagen growth, giving your skin a more vital and youthful appearance.
Recover time is so minimal, some patients can be back at work in just two days after the surgery.
Before getting started, Dr. Meade will evaluate your health to make sure you are an ideal candidate for the treatment and will let you know exactly what you can expect so you are never confused or left in the dark about your surgery. The treatment will be performed on an outpatient basis, so you can go home the same day. Results are long-lasting, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
