Are you curious about how to make the most out of your upcoming liposuction procedure?
Keeping certain tips in mind, you can remain proactive before, during and after your procedure to obtain optimal results.
It is possible to walk away from your procedure with bumps, lumps and other irregularities on your skin. This most often comes from the liposuction rods that a plastic surgeon uses to remove the fat. Before your procedure, ask what size rods your doctor will use; requesting smaller rods (3-4mm) will reduce your chances of irregularities afterward.
To reduce post-operation bruising, your doctor will inject tumescent fluid which contains epinephrine. Also known as adrenaline, this will constrict your blood vessels, thus reducing overall bruising. Discuss the level of tumescent fluid your doctor plans to use, and request a higher dosage if possible.
