Myths about Liposuction

If you are considering undergoing Liposuction surgery in Mumbai, but myths are holding you back then, we’re here to bust some of the most common liposuction myths-

  • Best way to lose weight

No, liposuction is really not the correct way to lose weight. It is not a substitute for proper diet and exercises. To achieve your goal weight, try losing your weight the normal way. Liposuction is a contouring procedure and cannot help you lose a great amount of your weight.

  • It removes cellulite

Liposuction does not remove cellulite, the dimpled skin that appears on the buttocks, hip, and thighs. This procedure just removes the fat that is deposited under the skin.

  • The fat is going to return in the future in some other part of the body

This is completely false. The effects of liposuction are permanent if you maintain your weight in the future with proper eating and regular exercise.

  • Too old for liposuction

Age is not a factor for liposuction. If you are healthy, then you are good to go.

  • Obese people are the right candidates for liposuction

Factually, obese people are not the right candidates for liposuction. If you are a little healthy or a little overweight then you are the right choice for a liposuction. The best candidate for this procedure is a person who has stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to exercise or diet. Liposuction doesn’t help you reduce your weight dramatically. You will have to hit the gym and control your diet to lose weight.

  • Liposuction is only for women

No, liposuction is not just for women. In fact, over the last few years, the demand of liposuction among men has increased. Abdomen, chest, male breasts are some of the common areas for liposuction.

  • Removal of excess fat is better

As mentioned earlier, liposuction is not a way to lose weight, but it’s a procedure to get a sculpted body. So, when you remove excess fat, it is not better but extremely dangerous. It will make your body vulnerable to complications, which includes the formation of lumps and bumps.

  • You can return to your normal routine almost immediately

Liposuction is a surgical procedure, so no, you will need time to recuperate. The recovery varies from person to person, but usually one will start getting back to normal in a week or two. Sometimes, there will be some swelling or tenderness even after 2-3 weeks and it might take up to 6 months for a person to completely heal.  It is recommended to get into a regular exercise routine after 2-3 weeks of surgery.

  • Liposuction and tummy tuck are the same

These surgeries are commonly performed together for good results, but they are not the same thing. In liposuction, your fat pockets get removed. And in the tummy tuck, it removes all the excess skin and fat surrounding your stomach and tightens the abdominal wall.

  • Liposuction gives you permanent results

If you think liposuction is a magical procedure that will prevent weight gain in the future then you are completely wrong. However, the procedure does remove fat cells permanently, but that doesn’t mean future weight gain is not possible. It is very important to follow a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. Make sure you stay away from all that junk, and fatty foods.
