Learning About Tattoo Removal

Hello, my name is Molly. When I was a young teen, I thought it was unendingly cool to tattoo myself with band quotes and interesting symbols. I did not care about placement or ink spread. In fact, I did not worry about the impact of those tattoos at all. Unfortunately, upon graduating college, I was covered in tattoos that were making it difficult to find a job in my field. Luckily, I was able to undergo tattoo removal procedures to remove the ink from my body. I will use my website to help other people understand the process of having their tattoos professionally removed. Please visit again soon.

Things To Consider Before Getting Liposuction Treatment


Liposuction is one method for getting rid of unwanted fat, but it isn't right for every situation. Understanding more about the potential benefits and risks of liposuction treatment in different situations will help you decide if this procedure is right for you.

Amount of Fat Removed

Liposuction isn't meant to be used for weight loss. It's more of a method for getting rid of stubborn areas of fat that don't seem to budge with weight loss. It isn't possible to remove very large amounts of body fat with liposuction, as this could be dangerous and put the body into shock. As the amount of fat removed increases, the risk of complications increases as well, especially in thinner individuals. People who have 11 pounds of fat, for example, have more than twice the risk of complications as those who remove a more average amount of 4.5 pounds of fat.

Type of Procedure

Different types of liposuction have different pros and cons. For example, people tend to be happiest overall with ultrasound-assisted liposuction, although this procedure takes longer than suction-assisted liposuction or waterjet-assisted liposuction, according to one study. This type of ultrasound helped remove more fat and resulted in better skin tightening after the procedure was over. The water-assisted liposuction was the most uncomfortable during the procedure, but resulted in the least bruising. The suction-assisted liposuction had the longest and most uncomfortable recovery period.

Not Helpful in All Situations

Since the amount of fat that can be removed is limited, liposuction isn't likely to make a very noticeable difference in people that are very overweight. The procedure also doesn't help remove cellulite or improve its appearance. Even when the initial results are good, if a person doesn't change their eating habits and continues to eat more than they should, the remaining fat cells will expand in size, which could cause another area to be a problem. Sometimes people need follow-up procedures or touch-up procedures as well to smooth out the area being treated.


Although complications are rare in this commonly performed procedure, there are some risks associated with liposuction. Swelling and bruising are common and typically go away within a few weeks. Bandages are necessary for at least two weeks, but any stitches can usually come out in 5 to 10 days. You'll need to take antibiotics and pain medication, and you may feel numbness or tingling for weeks after the procedure. While it's important to walk around to limit the risk of blood clots, more strenuous activities usually need to wait until at least one month after the procedure. It may take as much as 4 to 6 weeks to see the full results of the surgery. Contact a business, such as Westlake Cosmetic and Medical Group, Inc. for more information.
