Benefits of and Risks of Liposuction Surgery in North Georgia

A North Georgia liposuction surgeon can skillfully contour areas of the body that are resistant to exercise and diet efforts. Many patients have trouble toning their abdomens or thighs, even through stringent diet and a steady exercise routine, so liposuction may be employed to remove excess fat and slim a particularly troublesome area. When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, liposuction is generally a very safe and effective procedure. A bit of post-operative bruising, swelling, and discomfort is to be expected; however, this typically dissipates after several days. More significant liposuction risks include infection, scarring, complications from anesthesia, pulmonary embolism, hematoma, a collection of fluid under the skin, numbness, discoloration and burns from a laser (if one is used during the procedure). Any surgery will carry a certain degree of risk, but selecting a board-certified North Georgia liposuction surgeon minimizes the chances of something unexpectedly going awry.

Other Body Contouring Options in North Georgia

Lipodissolve treatment uses a series of injections to virtually melt away pockets of fat. The liposuction surgeon in North Georgia will inject a medicated solution into the targeted area to dissolve fat cells, which are eventually absorbed by the body and naturally flushed out. Another alternative to traditional liposuction is Zerona laser treatment, in which laser energy is directed at the fat cells to liquefy them. The body's natural lymphatic system clears it, similar to the Lipodissolve procedure.
