Excess fat is a problem that plagues many patients. Even those with ideal diet and exercise routines often find that there are areas of the body that seem resistant to these healthy practices. Stubborn pockets of fat can be a frustrating situation, as they prevent patients from obtaining their ideal body contour. At our plastic surgery practice, Dr. Stephen Hardy can perform liposuction to eliminate these excess deposits of fat and aid patients in sculpting and toning the body. After this procedure, our Missoula patients will experience liposuction side effects. Dr. Hardy explains the most common side effects of liposuction and offers advice on how to deal with these side effects during the recovery period.
Liposuction has advanced in many ways over the years and the new techniques and equipment available make liposuction safer and more effective than ever before. Some of the techniques, such as laser-assisted liposuction, even decrease the severity and duration of side effects experienced following treatment. However, even with these advanced techniques, side effects are a natural part of the recovery process and patients should be prepared for what to expect following a liposuction procedure. Below are some common side effects of liposuction and helpful tips on how to care for the body during recovery:
Side effects are a normal part of the recovery from any cosmetic procedure. However, choosing a skilled plastic surgeon who uses the latest surgical advances can ensure that recovery goes smoothly and is free of complications. Dr. Stephen Hardy and his staff can be trusted to deliver care of the highest quality.
