Although liposuction is one of the most sought after procedures these days, a lot of people still have misconceptions regarding the treatment. False information may even come from patients who have undergone the procedure. The truth is that every experience is varied and oftentimes, this prevents the facts from coming straight.
Here are some of the most common myths about liposuction – debunked.
Myth 1: Liposuction is for weight loss.
Most women think that they could get a liposuction in order to lose weight. This is a very common misconception and is not always true. Liposuction is merely a body-contouring procedure, which gives patients a tighter and firmer contour. It may help you lose weight, but weight gain will not be prevented any time after the procedure.
Myth 2: Liposuction is not a surgery.
Although it contours the body such as a CoolSculpt, liposuction is not a non-surgical fat removal option. In fact, you will likely be under general anesthesia throughout the procedure since incisions and stitches will be made.
Myth 3: Liposuction can treat cellulite.
Cellulite is not the target of liposuction. Although the process can help reduce the visibility of those bumpy, uneven fat in certain parts of the body, there is another surgical procedure that could provide a solution to that problem.
