A recent study that appeared in the April 2012 edition of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery showed that the overwhelming majority of patients, who have undergone liposuction, were very happy with their results. Dr. Ellen Mahony, a Connecticut plastic surgeon, says the study confirms what she has seen in her practice.
In a press release, Mahony said, “Most all of my patients are happy with the outcome of their liposuction procedures because they get very noticeable results without a lot of post-operative pain and recuperation time. The incisions are small, so people can usually be back to their normal activities in few days.”
As the study pointed out, patient satisfaction is the best way to determine the success of a cosmetic surgery. Many patients see a liposuction doctor to remove bulges and resilient fat that are impossible to eliminate with physical activity and strict diets.
Patients, who are interested in a body contouring procedure, have a number of techniques to choose from like Smart Lipo and Laser Lipo. Liposuction doctors also offer traditional tumescent lipo and ultrasound. A consultation with a Connecticut plastic surgeon will help a patient determine which of the many available procedures will give them their desired results.
“I sit down with my patients and have them show me pictures and explain what their goals are,” Dr. Mahony says, “Body contouring isn’t a cookie cutter procedure. Not everyone wants to look alike. Some patients are seeking sleek lean contours while others want may want body definition that’s a little more curvy.”
That’s the beauty of liposuction and why patients are so satisfied with the enhancement. The patient is able to dictate where they need improvement and contour their bodies the way they see fit.
