That sound you hear is swimsuit season sneaking up on us very quickly. This means many of us are thinking that all the holiday parties and cheer landed on our hips. That’s not a good look for swimsuit season. Not only do women want to get less hippy, more and more men are looking to contour their hips, too.
As many of us know from experience, the hips are the hardest place to reduce or eliminate excess fat and skin. Sometimes diet and exercise can only help so much. How can cosmetic surgery improve your hips? Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical technique done under local anesthetic. Renuvion is an exciting new minimally invasive surgical technology.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a safe and effective way to contour the midsection. Dr. Mikel Lo at About Faces Cosmetic Surgery uses a local anesthetic which helps speed up recovery time and get better results.
While hips may be hard to trim down on our own, they’re also one of the most successful areas that shows improvement after liposuction. In a little time, you might see your dress or pants size reduce..
But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves because you might not know exactly what liposuction is. Liposuction, or lipoplasty, removes fat from specific areas of the body—including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck—but it isn’t considered a weight-loss method or alternative. You’ll lose more weight with diet and exercise and, if you do have liposuction, you’ll maintain your results better if you manage your weight through a healthy diet.
Liposuction won’t smooth cellulite dimples or remove stretch marks, but there are other procedures that can. Because liposuction is considered major surgery, it carries all the risks of other surgeries, which Dr. Lo will explain in your consultation.
The good news is that healing from a liposuction treatment usually just takes a few weeks. Swelling will go down and the hips will begin to tighten. Within a few months, the entire hip area should look leaner and tighter.
What is Renuvion?
There is an exciting new procedure for trimming hips and it’s only available in Tucson at About Faces Cosmetic Surgery. Renuvion J-Plasma radio frequency cosmetic technology is a revolutionary surgery that combats signs of aging and is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to tighten skin. Cosmetic surgery experts, including Dr. Lo, call it one of the most exciting advances to the field that they’ve seen in years.
Renuvion provides dramatic results with minimal recovery time. The ground-breaking technique can also reduce wrinkles and is perfect for those who’ve had a facelift and would like an occasional touch-up.
Renuvion delivers even, controlled energy with exceptional precision. It’s used to apply energy beneath the skin, which causes a gentle contraction of tissue. The effects of Renuvion may continue to improve over time, though surgeons report that the effect of the tissue contraction is noticeable immediately after the procedure.
