Body contouring procedures, including liposuction and non-surgical fat reduction, are very beneficial for those struggling to lose extra pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. These procedures have made revolutionary strides to improve a patient’s comfort and safety during and after the procedure. Since there are surgical and non-invasive options offered at our Fairfield, Connecticut practice, many patients struggle to choose which procedure is best for them.
The decision should ultimately depend on your unique case and different factors of your lifestyle. These factors include how much skin laxity you have, your age, quality of skin, your specific goals, and what your risk tolerance is.
Your desired goals play the most significant role in what body contouring option is right for you. The amount of unwanted fat you have will help you and your plastic surgeon decide on a procedure together. If the amount of fat is very minimal, your doctor may recommend a non-invasive treatment option for minimal downtime and recovery, which may be more beneficial for you at that time. However, if you have a large amount of unwanted fat, you may not see a dramatic change with non-invasive treatments. In this instance, surgical procedures are the best option for you.
Whatever your specific case, Dr. Vasquez and his staff will guide you through your decision process. They will provide you with a detailed description of possible procedures, the risks associated with them, and the probable outcomes after your surgery or treatment. You will never have to make this decision alone. During your consultation, Dr. Vasquez wants you to feel completely confident in your decision, whether it’s non-invasive or a surgical body contour procedure.
