Liposuction 101: Debunking Four Myths About Utah Laser Lipo Procedures


Suppose that you have less than a month until that special event—whether it’s a reunion, a party, or a simple get-together—and you’re aware that conventional weight loss methods won’t help you reach your target figure in time. While browsing the Internet, you stumble across laser liposuction, and possibly some information that scares you away from even thinking about undergoing that procedure. Before you write off Utah laser lipo from surgeons like Dr. Trenton C. Jones, take a closer look at the misinformation going around.

Liposuction Uses Something like a Vacuum Cleaner to Remove Fat
Regardless of the liposuction type, the device that cosmetic surgeons use to extract fat from your body is much smaller than a vacuum cleaner. In fact, it’s as thin as angel hair pasta, and is known as a cannula. This tube requires only a small incision; with an even smaller one required for laser lipo treatment. For the latter, a laser is used to liquefy your fat before it’s sucked out through the cannula.

Liposuction is Exclusive to Women
Liposuction for Utah men isn’t so unusual, considering the procedure is actually one of the top five cosmetic procedures for men in the USA. Men use liposuction to reduce breast size, eliminate love handles, and slim down thighs, among other things. There are even men who use liposuction as a neck lift alternative.

Laser Lipo = Lunch Hour Lipo
Although laser liposuction takes about 45 minutes to an hour, you shouldn’t rush to work as soon as the procedure is done. Most surgeons will recommend that you rest for about two days to fully recover from the treatment. You may be required to rest for an even longer period, depending on the extent of the surgery and your body’s healing rate.

Liposuction Will Get Rid of Fat Permanently
If you find your body ballooning again after some time, don’t blame your cosmetic surgeon. Even the best executed lipo treatment will be for naught if you forsake the habits that made you overweight in the first place. If you wish, you may return to your cosmetic surgeon for touch-ups.

Liposuction can be the best thing that’ll ever happen to you if you know what to reasonably expect. Understand what liposuction is and what it isn’t, and you’ll be on the right track. Start with finding a good cosmetic surgeon for the figure you’ve always wanted.
