Liposuction for the Quarantine 15 –
As social distancing is starting to wind down in Oakland County, many of us are looking in the mirror and are frustrated to see that extra fat that has accumulated from several weeks of not doing much but snacking and watching TV. Sometimes dubbed the “Quarantine 15” by the media, the reality is that most people have only gained about 3 to 5 pounds during the coronavirus lockdown.
But whether you have gained an extra 3 pounds or an extra 15 pounds, getting rid of that unwanted fat is probably now a priority. And with summer now upon us, and all of us spending more time outdoors, it’s easy to get discouraged by this frustrating fat on our belly, thighs, love handles, hips and arms.
The good news is that thanks to developments in tumescent liposuction technologies, almost any area of the body can have liposuction, including the face, neck, chin, belly, hips, buttocks, thighs, back, arms, calves, ankles, knees and male breasts. State-of-the-art tumescent liposuction is performed using a very tiny incision and a very fine cannula (tube) to remove the fat. This means that the procedure is very gentle as well as very precise – – enabling Oakland Count plastic surgeon Dr. Ali to perform it almost anywhere on the body. Only local anesthetic is needed, and patients resume normal activities almost immediately!
Liposuction is ideal for stubborn pockets of fat almost anywhere on the body that simply do not respond to exercise or dieting. Usually this type of fat is hereditary to some degree, and the only way to permanently remove it is with liposuction.
However, while you will lose inches and pounds of fat, remember that liposuction is not a “weight loss” procedure for obese of very overweight individuals.
