Your Lubbock surgeon has a lot of body contouring options to choose from, and it can be difficult to know what is right for you. Ultimately, meeting with your board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your questions and concerns surrounding procedures like liposuction or breast augmentation is important, but before you go in for that consultation here are a few things that can help guide your decision when you are considering body contouring.
1. Recovery Time
Choosing a plastic surgery procedure is obviously much more complicated than simply selecting an item from the menu at your favorite restaurant. Along with choosing the result you hope to achieve, you should consider the procedural risks and recovery time. Some surgeries take significantly longer than others to recover from, so if you are not prepared for recovery time or if you are expecting immediate results, you should take these into consideration. For example, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive approach to addressing fat cells that are not responding to diet or exercise. No anesthetics are needed, and the recovery is relatively quick. This may be a better fit for you and your goals than liposuction; however, if you are looking for a more aggressive approach to these difficult fat cells and you expect to see significant results, maybe liposuction is right for you.
Like that restaurant menu, you can’t simply pick what you want and expect to receive it without paying. Each body contouring procedure comes with its own price tag, and some may be more expensive than your budget can afford. For some people, this may be the driving force behind your decision. Again, using our CoolSculpting example, a CoolSculpting procedure may not get you all of the results you would achieve with liposuction, but a CoolSculpting treatment may be much more affordable for you. Also, consider that if you need more than one CoolSculpting treatment, your price could end up being the same as a traditional liposuction procedure.
