A Little Liposuction Here And There
By NewBeauty Editors |
Although most people envision liposuction as a solution for larger body bulges like the tummy or thighs, it can actually be an appropriate solution for small areas of stubborn fat-thick ankles, pudgy knees, bra bulges-by means of limited-area liposuction.
Limited-area liposuction uses incisions so small that they're difficult to see. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation, and the shorter downtime means you could be back to work in less than a week, during which your bruising and swelling should subside.
Even though this may seem like a smaller procedure, keep in mind that it is still surgery, and all the same safety precautions apply.
