It’s not a choice of Smooth or Chunky

Liposuction smooth results

Liposuction, done properly leaves the skin with a smooth finish, unlike crunchy peanut butter.

Unlike Peanut Butter – there is no choice of smooth or chunky when it comes to Liposuction.  A Smooth finish to the skin surface is always the goal.  How do you ensure that your Liposuction Surgery has optimal results?

Start with a questions and answers session with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to your liposuction or fat transfer surgery.   Discuss how he does the procedure.  The instrument that a Plastic Surgeon uses to remove the fat from your body during a Liposuction procedure is called a cannula.  All Liposuction cannulas have holes at the tip (like a straw), where the fat enters the cannula tube and gets sucked out of the body. A thin,  3 millimeter diameter cannula with small 1mm diameter holes at the cannula tip ensures that you don’t leave defects in the fatty tissue where fluids or blood can accumulate.  The results is a smooth skin surface.   Larger liposuction cannulas do the job quicker, but allow fluids to accumulate and have a higher likelihood of uneven surgery results…and scaring. It is the uneven scarring that causes skin contour irregularities.

Sculptures Liposuction Foam

Sculptures Liposuction Foam is medical grade polyurethane foam designed to provide even, smooth padding and compression for added comfort and contouring

Another key component in maximizing even healing is the use of a well fitting Liposuction Garment and Liposuction Foam.  Immediately following surgery, Liposuction Foam padding is placed inside your compression garment. Sculptures Liposuction Foam can be cut to the desired shape and size, and then easily inserted between sterile dressing and compression garment.  The foam ensures even compression and the compression will hold the surgical area firmly in place, aiding in proper retraction and intended body contouring.   With the help of the foam, you will see less waviness in the skin surface – Free fat cells are thought to be redistributed evenly by the pressure of the foam plus the pressure garment. The result is a smoother skin surface.

As for your peanut butter – Crunchy wins!  Crunchy Peanut Butter has considerably less Saturated Fat and  gives you 2% more Fiber than Smooth and Creamy.  But then again Smooth and Creamy has more Vitamin E.  Either way Peanut Butter is a great source of Protein and B Vitamins.*

Kathy Bates Opens Up About Her Battle With Lymphedema

Contemporary Design Inc.  Compression Garments exert 18-21 mmHg of pressure on the limb. The amount of pressure is measured in terms of “mmHg,” or millimeters of mercury, based on the amount of pressure exerted by one millimeter of liquid mercury.  (You’re probably familiar with this from your blood pressure readings, which are also expressed in terms of “mmHg.”)

Compression garments are worn by those with lymphedema on the affected limb following complete decongestive therapy.   The garment’s compression helps maintain edema reduction and compresses the arm or leg and encourage the flow of lymph fluid out of the affected limb.

Consult your healthcare provider.
