Electing to undergo a liposuction procedure is a big decision. You have probably tried tirelessly to achieve the body you want through exercise and dieting, but the results you were looking for have eluded you. Liposuction procedures have improved tremendously over the years, and it is now a safe and effective procedure with much-reduced recovery time. Even though modern liposuction procedures offer minimal downtime and easier recovery, it can still disrupt your everyday life, if only for a short time. If you are a busy individual like most, this time can be difficult to find, thus making the winter season the perfect time to receive this liposuction in Michigan procedure.

Hide Those Compression Garments

After receiving your liposuction treatment, you will be required to wear compression garments for several weeks. These promote your recovery but can be unsightly to some. Winter clothing is often comfortable and loose fitting, make it easy to hide your compression garments. Patients of liposuction also want to limit exposure to sunlight as much as possible. Those typical grey skies during the winter and long sleeves of winter clothing make it easy to do.

More Time to Heal

Liposuction works by breaking down the fat tissue in your treated area and removing it through suction. A small cannula is inserted into the treated area, suctioning away the broken-down fat tissue through a small incision. Our technicians are able to place the incision at a location that is easy to hide. However, if you live somewhere that has hot summers and calls for swimwear for many months of the year, this incision may be noticeable at first. Give your body more time to heal by receiving your procedure during the winter and keep the incision covered up.

Your liposuction treatment may also leave you with bruising and swelling for several weeks after your procedure. These side effects are only temporary and will fade within a few weeks. Your body will require time to rest, so only engage in light activities. With a little effort (or lack thereof), your body will be looking great just in time for your favorite bikini!
