Skin tightening is the procedure that involves the stretching of the skin with the help of several methods. The main reason why people consider getting a skin tightening procedure is aging. But there are several other reasons for such aesthetic procedures…
Skin tightening is one of the oldest aesthetic procedures that people, especially women often get. It is also one of the safest because there is no serious incisions during such procedures, and may give perfect results to the patients.
Some may people look older than their actual age. The skin may get saggy, the components of the body may become droopy at an early age. For example, chin skin, abdominal skin are the areas on which people get skin tightening procedures.
Today, most of the plastic surgery candidates prefer multiple aesthetic procedures at the same time. For example, skin tightening surgery may take place during a liposuction procedure. This situation actually depends on the surgeon’s determination. If he says liposuction is needed for what you desire, liposuction is inevitable then.
Liposuction and Skin Tightening
A skin tightening procedure may require a little additional liposuction surgery depending on the patient’s condition. There are several types of people who possess different saggy skin situations.
If the saggy skin is a result of the excess weight, this is where liposuction procedure is typically performed along with the skin tightening surgery. The excess skin which covers the liposuctioned area is cut off and the skin is sutured together.
Getting these two procedures at the same time may increase the risk of after surgery complications. Since two different invasive procedures are performed in the same area, the patient may experience uncomfortable swellings, inflammation, bruising, itching, scratching, and pain after the surgery.
Both liposuction and skin tightening procedures bring some permanent consequences. Skin tightening surgery leaves scars but the surgeon makes the incisions on barely visible areas.
As for liposuction, the process of excess fat extraction may cause the nature of the body to permanently change. If the patient should gain the same amount of excess weight after lipo, the fat will choose other places to spread through the body. This may become a nightmare to a liposuctioned person.
