After performing well over 250,000 fat removal and body contouring procedures, Sono Bello’s team of over 135 board-certified plastic surgeons have seen how the removal of excess body fat can improve a patient’s life both in terms of their self-confidence and their physical health. When a person has the burden of unwanted fat cells removed from their body, they become free to pursue a more active and fulfilling lifestyle.
Each of our patients has a unique set of goals and obstacles. Therefore, our skilled surgical team offers a diverse range of procedures to ensure the best possible outcomes.
In this article, we’ll describe in detail all the life-changing benefits that our patients receive from their Sono Bello surgery.
A Minimally Invasive Procedure
Liposuction technology has advanced in recent years to become less invasive and more efficient. The old technique of using large metal tubes hooked up to a suction machine to remove excess fat is, fortunately, a thing of the past.
We are now able to remove more unwanted subcutaneous fat with laser-like accuracy. Sono Bello’s TriSculpt method is a micro-laser liposuction procedure that permanently removes fat cells from a patient’s body.
Rather than relying solely on the strength and steadiness of the surgeon’s hands, laser-assisted liposuction aids the surgeon during the body contouring procedure. The lasers are used to gently soften and dislodge stubborn fat, allowing it to be more easily removed. High precision and minimal invasiveness enable us to give our patients a more natural look by causing less trauma to their bodies.
Fast Surgery, Fast Recovery
The liposuction procedure itself is relatively quick and painless. Inside the operating room, patients are administered minimal oral sedation mixed with local anesthesia to ensure a pleasant and safe experience.
Once the patient is comfortably situated (some like to play their own music during the operation), small incisions are made in targeted areas, and microcannulas (tubes) powered by the latest tech and assisted by micro-lasers are used to eliminate unwanted fat deposits from those parts of the body.
By making small incisions and using small tubes, Sono Bello surgeons can avoid inadvertently damaging the tissue surrounding the unwanted fat cells. Traditional liposuction procedures use a larger incision and a larger liposuction cannula because they expedite the surgery. However, these larger tools can also result in more trauma to the patient’s abdomen and less natural-looking results. That’s why we prefer to use more precise instruments.
After the surgery is completed, it typically takes patients a couple of days to recover. The time it takes for someone to fully heal varies case-by-case. However, we have seen patients go into surgery on a Friday and be back working at their jobs on Monday.
Even if they don’t feel comfortable returning to work, most patients are able to resume their day-to-day routines within three days. It is normal for some swelling to last up to a week, and the surgical incisions won’t be fully healed for 15 days. For a more in-depth breakdown of the liposuction recovery process, read Dr. Chung’s insightful article on the subject in our liposuction resources section.
More Natural-Looking Results
Our surgeons’ goal is to reveal a patient’s natural beauty. Their skill combined with our advanced micro-laser technology makes achieving natural-looking results more attainable than ever. As we’ve touched on, micro-lasers assist in the liberation of fat during liposuction. The laser energy softens the fat and makes it easier to remove. A smoother operation means a smoother, more sculpted finish. Less collateral injury to surrounding tissues leaves patients looking and feeling better after surgery.
In addition to helping the surgeon with fat removal, micro-laser technology also tightens and strengthens the skin by stimulating the collagen (the main structural protein in your connective tissues) in the deep dermis. This means less sagging, loose skin.
Collagen is a strong, fibrous protein that supports the structure and of your skin. When your skin is stimulated by lasers during TriSculpt liposuction, a natural regenerative process is triggered in the dermis that produces new collagen peptides which strengthen and tighten your skin. Enhanced tightness and elasticity promote a healthier, more natural look post-operation.
A patient’s Sono Bello journey doesn’t end when their excess fat deposits have been eliminated. In fact, that’s when the fun part starts! Once their post-op recovery and healing processes are complete and they’re finally able to shed their compression garment, our patients report that they (and their newly transformed bodies) experience a higher quality of life. They start exercising more regularly, dive back into the dating pool, pick up new hobbies, experience success in their careers, and set a better example for their children. Here’s how:
Getting Back in the Gym
Excess fat can make working out challenging for two reasons. First, being overweight makes cardiovascular exercises like walking, running, and hiking difficult because of the strain that it puts on one’s joints. Secondly, if a person is feeling self-conscious about their appearance, it can discourage them from working out in public places.
Liposuction surgery can help kickstart a person’s fitness journey by getting them to a place where they feel comfortable and confident about going to the gym. The removal of excess body fat removes some of the strain that was being put on a person’s hips, knees, and ankles.
Finding New Romantic Relationships
When a person is single, nothing hurts their chances of meeting someone new like having low self-esteem. Self-consciousness is like kryptonite for a person’s love life. When you feel unattractive, you are unattractive. Confidence, on the other hand, is sexy. People are naturally drawn to positive energy. That’s why so many Sono Bello patients report success in the dating pool after undergoing body contouring. The confidence boost that they get from having their bodies transformed makes them more optimistic and outgoing, which makes them more attractive to potential partners.
Picking up Hobbies
Our patients often tell us that they began participating in activities like hiking and kickboxing after their operation. We can attribute this partially to the increased confidence that patients feel after their surgery. Their transformed body makes them feel more adventurous and therefore more likely to pick up new hobbies. For some patients, their weight loss gave them the physical ability to take part in actives that they weren’t able or allowed to participate in before. Kathy Green, for example, said that she was excited to begin ziplining after her surgery because she didn’t meet the weight requirement before.
Our patients have reported that their increased self-confidence has helped them perform better in their careers. Especially people who work in customer-facing fields like sales or service, feeling good about their appearance helps them approach each day with enthusiasm and resolve. One of our patients is an entrepreneur who owns and operates her own clothing business and her Sono Bello liposuction operation helped her look and feel right in her own clothes, which helped her sell them more effectively. No matter what field a person works in, enhancing their self-esteem can only propel them towards a bright future.
