What’s Eaten in December, Stays on the Waistline
With its cloak of sparkling lights and shiny ribbons, December wraps us in a magical world of merriment, filled with an endless supply of sweet treats, and warmed by the glow of friendship. But in the cold, harsh light of January, it hits us right in the gut (literally!) that this month wields no wizardry which can whittle the holiday weight from our waistlines!
What is the ideal candidate profile for CAL?
The ideal candidate for Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL) typically includes individuals who:
- Have Stubborn Fat Deposits: CAL is ideal for those who have localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
- Are in Good Overall Health: Candidates should be in good general health, without significant medical conditions that could increase the risks of the procedure.
- Have Realistic Expectations: Patients should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. CAL can enhance body contours, but it’s not a substitute for overall weight loss.
- Are Close to their Ideal Weight: CAL is not a weight loss solution but is best suited for individuals who are already close to their target weight and want to address specific problem areas.
- Have Firm, Elastic Skin: Candidates with good skin elasticity are more likely to achieve smooth and even results after the removal of fat.
- Are Non-Smokers: Non-smokers generally have better healing and reduced risks of complications.
Are there any risks or potential complications associated with CAL?
As with any medical procedure, Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL) carries potential risks and complications. While CAL is considered a safe and effective method for removing unwanted fat, patients should be aware of the following risks:
- Infection: Although rare, there is a risk of infection at the incision sites.
- Bruising and Swelling: Bruising and swelling are common after CAL and usually subside within a few weeks.
- Scarring: While CAL incisions are small, there is a possibility of minimal scarring at the entry points.
- Skin Irregularities: Changes in skin texture or contour may occur, although skilled practitioners minimize this risk.
- Numbness or Sensitivity: Temporary numbness or heightened sensitivity in the treated area may occur but usually resolves over time.
- Fluid Imbalance: Fluid shifts can occur, leading to temporary imbalances. Proper hydration is essential during recovery.
