Liposuction in Nigeria: Why I did plastic surgery
Liposuction in Nigeria….How my journey started…

It’s not every day you get inspired to share your personal story (how i did liposuction in Nigeria) with the public,
but here we are, so bear with me. If this seems a bit scattered, it’s my first time!
I guess I’ll start with a little background about myself…

 

Liposuction in Nigeria

I’m 27 years old, no kids, no spouse and I live in Port Harcourt. All through
secondary , and tertiary school I was with very little body fat. How I got so fat and went out of shape is
something I couldn’t really explain, probably food from fast foods, junks,
nights in the town with my friends and less gym time left me
with excess fat that I just couldn’t get rid of.

Have you ever gone to the market, seen a beautiful dress, bought the dress,only to get home and find out that the outfit would have been perfect if not for excess belly fat?

How did you feel? Disappointed and sad right? That’s the feeling I got most
times. Sometimes after snapping pictures, probably 20 copies, I would end up
loving and choosing only 1 copy or none because my protruded stomach
would always do injustice to my pictures, even after trying to tuck it in. I would
always put on oversized clothes to cover my fatty belly. I didn’t feel good or
confident walking or attending occasions in fitted clothes. I was always
uncomfortable, self-conscious and unhappy.

I can’t say I have ever been one to consider plastic surgery before now. Don’t get
me wrong, I understand nobody is perfect and wholeheartedly believe beauty is
really in the eye of the beholder, but I decided that I wanted to do something for
myself; something that makes me happy and is entirely my own.

There’s been a lot of buzz in the media about the stigma of plastic surgery and I’ll
be the first to admit I was one of those “I’ll never get plastic surgery…blah blah
blah” people until recently. I was one of those who saw it as a complete
waste of money, but as I’ve grown I realise that plastic surgery is no different than
buying a particular purse or pair of shoes because they make us feel good about
our look. I’m so used to hiding my body under clothes in the hopes that nobody
will mock me or my belly pooch for a fanny pack, but why should I feel that
way?

Before you judge and think I just need to get on a treadmill, trust me, I’ve
tried that. It got to a point where no matter how much I watched my diet and
exercised regularly, nothing would budge. That’s about the time that I decided
to stop wallowing and do something…so I started a little research on body
contouring procedures and liposuction in Nigeria.

Nonsurgical treatments prove that technology and science can accomplish
amazing things. But for me, that’s not enough because I wanted something that’s
longer lasting. I did some research on liposuction in Nigeria,  plastic surgeons; male, female, old and
young – you name it and I probably googled it. For me, doing the research was
exciting because it was the first time I was actively working towards my goal of having liposuction in Nigeria. so I
started with an online community detailing procedures and real patient
experiences to get an idea of what I could potentially be going through.

I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Opara Kingsley . It was during my
consultation that we talked about my stomach pooch and he
explained that I was qualified for liposuction…

Plastic Surgery Myths Explained !

5 TOP MYTHS ABOUT PLASTIC SURGERY EXPLAINED

 

A myth is simply a widely held but false belief or idea. In our society today, there a lot of misconceptions about plastic surgery which are just NOT true. For so many reasons, these myths have shaped many people’s attitude towards having a cosmetic procedure or those who have had a cosmetic procedure done.

We are exposed to a lot of information, especially in the news and on the internet. Sadly, not all of that information is accurate.

 

Plastic surgery procedures

Here is a list of the top five myths you may have probably heard and what the truth really is.

 

PLASTIC SURGERY IS ALL ABOUT BEAUTY AND VANITY:  There is a lot of media attention on butt enlargements and breast augmentation. But plastic surgery goes beyond all that; it also covers other areas like correcting a birth defect like a cleft palate, which can cause problems with nursing, eating, or speech; Restoring hand function after an injury; post-cancer breast reconstruction etc.

Apart the aesthetic look, Plastic surgeons also care about the functional and overall results of each cosmetic procedure. Studies have also shown that most people who choose cosmetic surgery usually feel better about themselves and enjoy better quality of life.

 

PLASTIC SURGERY IS ONLY FOR WOMEN: It is a fact that women make up the majority of plastic surgery patients, and some procedures are more common for women, such as breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lift, and breast reduction, they’re not the only patients.

Men can also benefit from plastic surgery in so many ways; like male breast reduction, hair transplantation, chin augmentation and liposuction for a more trimmed look. Men can also opt for less invasive procedures like Botox and dermal fillers for a rejuvenated and naturally youthful appearance.

 

DIET AND EXERCISE CAN DELIVER THE SAME RESULTS AS PLASTIC SURGERY: A healthy lifestyle is highly beneficial without doubt. This usually includes; a proper diet, regular exercising and good rest.

While nutrition and physical activities are helpful, when it comes to the effects of aging, pregnancy, and significant weight loss; there is only so much diet and exercise can do. To achieve the best results, such persons can get a cosmetic procedure done to address the areas of concern and deliver the appearance they desire.

 

BREAST AUGMENTATION IS DANGEROUS: There is a common fear of rupture of implants, cancer or other complications associated with breast augmentation.

Implants have been extensively tested and studied over the years. Silicone breast implants were the preferred implant, due to their design and longevity. According to the Institute of Medicine, “there is no evidence that breast implants, including silicone breast implants, cause breast cancer or any other disease, and the risk of rupture is 0.7 to 1% per year for the age of the implant.  ”

While breast implants are considered safe, they do come with risks. It is advisable to have routine screenings for breast cancer, even without an implant.

 

LIPOSUCTION HELPS YOU LOSE WEIGHT: Liposuction is NOT a weight loss procedure.  It is the removal of excess fat from SPECIFIC areas of the body, to achieve a desired result.

Liposuction is generally aimed at giving a well- defined, curvier look. The procedure is possibly one of the most favoured cosmetic procedures because it is safe and permanently removes fat cells in the treatment areas.It is ideal to maintain a stable weight and good muscle tone before considering getting liposuction done.

 

It is important to speak to plastic surgeon when you want to have a cosmetic procedure done. That way, you can ask questions and have your areas of concern addressed by a professional.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Such as the abdomen, hips, thighs buttocks, arms or neck. It is not a weight loss or weight reduction procedure.

It is simply moving the fat in your body from where you do not want it to where it is desired (in case of fat transfer).

Liposuction is carried out using suction technologies from a small tube. When liposuction is combined with fat transfer, the fat that’s removed is purified and re-injected in a more desirable area of the body, like the butt or Hips.

This procedure is entirely safe when performed by a qualified Plastic Surgeon. Since the fat involved in the fat transfer is taken directly from the patient’s body, there is very little risk when using fat as a filler. This contouring remains relatively permanent, as long as you maintain a stable weight.

You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have too much fat in specific spots with a generally stable body weight; and you are also a healthy individual without a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing.

Results following liposuction may not be clear until several weeks after, when the swelling has settled down. There is minimal scarring which becomes less visible with time.

However, there are several factors that determine the final results of Liposuction and Fat transfer. Like

Good Skin Tone and Elasticity

Healthy Lifestyle

Body Weight

Smoking.

Liposuction and Fat transfer is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Nigeria. Before opting for this procedure, you need to schedule at least two consultations with a plastic surgeon. Where you will be assessed; take the necessary tests to ensure that you are fit to undergo the desired procedure. You can also discuss your aesthetic needs and expectations with your plastic surgeon.
