Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image.
Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.
Liposuction surgery can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including the thighs, arms, neck, hips, waist, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, and chin.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction is a good option for removing fat in areas that haven’t responded to consistent exercise and dieting. It uses a cannula that is safely inserted into the tissue layer where fat deposits can be found. The cannula is a hollow tube connected to a surgical vacuum or syringe that can suction out the fatty tissue.
Fat cells removed through liposuction do not come back, since removal is permanent. Liposuction patients should practice a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise to maintain the results of the liposuction treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
The best candidates for a liposuction treatment are healthy individuals who have tried exercise and dieting to lose excess fat but without success. This treatment is not intended for weight loss and is instead utilized specifically for stubborn fat reduction.
Liposuction candidates must have a BMI of 30 or lower. The best results can be experienced by patients who practice an overall healthy lifestyle.
Since liposuction is minimally invasive, candidates for this treatment must have no medical conditions that could lead to complications during the healing process.
Liposuction candidates should stop smoking for at least 4 to 6 weeks before and after the treatment. Drinking alcoholic beverages is not advised at least 48 hours before and after the treatment.
Your Liposuction Consultation
A liposuction consultation will begin with a conversation about your appearance goals and complete medical history. The areas for treatment will be discussed.
Feel free to ask as many questions as possible to help you set realistic expectations. Inform our team of any allergies to help us plan a safe and effective treatment.
Before your liposuction appointment, you will be given special instructions to help you prepare before the treatment. These may include quitting smoking and avoiding certain medications.
