Remove fat from stubborn problem areas
Men and women who are within 30% their ideal weight who need extra assistance reshaping problem areas in addition to diet and exercise will benefit the most from liposuction. With the ability to treat more areas and larger areas at a time, liposuction can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
More predictable and consistent than noninvasive treatments, liposuction slims and reshapes parts of the body while removing excess fat deposits. Performed through small incisions, a cannula – or hollow tube – is inserted to loosen fat through a back and forth motion. Anything dislodged is then suctioned out of the patient’s body. After surgery, a compression garment or bandage may cover treatment areas to control swelling and keep the shape of the new body contour.
- Hips and Thighs
- Abdomen and Waist
- Upper Arms
- Inner Knee
- Chest Area
- Cheeks, Chin and Neck
- Calves and Ankles
Depending on the treated areas, patients can generally return to work in a few days and to their normal routines with a month to a month and a half. This outpatient procedure helps patients gain more confidence while removing stubborn and unwanted fatty tissue.
