Liposuction is the surgical method of ridding your body of unwanted fat and restoring a slimmer, more toned body contour.
Stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise can be frustrating, and localized fat can create a disproportionate body contour. Common areas of fat accumulation include the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, back, and buttocks. Liposuction is the surgical method of ridding your body of this unwanted fat and restoring a slimmer, more toned body contour. Also known as liposculpture, liposuction techniques now focus on balancing the removal of fat with the fat left behind for natural-looking, sculpted results and a beautiful body shape.
You have fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
You have minimal excess skin and good skin elasticity
Stubborn fat prevents you from feeling confident in your body
Utilizes small incision sites to minimize scarring
A cannula (thin, hollow tube) is attached to a device that suctions out fat
Depending on the number of areas being treated and the amount of liposculpting being performed, general or local anesthesia (tumescent technique) may be used
Minimal associated bleeding and bruising
Uses a low-level laser to facilitate easier fat removal
Minimizes swelling and bruising by causing less damage to the surrounding tissues
Helps prevent pain
Fat harvested through liposuction may be used to add volume and rejuvenate certain areas of the body, including the breasts, buttocks, lips, and cheeks
A gentle liposuction technique is used to ensure the highest volume of viable fat for transfer
Using fat for augmentation or enhancement helps achieve natural, subtle results
