Achieving better body contours may require more than just changes to diet and exercise. Even while eating a healthy, nutritional diet and exercising every day, many patients have areas of the body that still harbor unwanted body fat. These areas of fat deposits can be extremely troubling to both men and women who want to look and feel their best. At Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey, patients in and around the community of Paramus, NJ will find that liposuction is an effective and affordable way to contour the body when diet and exercise are no longer effective.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is the manual removal of body fat using a specialized device called a cannula. This wand is inserted into the treatment area and uses vacuuming to remove fat cells from the specific areas of concern. The doctor manipulates the cannula through a small insertion point in the skin to evenly remove fat cells—permanently.
Where can liposuction be used?
There are many areas of the body where liposuction can be used to achieve desired results. Most liposuction patients have treatment performed on the following trouble spots:
Who is a candidate?
The best candidate for liposuction are adult patients who are healthy and have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with this procedure. Patients should be within their ideal body weight, as liposuction is never recommended for weight loss alone. Instead, this procedure is best used to help patients improve their body contours, removing fat deposits from stubborn areas throughout the body. Our team of professionals will consult with patients during their initial appointment to determine candidacy and discuss realistic expectations. Our team may recommend liposuction in addition to other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, if patients need both fat and skin removal performed.
