Patients who have areas around the body that have unwanted, stubborn areas of fat may have found that changes in their diet and increased exercise fail to help them get the silhouette they really want. When it comes to unwanted fat, there is only so much a patient can do. Thanks to cosmetic surgeries, patients cannot remove unwanted fat manually to improve their contours with targeted treatment. One of the most popular options is that of liposuction.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a common procedure performed for both men and women who are looking to sculpt specific areas of the body. It can be used anywhere on the body where excess fat remains after improved nutritional changes and increased exercise. Using a special wand, or cannula, that is inserted into the treatment area and manually suctions the fat cells from the body, patients can change their contours quickly and easily. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, patients who undergo liposuction will find that they can maintain the results for many years.
Where can liposuction be performed?
Patients are often curious about the areas that can be treated with liposuction. Essentially, the sky is the limit! Our patients have had liposuction in various targeted parts of the body, including the:
- Flanks/”love handles”
- Upper arms
Is liposuction a weight loss solution?
We encourage patients to fully understand the goal of liposuction. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but instead a body contouring option for patients who are already leading active lifestyles and who are within their ideal weight range. While some weight may be lost with fat removal, it is not the primary goal of the procedure.
