A popular cosmetic treatment that is often requested by plastic surgeons is that of liposuction. This treatment is highly desirable for many reasons and is often thought of as a weight loss option—though it is not. Liposuction is best used for the treatment of unwanted fat throughout the body that is not responding to diet and exercise changes. In fact, the best candidates for liposuction are those within their ideal body weight. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey in Paramus, NJ, can help patients understand if they are appropriate candidates for liposuction and further explore the areas in which it can be performed.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is described as a procedure that removes excess body fat. It is a surgical procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves the use of suction to remove fat from specific areas of the body. There are several types of liposuction procedures, but all involve the same basic technique of sucking out body fat through small incisions in the skin.
Where on the Body Can a Doctor Perform Liposuction?
Liposuction is performed anywhere on the body where there is excess fat. Generally, Dr. Frank Ferraro of Paramus, NJ, will perform liposuction in areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, and arms. However, he may also recommend performing liposuction on other areas of the body if he feels it is necessary to achieve optimal results.
