Sometimes stubborn areas of fat are unresponsive to vigorous exercise and diet control. Liposuction or liposculpture is a body sculpting procedure that targets specific areas of fat deposits in the body for permanent removal. This procedure can be applied to nearly any area of the body and is commonly used on multiple areas during an operation. Areas of the body that can benefit from liposuction include the face and neck, arms, hips, waist, abdomen and back, outer thighs (saddlebag region), inner thighs, knees and calves. In some cases, breast fat and male breast enlargement (gynecomastia) responds well to ultrasonic-assisted liposuction.
Liposuction is safe when performed in an accredited facility and by trained plastic surgeons. Tumescent fluid and super-wet techniques have been developed to decrease operative and recovery time, improve outcomes, and restore patient confidence and happiness with better form. Patients achieve a slimmer and better proportioned figure; and you’ll feel better particularly when combined with lifestyle changes of continued exercise and dietary modifications.
