Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure that has helped many men and women achieve the results they haven’t been able to see through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a long skinny tube, called a cannula, is inserted and the fat suctioned out. Liposuction can be performed in vertically any area of the body from the knees to the thighs, the mid-section to the buttocks, the back to the arms, and even the neck. It is important to understand that liposuction isn’t a weight loss solution or a replacement for eating healthy and exercising. Ideal candidates are in good health with an area that has been resistant to diet and exercise. Many of us struggle with one area of our body–it’s the first place we gain weight and last place we lose it and sometimes that stubborn fat can seem to hang on for dear life despite our best efforts.
Liposuction may be performed on its own or in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, thigh lift, or arm lift. To learn more about liposuction and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
