Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body in order to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. New technology has allowed for different techniques that improve accuracy. Today, liposuction is usually performed via the tumescent technique or with the help of ultrasound imaging or a laser. These new technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure.
The ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, maintains a healthy lifestyle, and has one or more problem areas with unresponsive fat deposits. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations, and remember that liposuction cannot be used as a means for major weight loss. Are you problem areas resistant to healthy eating and exercise? Then liposuction might be the right option for you!
Liposuction can be used to treat localized fat deposits within the: thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, chest, face, calves, and ankles. It may be performed alone, or can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck, to achieve maximum results.
