Do you notice pockets of fat on your body? These unwelcome bulges may be related to hormonal changes, post-pregnancy shape changes or simple aging. What is different about them is that they do not respond to diet and exercise like other fat cells throughout your body do. Instead, no matter how healthy you eat or how much you exercise, these fatty deposits do not change shape or size. Liposuction is a surgical intervention that can permanently get rid of this unwanted fat.
Liposuction is a popular type of plastic surgery and has been used safely and successfully for decades. While some combine it with other procedures, such as the tummy tuck, it can be used by itself if you have good skin tone and texture and simply want to remove fat.
You must first visit with our surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction. We will ask you about your goals for your body and will look at the areas that you want to treat. The ideal candidate is at or close to the ideal body weight because lipo is not designed to provide noticeable results at the scale. Candidates should also be at least 18 years old, should not be pregnant or breastfeeding and should not suffer from chronic health issues.
Liposuction can be used on numerous areas throughout the body. One of the most popular areas for it is the abdomen. This is because the abdomen often accumulates fat cells throughout its lower regions, leading to a muffin top when wearing tight pants. Abdominal fat issues also crop up following pregnancy. However, liposuction can also be used on the love handles, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, inner knees, bra bulge area and nearly anywhere else you experience unwanted fat.
