Do you deal with areas of unwanted fat on your body, such as around your belly or love handles? Perhaps it is mostly a result of genetics, and you have had areas that are curvier than you would like them to be. No matter why you have this unwanted fat, liposuction can quickly remove it from your body.
If you have done any research into fat reduction methods, you may have seen non-invasive procedures listed along with liposuction. However, you should know that while many non-invasive procedures do produce positive results, liposuction is still the gold standard. This is because it typically only requires one treatment for great results, and it gives more predictable results than non-invasive options do. With liposuction, you can be sure of exactly how much fat you are removing and the area from which you are removing it.
In fact, liposuction can be used in many areas and can be used even in tiny spots where it is difficult to get non-invasive devices. For example, it can remove fat from the inner knees, the chin, and the upper arms. More popularly, it is used across the abdomen, on the inner and outer thighs, and for the hips and buttocks. It can also target areas that are difficult to tone up with exercise alone, such as the upper back.
This is an invasive treatment that uses very small incisions to allow our surgeon to access your fat cells with a small cannula. During the procedure, the cannula will be placed through the incision, will be moved back and forth in a controlled motion to break up and loosen the fat cells, and will be connected to suction to remove the cells from the body. The incisions are then closed, and most should fade away completely in time, becoming invisible to the naked eye. You will be kept comfortable throughout the procedure with local anesthesia and IV sedation or with general anesthesia.
Liposuction is an excellent option for those who are in good health and who are at or near their goal weight. While it is not a weight loss procedure, it can help to sculpt problematic areas of your body to create the shape and curves of your dreams.
