Liposuction can be a very valuable tool for men or women who are struggling to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Almost any area of the body can be shaped with Liposuction including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and even the neck and face. Liposcution can also be paired with other procedures such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, or thigh lifts. It works together with these surgeries to provide even better looking results.
Our board certified plastic surgeons believe that it is important for patients to understand that Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or an all-encompassing weight loss solution. The best Liposuction candidates are people who live a healthy lifestyle and have a healthy diet but have isolated body areas with stubborn fatty deposits. Fat cells cam form in these trouble spots for many different reasons. Some people are just genetically predisposed to a certain body shape. Diet and exercise are often futile when genetics plays a role.
Liposuction and SmartLipo give you the option to target the exact areas with excess fat. Only an experienced surgeon can tell you if you are a good candidate for Liposuction and only an experienced surgeon should be trusted to perform your procedure. It is unfortunate but Liposuction has become such a popular procedure that patients often seek the cheapest possible surgeon for their surgery. These surgeons may not be certified and often don’t know what they are doing. Results can be very harmful to the patient and can cause problems that last a lifetime.
