Liposuction has the unique ability to remove the unwanted subcutaneous fat you specify carefully without adversely affecting other areas
For example, if you find that the only aesthetic concern is the bulging fat on your stomach or thighs, and you’re satisfied with the rest of your body, then liposuction may be your most effective solution to create a contour that is smoother, leaner and more visually appealing.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can eliminate unwanted subcutaneous fat on your face, neck and body.
This surgical technique removes localized collections of fatty tissue that lie just underneath the skin (subcutaneous adipose tissue) from a patient’s body. Small incisions are made to allow for the insertion of an aspiration cannula in order to suction fat cells out of the body.
This procedure reduces fat cell count through suction as well as controlled cellular damage. This damage is caused by moving the cannula within the fat deposits, breaking them up. The fat is then removed while some is absorbed back into the body over six to twelve weeks following surgery. Patients should expect to wait for several weeks before the full benefits of their treatment become apparent for this reason.
The benefits of liposuction are numerous as the procedure can:
- Recontour your neck.
- Get rid of upper arm fat.
- Eliminate bulging in your mid-section.
- Smooth down bulges in your back.
- Give your waist more definition.
- Slim down your thighs.
- Redefine your calves and ankles.
