Many of us resolve each New Year to lose the extra weight and get back in shape. You may find that despite all your best efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle and stay active, some stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge. Liposuction is an effective way to put the finishing touches on your hard work!
Liposuction is a procedure that reshapes and slims targeted regions of the body through the removal of excess fat deposits. Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures. Liposuction is popular in part because of its ability to improve body proportion and contours. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that last year alone, well over 200,000 men and women underwent liposuction.
For those who are unfamiliar with this procedure, Liposuction is a surgery that essentially removes fat in a way that is minimally invasive from select areas of the body. A long, thin tube is used to remove fat from the problem area, resulting in loss of fat and inches around the waistline and other problem areas.
Although liposuction can be effective in helping get rid of stubborn fat, there are limits to its effectiveness. Specifically, it cannot be used as a treatment for obesity or function as a substitute for proper exercise and diet.
Liposuction can be used in conjunction with other procedures such a Facelift or Abdominoplasty to create an optimal result. Allowing your body time to recover is also significant to the success of this or any procedure.
It is very important to find a board certified plastic surgeon to perform this procedure. An experienced surgeon will take the time to understand your expectations and provide you with the necessary procedure information, enabling you to make an informed decision regarding your options.
