Liposuction

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an excellent tool that allows surgeons to artistically sculpt problem areas by removing excess fat. Some people find it difficult to shape certain areas of their bodies through diet and exercise and utilize liposuction to help them maintain a figure that reflects their healthy lifestyle.

This procedure can be used for either treating a specific area or can be paired with a complementary process to achieve a significant change to one’s appearance, especially since it helps take care of the loose skin caused by excessive fat deposits.

Why Should You Get a Liposuction?

The stomach, hips, and inner or outer thighs tend to be the areas most people dislike and have treated through liposuction. The buttocks, knees, arms and chin also respond nicely to liposuction or smartlipo.

People may choose to get liposuction to eliminate fat deposits from their body that refuse to go away from exercise and diet. It often happens that no matter how much you work out and eat healthily, some parts of your body just never want to slim down. This usually occurs when our body has a genetic predisposition to store stubbon fat in these areas. For some people, it can be in the thighs or rthe love handles.

What are the Expected Results?

This surgery is supposed to successfully remove the stubborn fat cells that do not respond to fat burning workouts. Lipo allows you to get a slimmer body with the perfect contours that enhance your overall appearance. Liposuction was once the single most popular procedure for weight loss among men and second most popular among women, after breast augmentation.

Even though there is no “right age” for being a liposuction candidate, older patients struggling with excess fat and loss of skin elasticity might not have results as good as a younger patient would. Otherwise, this surgical procedure is appropriate for both women and men. The ideal candidate is the one who is just slightly above average weight and not overly obese.
