Liposuction is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States each year. This procedure can benefit both men and women who struggle with localized pockets of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and is best designed for people who are in otherwise good shape and at a healthy weight, but have a stubborn, concentrated area that has no responded to diet and exercise. Everyone has pre-determined trouble areas, for some of us this area is our abdomen, for other it’s the hips, thighs or the arms. Liposuction can easily treat each of these areas and more. In fact, liposuction can be performed pretty much anywhere on the body that you would want it.
In some cases liposuction couple with another body contouring procedure may be required to achieve the desired results. For example, if your skin has poor elasticity, is loose or hanging in the area that you want liposuction, a liposuction coupled with a Body Lift procedure like a Tummy Tuck or a Thigh Lift or an Arm Lift may be recommended. The best way to get more informed about your liposuction options is to have a one on one consultation with your plastic surgeon.
