Isolated pockets of excess fat are difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. These stubborn fat deposits commonly occur in the belly, on the arms and on the thighs and buttocks. Many individuals choose liposuction as a means to remove these fatty deposits and to regain more natural body contours. This procedure has been used successfully on millions of individuals, and after more than three decades, it remains one of the preferred treatments for contouring targeted areas of the body. At the office of Daniel J. Leeman, MD, we are proud to offer Body-Jet, Power-Assisted and SmartLipo Triplex liposuction procedures.
Candidates for Liposuction
The ideal candidate will be a mature adult struggling to remove fat deposits that lie directly beneath the skin. It is important to note that this is not a weight loss treatment. It is designed for people who are at or close to their ideal weight, but struggle with stubborn fat deposits in certain areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Liposuction does not remove cellulite, nor does it address the problem of fat collecting far below the skin surface. As such, good candidates for the procedure know what it can and cannot accomplish, as well as what to expect before, during and after the procedure. Of course, we will make sure to provide you with these details during a consultation at our office.
Types of Liposuction Procedures
The traditional liposuction treatment is still very popular. However, there have been innovations in these cosmetic surgical procedures. These innovations allow for a quicker recovery and less trauma being done to the body. Some of the newer techniques make it easier to remove the fat, and the risk of complications is greatly decreased as a result.
Advantages of Liposuction
The biggest advantage of liposuction over other fat removal techniques is the ease with which the procedure is performed. Our plastic surgeon has complete control over the amount of fat being removed from the body, thus the outcome expectations are nearly always realized. The results can last for a very long time as long as the patient works to maintain the results through proper diet and exercise.
