Body Contouring / Liposuction
Liposuction effectively removes excess fat deposits to help you achieve a slimmer look. You may exercise and diet but still have problem areas where fat remains. Liposuction uses small, thin tubes inserted through small incisions to suction away those stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction is popular among both women and men.
Areas where liposuction can provide contour and shape include the thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, and chest. Depending on the volume of fat being removed, liposuction may be performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia.
If there is excessive skin in addition to fat, then body contouring may be necessary to address both skin and fat deposits.
After pregnancy or significant weight loss, you may develop excess skin, weakened core muscles, trouble spots that won’t go away, or all of the above. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a common surgery that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens and strengthens abdominal muscles for a sleek, more toned silhouette.
