Liposuction benefits many men and women who struggle with localized pockets of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure; it is designed for people who are in otherwise good shape and at a healthy weight, but have a stubborn, concentrated area which has not responded to diet and exercise. Everyone has predetermined trouble areas. For some of us it’s our abdomen, for other hips, back of legs, thighs, or the arms. Liposuction can easily treat each of these areas and more. In fact, liposuction can be used on most areas of the body.
You will want to consult with a skilled, board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In some cases, liposuction coupled 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 abdominal area, liposuction coupled with a Tummy Tuck may be recommended. Likewise in the thighs, a Thigh Lift with liposuction may be recommended. Ready to begin a discussion with Columbus Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery about your liposuction and body contouring options?
