Liposuction can be highly beneficial for enhancing and highlighting body contours.

2 Minute Read:

Liposuction is a trusted surgical procedure that helps men and women with a very common problem: stubborn fat. 

Many people struggle to reach their ideal body goals even with dedicated natural weight loss practices. In some cases, genetics are to blame for fat that won’t budge; in others, the rigors of childbirth were too severe for a healthy diet and exercise to remedy. 

When all other approaches have not given you your desired contour, liposuction may be your answer. 

Liposuction Removes Stubborn Fat 

Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure that uses vacuuming technology to remove fatty deposits from areas that are not highly responsive to diet and exercise. 

One of the main benefits of liposuction is the wide variety of areas where it can be used. This includes the: 

  • Legs ( thighs, calves, ankles, inner knee).
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist 
  • Upper arms 
  • Back 
  • Chest 
  • Cheeks, chin, and neck 

While liposuction is used to remove fat, it cannot be used for major weight loss or to treat obesity. 

Liposuction Provides Greater Clothing Options 

Not only does liposuction remove fatty deposits, but it removes fat in such a way that improves the natural contours of the body. 

  • Liposuction on the arms can create a more flattering look in sleeveless or skin-tight pieces. 
  • Liposuction on the abdomen and hips highlights the appearance of an hourglass figure. 
  • And liposuction on the upper thighs can reduce the circumference of the legs and make shorts and dresses more comfortable. 

Your treatment will be personalized to you to improve your contours in the way that you desire. 

Liposuction Produces Long-Lasting Results

Liposuction is not like natural weight loss. Weight loss occurs when the fat cells shrink in size. Liposuction, on the other hand, eliminates a percentage of the fat cells in the treatment area by suctioning them away.

The permanent removal of the cells is what allows the results of liposuction to be so long lasting.

Results from liposuction can be maintained with a consistently healthy diet and exercise routine. Liposuction results are often most often affected by fluctuations in weight. Losing or gaining significant weight can change contours and cause skin laxity.
