- Excess fat deposits on body, neck or face
- Fat that does not respond to diet or exercise
Do you have unwanted fat in areas that you just can’t seem to rid yourself of no matter how hard you try? Liposuction may be the procedure for you. Liposuction reshapes the body’s silhouette with removal of excess fat. Common areas for liposuction include:
- hips / “love handles”
- upper arms
- breasts (male and female)
Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, is the surgical removal of localized or regional excess fatty tissue. Under general anesthesia, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through small, inconspicuous incisions hidden within the natural creases of the body. Using a controlled motion, dislodged fat is suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum. Compression garments may assist patients during the healing process to help skin conform to new body contours.
