Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may originate from family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction, sometimes referred to as “lipo” by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image.
Lipo techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
In some cases, liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia in the office.
If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.
Ideal liposuction candidates are:
- Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
- Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
In some cases liposuction is performed alone and in other cases it is used with as plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck.
