What Exactly is Liposuction?

“The fat just won’t go away.”

Certain areas of the body can just have “stubborn fat.” Perhaps you’ve joined a gym or started going to yoga or barre classes, or even hired a personal trainer. But unfortunately, we hear this all the time, “no matter how much I diet or exercise, the fat just won’t go away.” We understand that this can be a frustrating dilemma, and that’s why we’d like to offer the idea of liposuction. No doubt, you’ve heard of someone getting “lipo” done. But, what exactly is lipo, and does it actually work? We’re glad you asked. The goal of a liposuction procedure isn’t necessarily to?reduce your weight, but rather to improve the shape of your body. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, helping you fit in your clothes like you want to! Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

For your comfort during the procedure, we’ll recommend a method of anesthesia and then carry out the surgery?through small, inconspicuous incisions. Check out these before and after lipo photos. We know you’ll love the results, so set up an appointment with our expert team today!
