Continue reading to learn more about how liposuction can help you achieve your best body yet.
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to remove fat from certain areas of the body using suction. During the surgery, a blunt-tipped tube known as a cannula is inserted via small incisions in the skin of the treatment area. Fat is then suctioned out of these areas through the cannula it is moved around under the skin to target specific fat pockets. Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can expect to return home the same day. Liposuction can be done alone, in combination with other procedures, or as part of a mommy makeover. Typical liposuction treatment areas include:
Waist Contouring with Liposuction
Because the waist is near the central part of the body, more than one treatment area may be targeted when using liposuction to sculpt the waist. Liposuction may be used on the back to remove localized deposits of fat in this area, giving you a smooth contour that defines the waist. The abdomen may receive treatment as well to further eliminate unwanted fat.
Liposuction Vs. Tummy Tuck
If you are interested in achieving a defined waist, you may also be considering tummy tuck surgery. Because both procedures can result in a trim and toned midsection, you may be wondering which one will give you the best results. Liposuction can remove excess fat in the midsection, while a tummy tuck eliminates excess skin and reinforces weakened abdominal muscles in the process. If you are not sure which procedure is right for you, one of our skilled surgeons can provide guidance and recommend a customized treatment plan that is right for you.
