Even with diet and exercise, many men and women in the Littleton, Colorado area who are faced with excess fat on the body may find themselves discouraged at the results. There are many areas of the body where fat deposits tend to be more stubborn and difficult to remove, including the midsection. In situations such as this, the team at Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics encourages patients to consider the benefits of liposuction.
What is liposuction?
Many patients have heard of liposuction and know that it is a treatment for unwanted fat. However, they may be incorrectly educated that this procedure is used for weight loss. While some weight loss may occur with the removal of unwanted fat, the primary goal of liposuction is to improve body contours. Liposuction is performed with the use of a small tube called a cannula attached to a suction device. Dr. Lisa Hunsicker will insert the cannula into the area of treatment through a small incision, and strategically remove unwanted fat from the body. When done correctly, the results are smooth and natural-looking.
Why choose liposuction?
There are several reasons why a patient may choose liposuction for themselves. Liposuction:
- Is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted fat
- Improves skin laxity
- Removes localized areas of fat in both the body and the face
- Sculpts the body and improves overall body shape
- Provides removal of unwanted fat in one appointment
- Renews a patient’s self-confidence and self-esteem
Who is a candidate for liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are adult men and women who are unhappy with areas of localized fat deposits on their body. Patients should be within their ideal weight range and have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with treatment. A consultation visit and initial evaluation is recommended to determine candidacy.
