Weight loss is hard. We know it and you know it too. Whether you’ve tried the Atkins diet or the latest dieting craze, you still haven’t lost all of the weight that you want to lose. You’ve made progress, definitely, but you just can’t seem to lose the rest. You’ve hit a permanent plateau.
This is where Liposuction comes in. Liposuction plastic surgery is an excellent treatment that can help patients lose those last pounds by removing fat tissue from the body, primarily the midsection. Body contouring is a part of the Liposuction process and it allows plastic surgeons to mold the skin around the midsection into an aesthetically pleasing look so that a person has perfect proportions.
The Body Contouring Process
After liposuction surgery, your body will have a new aesthetic that is not just pounds lighter but that also has a different shape. The underlying support tissue in the body is altered during a liposuction procedure.
Once the fat tissue has been removed and the area is finished, the plastic surgeon will work to reshape the underlying support tissue into a smooth look. This smoothing of the body’s contours will provide a more aesthetic look and give you back your body’s proportions. Instead of fat sticking out your back or your sides, the area will be smooth.
Body contouring is one of the biggest benefits of liposuction because people who lose weight are not always able to reshape their body into a pleasing shape, but liposuction has that ability. You will emerge from surgery with a body that is lighter, smoother, and has a proportionate shape.
A Liposuction procedure is an excellent procedure for those who need help with their weight loss and body goals. Liposuction works to remove excess fatty deposits in many areas of the body and improves the contours of the body through the body contouring process.
Liposuction is used on the localized fat deposits in many areas of the body including the hips, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, neck, chin, calves, and ankles. The exact locations that Liposuction will be used depends on the treatment plan put together by both you and your plastic surgeon. Every individual’s body is unique and every individual’s body goals are unique so consultations for this procedure are important.
Liposuction can be combined with several other procedures if patients are interested in achieving other body goals. Many patients choose to combine a Liposuction procedure with one of the following procedures: facelift, breast reduction, breast augmentation, or tummy tuck.
