Stubborn fat can be hard to part with, even with a commitment to dieting and exercise. Sometimes the only way to get rid of it is with liposuction.
Liposuction is a type of body sculpting, or body contouring, to remove excess fat from areas of the body such as the stomach, hips, buttocks, and even back, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles. Some people get lipo on their upper arms, cheeks and neck.
Fat is NOT Phat
You exercise like you’re training for the Olympics and diet like you’re trying out to become a weight loss spokesperson. Still, localized fat deposits in certain areas of your body seem to linger. Stop beating yourself up. Sometimes the condition is inherited and there’s not much you can do. Liposuction can help.
Here’s how it works. Your surgeon makes smalls incisions and goes in with a suction tube to break up and remove fat deposits. The procedure varies from person to person, depending on how much fat there is, and where on the body it’s being performed. Recovery can range from just a few days to weeks. You’ll have to wear a compression garment for some time after your surgery.
Liposuction can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures, including breast enhancement, tummy tucks, localized thigh and buttock lift procedures. Lipo can also be performed on several areas of the body at one time.
