Even in individuals who maintain good health and a reasonable level of fitness, disproportionate contours and fat deposits may still develop. These may be due to genetics rather than individual health or lack of weight control. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits in specific areas of the body, slimming and reshaping the desired areas to enhance your self-image.A liposuction procedure can reduce localized deposits of fat in the following areas:
- Chin, cheeks and neck
- Calves and ankles
- Hips and buttocks
- Upper arms
- Chest area
- Inner knee
Liposuction can be performed alone, or can be used in combination with other procedures to achieve the desired results.
Candidates for this procedure are individuals with soft tissue looseness in one or more body areas, healthy adults who do not have medical conditions that may interfere with healing, non-smokers and people committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.
The results of liposuction are immediate, but it may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. Results should continue as long as you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
