What is Liposuction?
Liposuction (lipo) is an outpatient procedure designed to remove specific pockets of fat. By no means is it a substitute for diet and exercise. However, liposuction can remove those stubborn areas of fat that seem to persist no matter how long you spend in the gym. In order to see the most dramatic results, a patient should be at or near their goal weight before the procedure. This enables Dr. DePerro to fine tune the body’s contours with liposuction and produce the best aesthetic results. This contouring produces smooth transitions from one body region to the next and helps to form pleasing curves.
What are the Benefits of Liposuction?
There are several benefits for choosing liposuction as an option to trim down the fat. You may notice a trimmer figure, reduced cellulite, more muscle tone, and sometimes a more positive ego boost to your self-confidence. The benefits are well worth the cost to feel rejuvenated and more youthful. Liposuction is performed on both women and an increasing number of men. The most common regions include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, and arms. Many patients with small pockets of fat choose liposuction as a minimally invasive procedure that enables them to return to work in a few days.
Who is a Candidate for Liposuction?
Patients that are ideal candidates for liposuction should be in good health, at or near their ideal body weight prior to the procedure, relatively healthy, and those who have specific problem areas of that persist despite diet and exercise. As for all aesthetic procedures, the patient needs to be at least 18 years old and have a good understanding regarding the risks and benefits of the procedure.
How is Liposuction Performed?
The procedure involves thin, small, blunt-tipped cannulas that are less than 5 mm in width being inserted through small incisions in the skin. A numbing fluid is injected to improve post op pain control and minimize any potential bleeding. The fat and fluid are then suctioned out via these small cannulas to remove these targeted areas of fat accumulation.
