Are you unhappy with certain areas of your body due to excess fat that just won’t budge? The cosmetic body contouring procedure liposuction can do wonders for these areas if you are in good health and considered a candidate for the procedure.

About Liposuction

Liposuction is an extremely popular cosmetic surgery option for both men and women. This fat removal technique uses a cannula, or wand, to extract excess fat cells from problem areas like the stomach, thighs, hips, love handles, back, face, and arms. It is such a great option, too, because it can be used on areas where only a small amount of fat removal is needed. To see what a difference this procedure can make, take a look at some liposuction before and after photos.

Combine Procedures For Big Results

If you are trying to achieve dramatic changes and aiming to resculpt your body, you might consider adding a second procedure to the same surgical experience, such as a buttock lift, arm lift, neck lift, or facelift. For example, patients who are targeting the stomach, thighs or love handles with liposuction often add in a tummy tuck procedure to improve their shape.

Choosing a Liposuction Surgeon

When choosing an experienced plastic surgeon to perform your liposuction procedure, remember that experience counts. Surgeons who have been performing this surgery for many years may be better able to deliver the kind of results you are looking for while maintaining top safety standards and maximum comfort.

Are You a Good Candidate?

If you would like to improve specific areas of localized fat, have realistic expectations about what this procedure can do, and you are in good general health, liposuction may be a convenient body sculpting solution for you. Patients who are within healthy weight ranges or who are slightly overweight are preferable, as liposuction should not be used as a medium for large-volume weight loss.

Liposuction is a time-tested procedure that can be used to help you achieve your ideal proportions while giving your self-confidence a boost. If you would like more information on the incredible benefits of liposuction, feel free to contact Dr. Robert Aycock in the San Francisco Bay Area region.
