Benefits Of Liposuction

A growing number of men and women are turning to liposuction to help them achieve their ideal body. Liposuction surgery is a safe and effective plastic surgery procedure for the removal of stubborn excess fat that has not responded to diet or exercise. Liposuction is among the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures because of how highly effective it is in removing the frustrating fat that lingers even after achieving ideal weight.

According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), approximately 396,048 liposuction procedures were performed in 2015, making it the most popular surgical procedure. Liposuction has reached this popularity because it is effective and offers significant benefits, and it also presents low risk to the patient.

Uses of Liposuction

Liposuction is primarily used for improving aesthetic appearance when desired results are not achieved through healthy diet and exercise. Certain isolated pockets of fat are resistant to the efforts of a healthy lifestyle. These stubborn pockets of fat are most commonly found in the abdomen, upper arms, hips, buttocks, thighs, and flanks (love handles). During a liposuction procedure, a skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Michael Whetstone is able to suction out these fat cells improving on the shape and contours of the body. 

Advantages of Liposuction

At Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery, countless patients have benefitted from the exceptional liposuction procedures performed by Dr. Whetstone. Liposuction, when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, is an ideal solution for improving on body shape and contours. Benefits resulting from a liposuction procedure include:

  • Improved Appearance
  • Smoother Body Contours/Improved Body Shape
  • Removal of Localized Fat
  • Reduced Volume
  • Renewed Self-Confidence and Self-Image

Liposuction is also a procedure that is easily combined with other plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction results are often subtle, as it is not a solution for weight loss, but when performed in conjunction with other procedures, more dramatic results are possible. Among popular procedures combined with liposuction are breast surgery, tummy tucks, and other body contouring procedures.
