Most liposuction patients have undergone the procedure primarily to treat excess amounts of fat in their waist and hip area. Unwanted fat or “flab” can appear on multiple areas of the body, including the arms, inner thighs, love handles, and neck. Although most patients focus the procedure on specific areas, it is popular and possible to perform a full body treatment.
Dr. Alan Heller holds 30+ years of experience performing liposuction that targets multiple areas of the body. These include abdomen, thighs, knees, face, neck, and leg areas. The procedure removes fatty tissue from these locations through a suction tube known as a cannula. After an incision has been made, the cannula is inserted to break up fat cells and remove them.
Following the procedure, the incision is sutured or allowed to heal. The incision can be left open to reduce any swelling or bruising that may occur after surgery. The results can dramatically improve your appearance and create a more contoured body shape. It can also lead to improved health, because less fat on the body carries less risks of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or other health concerns.
To attain the best results, patients are encouraged to maintain their new look through diligence. Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It is important to maintain good diet and exercise to prevent fat from returning.
