When liposuction is best used for contouring the body
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
At Sasson Plastic Surgery, Manhattan and Great Neck, NY area patients interested in achieving better body contours and targeting unwanted fat in specific areas are encouraged to speak to our provider about liposuction.
What is liposuction?
When excess fat develops on the body, it can be problematic to remove with diet and exercise alone. There are specific areas where stubborn fat cells can remain, including the thighs, abdomen, love handles, and arms. With the use of treatments such as liposuction, Dr. Homayoun Sasson can remove these unwanted pockets of fat manually. Liposuction is a treatment that uses a cannula, or a small tube, that is inserted into the body and used to essentially “vacuum” out unwanted fat. The treatment is done as an outpatient procedure with the doctor, and can be used on many areas of the body to improve contours.
Who is a candidate for liposuction?
Patients with unwanted fat on the body may want to ask their doctor about the benefits of undergoing liposuction. Patients should be in good overall health and within their appropriate body weight. It is important that patients understand that liposuction is not used for weight loss, but rather body contouring. Determining candidacy is done during the initial consultation and evaluation with our team.
Why might liposuction be best for a patient?
Some men and women who have followed a strict diet and exercise regimen to maintain their appropriate weight may find that there are areas of the body that are not responsive to these changes. These stubborn areas of fat may not budge with traditional diet and exercise. With liposuction, patients will not only remove the unwanted fat from the specific areas of the body, but they can also improve their overall contours for more attractive curves and overall appearance.
