Why choose liposuction as a body contouring option?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2020
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure available with most plastic surgeons in the New York area. However, Dr. Homayoun Sasson and his team at Sasson Plastic Surgery encourage patients to speak to a professional about achieving the results they desire with a trained and experienced provider. Liposuction is one of many procedures used for contouring the body.
What is liposuction?
Dr. Homayoun Sasson describes liposuction as a body contour procedure that is used to focus on the removal of unwanted fat on specific areas of the body. Liposuction is performed by making a small incision in the treatment area, where a long tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is connected to a machine that provides suction and collects the unwanted fat cells from the body. Liposuction is effective at manually removing unwanted fat for the body that might not be responsive to traditional diet and exercise.
Where can liposuction be performed?
Most patients will have liposuction performed on specific areas of their body, such as the stomach, flanks, buttocks, thighs, or even the upper arms. For patients who are younger, excess skin will not be an issue. However, patients who have a substantial amount of fat removed from specific areas of the body will also want to ask about the removal of excess skin. Otherwise, patients may be left with sagging skin due to skin laxity that occurs after the skin has been stretched for a significant period of time. Liposuction paired with skin removal is commonly performed by our team. In addition to areas of the body, patients may consider facial liposuction, specifically to remove unwanted fat underneath the chin that leads to the dreaded “double chin.” This type of liposuction can also improve the contours under the chin and allow patients to have a more attractive profile as well as less fat when they are viewed from the front.
