Liposuction and Weight Loss
As we age and move through the various stages of life, the body changes. Maybe you’ve recently given birth. Perhaps you’ve reached your weight loss goal but are left with a few remaining pockets of fat that concern you. It can be very difficult to shed certain stubborn areas of fat, no matter how diligently you diet and exercise. For many, it can be a real struggle to restore a youthful, curvy figure.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure used to remove excess fat. The surgical procedure breaks down and removes the fatty layer under your skin to give you a more sculpted figure. Liposuction has helped restore the confidence of thousands of men and women, and when performed correctly, produces a stunning result.
Is liposuction a good weight loss treatment?
There are many reasons to choose to undergo liposuction, but it is important to realize that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. Liposuction will not significantly reduce weight. It is designed to remove small areas of targeted fat; it will not modify current weight as fat does not weigh enough for you to see any significant changes on the scale. The best candidates for a liposuction procedure are healthy individuals who are close to their ideal weight. Ideally, you already eat healthy foods and exercise regularly.

Liposuction involves inserting a small, hollow, and thin tube with a blunted tip, also known as a cannula, into the target area through a small incision. The excess fat is broken up and suctioned through the tubes, improving the overall contour of your body. The most common areas addressed include the abdomen, chin, neck, back, arms, and legs.
