Liposuction is a valuable tool for men and women who have not been able to achieve the results they desired through simple diet and exercise. We are all genetically programmed to gain weight and hold on to it in specific areas of our bodies. Some people struggle with stubborn pockets of fat in the mid-section, while others find they can never seem to lose weight on their thighs, or arms, or buttocks. Liposuction is performed using tiny incision through which a long, skinny tube called a cannula is inserted and sucks out the excess fat. It should be mentioned that Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss method, but rather a way to target specific pockets of fat.
Ideal candidates for Liposuction are in good health with a specific area of fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise. Patients who undergo Liposuction (after recovery) will need to continue a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regime in order to prevent fat from piling on elsewhere on the body. If the patient eats well and exercises the Liposuction results can last a long, long time and that stubborn pocket of fat will be gone for good. Ready to learn more?
