Also known as lipoplasty and body contouring surgery
Liposuction surgery sculpts your body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures.
Excess fat may remain after considerable diet and exercise. This fat tends to accumulate in the lower abdomen, hips and thighs in women, and “love handle” areas in men. Liposuction or liposculpture is a procedure that removes this unwanted fat utilizing suction via minimal incisions.
Sometimes this is accompanied by other surgical procedures like a “tummy tuck” to achieve a more desired result. The process is referred to as body contouring. Dr. Dardano will provide you with information about these procedures and advise you as to which will be best suited for you.
When to Consider Liposuction
- If you have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of your body.
- If you would like more definition or a sleeker contour in certain areas of your body.
- If your skin elasticity is good (Liposuction removes fat, but does not tighten skin).
