Sculpting Your Body With LIPOSUCTION

by Todd Case | Jan 30, 2014


"I Want to Get Rid of My
Annoying Stubborn FAT !"

What can I do?

According to the University of Oxford, it takes 3 hours for fat to be stored in the cells around your waistline.  Often times those annoying stubborn pockets of fat appear and leave a once flat stomach with tiny bulges that just won't go away. Whether you have unwanted fat, struggled with your weight, or experienced fat distribution changes with age, some people may have disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits.

        Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce
        localized fat deposits of the:

               Abdomen and Waist
               Hips and Buttocks
               Upper Arms
               Inner Knee
               Chest Area
               Neck Area
               Calves and Ankles 


Sometimes liposuction is performed alone or may be combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast reduction or a facelift.  To maintain your results, remember to exercise and eat healthy.  Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

What Happens During Liposuction?
Medications are typically administered for your comfort, the choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.  Sterile liquid solution is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma.  A thin hollow tube, or cannula is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion.  The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
