When you talk to people about the resolutions they make at the start of the year, the vast majority of them will say that they made some sort of resolution to lose weight. The battle to lose weight is a struggle that affects millions of people around the world every single day. There are very few things that can be as frustrating as sticking to your diet, sticking to your exercise routine and still not seeing the results that you want. Many people have stubborn pockets of fat that do not go away regardless of how hard they exercise or how much they diet. For most people, the stubborn pockets of fat are on their abdomen, thighs, arms and buttocks.

If this sounds like your situation, we encourage you to learn more about liposuction. It’s important to note that liposuction is not designed as a weight reduction procedure. Liposuction is designed for individuals who are relatively close to their healthy BMI and are simply struggling with losing fat in isolated areas on their body. It is a body sculpting procedure, not a weight loss procedure.

During a typical liposuction procedure, our skilled surgeon removes excess fat from the treatment area in a careful and precise way. Of course, this is after some type of anesthesia has been administered. The type of anesthesia used will depend on a variety of factors and will be discussed during a consultation.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure. It can give your abdomen, your buttocks, your hips or your legs a smoother appearance. It is a powerful tool for individuals who have not gotten the results they wanted from diet and exercise alone.

Contrary to popular belief, having a lot of excess fat is not what makes you a good candidate for liposuction. In fact, for most people, just the opposite is true. When you are in good shape and you just have a few pockets of fat to remove, your skin is usually firm and elastic. Also, individuals who are in good shape physically and emotionally tend to be happiest with the results.
