LIPOSUCTION While most patients can manage excess fat on the body with diet and exercise, there are some trouble spots that might seem stubborn and resistant against these changes. In situations such as this, adult men and women in Virginia may start to consider the benefits of plastic surgery solutions such as liposuction. Liposuction has always been a popular treatment for those who need to remove pockets of fat from specific problem areas, such as the stomach, buttocks, flanks, arms, and thighs. Why choose liposuction? Liposuction is best used to address unwanted fat on the body, and it can be extremely effective for many patients who are unable to see results from diet and exercise alone. The procedure has been used for decades in directly removing fat from the body using an incision point and cannula that suctions out fat cells for permanent removal. In doing so, patients can improve the body contours and enjoy wearing more revealing or fitted clothing with confidence. Liposuction is: • Safe • Effective • Affordable • Reliable • Fast Many patients find it to be an easy method of achieving their desired body contour goals after achieving other results with diet and exercise. What can I expect after liposuction? Liposuction is a treatment that our doctor can perform on different areas of the body. Some patients might have a specific focus, while others might want to have liposuction done on several areas at once. During the consultation appointment, this can be discussed. Patient will be given aftercare instructions to closely follow after their procedure to reduce the risk of complications such as infection. Patients will also need to take some time off of certain activities such as work and exercise as they recover. The doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate the final results and ensure patients are satisfied with the results achieved.
