Liposuction is one of the most commonly requested and performed cosmetic surgeries at our Weston, Florida office, and for good reason. Patients who have struggled to lose those last few pounds, even after diet and exercise, often find that liposuction is just the thing to give them the body they want.
If you have struggled with achieving desired results through more conventional forms of fat loss, it may be time to consider liposuction. Please contact The Weston Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery at 954-526-0066 to schedule your consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell.
The Purpose of Liposuction
The purpose of liposuction is contouring the treatment area. This is accomplished through the targeted removal of excess fat deposits. Dr. Harrell utilizes advanced liposuction techniques to accomplish this goal. These same techniques can help reduce trauma, minimize risks of complication, and even encourage skin to shrink to your new contours.
Liposuction techniques offered at our Miami-area office include:
- Tumescent liposuction
- Ultrasonic liposuction
Each of these methods offers unique benefits. The best way to learn which option will produce the results you desire is through a private and informative consultation with our board-certified Ft. Lauderdale plastic surgeon. During this consultation, Dr. Harrell will carefully assess your frame, discuss your options, and help you choose the liposuction method most suitable for your needs.
Picking up Where Diet and Exercise Fail
When you diet and exercise to lose weight, you tend to lose from all areas of the body somewhat equally. There is no such thing as “spot reduction.” All of the crunches in the world won’t give you a six pack if there’s a layer of fat concealing your abdominal muscles.
That’s why those final few pounds can be so frustrating, especially if they’re located in problem areas like the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and back. Liposuction is a proven surgical procedure that can rid you of fat located in hard-to-lose parts of the body – and in so doing, can help produce a toned and trimmed look that can have a profound impact on how you feel, both physically and emotionally, about your body.
Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, nor is it intended for patients who need to lose large amounts of fat. It is, instead, an incredibly effective way to remove small deposits of fat that have stubbornly resisted your weight loss efforts, allowing you to fully realize the desirable shape you have worked so hard to achieve.
Liposuction is not designed to improve physical health, but it can have a positive impact on movement and ability. Following your recovery, capitalizing on improved mobility can help you maintain your new contours. Getting at least three hours of moderate exercise every week and choosing to eat a diet that is high in fruits, vegetable, and lean proteins – and low in sugar, refined carbohydrates, and starch – will help you maintain your liposuction results for years to come. This can be discussed in greater detail as you and Dr. Harrell explore your motivations and goals.
If diet and exercise haven’t gotten you where you want to be, liposuction may offer an effective way to reshape your body.
