What Does Liposuction Do?
Dr. Jane Rowley tells her Lubbock patients that on the right person in the right areas, liposuction can have exceptional results. It has been the most popular type of cosmetic surgery in America for the last four years in a row, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. However, despite its growing popularity, many people are still unclear about what the procedure actually does.
Eliminating the Fat
If you are having plastic surgery for fat removal, it’s most likely because you have not had success with traditional diet and exercise. Liposuction targets specific areas on the body that resist your efforts to keep up that healthy lifestyle in Lubbock. A tiny tube is inserted into the problem area, and the fat tissue is suctioned out. While you will lose a good amount of noticeable fat, it is important to remember that it is not a weight loss surgery.
When people are working to slim down, they often put too much emphasis on the numbers on the scale. Yet, for many of us in Lubbock, the figure we want can’t be achieved by losing a certain number of pounds. Liposuction is a way to cosmetically improve the contours of your body. It gets rid of the flab that does not respond to any amount of resisted cravings or time at the gym. Lipo works well on areas of the body that have good skin tone and elasticity. The following are good areas to consider:
- outer thighs
- flanks (love handles)
- submental region (chin area)
