Even after dieting and exercising, many people are left with stubborn pockets of fat. These can be incredibly frustrating, especially after you’ve worked so hard to get your body in shape. Liposuction is a great way to complete your weight loss journey and further define your contours so that you can feel your most confident self!
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove stubborn fat in various areas of the body. This can help people achieve a smoother contour, a flatter stomach, and an overall better figure. Dr. Diktaban offers several liposuction techniques but, in general, the procedure involves a few small incisions to insert a cannula (hollow tube) under the skin. The cannula suctions out fat cells or dissolves them with radiofrequency technology (laser liposuction), depending on the specific liposuction technique used.
Commonly Treated Areas
Liposuction is popular for many men and women because it can treat excess fat in almost any area of the body. Some of these common areas include:
- Back and bra rolls
- “Love handles” on the hips
- Thighs and buttocks
- Double chin
- Chest (for men)
Patients can receive liposuction procedures on multiple areas during one surgery for the complete body contouring procedure.
What Results Can You Expect?
It’s important to know that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Patients can expect to lose a few inches but not a significant number of pounds after liposuction surgery. This procedure is best for localized pockets of fat and patients should be close to their ideal weight before receiving surgery. Dr. Diktaban will assess the treatment area and discuss your options in more detail at your consultation to determine whether it’s the right time to have surgery.
Maintaining Your Result
Liposuction results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Although treated fat cells are removed and fat cannot grow back, remaining fat cells in the surrounding area can grow with additional weight gain. As long as you stay near your ideal body weight (the weight you were during the time of surgery), your newly sculpted figure will be permanent!
