Staying healthy means that you need to eat right, exercise regularly, stay hydrated, and get lots of rest. Doing so will leave you looking younger, more refreshed, and vibrant. Of course, doing all of these things is no guarantee that you’ll your slimmest and trimmest. There’s always that stubborn bit of fat here or there that just won’t go away. Thankfully there’s a solution. Many people come to our Fresno plastic surgery for expert body contouring surgery which is both safe and effective.
The best body contouring option or stubborn bits of fat is liposuction. Liposuction is a surgery that extracts pockets of fat from the body using safe suction methods. Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery but is instead used to help sculpt a slimmer you after diet and exercise has done all it can. When you come to our Fresno cosmetic surgery center, we’ll be able to assess your candidacy for liposuction in more detail.
How Liposuction is Performed
During Fresno liposuction, a special liquid combining anesthetic and a special agent to reduce bleeding is injected into the surgical site. This tumescent fluid will firm up the fat in the area, making it easier to extract. A thin hollow needle called a cannula is then inserted into the treatment site. This cannula uses ultrasonic waves of sound to liquefy the fat so it’s easier to suction out of the body.
Liposuction can be performed on various body parts. Let’s look at this issue right now. Note that all of these options can be discussed in more detail during your visit to our practice.
Liposuction for the Abdominal Area
Liposuction is great for the stomach and sides, reducing fat in the love handle area as well as the gut area. Liposuction is commonly used in combination with tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) in order to achieve a comprehensive enhancement of the body contour.
Liposuction for the Lower Body
The buttocks, hip area, and thighs can all be adjusted thanks to the use of liposuction. Get that tone, trim, fit look you have always wanted.
Liposuction for the Chest and Trunk
The upper body can be greatly enhanced through liposuction. Both breast lift and enhancement surgery for women and male breast reduction can involve the use of liposuction to help tone the chest and frame. In addition, the triceps and upper arms can also be toned with liposuction.
Liposuction for the Face
Liposuction can even be performed safely on certain parts of the face. During a facelift or necklift, liposuction can help improve the overall facial symmetry or appearance. Even the lower eyelid area may have minor liposuction performed to reduce puffiness and bagginess.
