Diet and exercise are not always effective in ridding the body of excess fat; some parts of the body continue to store fat despite your best efforts to trim down. Dr. Robert Oliver, Jr. and Dr. Jason Jack of Plastic Surgery Specialists offer liposuction as a means of eliminating stored fat from trouble areas. With completely customized treatments, you can have liposuction performed nearly anywhere on your body to improve your body shape.
- Upper arms
Often, liposuction is used to treat multiple areas of the body at one time so that your whole figure is better proportioned and contoured. Liposuction can eliminate a double chin, saddlebags, “spare tire” waistline, love handles, back bulge, thigh fat, and other fat deposits to shape and define the body in a more attractive way.
Combining Procedures With Liposuction
Liposuction can be performed on its own or with other procedures to maximize the potential for improvement of your figure. For example, liposuction of the thighs, hips, buttocks, or waist can be combined with a thigh lift or tummy tuck to further improve body shape. Liposuction of the chin and neck may be combined with a facelift or neck lift to enhance the appearance of the area and to restore a more youthful appearance. In similar fashion, liposuction to remove upper arm fat may be combined with an arm lift to greatly improve the tone and shape of the upper arms. It can even provide a solution for post-bariatric surgery body contouring for those who have sustained significant weight loss and suffer from sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits.
Candidates for Liposuction
Ideal candidates for liposuction will be at or near their ideal body weight, have realistic expectations, and have stubborn localized fat deposits in one of the areas described above. It is important to note that liposuction is not meant to replace a healthy diet and exercise. However, if you are like the many individuals who have been unable to reach realistic goals with these methods, liposuction can provide a successful solution to enhance your body contour.
