In spite of regular exercise and a healthy diet, some unwanted fat simply will not go away.

Liposuction is a surgical means of removing stubborn fat deposits to give you the lean contours you desire.

Look Your Best

Unresponsive fat deposits can affect even the healthiest men and women. Liposuction can help you enjoy accomplishments such as weight loss and childbirth to the fullest.

Immediate Results

Although liposuction will require some downtime in order to fully recover, you will be able to notice an immediate refinement in your figure.

Feel Good about Yourself

If stubborn fat makes you feel self-conscious, liposuction can help you love how you look both in and out of your favorite clothing.

However, the majority of practices offer financing options that can make liposuction affordable on most budgets.

Candidacy Requirements

Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it is intended to eliminate small amounts of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. You may be a candidate if you:

  • Have fat deposits in the midsection, arms, thighs, or neck
  • Have sufficient skin elasticity
  • Are less than 20 pounds overweight

Explore Possible Solutions with a Doctor

There are effective alternatives to liposuction. For example, there are injectable treatments such as Kybella® that are used specifically to eliminate fat deposits under the chin. CoolSculpting® is another popular alternative. It involves using a device to freeze fat cells, which are then naturally expelled by the body. However, CoolSculpting removes only a fraction of the fatty tissue that can be removed in a single liposuction treatment.

When diet and exercise fail to eliminate unwanted fat tissue, liposuction can help you love the way you look. Speak to your doctor today if you are considering taking a surgical stance against stubborn fat.
