Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX works routinely with patients to help them in looking and feeling their best. When a patient has worked hard to maintain their ideal weight but still have areas of unwanted fat deposits, they may want to think about the benefits of body contouring with liposuction. Liposuction has been performed for decades in the field of plastic surgery and continues to be the most effective way of manually removing unwanted fat and improving the contours of the body.
What is liposuction?
To understand how liposuction improves body contours, patients will want to fully understand what liposuction is and how it works. Liposuction is the removal of unwanted fat in a surgical manner. Small incisions are made in the treatment area. A wand-like apparatus called a cannula is then inserted into the area and manually suctions out unwanted fat cells. When done by a skilled plastic surgeon, the results will be even and natural-looking, achieving the results patients desire. The fat cells are collected in a canister and properly disposed of by the practice.
How does liposuction improve body contours?
By removing unwanted fat from the body, the areas are improved dramatically in a single appointment. This procedure is best for patients who are already leading active, healthy lifestyles and are within their ideal weight range. It is vital that patients understand that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but specifically used for the treatment of unwanted fat deposits in areas where it may be resistant to diet and exercise alone.
Where can liposuction be performed?
Any area of the body where unwanted fat remains may be treated with liposuction. This includes the abdominal area, the buttocks, the thighs, the upper arms, and even underneath the neck to reduce the appearance of a double chin. During a consultation appointment, patients can speak to the doctor about possibly treating more than one area at the time of their procedure to reduce costs and downtime.
