Diet and exercise are often the two important components of weight loss. However, even with a strict nutrition plan and routine exercise, certain areas of the body impacted by excess fat will not budge! One of the most common areas of complaint includes the abdominal area, where fat tends to accumulate. With procedures such as liposuction, patients can finally achieve their desired body contours and eliminate the extra fat on the tummy.
Why choose liposuction?
It is essential that patients understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Rather, it can be performed when patients are within their ideal weight range but want to target specific areas of the body that are impacted by excess fat. Liposuction is a procedure during which Dr. Thomas Wiener will suction fat out of the body using a tube instrument called a cannula. The cannula is inserted into the treatment area and moved around to remove fat cells. When done properly, many patients will notice a drop in pant sizes that allow them to feel more confident in their own skin!
Liposuction is a procedure that has been performed for years with amazing results, and at our practice ,patients will have their surgery completed by a board-certified plastic surgeon!
What about excess skin?
While liposuction removes excess fat, patients who have a large treatment area may experience sagging skin after the removal of these fat cells. In situations where fat removal is extensive, patients may want to consider removing excess skin after their liposuction has been completed. The combination of liposuction and excess skin removal in the abdominal area is often referred to as a tummy tuck. This treatment removes fat cells from the stomach area, after which excess skin is also removed to ensure a flat, tight abdominal area. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Thomas Wiener can evaluate a patient and determine if excess skin removal may be recommended with liposuction.
