What is liposuction?
Liposuction is best described as a procedure used to manually suction unwanted fat from a specific area of a patient’s body. This is done through a small incision in which Dr. Thomas Wiener inserts a long cannula. The cannula suctions out fat from the body and holds it in an external canister for proper disposal. Liposuction is a fast and effective way of improving body contours when excess fat remains after alternative attempts to remove it in a more natural method. Liposuction is permanent, as remaining fat cells do not replicate. However, patients who do not maintain proper diet and activity after their procedure may regain fat as the remaining fat cells can enlarge over time.
Who is a candidate for liposuction?
Patients who want to remove unwanted fat from a targeted area of the body in a permanent manner and is in good overall health might be a candidate for liposuction. We often recommend that patients be within their ideal weight range, and we educate patients on what to expect. Patients should not be using liposuction for weight loss, but for body contouring.
