Slim Down with Liposuction

or, “lipo,” is a very popular body contouring procedure that utilizes very small incisions to access the fat cells that reside beneath the skin. These cells can then be removed by gently knocking them off of their normal attachment to your skin and suctioning them from the body with a thin metal tube inserted through the small incisions.

Liposuction has gained great popularity in the realm of plastic surgery for its ability to sculpt the body without the need for large incisions and invasive surgery. This approach results in a more rapid recovery and patients can get back to enjoying their lives. The patients that we plastic surgeons see are healthy and have worked hard with diet and exercise to lose weight.

Unfortunately, sometimes that isn’t enough to get rid of stubborn fat deposits in certain areas under the skin. The body’s metabolism changes with time and patients will note that despite being at their ideal weight, they continue to see an excess of fat in their flanks or abdomen. The upper arms and thighs can be problem spots as well. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but, in the right person, can help sculpt the physique they imagined when they embarked on their journey toward better health with diet and exercise.

“I want to say Thank you to Dr. Heath and the staff at Midsota. Every time I came into the center I was welcomed. Dr. Heath made me feel very comfortable discussing my options for breast reduction. I was kept well informed and felt very safe and secure during the procedure and all of my office visits.”
