Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery where fat is removed from a particular area of the body by dissolving it and then sucking it out with a tube. Liposuction can be performed on different areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and backs of the arms.
Liposuction removes the fat from your body using suction. During liposuction in Annandale, small, thin, blunt-tipped tubes (cannula) are inserted through tiny cuts in the skin. Fat is suctioned out through these tubes as Dr. Nickodem moves the tubes around under the skin to target specific fat deposits.
The benefits of liposuction include:
- Safe removal of fat
- Improved appearance
- Reduction of cellulite or improvement in the appearance of cellulite
- Improved health, usually associated with fat loss
- Boost in self-esteem
- Sculpting areas of the body that even exercise and diet don’t seem to impact
To add to its effectiveness, liposuction can be paired with a myriad of complementary procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck and even facial plastic surgery.
Advances in technology and techniques have made liposuction safer than ever, but as with any medical procedure, it does carry certain risks. Because every patient has different, specific needs they wish to address, liposuction results will vary from person to person depending on their goals. It is important to find a cosmetic surgeon who can help you evaluate the benefits and risks in your specific case.
