Body contouring or liposuction is a surgical method of targeted body fat removal. Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a viable solution for weight loss or major fat reduction. However, when a person’s body weight has stabilized and traditional fat reduction efforts have been exhausted, liposuction can reduce persistent fat deposits. Men and women typically have different areas of concern, and most can be improved significantly with this relatively simple procedure.
Liposuction is best suited for patients who have diet-resistant areas of excess fat. Obese patients are not considered ideal candidates for the procedure. We have found that the best liposuction results are obtained when patients have made efforts to get to a healthy weight before surgery.
