While regular exercise and a healthy diet are the most effective means of controlling and reducing body fat, our bodies can stubbornly resist even the most stringent attempts, making it difficult to eliminate isolated deposits of fatty tissue. The best solution may be liposuction, a safe and effective surgical procedure.
During the procedure, your surgeon uses a specially designed surgical instrument to remove excess deposits of fat. Liposuction requires only small incisions and with modern techniques, any bruising and swelling during the recovery period can be minimized.
It is important for Forth Worth and Weatherford plastic surgery patients to remember that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, but an opportunity to achieve a more attractive shape through body contouring. You need to be close to your ideal body weight to be an good candidate. It is important to have the right goals and expectations – contouring, slimming and reshaping rather than weight loss or seeing a smaller number on the scale.
