Liposuction sucks out the fatty tissue between the skin and the muscle layers and is an excellent option to help contour the body by removing excess pockets of fat.
Are You a Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is ideal for patients with an overall healthy body weight (BMI less than 35) that have mild to moderate fat stores, such as “love handles” for example.
Liposuction is not a good weight loss strategy, however, as it cannot remove fatty tissue beneath the muscle, which is referred to as visceral fat. That is why it is important to enter a liposuction procedure at a stable and healthy weight, in order to get the best outcome.
There are several different methods of performing liposuction, and one of which is called “Vaser lipo.” Vaser liposuction refers to the use of ultrasound technology to separate the fat from the surrounding tissues in order to make the suction effect less uncomfortable and more beneficial. It also helps to enhance skin contraction once swelling has resolved.
Regardless of the mechanism, liposuction is still the number one way to contour the body by removing fat and to obtain the most optimal results.
