Lipoplasty (more commonly known as liposuction) targets unwanted fat deposits commonly located in the neck, lateral breasts, abdomen, hips or thighs. While diet and exercise are the hallmark of any weight loss strategy, a liposuction can selectively target areas of fat in your body that do not respond well to diet and exercise alone.
Where a tummy tuck uses a long incision to remove excess skin, liposuction uses a few small incisions to gain access to the fatty deposits. A thin tube then removes the fat cells permanently in order to enhance contour. Often, liposuction is performed in addition to other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, neck rejuvenation, or others.
Many are surprised to learn that liposuction permanently removes fat cells and can serve as a powerful reinforcement to continue a lifestyle of a healthy diet and exercise. An active lifestyle and a healthy diet are critical components to ensuring that your results last.
Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure and most people recover quickly and return to work within a few days and resume all normal activity within 2 weeks.
