Despite a balanced diet and exercise, we are genetically programmed to maintain fat deposits in certain parts of our body. Even at our thinnest, these "trouble spots" can be annoying and frustrating, and may keep us from looking and feeling our best. There is little that can be done to change this, no matter how much you work out and watch what you eat. At Advanced Aesthetic Associates in Scottsdale and Phoenix, liposuction can help eliminate these stubborn areas of fat and allow you to achieve the body that you have worked so hard to attain.
Liposuction, or liposculpture, remains one of the great advances in cosmetic body contouring surgery. Liposuction has been around for over 20 years, and when performed properly it is very safe and highly effective. This procedure is more popular than ever, thanks in large part to the many advances that have made it safer, more effective, and more comfortable. Liposuction can improve the appearance of the abdomen, back, hips, thighs, arms, legs, and even the face and neck by improving contour and creating a more proportional shape. It can be performed as an individual procedure or in combination with other body and breast contouring surgeries like breast lift and tummy tuck.
Your Liposuction Procedure
There are many forms of liposuction available, including power-assisted liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction, all of which permanently remove unwanted fat from the treated area. All forms of liposuction surgery at our Phoenix and Scottsdale practice involve injecting tumescent solution into the fat to prepare the area for liposuction, and then removing the fat through very small incisions that are only a few millimeters long. The tumescent technique improves patient comfort, decreases bruising and swelling, and allows for more precise fat removal, even in smaller areas.
Some liposuction patients may also be candidates for fat grafting, which uses the fat that is removed by liposuction from the unwanted areas to increase fullness and volume in other parts of the body. This is a particularly good solution for women who desire liposuction as well as buttocks rejuvenation/shaping.
If you are frustrated with stubborn areas of fat, or if you would like more information about other procedures such as breast augmentation, Dr. Prichard, Dr. Repta, Dr. Andres and Dr. Bajnrauh are available to discuss the options that are best suited for your individual needs and goals.
