Liposuction and Weight Loss

Liposuction and Weight Loss

A common misperception is that liposuction is about fat removal or weight loss. This in not the case at all! While fat cells are, in fact, removed during liposuction surgery, the purpose of the fat removal is not to simply reduce the size of the problem area, but to reshape and sculpt the area. The liposuction surgeon is a sculptor and an artist, shaping the body to the patient's desired contours.

If a patient is looking for a simple weight loss solution, then any reputable surgeon would advise them to seek a different kind of treatment. If a patient wants multiple surgeries on their body in the same day, asks for repeated surgeries in the same area, or asks for large amounts of fat to be removed at once, a reputable surgeon should advise the patient of the risks of these types of surgeries and may even refuse to do so.

However, a good cosmetic surgeon performing liposuction surgery can shape legs, ankles, backs, chins, shoulders, arms, and thighs into beautiful contours and curves. Liposuction can give you the hourglass waist you never had, rid you of the saddlebags on your thighs, take years off your face, and even lift and tone your breasts. Liposuction can give you confidence and make you look and feel great.

Not everyone can win the genetic lottery. Sometimes we have those areas that have always bothered us, that we work to hide or camouflage, or spend thousands of dollars on exercise equipment, DVDs, and special “shapewear” to get rid of. With a small investment, you can be rid of that problem area forever, get to show off your body, and stop throwing your money away on useless products.

So if you’re not looking to lose weight, but you want to be in the best shape of your life? Find a board-certified cosmetic surgeon today and talk to them to see if liposuction is right for you.
