Liposuction is a popular fat reduction procedure used to reduce stubborn fat that has become resistant to diet and exercise. Men and women who are at a healthy weight but struggling to lose fat from specific areas of the body are good candidates for liposuction.
Primary reasons to have liposuction:
- You have reached a healthy weight, but are still struggling to lose stubborn fat from specific areas of the body (such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, or face)
- You exercise regularly and eat right but have plateaued in your fat loss
How Liposuction is Performed
Your liposuction procedure will vary slightly depending on the area(s) being treated and the amount of fat that will be removed. Dr. Kramer will make a series of small, discreet incisions in the skin to access the underlying layer of problem fat. He will then insert a thin tube, known as a cannula, through the skin, and into the fat. Connected to a surgical pump at the opposite end, the cannula is then skillfully maneuvered to break up fat cells and eliminate them from the body.
Once Dr. Kramer has removed the problem fat cells with liposuction, they will not return to the body. With a healthy lifestyle, patients can maintain their slimmer shape for many years to come.
Slim Down with Real Results
As you get older, you may develop areas of stubborn fat that become extremely resistant to diet and exercise. While you may be able to reach a healthy weight, these areas may retain fat and will not slim down as you would like. Liposuction provides a realistic solution to the frustrating issue of stubborn fat, giving you a way to eliminate these lumps, rolls, and bulges for the body you deserve.
Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the face and body, including the cheeks, chin, neck, breasts, abdomen, back, hips, thighs, and more.
However, liposuction is not to be used as a weight loss method, an answer for obesity, or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Kramer has seen the best results with patients who continue to eat right and exercise regularly after their surgery.
Healing After Liposuction
Your liposuction recovery will vary based on several factors including the location of your treatment, the amount of fat removed, and the techniques used for your procedure. Dr. Kramer will go over your specific recovery process in more detail with you in person. Most patients are able to return to work after about one week. The fat that is removed with liposuction will not come back and you will be able to enjoy long-lasting results by continuing to live a healthy lifestyle.
