Affordable liposuction in Long Island targets your trouble spots, but what does that mean? Some patients still have the mistaken impression that this involves removing extra fat with no diet and exercise required. The reality is just the opposite. It takes a lot of hard work to get ready for liposuction, much of which is spent trying new things, failing, and then trying something new or tweaking what works to get over weight loss plateaus on your own. When liposuction is used, it is only once you have reached your ideal weight that you can see the full benefits of surgery. Your trouble spots are most defined when you have built healthy muscle, burned away fat, and worked hard to get the results you want with diet and exercise. When the natural methods are not enough on their own, whether you have a few spots or one spot where fat seems to collect, we can discuss your options for liposuction. For most patients, the total amount of fat removed is approximately 5-10 pounds. If you are ready, though, this could reshape your body to match what you are looking for.
