If you have ever tried to conceal bulges of unwanted fat with shapewear, dark colors, slim-fitting jeans or layers and jackets, you know how disheartening these efforts can be. Clothing and camouflage efforts can’t hide fleshy areas of resistant fat that refuse to budge despite your dedicated lifestyle of healthy dieting and exercise. Doctors Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, offers liposuction to treat those stubborn bulges of fat.
Finally, you can triumph over the battle of the bulge with the professional care of your plastic surgeon at Doctors Plastic Surgery of Chicago. Liposuction is a semi-invasive procedure that is created to improve the curves, shape and contour of your figure. Lipo is perfect for men and women who want to eliminate stubborn fat from their belly, upper arms, thighs, flanks, muffin top and other key areas that are important to them. This procedure is customized to match each client’s cosmetic goals.
The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction targets and removes pockets of bulging fat, providing men and women with beautiful results by eliminating fatty tissue that resists exercise and a healthy diet. When liposculpture, or Lipo, is performed by experienced and skilled hands, the procedure restores youthful curves. The lipo cosmetic procedure is safe, and its permanent results transform the shape of the body by targeting key areas of unwanted fat. Liposuction can also be completed along with other cosmetic procedures to achieve breathtaking results, such as the tummy tuck, Mommy-Makeover, Brazilian Butt Lift and breast augmentation. Your doctor will discuss any medications or supplements that you are currently taking and will provide you with instructions for stopping them before the treatment if needed.
During the Liposuction Procedure
Tiny incisions are made and a special tube, called a cannula, is inserted into the targeted treatment area. Liposuction can be completed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the number of treatment zones, their location and on the volume of fat that will be removed. Lipo is an excellent option for men and women who desire to flatten their abdomen and remove extra inches from their waist, hips or thighs. Several areas can be treated in one procedure. The recovery is usually quick, and patients return home on the same day after liposuction.
Liposuction may be combined with the surgical removal of sagging or loose skin from under the chin, upper arms, belly and breasts. You can discuss this and other body sculpting options with your surgeon during your free consultation.
