How does liposuction work?
Liposuction is an excellent procedure to contour the body by removing persistent pockets of fat. Expertly performed by Dr. Staebel, liposuction can reshape specific areas of the body, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image. In many cases, liposuction is used alone, in others it is used in combination with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck.
What benefits can I expect from liposuction?
Despite healthy habits and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have disproportionate body contours due to localized fat deposits. Liposuction surgery at Georgetown Plastic Surgery can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including: the abdomen and waist, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, neck, back and chest, and calves and ankles. Liposuction is not a replacement for regular exercise and good eating habits. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
People with persistent fat deposits, who exercise regularly, are the best candidates for liposuction.
You are an ideal candidate if you are also a non-smoker and are:
- An adult within 30% of your ideal weight with firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone
- A healthy individual without any life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
- A person with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
If you are unhappy with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, liposuction may be for you. This procedure can work wonders for both women and men. Contact Georgetown Plastic Surgery at 512-686-1650 for a initial consultation with Dr. Staebel.
The Vaser Lipo System
VASER utilizes ultrasound energy for minimally-invasive aesthetic body contouring that yields dramatic results with less pain and downtime of traditional liposuction.
One-of-a-kind Precision Body Sculpting
During a VASERlipo procedure, the area to be treated is filled with a medicated solution. The fat cells are then treated with ultrasound energy and are removed from the body through a gentle suction process. The surrounding tissues are left intact, giving you the smooth contours you want with less pain and recovery time than traditional liposuction.
