While diet and exercise is a great way to stay healthy, it can also help patients shed a few pounds to maintain their ideal body weight. However, even with diet and exercise, there are many areas of the body that are not impacted and can cause patients to have unusual body contours. Dr. Pamela Carr and the team at Carr Dermatology believe that with body sculpting services, patients can improve their self-confidence with targeted fat removal. At this point, the team may recommend liposuction.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a specialized procedure performed by a doctor that removes unwanted fat from a specific area of the body. This is often done to improve body contours, and is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it provides healthy patients with an effective way of targeting areas of unwanted fat effectively. The treatment uses a device called a cannula, which is a long wand-like device, that is inserted into the skin to reach and suction out excess fat cells. Liposuction is commonly performed on areas including the:
- Upper arms
- Upper legs
With liposuction, the doctor is able to permanently remove unwanted fat cells. This helps patients improve their contours and feel more confident, especially when wearing more revealing clothing. Liposuction is done in a way to greatly reduce the appearance of scars on the skin that can occur after this or other surgical interventions.
What about excess skin?
Liposuction is best done on patients who are within their ideal weight range and still have skin laxity that can keep the area firm after treatment. Patients who have sagging skin after liposuction may not be good candidates unless they are considering more invasive plastic surgeries that remove excess skin at the same time as removing unwanted fat. These treatments are more invasive and require a referral to a plastic surgeon for the best results.
