Remove localized fat with the liposuction procedure
- Posted on: May 15 2020
While diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight, it doesn’t always help with the contouring of the body. Additionally, some patients deal with localized areas of fat that develops on the body, especially around the abdomen and the thighs. In addition, certain parts of the body may be difficult to treat when it comes to fat deposits, such as the upper arms, as there is no way to target localized areas with traditional lifestyle changes. In situations such as this, Dr. Matthew J. Trovato and his team in Manhattan may suggest liposuction.
How does liposuction work?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can be performed on adult men and women who are within their ideal weight range but want o remove areas of localized fat deposits. The procedure uses a special device called a cannula which is inserted into the skin and essentially vacuums out fat cells in the treatment area. By doing so, localized areas of fat can be removed to achieve better body contours.
What areas can be treated with liposuction?
Many of the patients who visit the office of Dr. Matthew J. Trovato will do so in order to treat common areas such as the upper legs and abdomen. The procedure can be used elsewhere, and has been used to address:
- A double chin
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Back fat
Who is a suitable candidate for liposuction?
Most adult patients who are healthy and want to address persistent fat deposits are a good fit for liposuction. Patients should also be free from any comorbidities that may impact their ability to heal properly, and should already be committed to a healthy lifestyle including a nutritional diet and regular exercise. Patients need to understand that liposuction is not considered a weight loss solution, and is completed primarily as a body contouring treatment.
