Many people experience areas of their body that retain pockets of excess fat that will simply not go away, even with rigorous diet and exercise. Liposuction is an advanced procedure designed to eliminate the excess with successful results. The treatment can be performed in virtually any body area, and works to remove localized deposits of fat. Dr. Timothy Best can help you get rid of excess fat deposits with our state-of-the-art liposuction techniques.
Liposuction is a surgical technique that is often used as a sole procedure, but it can also be used in combination with other techniques. For example: the suctioning of excess fat along the hips can often be combined with tummy tuck surgery to provide a firmer, flatter abdominal area and a more contoured appearance.
As a sole procedure, liposuction ‘deflates’ areas of fatty deposits which are creating unpleasant bulges or thicknesses in order to improve the contour and shape of the treated area. Dr. Best offers the procedure in many areas of the body, for both women and men. Areas commonly addressed include:
- Above the knees
- Love handles
Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and most people are back to normal activities within a week to 10 days. A custom-fit compression garment is worn for up to 4 weeks following surgery, to help decrease bruising and swelling, provide support and comfort, and to improve the final result of the surgery. The incisions for liposuction are typically very small, and Dr. Best will work diligently to minimize any residual scarring.
Patients typically see a noticeable difference quite soon after surgery, and improvement often continues for up to 6 months.
