Target stubborn fat for a slimmer, more shapely appearance.

Stubborn fat in certain areas of the body is often difficult to lose even when following a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Specialized exercise equipment, slimming creams and weight-loss garments are also ineffective in eliminating this excess fat. Liposuction works by targeting problem areas to remove that stubborn fat and reveal a slimmer, more shapely appearance. 

Our bodies do not produce more fat cells, but when weight is gained, existing fat cells become larger as they store this excess fat. For women, this is more likely to occur around the hips, thighs and abdomen, while men tend to store fat around the waistline. Liposuction is often used to target these specific areas, as well as the face, neck, upper arms, back, chest, buttocks, and inner knees – making it the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States. 

Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons offer the latest liposuction techniques including the traditional suction-assisted liposuction, as well as power-assisted liposuction. Prior to liposuction procedures, Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons also use the tumescent technique to reduce bleeding. These advances in treatment and excellent results have contributed to a greater demand for liposuction procedures. Patients find their clothes fit better and report having greater self-confidence. 

The procedure is commonly recommended for those who are at or near their normal weight, have good skin elasticity and excess fat at specific locations. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, but it can be used to permanently contour an area when diet and exercise are unsuccessful. Without good skin elasticity, liposuction may be used in conjunction with a lift procedure to also remove excess fat and skin. Liposuction is not a good treatment for cellulite. 

The best way to know if liposuction is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Please be assured that scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
