Liposuction is a popular procedure for many men and women because it can target those specific areas of localized stubborn fat that have been resistant to results through traditional diet and exercise. Nearly everyone has that one area of their body that is just much harder to tone- it’s the first place we gain weight and the last we lose it. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions through which a long, skinny tube called a cannula is placed and the fat is sucked out. It is important to understand that Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment. In fact, ideal candidates for liposuction are in good health, at a healthy and stable weight, non-smokers, with a specific problem area of unresponsive fat.
Patients who are already to committed to a healthy diet and exercise regime will be able to enjoy their liposuction results longer. If you are tired of fighting with that one area of fat and are interested in learning more about your options, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Barrett. During your consultation Dr. Barrett will examine you and ask you about your medical history and goals to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
