One of the most common types of plastic surgery we provide at A-To-Zen Regenerative Medicine is liposuction. Although you may have a healthy diet and exercise regularly, there are certain areas of fat which are resistant to weight loss. Our cosmetic surgeon is Board Certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and may be able to help you today.
These are often called problem areas and can often be addressed by liposuction. This type of surgical treatment can also be used for the purpose of body contouring. Liposuction is appropriate for virtually any area of the body that is holding onto a large amount of subcutaneous fat.
There are many different areas which can be treated by liposuction treatments, including:
It is very important that you understand how liposuction is performed and what you can expect before you decide to undergo this type of surgical procedure. Our Bellevue cosmetic surgeon is committed to ensuring that you do not have any false expectations and that you are properly prepared. When we perform liposuction on a certain area of the body, the fat will not return unless you gain a large amount of fat later in life.
The various liposuction procedures we perform include the following:
Our Bellevue liposuction procedure involves the removal of fat deposits using a cannula, which is a hollow instrument that is inserted through the skin. In order to be a candidate for liposuction, you must have good skin elasticity and not flappy or loose skin.
This procedure can also be performed in conjunction with a fat grafting technique, such as in breast enhancement, facial contour, and a butt lift. Liposuction is often used for the purpose of contouring, but it is not used in the removal or repair of stretch marks, dimples, or cellulite.
