What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a procedure that contours the body by removing unwanted fat and inches from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in the body only shrink – they do not disappear. Liposuction actually removes the fat cells from your body.
Dr. Greenberg utilizes a unique combination of tumescent liposuction, along with external ultrasound and power-assisted liposuction. Used in conjunction, these methods offer the patient smoother contours, quick recovery, and minimal pain and bruising. There will be a noticeable difference immediately after liposuction, and your new contours will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you gain weight after liposuction, it will distribute itself evenly throughout the body and will not settle in the same problem areas. There are myriad benefits of liposuction that patients enjoy following their procedure. For patients interested in non-surgical treatments to reduce body fat, SculpSure® may be more appropriate.
