Reach your Resolution – with Liposuction!

No matter how hopeful your New Year’s Resolutions were back in January, some of them might be nearly impossible to complete. For instance, let’s say your New Year’s Resolution was to have a sleeker, more athletic figure; what happens if stubborn pockets of fat refuse to go away no matter how hard you work out or how long you diet? Thanks to genetics or aging, these stubborn pockets of fat can be the biggest obstacles towards your lean new body. Liposuction, one of the most popular procedures in the world, just might be your way to reach your resolution.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in the world because of its effective removal of stubborn pockets of fat in a diverse range of areas. Liposuction can sculpt everything from the abdomen, buttocks, waist, love handles, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves, knees, and upper arms; and it can do this with a very simple procedure that leaves very little scars. Liposuction works by creating some very small incisions in the treatment area, and then pumping in a solution that protects the tissues, delivers anesthesia, and reduces bleeding and bruising. A small tube called a cannula is then inserted through the incisions and passed back and forth through the treatment area, suctioning fatty tissue away—and voila, a more toned and sculpted figure will emerge once the patient heals completely.

Facial Liposuction

Over time, pockets of fat can appear on our faces that make us look more tired, overweight, and older than we really are. No matter how small these fatty deposits are, they still have ability to affect how you look entirely. Facial liposuction can expertly remove that fat to leave you with sleeker, more contoured facial features. Facial liposuction can work on unsightly jowls, double chins, and thick, sagging necks—allowing patients to have sharper, more refined facial features.

Benefits of Liposuction

Those pockets of fat are there to stay; thanks to physiological changes that happen over time, your body will do its best to preserve those pockets of fat—despite your best efforts. Liposuction can extract that fat to contour and shape your body into the toned and athletic figure it should be. What’s even better is that by completely extracting that fat from your body, liposuction results are long-lasting and secure. However, it’s important to point out that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and maintaining a steady weight is essential to keeping your results.

The impossible just became possible—with liposuction, you can finally reach your resolution of a toned, sculpted body. For a consultation with a liposuction expert, contact the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery for a consultation.
