Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty and affectionately called Lipo is a surgical procedure that slims, reshapes, and contours specific areas of the body. Despite good health and a great workout regimen, some of us may still have to deal with localized fat deposits that regardless of what we do, we just can’t seem to get rid of them. This can be for many reasons including our family genes and not necessarily a lack of weight control or fitness.
What Lipo CAN do for us
Liposuction can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including:
- Abdomen and waist
- Thighs, hips, and buttocks,
- Arms, neck and back
- Inner Knee
- Cheeks and Chin
- Calves and ankles
Liposuction is also used in conjunction with other procedures like breast reduction, tummy tucks, and the Brazilian butt lift to name a few.
What Lipo CAN’T do for us
Lipoplasty is not a cure or treatment for obesity and cannot replace regular exercise and good nutrition. Lipoplasty is more for contouring and less of a weight loss procedure.
Quick Lipo Myths
Liposuction reduces cellulite?
False: Unfortunately this is not true. Liposuction removes the fat that is in the deeper tissue layers but not the superficial fat deposits that contribute to cellulite.
There is a Non-Surgical Liposuction procedure?
False: The fact is, regardless of what we may see on TV or heard from friends all forms of liposuction are surgical procedures. There are many body slimming devices out there in the marketplace, however, there is little evidence on how effective these procedures really are.
