Losing a significant amount of weight is a remarkable, often life-changing achievement, especially after a long or difficult weight loss journey. Many patients experience new benefits, such as improved health and a sense of accomplishment. Unfortunately, weight loss often leaves behind pockets of excess fat that refuse to budge despite a patient’s best efforts. Charles S. Lee, MD provides an array of cosmetic procedures to help complete your weight loss journey, including liposuction, which is ideal for removing resistant fat deposits.
Who Should Consider Liposuction
Liposuction is a targeted fat-eliminating procedure that can significantly improve your overall appearance after weight loss. Candidates for liposuction share the following characteristics:
- Individuals with stubborn deposits of fat that are unresponsive to diet or exercise
- Individuals who are in good health
- Patients with realistic expectations for their surgical outcome
- Those who do not smoke
- Patients with good skin quality
During your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss your medical history and cosmetic goals with you in detail, including all of your areas of concern. Because liposuction is a targeted procedure, Dr. Lee can use liposuction to improve the following areas:
- Bra line
- Upper thighs
- Upper arms
During the procedure, small incisions will be made in the skin, through which an instrument known as a cannula is inserted. The cannula is attached to a special suction device and Dr. Lee moves it around as he works to eliminate excess fat. The length of the procedure depends on the amount of fat being removed.
After recovery, patients can expect a more toned appearance, free from unflattering bulges that accompany excess fat. Patients will also notice a smooth and shapely contour. While liposuction is not performed as a weight loss treatment, it is an ideal complement to your weight loss journey. Friends and family may even note that you appear more in shape.
