How liposuction is used to contour the body

Some patients who spend hours a week working out or preparing healthy meals may find that certain areas of their body still tend to be imperfect. Diet and exercise can only accomplish so much when patients are facing weight loss and body contours. With liposuction, patients can target fat cells in a specific area that may be stubbornly opposed to changing. Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that is best used on these areas to improve body contours.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a treatment during which Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee will place a wand-like device called a cannula into the skin of the treatment area. This cannula suctions out fat cells in the area to provide permanent results. The procedure is best used on parts of the body such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Upper arms
  • Neck

Liposuction has been used for decades in helping patients reduce fat in a specific area of the body that has not responded to traditional methods. It is not a weight loss treatment, though many patients notice a drop in weight when large areas of fat have been treated with this procedure.
