Liposuction After Weight Loss


Liposuction After Weight Loss

If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight, you deserve to celebrate this achievement. Unfortunately, many individuals still feel weighed down by stubborn fat deposits after weight loss. 

Traditional weight loss methods like dieting and exercise often don’t fully eradicate small areas of stubborn fat. At Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery, we offer body contouring procedures to resolve this issue. Liposuction is one of the most popular body contouring treatments, and it can help you achieve your desired physique after losing weight. 

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive method of removing fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. Since liposuction is used to precisely target specific areas, it’s highly effective at removing patients’ personal trouble areas. In addition to eliminating excess fat, liposuction can enhance the body contours.

The best candidates for liposuction should have good skin elasticity. Patients with excess skin after weight loss may opt to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction to eliminate the excess skin along with stubborn fat. 

What Does The Procedure Involve?

There are multiple methods of performing liposuction, and Dr. Mosiello will work with you to determine the right approach for your needs. However, regardless of the method you choose, the steps of liposuction are typically the same. Small incisions are made in unobtrusive spots around the targeted areas. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted into the area and the fat is suctioned out. Fine sutures are used to close the incisions.  

If you’ve recently lost weight and are frustrated by pockets of stubborn fat, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Mosiello at Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mosiello can determine whether you’re a candidate for liposuction and help you achieve the physique that you’ve always wanted with this procedure.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
