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.
