Do you dream about a beautifully proportioned body with no bulges…no thunder thighs…no spare tire? Liposuction may be right for you if…
- Diet and exercise won’t budge stubborn fat from your “problem areas.”
- Bigger than average thighs, tummy, calves, or buttocks run in your family…they are determined by your genes.
- Aging or weight gain have resulted in a “spare tire,” “granny arms,” or a “double chin.”
- You need to “jump start” weight loss.
- You feel embarrassed about your appearance, you hide areas of your body with loose clothing, and your self-esteem is suffering.
Whatever the reason for deciding to have body contouring with liposuction, this surgery will permanently remove fat cells and create dramatic results.
Almost any area of the body can be treated with liposuction, but the most common areas are the tummy, saddle bags (outer thighs), buttocks, inner thighs, inner knees, calves, ankles, love handles, upper arms and double chin (neck).
Dr. Collini performs liposuction as an out patient procedure at the Renaissance Center in our own state-of-the-art surgery suites. This operation is usually performed under I V conscious sedation and takes from 1 to 4 hours to complete, depending on the number of areas needing treatment.
During the liposuction procedure, fat is removed from various parts of the body with a small suction tube. The tube is placed through a very small incision (¼ inch) which is placed in an inconspicuous, hidden spot such as the belly button or buttock fold. Liposuction is not meant to be used as a substitute for a wholesome diet or a fitness/weight reduction program. Rather it compliments these activities by contouring and smoothing exercise-resistant and diet-resistant fat deposits.
Liposuction is frequently combined with other body contouring surgeries such as a tummy tuck.
