When stubborn fat forms on your body, it can resist your diet and exercise efforts. Many patients become frustrated with their fat deposits, trying desperately to get rid of it to no avail.
Other patients struggle with yo-yo dieting and lose weight temporarily, only to gain it back again.
If your bulges refuse to budge after repeated attempts, plenty of surgical and minimally-invasively options can eliminate your body fat.
Imagine smoother, thinner contours after one procedure!
What Are My Options?
Procedures to remove excess fat are all slightly different but have the same goal in mind: create a toned, thin appearance.
Liposculpting with Smartlipo® (a laser fiber device) can remove excess fat from select areas of the body by heating the fat to liquefy it, which is removed through a suctioning device (cannula). Sometimes power-assisted liposuction is also used to gently break up the fat and remove it.
Typically, the abdomen, arms, buttocks, calves, hips, and thighs are targeted to reveal a smooth, slim body.
Some cases can benefit from Smartlipo® technology alone. General anesthesia is not necessary for this method, which makes it more appealing for many patients.
Another procedure that does not require general anesthesia is Cellulaze™. Tiny laser fibers are utilized through a small suctioning tube (cannula) to even out fat bumps and dimpling.
Additionally, collagen production is encouraged through this process to stimulate elasticity to improve the skin. Get rid of cellulite with Cellulaze™ treatment!
When excess skin is present around the midsection, tummy tuck surgery removes any residual fatty tissue and loose, hanging skin. Stomach muscles are tightened and pulled together to form a firmer, more toned appearance.
For patients with multiple body concerns, a Mommy Makeover combines different procedures into one surgery. This option can include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgeries such as breast augmentation and breast lift surgery.
