Liposuction is a procedure used to sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from localized areas. By using a high vacuum device, Dr Reichner can suction fat from the legs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck. Liposuction has become the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States due to the fact that is leaves minimal scarring. Although no type of liposuction is a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to traditional weight-loss methods. To get the most from liposuction, you should be average weight with extra fat localized in specific areas, have stable weight for 6 months or more, and have good skin tone and elasticity.
The time required to perform liposuction may vary considerably, depending on the size of the area, the amount of fat being removed, the type of anesthesia and the technique used. Two of the procedures, ultrasound-assisted liposuction and tumescent liposuction, are the most commonly used techniques for liposuction. During liposuction, localized deposits of fat are removed to re-contour one or more areas of the body.
