For some, that little bulge of fat may not budge despite the vigorous attempts at diet and exercise. This can be caused by fat cells that are programmed not to shrink. For those who want to get rid of these fat cells, liposuction may be the answer.
This procedure, also known as suction assisted lipectomy removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas that may include the body, face, or neck. Many have found liposuction a viable option to slim the hips and thighs, flatten the abdominal area, contour the calves and ankles, and reduce or eliminate a double chin.
Dr. Stevens recommends liposuction for people of normal stable weight that have a desire to improve their body contour. It is a viable option and can yield excellent results for those who have the following feelings or conditions:
NOTE: Although liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, it may sometimes be the only option to eliminate fat deposits that are not responding well to diet and exercise.
