Liposuction in Canton, OH
Even after shedding those last few pounds, pockets of fat will often still cling stubbornly to certain parts of the body. Some individuals may also have an unusually large amount of fat on their abdomens, thighs or buttocks and may struggle to lose it through exercise or diet alone. Liposuction offers a convenient and safe way to rid yourself of unwanted fat in troublesome areas and is routinely performed by Dr. Steven Carp for people living in and around the Canton, OH, area.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure for the removal of unwanted body fat deposits from problem areas. It can be done on virtually any part of the body, and most people choose to have it performed on their stomach, thighs, upper arms and buttocks. Liposuction can be used as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other cosmetic treatments, like facelifts or tummy tucks.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction enables resculpting of the body into a more appealing shape. It can also help eliminate trouble spots and increase self-confidence for many people. Furthermore, liposuction allows for the firm, tight appearance that exercise cannot provide on its own in many cases.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction is a simple process that begins with local anesthesia. After Dr. Carp numbs the area to be treated, he will create several incisions. He inserts a cannula – or long, thin tube – under the skin at these incisions, and the stubborn fat cells are removed using a vacuum-like machine. Once the treatment is complete, Dr. Carp closes and cleans the incisions. In most cases, patients are able to go home and resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Advancements in the way the liposuction procedure is done have made it an even more appealing option than ever due to the minimal downtime compared to how it was performed in previous years.
