Liposuction in Cuyahoga Falls, OH

Some people may find, after fighting off the final few pounds, that parts of their body still look disproportionate. Some areas of the body such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen store greater amounts of fat that may be more difficult to eradicate through diet and exercise. Liposuction is a solution for fat storage in these problem spots, and Dr. Steven Carp is the safe liposuction choice for Cuyahoga Falls residents.

What is Liposuction?

A minimally invasive treatment, liposuction uses suction to remove excess and unwanted fat from the body. Most patients request that fat be removed from the upper arm, stomach, thighs and buttocks, but the procedure can be performed on any part of the body. Though many patients seek just the liposuction, others combine the procedure with tummy tucks and face-lifts to achieve their desired appearance.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction creates a more appealing and ideal body shape by removing unwanted and disproportionate fat. After receiving the treatment, patients often feel a greater sense of self-confidence and relief at having perpetually troublesome body parts finally slimmed. Also, liposuction can produce the tight and firm appearance that other fat-loss approaches have failed to achieve.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a simple and minimally invasive procedure. Patients usually return home the same day after completion of the surgery. The process begins with local anesthesia that numbs the area to be worked on, and then a series of small incisions are made. A thin tube, known as a cannula, is inserted under the skin through these incisions, and a vacuum-like machine then suctions the fat out of the body. At the conclusion of the surgery, the small incisions are sealed and cleaned before the patient is ready to leave.

The liposuction procedure is now more appealing than ever as advances in technology have made recovery from the surgery quicker and less taxing. To find out more about the benefits of liposuction, contact Dr. Steven Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S., at his clinic in Green, OH, which also serves Cuyahoga Falls.
