Liposuction in Portage Lakes, OH

Even after effective weight loss due to diet and exercise, certain regions of the body can retain higher levels of body fat that makes those areas look disproportionate. Common problem areas include the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Liposuction is a safe and effective way to eliminate fat in these, and other problem areas and can be safely performed for patients in Portage Lakes by Dr. Steven Carp.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that removes excess fatty tissue from any chosen area of the body by suctioning it out. Patients most frequently request liposuction on the stomach, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Liposuction can be performed in single or multiple areas of the body and also effectively completed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as a face-lift or tummy tuck.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction can successfully contour, tone and tighten the body’s shape by reducing fat in problem areas that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Re-contouring these areas gives the body a more appealing silhouette and can help boost self-confidence in patients who have had little success even with healthy lifestyle choices.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a simple, proven procedure performed under local anesthesia. Once the treatment area is thoroughly numbed, a series of small incisions are strategically made so that the cannula (thin tube) can be inserted under the skin into the excess fatty tissue. The fat cells are suctioned out with a vacuum-like device. Once the procedure is completed, all incisions are cleaned and closed. The patient is able to go home shortly afterward.

Ongoing advances in the liposuction procedure continue to decrease recovery downtime and make liposuction even more appealing than ever before.
