Liposuction in Wadsworth, OH
Sometimes, even after reaching goal weight, certain areas of the body are not in proportion with the rest. Depending on body shape, some people have a build-up of excess fat on their buttocks, thighs and abdomen that does not respond to diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is a safe way to get rid of fat in problem areas, and Dr. Steven Carp can perform this procedure for patients in Wadsworth.
What is Liposuction?
A minimally invasive procedure, liposuction uses suction to remove excess fat from the body. Any body part can benefit from this procedure, but most patients commonly request thighs, buttocks, stomach and upper arms for treatment. Liposuction can be performed on its own or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure including a tummy tuck or facelift.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction allows a change in the body’s shape to be more appealing. It can also boost self-confidence for many patients by helping them alleviate their problem areas. Liposuction produces a tight and firm look that might not be achievable through exercise and diet alone.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction is a simple procedure, and it begins with a local anesthetic. Once the designated area is numbed appropriately, a series of incisions are made. At the incision points, a cannula (thin tube) is placed under the skin, and a vacuum-like machine is used to suction out the fat cells. When the procedure is completed, the incisions are closed and cleaned. Typically, the patient is able to return home shortly after the surgery is completed.
With the many advances in the way liposuction is performed, this procedure is even more appealing than ever, as it requires much less downtime than in the past.
