Tone and Trim the Body with Liposuction
A balanced diet of nutritious foods combined with a regular exercise routine is important to overall body health and the maintenance of a healthy body weight. However, what many learn is that even this healthy combination may not be enough to create the tone or body contour that most patients desire. The fact is that fat can be stubborn and there are certain deposits of fat that simply cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise. In many cases, plastic surgery is the only way to permanently eliminate these stubborn pockets of fat from the body. Liposuction can improve body contour by ridding the body of unwanted fat from localized areas. For those of our Dallas patients who are liposuction candidates, this procedure can slim and tone the body to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.
Am I a Candidate?
Plastic surgeon Ken Smart uses the latest and most advanced liposuction techniques. He offers patients both VASER® Lipo and Smartlipo Triplex™, both known for their gentle technique and their minimal risk of complications. Because these techniques are minimally invasive, almost any patient may be an ideal candidate for liposuction. In order to achieve the best results from a liposuction procedure, patients should be within (or close to) a healthy weight range, with localized areas of the body that require toning and contouring. Because liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, it is important for patients to have realistic expectations for the results of treatment. Liposuction is not meant to eliminate a great deal of excess fat, but it can be very successful in slimming areas of the body to create a more toned appearance.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?
Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body. Patients who wish to slim, tone, or improve the contour of any of the following parts of the body may be good candidates for liposuction treatment:
- Lower back
- Love handles
- Inner or outer thighs
While liposuction is generally a good option for any healthy patient who is looking to trim stubborn fat from localized areas of the body, the only way to truly determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for liposuction treatment is through a cosmetic consultation. At this consultation, Dr. Smart will examine the desired treatment area, discuss and listen to the patient’s specific goals and desired results of treatment, and suggest treatment and techniques that may help patients to reach these goals. Dr. Smart may also suggest additional procedures to further enhance the cosmetic results of liposuction treatment.
