What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Published on Nov 12, 2018 by Tito Vasquez

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help you finally remove those fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. At Connecticut Plastic Surgery Group, we offer several different liposuction techniques and customize your treatment depending on your unique concerns and goals. Here are some of the benefits of choosing liposuction for your recontouring procedure:

Minimal invasion

Liposuction is considered a surgical procedure, however, only very tiny incisions are required to allow access for the cannula to be inserted and fat cells to be removed. Therefore, the procedure can often be performed under local anesthesia, so you’ll feel like yourself again sooner. There is also very little to no scarring after treatment with liposuction, and patients typically only need a few days to a week off work to recover.

Liposuction can be used virtually anywhere

Stubborn fat can collect on any part of your body. Where ever your pockets of stubborn fat are, liposuction can help! The most popular areas to receive liposuction are the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. Liposuction offers precise sculpting in these areas to help you achieve the toned figure you desire. As well as these larger areas, liposuction can be used in smaller, hard-to-tone areas like under the chin, above the knee, and in the bra area.

The option for skin tightening

Traditional liposuction is effective for those with strong skin elasticity, however, those with some skin laxity can benefit from Vaser liposuction, using ultrasonic energy to liquify fat cells and tighten the skin at the same time! Vaser liposuction requires less trauma on the body, so patients can enjoy a smoother recovery process as well.

Optimize the results of another procedure

Liposuction can be performed alone but is often recommended during another surgical procedure like the tummy tuck or breast lift. Many of these procedures only address loose skin and tissue, so liposuction is required if stubborn fat is present at the same time. By adding liposuction to your recontouring procedure, you can achieve optimal sculpting and toning.
