The Benefits of Liposuction DCJuly 5, 2018
If diet and exercise alone have not been enough to achieve your goals, consider liposuction DC.
Liposuction DC can completely change your appearance by removing fat and flattening your problem areas.
Who Should Consider Liposuction DC?
During liposuction DC, fat is removed through suction utilizing a thin metal tube, or cannula. This process can completely reshape problem areas and drastically decrease the size of areas, such as your abdomen or thighs. This procedure can be a solution for patients who have tirelessly tried diet and exercise without progressing toward their goals. It only takes one to four hours and has a recovery time of only three to five days. Patients also do not need to stay overnight at the hospital.
Good candidates for this procedure are typically within thirty percent of their ideal weight, have firm skin and good muscle tone, and are in good overall health. They should not smoke (or are prepared to quit for the duration of their surgery and recovery) and have one or more problem areas where they would like fat to be removed.
Some patients choose liposuction DC because, while they have otherwise normal body weight, they carry excess weight in a certain area such as the outer thigh region. This weight can be due to any number of causes such as genetics, aging, pregnancy, or prior surgery. Read more about the reasons for choosing this procedure with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Some areas that can be treated include:
- Flanks, also known as love handles or muffin top
- Neck and jawline
- Calves and ankles
