Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that is specifically designed to remove stubborn body fat that does not respond to even rigorous exercise and stringent diets. Conventional liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses suction to remove fat from various areas of the body. Smartlipo laser liposuction surgery in New York City is a minimally-invasive option that comes with minimal downtime and provides excellent body contouring results. The FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation uses three laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm) to liquefy fat, coagulate tissues, reduce bleeding, and tighten skin.
If you are trying to get rid of stubborn fat and shape your body, liposuction can provide the solution. The right candidates for liposuction are those who are at a stable, healthy weight, and are concerned about excess fat that is resistant to even rigorous diet and exercise. However, Smartlipo laser liposuction surgery in New York City does not affect your ability to gain or lose weight.
What Liposuction Can Do
Remove stubborn fat from all areas
The procedure can address unwanted fat in both large and delicate areas of the body.
Liposuction is a great option for those looking to get rid excess fat, which doesn’t budge even with stringent diets and rigorous workouts. It effectively removes unwanted deposits of fat in the stomach area, love handles, lower back, arms, thighs, neck, face, ankles and more.
Enhance your appearance
Whether your concern is muffin tops, love handles, or saddle bags, liposuction can help. By removing stubborn fat from various areas, liposuction can produce significant improvements in your overall body contour. By removing excess fat, liposuction flattens bulges and sculpts your body to the desired shape.
What Liposuction Can’t Do
Help you lose weight
One common misconception is that liposuction can help with weight loss. The procedure can only help those who are close to their ideal weight and have failed to eliminate those last few pounds through diet and exercise. You need to maintain a stable weight for long-lasting results.
Prevent weight gain
Though liposuction can permanently remove fat from your body, it cannot prevent you from gaining weight in the future. The only way to prevent weight gain after liposuction is to adopt a healthy lifestyle, eat a nutritious diet, and exercise regularly.
Remove excess skin
Conventional liposuction surgery can’t remove or tighten sagging skin. However, liposuction can be combined with an arm lift, body lift, or other surgical procedure to remove sagginess and tighten the skin. Loose skin around your waist, can be fixed with tummy tuck surgery, which tightens loose muscles and removes any excess skin. However, Smartlipo laser liposuction can tighten skin.
While liposuction can remove unwanted fat very effectively, it cannot rid of cellulite. It can even make the dimpling more obvious. However, according to American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), adding a laser treatment to liposuction may help get rid of cellulite. Laser liposuction may improve the appearance of cellulite.
