Liposuction enables the removal of stubborn accumulated fat. The body sometimes accumulates an excessive amount of fat in certain areas due to the influence of hormones. These accumulations of fat can be disproportional to the rest of the body and are typically unresponsive to diet and exercise. For women the typical trouble areas are the hips, thighs, belly and upper arms. On men this occurs more around the loins, belly and neck. To this end, people have been using this technique for years as a way to sculpt and shape the body and to reduce those fatty pockets.

As the word implies, liposuction literally entails suctioning fat. Modern liposuction techniques, also known as soft-liposculpture, is much less intrusive on the tissue within the treated area. This results in short recovery times and high quality results. Since the removed adipocytes, or fat cells, will not be able to regenerate or come back in any way, the problem of fatty pockets is permanently solved by liposuction. To further enhance the results it is however advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise and clean eating after the surgery.
Liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, while the time depends on the extent of the treated area. In some cases multiple areas will be treated and while it is very tempting to have everything treated during one surgery, there is also a limit to what the body can endure. To this end multiple sessions might be scheduled. Regardless of the extent of your liposuction, you can rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of the procedure.
