Fat deposits can be stubborn. Muffin tops, love handles, and chicken wings often don’t budge, even though you exercise, eat healthily, and are at your ideal weight. If you’re bothered by these pesky pockets of fat, it could be time to consider liposuction.
Meridian Plastic Surgery in Meridian, Mississippi, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Lee Thornton and Dr. Mark Elliott are experts in performing liposuction.
Liposuction removes fat from target areas for a permanently slim look. And, the state-of-the-art methods used today are minimally invasive, boast a relatively quick recovery, and help you eliminate stubborn fat for the long term.
During liposuction, fat cells are mechanically disrupted by an instrument called a cannula and are then removed from the body via suction. At Meridian Plastic Surgery, we use the latest, minimally invasive liposuction techniques to reshape and contour your body.
Liposuction can be used in all the usual trouble zones, including:
Liposuction isn’t intended to help you achieve significant weight loss. Instead, it’s a helpful tool to streamline a body that’s already at or near a goal weight. If you’ve been able to maintain a healthy weight for about six months but are still unhappy with the way you look in certain areas, talk to us about your liposuction options.
The number on the scale indicates a healthy size, but you don’t like the way certain clothes fit, still have a poochy belly, or have rolls of fat along your back that just won’t diminish — no matter how little you eat and how hard you work out.
Diet and exercise can help you lose overall weight and firm up underlying muscles, but certain areas may just never slim down. Liposuction allows for targeted weight loss and body sculpting.
Liposuction removes unwanted fat cells. Once they’re gone, the fat cells can’t regenerate or plump back up. As long as you live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a relatively stable weight, you can enjoy a slimmer, sculpted body for the long term.
Liposuction is not always a stand-alone procedure. Patients often combine this treatment with other plastic surgeries, such as a facelift, breast reduction or lift, or a tummy tuck.
Liposuction can give your self-confidence a significant boost. If you’re ready to enjoy the body you’ve always wanted, call Meridian Plastic Surgery at 601-693-7742, or book your appointment online today.
