Liposuction involves the removal of fat cells via cannula – small, thin tubes that Dr. Leverett skillfully uses to suck out unwanted fat. Fat cells can be removed via a variety of different ways – such as melting them with laser heat or using a diluted solution to break up the cells from under the skin. No matter which method is used, the resulting fat is suctioned out of the body, giving you a more toned shape and an improved appearance.
While liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, it has helped many people who try and try to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. These include your upper arms, stomach, and abdomen, hips and thighs. Once fat cells are removed by liposuction, they will not reform in the area they were taken from.
