For men and women in and around greater Nashville and Franklin, Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S. performs liposuction plastic surgery to help you achieve what diet and exercise cannot. Whether through hereditary, lifestyle or medically-related factors, some people develop and maintain fatty deposits on the body, from anywhere from the neck to the knees, and liposuction performed by RealSelf Top Doctor Dr. Chad Robbins can help you achieve your aesthetic goals by removing this subcutaneous fat from various body regions.
What is Liposuction?
Sometimes despite your best efforts to refine your shape to its ideal proportions through exercise and eating right, stubborn fat deposits can still linger and manage to resist all physical exertions to the contrary. Liposuction, suction assisted lipectomy, and also sometimes called liposculpture, is the most common plastic surgery in the U.S., and is frequently performed on the buttocks, thighs, hips and abdomen, but very frequently it is also used to eliminate fat from the neck, upper arms, calves and ankles, knees, upper arms, breasts and chin. Dr. Robbins performs liposuction as a solo procedure, and also in combination with other body contouring procedures to create enhanced outcomes. By permanently removing fat cells, Dr. Robbins can give you a more refined and proportional contour, and may help you feel more confident and satisfied in your appearance, which, in turn, can enhance your overall quality of life.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction is not a substitute for proper diet and a healthful amount of exercise. Instead, liposuction is an efficacious way of removing stubborn fatty deposits while correcting asymmetrical body region fat distribution so that your clothes fit better, a more youthful appearance emerges, and confidence and self-esteem are boosted as a more toned, youthful contour is restored. The women and men of Nashville who are or may be interested in learning more about liposuction are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Robbins today.
Liposuction Procedure Details
A variety of different strategic surgical approaches are possible when it comes to liposuction, but fundamentally the procedure involves breaking up and then vacuuming out deposits of fatty tissue. A hollow instrument is inserted under the skin, and the excess fat is removed. Dr. Robbins and his nursing staff will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for surgery, and technical information on exactly how your liposuction procedure will be handled based on Dr. Robbins own vast and extensive experience.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, nor is it a solution for cellulite. But you may be a candidate for liposuction if you want to reduce localized fat deposits either as a stand-alone procedure, or in coordination with other body contouring procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck. If you feel that your exercise and diet programs aren’t able to eliminate certain issues, then Dr. Robbins’ liposuction surgical techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
