What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is also known as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy. Liposuction removes unwanted fat tissue from the body when diet and exercise alone prove insufficient to give you the shape you want. The most commonly performed plastic surgery in the U.S., liposuction can be used to remove fat cells from almost any part of the body. The abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks are the most common targets, but liposuction is also often used on the neck, arms, legs and breast. Dr. Robbins performs both stand-alone liposuction procedures and liposuction in combination with other surgeries.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction helps you achieve the look you want in a number of ways:
- Permanently remove unwanted fat deposits
- Restore symmetry and contours
- Improve your body’s appearance
- Boost your self-esteem and foster a positive body image
- Create a more youthful shape
How is Liposuction Performed?
Several methods can be used to initiate liposuction. Unwanted fat deposits are identified and broken up through a variety of different techniques. Once the fat has been separated from other body tissue, a thin instrument called a cannula is inserted beneath the skin. This allows the fat cells to be removed with gentle vacuum pressure. You can trust Dr. Robbins to identify the liposuction techniques that will be most effective for your needs, and our staff will provide you with all the details you need prior to your procedure.
