Liposuction remains one of the most popular body procedures in the United States today. Hundreds of thousands of people undergo liposuction every year. In 2020, more than 211,000 people elected the procedure, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. As we hopefully regain more aspects of normalcy as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves into 2022, there is every reason to believe that liposuction will once again be in the top five procedures for the year. But just why is this procedure so popular?
Here are a few of the benefits of modern liposuction:
- It successfully removes excess fat cells. Sometimes diet and exercise simply isn’t adequate to reduce stubborn deposits of fat. Fortunately, the suctioning power of liposuction can remove those fat cells that don’t respond no matter how many crunches you do!
- Liposuction can be used on many different areas of the body. Your face, abdomen, butt, thighs, calves, knees, chin, back, chest – there are just so many parts of the physique where fat can be removed with this technique.
- The results are long-lasting. The fat that’s removed is gone for good. It is of course still possible to gain new weight, so it’s important to maintain a stable body weight with healthy eating and exercise.
If you are already at or near your ideal body weight but you have areas of fat that simply won’t shrink no matter what you do, then you are probably a great candidate for liposuction. It doesn’t help you lose weight or drop pounds; instead, it sculpts areas of your body so that your body contours are better defined and areas of excess fat are smoother and flatter.
The only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for liposuction is to arrange a consultation with Dr. Charles Chalekson. During this visit, he will examine your areas of concern, but he also wants to take ample time to listen to you: to your goals, concerns, and expectations of what surgery will achieve. After he knows more about you and what you are interested in, he will be able to determine if liposuction is a good fit for your goals. There are many other body contouring procedures that could also be options, such as thigh lifts, tummy tucks, breast lifts, and others.
