Liposuction


Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure that removes excess fat from the body to produce a leaner body shape. Many people have areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. With liposuction, you can achieve a slimmer and better-proportioned figure. Liposuction can be applied to nearly any area of the body to effectively reduce unsightly fat deposits and produce a more beautiful body shape.

What Are Your Goals?


Stubborn Fat Removal


For many people, and especially as we age, certain areas of the body accumulate fat that stubbornly resists exercise and dieting. Especially in locations such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and upper arms, stubborn fat may persist despite your rigorous efforts to eliminate it. In many cases like this, the only solution is to undergo a fat removal procedure. Liposuction can remove fat from these areas to give you the contours you desire.

Permanent Results


Losing weight is difficult for many people, but keeping the weight off can be even more difficult. Once you’ve achieved a leaner body shape, your body may struggle to maintain it for more than a few months. Liposuction permanently reduces the amount of fat in the treated areas so that they will remain slimmer long term. With continued exercise and healthy eating, you will have an improved ability to hold onto your slender figure.

Targeted Body Contouring


One of the frustrations that many people have is how the body loses weight. Excess weight usually comes off as a little here and a little there, sometimes leaving areas where you would rather it remain and staying in places you’d prefer to trim down. We all have our specific problem areas that tend to store our extra pounds disproportionately. Even though weight loss can’t spot reduce, liposuction can target stubborn areas of fat and sculpt your body according to your desires.

A Younger-Looking Figure


One of the signs of aging is a slowing metabolism, which can manifest in noticeable fat accumulation. Areas of the body like the lower abdomen and upper arms may store excess fat, making you look older than you’d like to appear. Pregnancy and weight fluctuations can also lead to the buildup of fat in stubborn areas. Liposuction can counteract these effects of aging, pregnancy, and weight changes by trimming down these areas and restoring a youthful figure.

Greater Self-Confidence


Dealing with dissatisfaction over the appearance of your body can be discouraging. Being thwarted in your efforts to sculpt and contour your body may have a negative effect on your self-confidence and self-esteem. After liposuction has helped you achieve your aesthetic goals, the feeling of accomplishment can be quite rewarding. You may experience growth in personal confidence that helps you feel better about yourself.

Liposuction Options


Liposuction can be performed almost anywhere on the body, and you can undergo the procedure on multiple areas of the body in a single treatment session. During your consultation, Dr. Morales will help you choose from the following liposuction techniques by determining which one is most likely to meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions


Liposuction may be performed on the abdomen, waistline, hips, flanks, buttocks, thighs, knees, back, upper arms, and the neck or chin.
The technique that will be best for your liposuction procedure varies according to your needs. Factors that will influence this decision include your preferences, your age, the quality and density of your fat, the quality of your skin, your skin’s elasticity, and any stretch marks or other scars. Each technique has specific benefits and drawbacks that should be matched with your needs. Dr. Morales will discuss the best options with you in detail and help you determine which technique may best serve you.
Liposuction is an excellent tool to permanently eliminate fat from specific areas of concern, but it is not meant to replace a weight loss plan. The best candidates for liposuction are at or near their ideal weight but with stubborn fat deposits in targetable areas. Some patients who have difficulty controlling weight fluctuations find liposuction to be a motivational tool in helping them maintain a lower body weight. Liposuction can even be a motivator in helping patients lose more weight. Even though it is not a weight loss procedure, targeting problematic areas with liposuction can help you stay on your path toward maintaining a smaller and healthier figure.
All liposuction techniques rely on the skin to contract around the newer slimmer body contours. If your skin quality is poor, you may not achieve your desired results with liposuction alone. Depending on your needs, a tummy tuck, thigh lift, body lift, or other body contouring procedures may be recommended to remove your excess fat and tighten your skin with the best possible results. If liposuction is not right for you, these procedures can help you achieve a slimmer and shapelier silhouette.
If you are a suitable candidate for liposuction, you will typically achieve your desired results with just one treatment session. For the best results, openly discuss your goals with Dr. Morales during your consultation so that he will know how best to help you.
Liposuction permanently removes fat from the body, and results can be long lasting. However, subsequent weight gain may affect the results and alter the appearance of the treated areas. To maintain lasting results, adopt a healthy diet and daily exercise routine. This will help you avoid weight gain and keep you looking lean and trim for years to come.
