One of the most popular and most versatile procedures in the cosmetics industry is liposuction. Liposuction is made for fat removal and helps with skin tightening. It also can enhance the results of other cosmetic procedures by doing combining the two. Liposuction is often done in combination with tummy tucks, facelifts, arms lifts, breast reduction, and body contouring procedures.
A tummy tuck is a surgery that works to remove excess loose skin on the abdomen, tighten up muscles, and can remove some fat. Most people that get a tummy tuck have either undergone pregnancy or massive weight loss and have skin that is impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise. Many surgeons use liposuction in combination with a tummy tuck to get rid of excess fat and to help tighten up the skin on the abdominal area. This allows for a slimmer, more contoured profile.
Many surgeons choose to combine liposuction of the neck and lower face area when there is excess fat present around the jawline and the jowl area. Liposuction of other body parts can also be formed at the same time as this facial surgery.
Many people who have either lost a lot of weight or having aging skin will notice that there are residual fat pockets on areas like the arms. These can create an unflattering look. To remove the fat, arm lifts are done to create a slim appearance. Liposuction is used during the procedure to get rid of fat and tighten the skin. Liposuction can also be performed on other areas of the body such as the back, thighs, or abdomen during an arm lift.
Breast reduction surgery professionally referred to as reduction mammaplasty, are performed on patients with large breasts that cause them physical pain in the neck, back, and shoulder. Liposuction is often done during a breast reduction to avoid scarring and to help remove the excess fatty tissue.
Most body contouring procedures are done with liposuction such as thigh lifts, breast augmentation, breast lifts, and lower body lifts. By combining liposuction with another procedure, you can a considerable amount on cost for both anesthesia and the surgical facilities.
