Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure. It’s a fat reduction treatment that helps to remove pesky pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

There are different types of liposuction, including traditional and laser lipo. Traditional lipo uses a cannula to break up fat deposits that are then suctioned away. With laser lipo, the fat is liquefied prior to being removed. Both are less invasive than surgical fat reduction methods and come with a number of other advantages.

Below is more information about the key benefits of liposuction in Fort Lauderdale.

Less Invasive

Liposuction of any type is less invasive than surgery, as noted above. We offer traditional lipo, which is a great way to contour nearly every area of the body. The side effects typically include bruising and swelling, although full healing should take place a few months after your procedure.

Improved Health

Liposuction could come with health benefits associated with losing weight. This is particularly true for fat loss around the abdomen. It’s known that excess weight in the belly area comes with health risks including heart disease, insulin sensitivity, diabetes, inflammation, and certain cancers. Removing those excess fat cells could help to lessen these risks. Lipo, however, should not be considered your sole means of weight loss.

Sculpted Body Contours

No matter how much you diet and exercise, there are just some areas of fat that simply won’t go away. This can be incredibly frustrating after all your hard work and dedication. Liposuction is able to remove those pockets of fat, leaving you with a sleeker and sooth shape. Your body will look more contoured and toned after your procedure. Lipo can treat almost any area of the body that has stubborn fat deposits.

Improved Self-Esteem

One of the most exciting benefits of liposuction for many people in Fort Lauderdale is in the way they feel afterward. Your clothes will fit better on your newly toned body. No more bulges and no more tugging on things to make them fit. In addition, you won’t be subconscious of any lumps or fat pockets. You’ll move easier in your new skin, with less worry. It’s quite liberating.

Also, liposuction is FDA-approved and relatively safe for most individuals. Talk to our doctor in Fort Lauderdale about your medical history and desired results in order to make sure you’re a good candidate for lipo.
