Your body is designed to store fat for reserved energy. While you can diet and exercise to maintain a lower bodyfat percentage and healthy weight, you cannot control where your body stores or burns fat. If you have fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, the only way to remove these deposits may be plastic surgery. At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, we offer liposuction surgery for body sculpting to achieve the contours you desire.
The most common areas for fat storage include the abdomen, thighs, flanks, buttocks and hips. Whether you have stubborn love handles on your sides or saddlebags on your thighs, it can be frustrating. Most people can lose fat and weight, but still have areas that refuse to shrink proportionately.
Liposuction uses medical techniques to access and remove fat cells from targeted areas. There are different methods used to loosen and liquify fat deposits before the fat is suctioned out through a cannula. At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, we offer traditional, power-assisted and radiofrequency-assisted liposuction to remove fat pockets from all over the body.
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction is an ideal procedure for those struggling with fat pockets that refuse to burn away with calorie restriction or exercise. Patients who can benefit from liposuction surgery have good skin elasticity and maintain a healthy weight. Liposuction can remove fat, but it does not remove loose skin. Those who have excess skin may require a tightening procedure in addition to liposuction to create the body sculpting results they desire.
Liposuction surgery does require small incisions to access the fat under the skin, but these are small and inconspicuous. Lipo procedures can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including the neck, arms, torso, buttocks, thighs and hips. Liposuction surgery can be performed with local or general anesthesia, depending on the size and area targeted.
Liposuction surgery can permanently remove fat cells from specific areas to contour the body.
