Unwanted fat on the body is often difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. No matter how many vegetables you eat and miles you run on the treadmill, certain areas can harbor unwanted fat cells that are stubborn and resistant to traditional treatment methods. This is when the team at Berardi Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery of Scottsdale, AZ might recommend consideration of liposuction procedures.
What is liposuction?
Dr. Joseph C. Berardi describes liposuction as a manual way to remove unwanted fat from the body. This is best done on areas that are not response to conventional methods of weight reduction including an improved diet and increased physical activity. Liposuction uses a special cannula wand that is inserted into the treatment area and used to suction out fat cells, providing permanent results.
Who is a candidate for liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are healthy adult men and women who have specific areas of fat on the body that are not responsive to diet and exercise. We also find that the individuals best suited for this treatment are those who are within their ideal body weight, as liposuction is not a weight loss solution.
What areas can be treated with liposuction?
Liposuction is best used on the following areas:
- Upper arms
What can I expect with the liposuction procedure?
The type of liposuction procedure will determine the patient’s experience. Our board certified plastic surgeon offers both tumescent liposuction and ultrasound liposuction. Both of these procedures are used to achieve results, but in different ways. Most patients can have these done with local anesthetics instead of general anesthesia, making the entire process comfortable for the patient based on their unique needs.
