Can Liposuction Give You the Ultimate Silhouette?
Liposuction (also known as lipoplasty and body contouring surgery) sculpts your body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures. While it doesn't remove cellulite or loose skin, it can change your shape dramatically.
In this video, ASAPS member and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Farber explains how liposuction has evolved over the years and how it can help create the ultimate silhouette.
Liposuction can treat back rolls if they are a result of extra fat and the skin is tight. However, once the fat is removed, the roll may deflate showing an excess of loose skin. If the rolls are larger and/or there is an excess of loose skin, then you may require skin excision which results in a scar.
This video was filmed during The Aesthetic Meeting 2018 - the largest meeting of board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeons learning about the latest advancements for facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, breast revision, breast reduction and liposuction, among other topics.
