Body Contouring with Liposuction

Often women and men come to my practice frustrated by stubborn fat that plagues their bodies despite spending countless hours in the gym and maintaining a healthy diet. For patients such as these, I often suggest liposuction in Marietta, GA. This simple yet effective procedure is a great complement to a healthy and active lifestyle, and understanding the basics of this treatment is a great way of deciding if it is right for you.

Liposuction procedures begin with a series of small and often inconspicuous incisions in the treatment area. After injecting the area with a tumescent solution, which provides anesthesia and reduces bleeding, the area is ready for fat removal. A thin tube, known as a cannula, is then inserted under the skin. The surgeon gently moves the cannula in a back and forth motion to break up fat.

The cannula then removes the loosened fat cells, permanently eliminating the cells from a person’s body. The surgeon will end the procedure by closing the incisions with fine sutures and applying a post-operative garment. Over the weeks that follow, swelling will subside and the results will become increasingly apparent.
