There are many ways to shape up and improve your body. In addition to a healthy diet and exercise, certain plastic surgery procedures, such as liposuction, are often used at my Harrisburg, PA practice to remove stubborn fat. Three popular methods of body contouring I regularly perform include:
- Traditional liposuction: This trusted, proven technique has been used for many years to remove bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise. During the procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through small incisions. Fat is then suctioned out and removed permanently. Liposuction can be used on many areas of the body and is frequently requested for the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
- CoolSculpting®: People who struggle with a “muffin top” or “love handles” are often good candidates for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting can help you lose inches from your waistline without surgery or downtime. The sophisticated treatment uses advanced cooling technology to freeze unwanted fat cells, which then disappear as the body removes them through natural processes. The result is a sleeker, slimmer midsection.
- Laser Liposuction: Laser liposuction is a refined method of liposuction that uses thermal heat energy to liquefy fat, making it easier to remove. Because this technique is gentler, there’s less discomfort after surgery, and healing occurs more quickly. Laser liposuction also provides me with a great deal of control and precision, making it an excellent option for smaller areas of the body such as the chin or neck.
