Volume Control: Thinner Isn’t Always Better

When most people think of liposuction, they envision obtaining a slimmer, smoother figure. While this approach is generally true of most liposuction procedures, liposuction can also be about enhancing curves by keeping volume in the right places.

The most common use for liposuction in Champaign, IL is body contouring, such as the abdomen, flanks, and love handles. When performing lipo for Bloomington, IL patients, I carefully consider each patient’s individual anatomy and the results each patient desires.

Every man and woman’s figure is unique, which means there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to liposuction. For example, to enhance one woman’s curves, I may need to sculpt the stomach or the flanks to slim the waist, while another woman may prefer that I create the illusion of having more volume added to the buttocks with the use of liposculpture.

Keeping Volume in Other Areas

In the face, preserving fullness can be ideal. We associate fullness with youth, especially in the cheeks and lips. However, as we age, volume in the face diminishes as our natural collagen breaks down. One possible way to correct this concern is with injectable fillers.

Typically, women want more volume in the cheeks to create fuller-looking cheekbones, which we associate with health and youth. Fillers make achieving this effect simple, with no downtime or incisions. When it comes to volume, it’s important to have a balance. Volume in the right places can help you look younger.
