Liposuction

Have you tried to tighten and tone a particular area of your body with little success? Some pockets of fat can be almost impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. A liposuction is an effective way to eliminate this fat for good while sculpting out a sleeker, leaner figure.

Located in Nashville, TN, RG Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Spa provides patients with cosmetic procedures that utilize the latest techniques available today. For more information about the services we offer or our practice in general, contact us today.

WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuctions are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. This procedure’s popularity may point to a telling truth about how difficult sculpting your ideal body through diet and exercise alone can be. Some people can stick faithfully to a diet and exercise plan for years without being able to achieve their aesthetic goals. A liposuction is an excellent way to remove excess fat deposits while decreasing the chance of future weight gain and improving the body’s overall proportions.

Anesthesia is administered before the procedure begins. Depending on the size of the area being treated, this can be either local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, unwanted and excess body fat is removed using a small, straw-like tube referred to as a “cannula.”

Following the procedure, the healing process is relatively quick. In fact, most patients can return to their normal daily activities within a few weeks of receiving surgery.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuction offers the patients that undergo it a wide variety of benefits. This procedure can be used to address excess fat on nearly any area of the body, including the:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Legs

Additionally, the results of a liposuction can last significantly longer than traditional weight loss results. During traditional weight loss, the size of fat cells increases and decreases, but the overall number of fat cells stays the same. Because of this, it’s easy to gain and regain fat fairly quickly. During a liposuction treatment, large scores of fat cells are removed entirely from an area, leaving patients with a lower chance of regaining fat in that area for life.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A LIPOSUCTION?

Anyone interested in removing excess fat from a specific area of their body is a potential candidate for liposuction. The best candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations about the amount of change a liposuction can bring to their body.

Anyone interested in undergoing this procedure must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this appointment, the doctor will discuss each patient’s treatment goals, state of health, and medical history in order to decide if it is right for them.
