Liposuction – Cosmetic surgery for losing fatDo you exercise regularly and eat consciously but still struggle to lose those few extra inches off your waist line, or thighs, or buttocks? Do you still dream of fitting into your favorite black cocktail dress? Do you wish you could get rid of the fat quickly? In that case, your wish might just be granted.

Liposuction – Cosmetic surgery for losing fat

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that can remove excess amount of fat deposits from certain areas of your body, giving you slimmer and more defined body proportions. The surgery helps in getting a toned body, which ultimately makes you look and feel more beautiful. Liposuction is also known as lipoplasty or fat modeling. While some people fail to get rid of fat deposited in certain areas of their body due to sedentary lifestyle, for others it is hereditary. This is where liposuction offers that extra help in toning and sculpting the body.

The main areas of the body where liposuction can be performed are:

  • Stomach and waist
  • Hips, thighs and butt
  • Neck, back, arms and chest, even breasts
  • Inner knees, calves and ankles
  • Chin and cheeks

Of course, liposuction cannot replace regular exercise and healthy eating  nor can it treat severe medical conditions like obesity. So who are the eligible candidates for liposuction?

Whom can liposuction help?

The candidate has to be over 18 years of age with good overall health. Certain diseases like diabetes, heart and circulation problems may limit the person’s eligibility to undergo this cosmetic surgery. Also, the person must have firm skin for it to be able to contract around the body’s new shape. Non-smokers are the preferred candidates for liposuction.

Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgeries so you may not find it difficult to come across a good surgeon for this treatment. The cost of liposuction depends on the surgeon’s experience, the body parts where liposuction is to be performed, and also post-surgery costs. In addition to that, the geographical area where you choose to get operated also influences the cost. In any case, make sure to choose a plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable.

Dr. Daniel Lin at your service

Well experienced  plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin has successfully performed  a number of liposuction surgeries. IF you live in or around the areas of West Covina, Inland Empire, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia and San Gabriel Valley, you can make the most of Dr. Lin’s experience.

Liposuction procedure typically lasts one to two hours and involves two simple steps – administering anesthesia, and inserting a thin tube (cannula) that loosens the fat in the area and sucks it out using a vacuum or syringe. The patient will then have to wear a compression garment for four weeks to reduce swelling and compress the skin into the new body shape. Within a week, the patient can resume his/her normal activities.

Liposuction undoubtedly results in a slimmer, firmer physique but your body needs routine exercise and healthy eating habits for the effects to stay longer.
