Liposuction for the Removal of Stubborn Fat

Liposuction for the removal of stubborn fatStubborn fat is real and it’s a serious problem. Believe it or not, this is an issue even people who work out religiously experience.  Whether they’re a fitness expert or live a sedentary lifestyle, almost everyone around you has had an issue with stubborn fat, guaranteed. Most commonly, the afflicted areas include the abdomen (particularly the lower belly), the love handles, under the upper arms, underneath the chin, and the upper back. So, how do you deal with it? For Dr. Salama, the answer is easy…Liposuction.

Liposuction removes excess fat deposits and fatty tissue through suction. Using a cannula, Dr. Salama goes underneath the skin to suction out that stubborn fat. The cannula allows him to be precise and thorough, and is flexible enough for the procedure to be performed on many areas of the body including the aforementioned commonly afflicted areas, the hips, thighs, knees, calves and more.

At Elite Plastic Surgery, 360 Lipo is a very popular procedure because multiple troubled areas are targeted. It includes Lipo of the upper and lower abdomen, the upper and lower black, and the flanks; thereby, slimming, reshaping and contouring the torso, enhancing the body’s natural figure.

As with every procedure, during the initial consult, Dr. Salama evaluates patients to ensure they’re a good candidate for Liposuction. He checks the afflicted areas making sure there is no excess skin in addition to excess fat because you can liposuction stubborn fat, but you can’t correct saggy, hanging skin with liposuction. That would require another procedure involving the excision of excess skin, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, bra-line lift, etc., depending on problem the area.

Now, while Liposuction may sound like a panacea for stubborn fat, it’s important to understand it’s not a substitute for diet and/or exercise nor does it treat obesity.
