Liposuction is a method of removing localized deposits of fat to recontour one or more areas of the body. The ideal candidate is of normal weight, with firm, elastic skin who has localized pockets of excess fat. Most patients, of course, are not “ideal” candidates, but as long as you are physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you can expect marked improvement in your physique.
Liposuction can effectively remove fatty deposits from:
- Knees, legs and calves
- Chin and neck
Liposuction does not replace dietary control and is not used for weight loss, but rather for “sculpting” you to your best, most ideal shape, at whatever stable weight you are. Swelling and bruising are to be expected. Men often wear post op garments for three weeks or so. Minimal downtime is to be expected, although four to ten days is recommended for recuperation.
