A lean, fit appearance can be achieved with a consistent diet and exercise routine; however, certain areas of the body are difficult to tone. Even after hours spent in the gym and counting every calorie consumed, these “trouble areas” will not respond. These areas often include the abdomen, thighs, glutes, back, and arms. While there seems to be a vast number of body contouring treatments available, there is perhaps no treatment as effective as liposuction.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Armijo performs liposuction in the Dallas area to provide his patients with the ability to reach their aesthetic goals. Here is why liposuction is still one of the best fat removal methods.
What Set Liposuction Apart?
Liposuction involves the use of gentle suction to remove unwanted fat tissue in specific areas of the body. During a typical liposuction treatment with Dr. Armijo, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted into a patient’s fatty tissue through a small incision. These incisions are generally very small and typically won’t leave a scar. To make this procedure as noninvasive as possible, Dr. Armijo employs two state-of-the-art liposuction techniques: tumescent liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction.
Tumescent liposuction is an advanced approach to traditional liposuction. It increases safety, precision, comfort and promotes faster healing.
Laser-assisted liposuction combines non-surgical laser fat removal technology with traditional liposuction techniques for faster results and minimal healing time. Laser-assisted liposuction uses cannula to remove the unwanted fat, while a thin fiber emits laser energy directly into the fat deposits, liquefying them for easy removal.
The Many Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction offers several advantages that make it the best approach to body contouring for patients that are struggling with diet and exercise resistant fat.
- can be used virtually anywhere on the body due to the versatile sizes and shapes of the cannulas. Liposuction can even be used in the armpits, ankles, knees, and underneath the chin.
- produces results after just one treatment. Most body contouring treatments require multiple session with results that manifest gradually. With liposuction, patients require only one appointment and can see results as soon as swelling subsides.
- makes visible muscle definition possible. When the subcutaneous fat is removed, muscle definition in the abdominal, biceps, and thighs are more pronounced to better show off your hard work in the gym.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is not meant to be used as a dramatic weigh loss tool but rather a partner in your weight loss journey. An ideal liposuction candidate is someone who is healthy with a BMI under 30. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for liposuction is to speak to Dr. Armijo about your concerns and body goals. He will help you determine the best and safest course of action.
