Fat removal and liposuction

Everyone has problem areas when it comes to weight. Despite eating a proper diet and keeping a regular workout routine, it’s possible to have areas of fat that just won’t respond. If this applies to you, liposuction may be your solution.

During liposuction, Dignity Health Medical Foundation plastic surgeons will remove deposits of excess fat from specific areas of your body, face, or neck, helping to create a trimmer you. The ideal candidates for liposuction are men and women in relatively good shape, but who have stubborn areas of fat or skin that won’t respond to proper diet and exercise.

Why would someone get a liposuction procedure?

Although liposuction is not a treatment for losing large amounts of weight, it can permanently alter body proportion and is sometimes the only way to eliminate fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Liposuction is commonly used to:

  • Slim hips, thighs, and upper arms
  • Flatten the abdomen
  • Eliminate a double chin

During your liposuction, Dignity Health Medical Foundation plastic surgeons will surgically remove the fat and excess skin from your problem areas. When finished, you will be comforted in our recovery area, where your surgeon will discuss post-operative instructions with you.
