LiposuctionFat deposits around the stomach, thighs and other parts of the body can be stubborn and seem to stick around in spite of a good diet and exercise. After trying one fad diet after another and seeing little to no changes, it is easy to feel frustrated. If you are looking for an effective, long-term solution, liposuction may be what you are looking for.

It is important to note that liposuction is not a substitute for dieting or a healthy lifestyle but simply a tool for those who struggle with stubborn fat deposits in hard-to-reach areas.

Liposuction involves the suction-assisted removal of fat through a thin tube called a cannula. There are different techniques available, such as tumescent liposuction. Tumescent liposuction is a type of liposuction procedure that involves the usual suctioning of fat, but also involves injecting local anesthesia into the subcutaneous fat layer. This process is deemed to be safer, as it eliminates the use of additional sedatives. Consult with an experienced doctor like Dr. Michelle Place.
