Can Liposuction Reduce Belly Fat?

Can Liposuction Remove Belly Fat?

Liposuction is one of the most effective ways to remove fat that has proven resistant to diet and exercise – and nowhere is this fat more common than in the belly. With liposuction, stubborn fat deposits in and around the belly can be targeted and eliminated, helping to restore a toned and trimmed midsection while improving clothing options and producing a generally healthier look.

The advanced liposuction techniques utilized by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Doyle will encourage skin tightening, but liposuction is not intended to shrink the skin. If you have excess skin in addition to stubborn deposits of fat, it may be necessary to combine liposuction with abdominoplasty. During your initial consultation, Dr. Doyle will carefully evaluate your belly to help you determine if liposuction alone or in combination with another procedure will produce the best results.

Liposuction Treatment Areas

Liposuction can be used to remove stubborn belly fat. It can also be used to tone and define other areas of the body including:

  • Calves and thighs
  • Buttocks and hips
  • Low back and flanks
  • Midback and breasts
  • Arms
  • Neck and chin

In some instances, liposuction can be performed on multiple areas of the body during a single surgical session. It can also be used in combination with other body contouring procedures, such as arm lift or thigh lift, to help ensure optimal contours.

…But is it Safe?

Liposuction is a safe and effective method of body contouring for people who are good candidates. This means being in generally good health and prepared for a surgical procedure. It also means being able to take time off to rest following your procedure and being willing to closely follow all of the pre and postoperative instructions provided by Dr. Doyle. Taking time to follow instructions and allowing your body time to heal will help reduce the risk of complications while helping to ensure the most pleasing results.
