Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from selected body areas using a suction technique. The procedure involves inserting cannulas under the skin through small incisions (less than ½ inch).
Liposuction is used to sculpture the body from head to toe:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Chest area
- Face, cheek, chin, and neck
- Calves and ankles
Ultrasonic liposuction is an advanced technique of liposuction for men and woman who have very thick, dues, and fibrous fat or for patients with somewhat loose skin. Ultrasonic liposuction helps the skin contract smoothly. For men with gynecomastia (excessive male breast tissue) and for selected woman with large or asymmetric breasts ultrasonic liposuction will help correct these deformities that traditional liposuction cannot.
Dr. Chobanian says: “Liposuction is a body contouring procedure designed to remove specific areas of unwanted fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction should give you a natural contour, a toned appearance. Your clothes will fit better!”
