Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery performed to reduce stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to die and exercise. Most of us have that one area of our body that we struggle with throughout our lives–it’s the first place we gain weight and the place we struggle the most to lose fat from. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the knees to the thighs, the buttocks to the back, the mid-section to the arms, and even the neck. The procedure is performed through a tiny incision through which a cannula (long, skinny tube) is inserted and the fat suctioned out.
Sometimes liposuction is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures. If you are interested in learning more about the liposuction procedure and recovery process, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Bourget today.
