Have you ever scrolled through your Facebook News Feed or an article you’re reading to notice a flashy fat reduction ad? Of course you have. They are everywhere. Whether it’s all-natural diet pills or an exotic fruit, these ads always draw your attention—for a second, at least—especially if eliminating fat is something you desire.
Instead of giving in to medications or strange foods that supposedly burn up unwanted fat, opt for a treatment option that works. Liposuction and tummy tucks are effective plastic surgery procedures—helping eliminate fat deposits that have not responded to a healthy diet and exercise.
Liposuction: Achieve a Slimmer Figure
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can remove unwanted fat from almost any area of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs—and even the chin and neck! Since liposuction procedures require great care and expertise, no two surgeries are performed the same. The duration of your procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area and the amount of fat, also determining the type of anesthesia and technique used.
With liposuction being such a unique procedure, a consultation prior to surgery is required. Dr. Lazarus will meet with you to discuss the goals you have in mind, as well as the treatment plan. Please keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure—but a fat reduction treatment for patients who are in good health.
Tummy Tucks: Regain a Flat Abdomen
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tighten muscles. Tummy tucks are an ideal treatment option for patients who have had multiple pregnancies or a significant change in weight—as both life factors can wear out and loosen abdominal skin and muscles. Like liposuction, tummy tucks are completely unique and your procedure will depend on your condition and the goals you have in mind.
While tummy tucks are effective in addressing fat deposits and excess skin that diet and exercise can’t touch, the surgery itself does produce a scar. However, Dr. Lazarus uses special techniques to minimize its appearance and ensure the scar is on an area that can be easily hidden. Further details will be discussed at your initial consultation, where you can express your concerns and develop your treatment plan.
