As you know from news reports, obesity is quickly becoming a problem of epidemic proportions in the United States…conditions like diabetes borne out of obesity are fast becoming the number 1 cause of preventable death in the country.
Embarking on a course to deal with obesity is very challenging but can be very rewarding as well – changing life-long eating and exercise habits take time but shedding unwanted pounds and keeping them off is an awesome feeling.
But massive weight loss also results in some loose skin that can become unsightly. Excess fat deposits from years of overeating and inactivity can just “hang around” even after you have taken admirable steps to correct things.
You may be asking yourself: “What can I do about excess fat deposits and restore my body’s natural contours and proportion?”
A liposuction procedure may be the answer – you may have heard about it but wondered what it involves.
Liposuction, or lipoplasty, reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits. Liposuction surgery restores your body’s natural shapes and contours, enhancing your self-image.
North Florida plastic surgeons at AccentMD perform liposuction surgery through small incisions which are first injected with sterile liquid solution to reduce bleeding and trauma. Next, liposuction surgeons insert a small hollow tube into these incisions and using a controlled back and forth motion, break the excess fat up. Once the fat is dislodged, a small vacuum or syringe sucks it through the hollow tube and out of the body.
Before undergoing any procedures, consult with Florida liposuction surgeons at AccentMD about your goals. We will walk you through the simple procedure so you’re fully aware of what’s going on. We have liposuction surgery options for both women and men.
