Woman Magazine asks our local professionals….
Why is it you just cannot lose those bothersome inches from your hips, thighs and buttocks? Genetics confounds your every attempt, leaving you frustrated and angry. We are not talking about ten, twenty or more pounds equally distributed, which can be managed by a good exercise program and eating style. Enter liposuction, stage right!
Liposuction is a technique that sculpts away fat cells using a thin tube, called a canula, attached to a vacuum device. Under a good surgeon’s hand, it reshapes bulges to gentle curves. Fat cells are whisked away by suction, never to return. Remaining fat cells can get bigger or smaller, like a balloon inflating or deflating, but there are fewer cells to blow up.
So imagine a process that allows you to fit into smaller jeans or wear the same sizes of a two piece bathing suit by altering your contours. It is not a weight reduction method and the final results do take a bit of patience, but the end result is well worth its weight in….!
