Do you have an area of your body that is disproportionately thick or flabby? Perhaps you have inherited physical characteristics that you’ve always wished you could change. Have you found that a balanced diet and rigorous exercise isn’t enough to sculpt your figure? Consider liposuction to help you achieve the trim appearance you deserve, and the confidence that goes with it.
Liposuction, which is also known as liposculpture, is a procedure that can help recontour the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas. You may be interested in this procedure if you are discouraged by excess fat on your body that has not responded to dieting or exercise. Sometimes, stored fat deposits continue to remain no matter how many crunches, laps, miles, or other workouts you do; liposuction targets those difficult areas. However, it's important to know this procedure is not a substitute for living a healthy lifestyle and works best when paired with healthy eating habits and exercise. Common liposuction areas include:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Neck (double chin)
While traditional liposuction focuses on only one area at a time, Azalea Center also offers Lipo 360 which is the option to have multiple areas addressed at one time. Lipo 360 uses the same technique of traditional liposuction—using suction to remove fat cells from the body—but targets all areas of the midsection. Areas can include the upper and lower abdomen, obliques (love handle area), and your mid and lower back using 360-degree, circumferential liposuction. Dr. Bridgett Moore can go over traditional liposuction and Lipo 360 to help you determine which option is best during your one-on-one consultation.
