This young woman came to my cosmetic surgery office because she wanted to improve the appearance of her torso. I used liposuction to treat her abdomen and flank area which enhanced her entire midsection with minimal risk and downtime; in fact her procedure was just a few weeks before her wedding. Liposuction is an excellent tool I use to help Boston patients get rid of areas of stubborn fat. The fat cells removed with liposuction never come back and, as long as one maintains a healthy lifestyle and stable weight, the results will be permanent.
Liposuction is generally an outpatient procedure with minimal recovery time; patients wear a thin and inconspicuous compression garment for three weeks to minimize swelling. Liposuction in an excellent tool to improve body shape and contour; liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss. Liposuction helped this patient look better in her wedding gown!
