Liposuction has become one of the country’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. When performed properly by a skilled surgeon, it is quick, safe, and works. With the tremendous growth in the demand for this procedure, it seems like doctors everywhere are offering liposuction.
In Orlando, it is common to see dermatologists, gynecologists and general practitioners offering liposuction procedures. Although liposuction may seem simple, it isn’t. You should trust only a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this procedure.
Liposuction involves so much more than fat removal. My Winter Park patients come to me for body sculpting, not just fat removal. What’s the difference?
- Fat Removal is just about extracting fat from the body. On its own, it does not require an artistic eye or a technique that minimizes bruising, swelling, or scarring.
- Body Contouring requires a combination of knowledge, technical skill and artistic vision to sculpt targeted areas of the body. These come only through extensive education, training and experience dedicated to liposuction–not a weekend course.
Other considerations involved with liposuction include evaluation of skin tone, the patient’s weight, advanced sculpting techniques, treating smaller or more difficult areas, and above all else, patient safety. All of these factors are additional reasons why the skills and qualifications of the professional performing the liposuction matter so much.
There are also numerous types of liposuction available, and it is important that your doctor understands the best type of liposuction for your particular needs. I cannot emphasize enough that the combination of a skilled, knowledgeable surgeon with the right contouring technique for your cosmetic goals is essential for a pleasing outcome.
