Liposuction has become one of Orlando’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, because when performed properly by a skilled surgeon, it is quick, safe, and yields amazing results.
With the tremendous growth in the demand for this procedure, it seems like doctors everywhere are offering liposuction. In Winter Park, it is not uncommon for dermatologists, gynecologists and general practitioners to offer liposuction procedures. Although liposuction may seem simple, it isn’t, and 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 involves just 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 it matters a great deal who performs the liposuction procedure.
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.
