Liposuction Benefits

It is often ideal for patients who are near or at their optimal weight but who have had difficulty eliminating isolated deposits of fatty tissues on various parts of their bodies.  At the San Francisco plastic surgery center of Dr. Kimberly Henry, liposuction is frequently performed on its own or in conjunction with other procedures such as tummy tuck as part of a more comprehensive treatment plan.

At our office in San Francisco, liposuction benefits are numerous while risks are few. This is especially true of procedures performed with the SmartLipo™ system, a revolutionary laser system that makes liposuction gentler, safer, and more precise than ever before. Whichever type of liposuction you are interested in, you can rest assured that you’ll be in great, experienced hands with Dr. Kimberly Henry.

Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat

Whether you have always been in good shape or you have worked hard to achieve a slimmed-down figure, you may have areas on your body that stubbornly resist diet and exercise. This can be very frustrating, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and still don’t look the way you want to. Fortunately, liposuction can eliminate these deposits of fat, effectively and permanently.

One of the chief benefits of liposuction is that it can be performed nearly anywhere on the body, including the neck, the thighs, the buttocks, the arms, the back, and the abdomen. Because the cannula, the device used to extract excess fat, is so precise, specific tissues can be targeted without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues. The result is smoother skin and a more refined figure.

Another key benefit of liposuction is that its effects are permanent. Once fat cells are removed, they will not regenerate. This means that patients must continue to eat healthy and exercise, as the fat cells in the untreated areas can grow larger, leading to a lumpy appearance. However, as long as you maintain a healthy weight, your figure will continue to be beautiful.

At our office in San Francisco, liposuction is performed using minimally invasive techniques. This means that scarring will be minimal and very discreet. This is especially true of laser liposuction performed with the SmartLipo™ system. Patients who undergo laser liposuction generally achieve optimal results with few to none of the tell-tale signs that they have undergone a surgical procedure.

The body contouring benefits of liposuction can be even greater when the procedure is combined with tummy tuck or various body lift procedures. While effective on its own, liposuction often provides an ideal finishing touch on a body that has been redefined through plastic surgery.
