Liposuction of the Body

Liposuction is the most common method used to remove stubborn fat and resculpt the figure. The procedure involves the use of a slender surgical tube called a cannula to suction fat from localized areas of the bod, thereby creating smoother, leaner body contours. Liposuction can be performed safely on many areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, calves, ankles, upper and lower back, and upper arms.

The Liposuction Procedure

Dr. Sessa begins the procedure by making detailed guide markings on the skin of the area to be sculpted. After a sterile wash, the area is prepared with injections of a sterile saline solution containing an anesthetic. Afterwards, he will make a few, small incisions through which he inserts the cannula, and with a back and forth movement of the instrument, breaks up and removes the appropriate amount of fat, being careful to create smooth, even contours. Dr. Sessa uses the most advanced methods of liposuction to achieve superior results with the least amount of post-operative bruising, swelling and discomfort possible.

Results of Liposuction

The body trimming results of liposuction reveal more slender, balanced proportions, which enhance the overall appearance of the body. By eliminating bulges of stubborn fat and refining the contours of the body through liposuction, patients can have the sleek, slender body that may have been impossible to achieve through dieting and exercise alone. By adhering to a healthy lifestyle of regular exercise and a balanced diet after liposuction, the results of the procedure can be preserved long into the future.
