Improve Your Body Contour with Liposuction

It is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require a lot of recovery time, making it a great choice for men and women who don’t want to take a lot of time off work.
It may take up to 3 months to see final results after a liposuction procedure, so the winter season is the perfect time to have it done. Winter coats conceal any swelling you may have, and you’ll be ready to show off your new body by the time the weather warms up.

If you are interested in liposuction, call Tulsa plastic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina today at 918-392-7900 to schedule your consultation.

What Can Liposuction Treat?

Liposuction is not a weight loss tool, and is not meant for removing large amounts of fat at once. It is best for treating smaller areas of excess fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. Genetics and age determine where our fat settles, and despite living a reasonably healthy lifestyle many people struggle with achieving their ideal body shape. Liposuction is ideal for treating small areas of stubborn fat in the:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Chin
  • Flanks
  • Bra bulge

Liposuction will not significantly address loose, sagging skin. If you have loose skin from weight loss or age, talk to Dr. Cuzalina to see about combining liposuction with a body lift or non-surgical skin tightening procedure for best results.

Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction:

  • Is under a BMI of 30
  • Is at or near a healthy weight they can maintain
  • Has localized fat deposits they want to reduce or eliminate
  • Leads a relatively healthy lifestyle
  • Has good skin tone and elasticity
  • Has realistic expectations

If you are obese, you may not be a good candidate for liposuction until you can lose some weight. We will be happy to give you some tips for leading a healthy lifestyle or point you in the direction of a nutritionist or personal trainer to help you out.

Always remember that plastic surgery is not a magic bullet that will allow you to maintain a shapely and trim body without putting in any work. It is possible to regain fat after having liposuction, so it’s important to maintain a fairly nutritious diet and regular exercise regimen. Liposuction can help you get the body of your dreams, but it’s up to you to maintain it!
