Do you have stubborn fat that will not go away no matter how much you diet and exercise? Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified plastic surgeon that performs liposuction procedures for residents of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, otherwise known as lipoplasty or liposculpture, is a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from beneath the skin. Liposuction results in permanent, targeted fat loss and can greatly change the appearance of your body.
What is the Liposuction Procedure Like?
Depending on the patient’s needs, liposuction can either be performed in a hospital setting or at Dr. Rubinstein’s office. Many patients undergo the procedure while under local anesthesia and sedation, while others need general anesthesia. Regardless of the type of anesthesia used, the patient will not experience pain during the procedure. When performing the procedure, Dr. Rubinstein will insert a small tube through a tiny incision in the skin. This tube will be connected to a suction device, and the suction will permanently remove the fat from the targeted area.
Who is a Strong Candidate for Liposuction?
People with disproportionate fat distribution are the strongest candidates for this procedure. Even those who are otherwise in shape can suffer from stubborn pockets of fat. Liposuction can remove these fat pockets entirely. Liposuction typically works best for those who have good skin elasticity. Individuals with sagging or loose skin should ask about the possibility of other fat-targeting procedures or skin lifts.
What is Laser Assisted Liposuction?
Laser assisted liposuction utilizes lasers to liquefy fat before it is removed. This procedure can allow for better tightening of the skin after the procedure, and it may make the fat removal easier when targeting difficult to reach areas. Patients in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, have the opportunity to experience increased beauty and health by finally getting rid of those stubborn fatty areas.
