Dr. David Bogue is a Boca Raton plastic surgeon who is well-known for his personal interest in every one of his patients. Knowing that people who live in our part of the country tend to live very active lives and want to feel great as they do, Dr. Bogue develops personalized treatment plans to help patients achieve their goals. One of the most common is to eliminate stubborn fat. As patients explore how liposuction might help them love their shape more, they often want to know if this procedure can address a specific area of the body.
Liposuction is a minimally-invasive treatment that can be performed on a wide variety of areas, including:
- Abdomen and flanks
- Hips and buttocks
- Chin and neck
- Thighs and upper knees
- Calves and ankles
There is no way of predicting where stubborn fat will want to accumulate. Fortunately, liposuction is a streamlined procedure that can be performed on larger areas like the thighs or abdomen as well as smaller areas like the submental region, where a double chin may occur.
Can Liposuction be Performed on More Than One Area at the Same Time?
Fat, being as unpredictable as it is, may accumulate on a few different areas. These aren’t always adjacent, either. After a thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Bogue can determine the benefits of addressing multiple areas in one surgery. Within reason, liposuction can sculpt a few different areas to enhance the overall curvature of the body. Patients must keep in mind that liposuction is not a tool for weight loss. Very little weight is lost as a result of this procedure, if any at all. The purpose of liposuction is to target localized pockets of fat and create smooth transitions from one part of the body to the next.
Benefits of Liposuction Surgery
In addition to being highly versatile in treating various areas of the body, liposuction offers other significant benefits. Though Dr. Bogue performs liposuction using general anesthesia for complete comfort, patients can go home within a few hours of their procedure. Liposuction typically requires minimal downtime. Depending on the extent of surgery, patients may return to work within just a few days. Usually, even larger areas require no more than a week of recovery. After having liposuction, patients can enjoy enduring results provided that they maintain the level of activity that is right for them based on their natural metabolism and diet.
There is no benefit in continually fighting off unwanted fat. Liposuction can produce satisfying results within a few weeks with minimal side effects. To learn more about this body contouring procedure, contact us at 561-886-1000 for a consultation.
