Liposuction Candidate

Getting the toned physique many of us desire can be difficult when stubborn areas of fat won’t seem to budge. While diet and exercise are important parts of achieving a sculpted figure, some people are more susceptible to carrying extra fat in certain areas, which can be nearly impossible to get rid of with healthy habits. If you have these “trouble spots” and can’t seem to lose that last bit of weight, you may be a good candidate for liposuction.

At Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Neil Zemmel performs liposuction as a solution for concentrated areas of excess fat. Although the surgery is not intended as a weight loss method, it can provide beautiful contouring results for those who want to put the finishing touches on an already healthy body. There is a wide variety of areas that can be treated with liposuction, and the most common include the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, chest, chin, and neck.

To learn if liposuction is the most appropriate solution for your needs, you will need to schedule a consultation to be properly evaluated. However, those who are typically eligible for the procedure are in generally good health, have localized areas of excess fat, have good skin elasticity, and are in fairly good shape.
