Liposuction can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Through a small skin incision, a suction tube, or cannula, is inserted into various fat pockets. As the cannula is swept through the fat pocket, the fat is dislodged and literally vacuumed away.
Although liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise, it can remove stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to traditional weight-loss methods. Liposuction can be performed in conjunction with one or more body contouring procedures to improve overall body appearance and smooth irregular or distorted body shapes. Dr. Ackerman uses advanced liposuction techniques to obtain exceptionally precise results and quicker recovery times with minimal bruising.
