Despite a proper diet and exercise, many men and women find that they have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away. Likely the result of genetics, these fat deposits are out of proportion with the rest of their body. It’s these excess pockets that can benefit from liposuction.
Liposuction can be performed on areas of your body where there are minimal amounts of excess skin. In Fort Wayne, Indiana, Liposuction is performed for many patients, and can be combined with other procedures. If your skin sags as well, Dr. Lee may recommend a body contouring procedure in addition to your liposuction.
Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat in the stomach, buttocks, hips, “love handles,” “saddlebags,” thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breast enlargement), back, arms and neck.
This procedure can slim and shape very targeted areas of your body, offering a balanced figure, a body that reflects your healthy lifestyle and a boost in self-esteem.
If you would like to address those areas of fat that resist diet and exercise, you’ll first meet with Dr. Lee for a consultation. After you arrive at our For Wayne location, he will take the time to get to know you and to understand what you hope to achieve with liposuction. Dr. Lee may ask you to point out in a mirror what areas you would like to target with liposuction.
Be prepared to share your medical history, including previous surgeries, medical conditions, drug allergies and current medications. Dr. Lee will conduct an exam to assess the elasticity of your skin, take measurements of your lower body and take photos for your records.
You and Dr. Lee also will discuss maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight. You may be required to lose weight before undergoing liposuction. This procedure cannot treat large areas of fat. It’s important to be near your ideal weight before undergoing liposuction surgery.
Share with Dr. Lee whether you plan to become pregnant in the near future as well.
