LiposuctionAuthor: Dr. Gordon Sasaki
One strives to attain a proportioned body that is age-appropriate and achieved through wholesome eating habits and safe exercise programs. Despite these efforts, some individuals may still retain stubborn areas of localized fat deposits due to heredity and family traits. If you are concerned by the extra fat bulges on your face and /or body, liposuction may be one of the most effective ways to achieve a fit and well-proportioned look.
Liposuction remains one of the most accepted and popular aesthetic procedures in this country. Liposculpturing implies a three-dimensional removal of fat for a profiled look that blends in with your entire body shape. Dr. Sasaki believes an optimal result from liposuction depends on the amount of sculptured fat that remains rather than the quantity of fat removed. In most cases, the overlying skin conforms to the remaining fatty layer. In certain circumstances, however, skin folds develop as a result of loose skin that is unable to tighten after liposuction.

The doctor reduces irregularities that can occur with liposuction with a special basket-shaped cannula that breaks up collection of fat to smooth out the suctioned sites without removing the fat.
