LiposuctionFor a more sculpted body

Liposuction is one of the most popular and requested procedures in cosmetic surgery. Many people are looking for some way to improve the way they look. When diet and exercise alone does not work, liposuction may be an option. Simply speaking, liposuction permanently removes certain amounts of fatty tissue from isolated areas that cannot otherwise be changed, leaving the treated part of your body with a more rounded and contoured look. Often performed in conjunction with liposculputure, commonly treated areas are the hips, flanks, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, arms and neck.

The Differences between liposuction, liposculpture, and smartlipo

While Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure, liposculpture is a method of body contouring that is practiced in tandem with the procedure in order to achieve certain desired results. SmartLipo, the first and most advanced Laser-assisted Liposuction since 2006, uses a laser to melt the fat in certain areas. Southern Surgical Arts uses these kinds of cutting-edge technologies to remove excess fat in unwanted areas and contour certain areas of your body into a more desired shape and appearance. In fact, Southern Surgical Arts is the first practice in North Georgia and Chattanooga to offer SmartLipo.

What Do I Need To Consider?

The most important considerations are your surgeon, factors specific to your particular body, your goals, and an awareness of the common misconceptions surrounding Liposuction in the culture. Factors more specific to your body and lifestyle are: your general physical condition, skin elasticity, genetic makeup, diet and exercise habits, and smoking and alcohol consumption, if any. Although many cosmetic surgeons do know how to perform Liposuction, the length of experience and rate of success of the particular surgeon you choose is especially important.
