Fat deposits can stubbornly remain long after you have achieved your goal weight and size. When diet and exercise lose their effectiveness, patients turn to liposuction to remove unwanted fat deposits. Dr. Granzow uses targeted liposuction or mini-liposuction to contour your body by removing fat deposits for a more defined shape and balanced proportion.
Liposuction Our Practice
Everyone has problem areas where fat tends to settle. Over time these fat accumulations can be more difficult to get rid of and prevent you from attaining your ideal body. Liposuction is a treatment developed to remove excess fat on your:
- Upper Arms
To get the most benefit from liposuction, you should be close to your ideal weight and view the procedure as the final stage in your body improvement.
Our Approach to Liposuction
Dr. Granzow makes a small incision and inserts a thin tube, called a cannula, to suction fat deposits. The fat layer deep beneath the skin is broken up and vacuumed using the cannula. If you need volume added to another part of your body then Dr. Granzow will adapt this technique to preserve fat cells for fat grafting. Fat grafting is performed at the same time as liposuction and requires little to no additional recovery time.
Liposuction and Fat Grafting
Performed in two parts of the same procedure, fat removed during liposuction is used to restore volume or enhance your certain body contours such as the breasts and buttocks. A popular alternative to implants, fat grafting has a high success rate when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
