What is Liposuction?

Liposuction involves removing excess fat deposits through a suction technique. It can significantly improve body contours and proportions. It is particularly beneficial for patients with stubborn fat areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

What Is the Procedure?

  • Consultation: Dr. Antony begins with a thorough consultation to understand your cosmetic goals and evaluate the areas of your body that will benefit from custom contouring. This assessment ensures a personalized treatment plan aligning with your body type and wishes.
  • Anesthesia: Depending on the extent of the procedure and the areas treated, liposuction may be generally performed with local anesthesia and occasionally under general anesthesia.
  • Incision and Fat Removal: Small incisions are placed in the targeted areas, and a thin tube (cannula) is used to access and remove excess fat. The fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or a syringe in smaller areas.
  • Recovery: The recovery period varies by patient but typically involves wearing compression garments to help reduce swelling and reshape the body as it heals. Most patients can return to work within a few days and resume normal activities within a few weeks.

What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction in Raleigh & Cary, NC with Dr. Anu Antony offers several significant benefits for individuals looking to enhance their body contours and achieve a more defined physique:

Targeted Fat Reduction

Liposuction is specifically effective in removing fat from areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. This targeted approach allows for precise contouring and shaping of the body.

Improved Body Proportions

By removing excess fat deposits, liposuction can significantly improve the balance of your figure. This enhancement can lead to more flattering and versatile clothing options and a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.

Enhanced Confidence and Self-Esteem

The physical improvements made through liposuction often translate into a boost in self-confidence. Many patients feel more comfortable in their skin and more confident in their appearance after the procedure.

Minimal Scarring

Liposuction involves small incisions, often only a few millimeters long, which means that any scarring is minimal. Dr. Antony is skilled at strategically placing these incisions to ensure they are as inconspicuous as possible.
