How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a popular fat-reduction surgery in St. Petersburg that uses the aid of a vacuum to remove your unwanted fat cells. Dr. Lo uses his training at top-notch hospitals under world-renowned plastic surgery experts to reform your body with liposuction and create results that look natural. At Allure Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery, he performs all procedures himself. Right before your liposuction procedure, An anesthesiologist puts you under general anesthesia so you are unconscious and unresponsive to pain. In this manner, he is able to remove more fat with less discomfort to you. He makes a small incision in the area that you specified during your consultation and inserts a hollow tube called a cannula through it. Using a back and forth motion with the cannula, he loosens your fat cells and dislodges them from surrounding tissue. Dr. Lo attaches a suctioning device to the cannula that pulls your fat cells through the tube and out of your body. Once the procedure is over and you awaken, you’ll spend some time in the recovery room until Dr. Lo gives you the go-ahead to go home and recover.

Which Areas Can I Reduce with Liposuction?

Liposuction in St. Petersburg is designed to work on nearly any area of the body that gathers more fat than others. Your fat distribution is unique to your body, so the areas that you choose to target with liposuction may be entirely different from someone else who gets the surgery. You can remove fat from these areas:

  • Chin and neck
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees

Dr. Lo carefully sculpts your body into a more proportionate silhouette. You can get liposuction on just one disproportionately problematic area or several for a comprehensive improvement to your physique.
