Liposuction hobart | robert frank mdWhen it comes to deciding on whether or not to get plastic surgery, many Hobart residents are concerned with the bottom line. Will this procedure help me look and feel better? Will this procedure give me the beautiful results I desire? They want to know if getting the elective procedure will help them improve their silhouette. Read on to learn more about liposuction, how it can help you achieve the silhouette you desire, how you can even use the fat removed from liposuction to add volume to flatter areas of your body, such as your buttocks, and whether or not you are an ideal candidate for liposuction.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an elective plastic surgery procedure. It permanently removes stubborn fat cells, typically those that do not go away despite proper diet and exercise. With liposuction, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frank of Robert Frank Plastic Surgery makes small incisions in the treatment areas. He then injects a fluid into the areas which makes it easier to suction out the fat. From there, a small tube called a cannula is used to suction out unwanted fat cells, and permanently remove them from your body.

How Can Liposuction Improve My Silhouette?

Many Hobart patients want to know if liposuction can help improve their silhouette. And the answer is yes! Liposuction of the abdomen, love handles, and thighs can permanently remove fat cells from your treatment area, leaving you with a more contoured physique and slimmer silhouette. Liposuction is especially effective at treating stubborn fat deposits that won’t go away no matter how well you eat or how often you hit the gym. About 70% of that swelling will go down in the first month if you follow Dr. Frank’s orders, but it can take up to a year for the rest of the swelling to subside and for you to see your final results.
In addition to improving your silhouette by removing unwanted fat cells, liposuction can be used to harvest fat cells that can be injected into other areas of your body that lack volume. One of the most popular procedures of this kind is called a fat transfer to buttocks, or a Brazilian butt lift, in which liposuction is performed in your problem areas, the fat is treated and then injected into your buttocks to give you a rounder, more voluptuous rear end.
