So often, both women and men exercise and eat a healthy, balanced diet, but still cannot remove pockets of fat. In such cases, liposuction can help. However, it is important to note that liposuction should not be viewed as a means of weight loss. I tell my Spokane and Coeur d’Alene patients that the treatment should be viewed as a way to help improve body contours after dieting and exercise. Liposuction can also:
- Improve overall appearance
- Decrease body fat
- Smooth body contours
- Treat several areas where unwanted fat exists
Additionally, liposuction can be combined with other procedures such as a tummy tuck for optimal body contouring results. The best way to find out how liposuction can help you is to consult with your surgeon and find out if you are a good candidate.
