If you have tried diet and exercise and still have stubborn areas of fat, liposuction Walnut Creek, California may be the answer for you. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, performed by Dr. Christine Lee, which is used to enhance the contours of your body by removing fat cells. This procedure is permanent, as you do not make new fat cells after puberty. It is possible, however, to increase the size of the remaining fat cells. For this reason, we stress the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and exercise after your body contouring procedure. Liposuction should not be used to lose weight. While you will lose inches and see dramatic improvements in the shape of your body, the amount of fat cells removed must be controlled to avoid any adverse effects.
There are many areas of the body that can be improved with liposuction. They include:
- Chest and back
- Upper arms
- In some cases breast reduction
There are several different types of liposuction treatments. They include Tumescent liposuction, Ultrasound-assisted liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction. They all have different benefits, so your liposuction Walnut Creek, California will be designed for your specific condition. In some cases we will combine methods to achieve the best outcome. For instance, we may use Ultrasound-assisted liposuction to liquefy the fat cells and then use the Tumescent liposuction to remove the fat cells.
The possible risks are the same as those commonly associated with any surgery, but the most common side effect is bruising. The bruising will subside within two weeks following the surgery.
If you want to experience the immediate, dramatic and permanent results of liposuction call the office of Dr. Christine Lee in Walnut Creek, California to schedule a consultation. Liposuction can give your body the shape you always wanted.
