2 common questions about liposuction

If you have extra fat that needs to be removed (and it can't be done through diet and exercise) talk with plastic surgeon Dr. Taglienti of Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists. During the initial consultation, Dr. Taglienti will discuss everything about the procedure.

It's always smart to research operations such as liposuction before your first appointment. Not only do we believe the following information will answer some of your initial questions, we also consider them great launching points for further discussion with Dr. Taglienti.

Here are two common but important inquiries associated with liposuction:

" Liposuction can be performed all over the body."

1. Which areas on the body can be liposuctioned?
There are many different areas of the body that can undergo liposuction. Starting at the top of the body, the following areas can be liposuctioned easily to provide an improvement in contour: under the chin, breasts or male chest, upper arms, abdomen and flanks, inner and outer thighs, knees, and calves.

At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Taglienti uses Power-Assisted tumescent liposuction. With this procedure, an anesthetic is applied to the treatment area and then fluid containing lidocaine and epinephrine are injected into the body. This liquid is then removed using a number of small cannulas. The incisions are tiny, and closed with absorbable sutures. Typically a compressive garment is fitted on the patient and should be worn for a few weeks after the procedure to ensure optimal results.

If you're not sure which treatment is best for you, don't worry! Dr. Taglienti will outline the one he believes will provide you with the best results.

2. Is liposuction commonly used to remove excess fat?
Yes! In fact, liposuction may be a more popular procedure than you realize. According to a 2013 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report published by the ASPS, liposuction was a top-five cosmetic surgical procedure, with a total expenditure nationwide of over $572,000,000. Remember, you're not alone in your quest to improve your contour – there are many others who have similar goals!
