Is Liposuction Effective?

Liposuction is widely considered the most effective means of fat reduction from targeted areas of your body. It allows you to suction away unwanted fat pockets from the tummy, thighs, love handles, or other parts of the body. Dr. Boustany takes fat reduction to the next level with advanced liposuction techniques, such as high-definition liposuction, ab etching, and vaser liposuction in Boston. These procedures help you achieve a slim, contoured figure with muscle definition and minimal downtime.

Am I a suitable candidate for liposuction?

You’re the ideal candidate for liposuction if you have unwanted pockets of fat in targeted areas that you can’t remove through healthy eating and exercise. That’s because traditional weight loss methods, such as dieting and exercise, don’t target specific pockets of fat. If you want to reduce the fatty areas on your body to achieve a fit and sculpted figure, you should definitely consider liposuction.

However, to qualify for liposuction, you must be in generally good mental and physical health and have realistic expectations. You should also be a non-smoker or be willing to quit smoking a few weeks before the procedure. Furthermore, liposuction shouldn’t be mistaken for a weight loss procedure. This treatment removes unwanted fat tissues from specific parts of your body, but it’s not an alternative for a healthy lifestyle or weight loss procedures.

Dr. Boustany will carefully listen to your concerns, discuss your expectations, examine the targeted areas of your body, and review your medical history to determine if you’re the ideal candidate for liposuction in Boston.

What are the types of liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser liposuction is a technique wherein ultrasound energy is used to loosen and destroy fat cells to facilitate their smooth extraction from the body. This technique increases the precision, allowing Dr. Boustany to remove highly targeted pockets of unwanted fat from the arms, knees, back, love handles, and other areas.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a procedure wherein a specialized tumescent solution (local anesthetic and epinephrine) is injected into the treatment area before suctioning away the fat cells. The local anesthesia ensures optimal comfort, and the epinephrine shrinks blood vessels to reduce blood loss, which ensures safer and speedier recovery.

High-Definition Liposuction

Fat cells often cover the muscles in your body, preventing you from appreciating the results of your workouts. High-definition liposuction is a highly specialized and artistic procedure wherein small volumes of excess fat are removed from the regions around the chest, abs, and other muscle groups. This makes your muscles pop, allowing you to appreciate the results of your hard work.

Ab Etching

Ab etching is a specialized form of high-definition liposuction. As the name suggests, this liposuction technique primarily targets the tummy and waistline. It involves removing small volumes of fat from the tummy and flanks to highlight your abdominal muscles. This technique reveals the six-pack underneath the layers of subcutaneous fat.
