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 tumescent liposuction in Boston. This procedure helps 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 tumescent liposuction in Boston.

What type of liposuction do we provide?

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.
