How Lipo Can Help
Liposuction is one of the safest and most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. For both men and women, lipo can help reveal a slimmer body shape by removing isolated areas of fat that are disproportionate with the rest of the body.
If you are an otherwise fit individual looking for help shaping specific trouble areas, then liposuction may be the procedure for you. Lipo can be performed on almost any area of the body to fine-tune notorious areas that are diet- and exercise-resistant, like the love handles or a double chin. Although not a form of weight loss, lipo can serve as a complement to a healthy lifestyle that further enhances your appearance.
Liposuction can be a powerful tool for combating subcutaneous fat deposits in spots that do not respond well to diet and exercise. However, lipo can’t improve the appearance of loose skin, and won’t help repair or tighten separated abdominal muscles. If these are concerns for you, a tummy tuck may be the better choice, but often Dr. Meade combines them with liposculpture.

If your diet and workout routine haven’t quite been enough to help you meet your cosmetic goals, then liposuction may be able to help make up the difference. Performed alone or in concert with other cosmetic procedures, lipo in the right candidates can deliver beautiful body contouring results.
