The unfortunate truth is that body fat is problematic for many men and women. While some are able to decrease their body fat through dietary adjustments and dedication to exercise, others find their efforts to yield minimal results at best. If your best efforts at dieting and exercise have gone unrewarded, you may consider working with a cosmetic and dermatologic specialist who performs liposuction procedures like our team of professionals at OC Skin Institute.
What is liposuction? a procedure that removes fat from throughout your body
Liposuction is a medical procedure, performed by a certified medical and cosmetic dermatologist that can safely remove excess body fat from your frame.

Liposuction Techniques and Types
Liposuction can be performed primarily in three manners. The most popular type of procedure is Tumescent liposuction using a cannula for the removal of fatty cells. This is the most common technique implemented. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction with Smarlipo are also other techniques used. During Smartlipo for example, a small tube is inserted via a small incision into the targetted area of fat. The laser targets the fat cells using heat energy and melts them for easier removal with the suction. This also alllows for better shaping with coagulation.
What you can expect from liposuction performed at the OC Skin Institute
With liposuction, the fat can be removed through a single procedure. You may lose weight as body fat is pulled from the body, and your physique can be contoured to give you beautiful results.
However, this cosmetic surgery is not a replacement for regular exercise and good eating habits. Those who do not take steps to keep body fat off after a liposuction procedure has been performed might notice an increase in their body fat as the year progresses. Therefore, it is recommended that those who have this procedure take additional steps to lead a healthy lifestyle.
