Kirkland Liposuction – Body Contouring Procedures
One of the most popular forms of plastic surgery, liposuction is great for patients who need a small amount of fat extracted from their body for a thinner, sleeker look. This is typically done by using liposuction in conjunction with contouring. Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss – while it does remove fat cells, fat cells in other areas can increase in size if a patient does not turn bad habits into healthy ones following the procedure. Liposuction is a terrific jump start to a weight loss program, but is not a replacement for proper diet and exercise. Areas of the body such as the abdomen and sides (as in love handles) can have excess fat, so we offer liposuction body contouring in Kirkland so that our patients can always look and feel their best.
There are two types of methods when it comes to liposuction. Many people still opt for surgical liposuction. Dr. Zemplenyi will make small incisions in the skin, and remove the fatty deposits underneath by using suction. A surgical procedure, this type of liposuction does require some recovery time and some type of anesthesia. Here at the Bel-Red offices, we offer both twilight sedation and full anesthesia. A patient may also opt for laser lipo. Also known as Smart Lipo, this type of liposuction is performed with the use of laser energy, and no surgery or anesthesia is required. Fine contouring is often better performed with the use of lasers. During your first consultation, doctor and patient can best decide which is the right course of action.
