Redmond Liposuction – Body Contouring Procedures
When people think of liposuction, they may think of large amounts of fat being removed from the body so that a patient suddenly is thinner. This is not exactly the case, and liposuction is often mistaken for other fat-reducing surgeries and procedures. What liposuction is best for is contouring. When a patient has an area that they would like to minimize, such as love handles, liposuction is used to contour the area. Fatty deposits are removed, but unfortunately, if a patient is not ready to start changing bad habits into healthy ones, fat may return. The best candidates for liposuction have already begun their journey to being healthier, usually with a change in diet and exercise regimen. A diet of leafy greens, fruits, whole grains, and lean meats is recommended, in conjunction with exercising more. Contouring is an excellent way for a patient to jump start their weight loss. As a result, here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer liposuction body contouring in Redmond so that our patients can look or feel their best.
In modern times, there are two types of liposuction procedures: surgical and non-surgical. Surgical liposuction is performed by Dr. Zemplenyi making small incisions in the area of the body that have fatty deposits, and removing the fat from the area. He then contours the area so it looks sleek and trim. This type of procedure does require either twilight sedation or full anesthesia, both of which are available in the Bel-Red offices. Smart Lipo, or laser liposuction, is performed with the use of laser energy and is not a surgical procedure. For those patients wary of surgery, Smart Lipo is a great choice. A consultation with the doctor can help patients decide what is best.
