22 Jan Do I Need Liposuction or Another Body Contouring Procedure?
With so many body contouring procedures available on the market, how do you know which procedure to select to achieve the results you desire? Liposuction performed at John Park MD Plastic Surgery continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgeries elected and for good reason – it’s safe and effective, and it can produce amazing results. But is it right for you?
Lipo – Tried and True Body Contouring Method
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure with a long and successful past. It’s generally considered to be the gold standard for body contouring because of its reliability in removing fat cells. Lipo is a low-risk procedure performed by Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park that produces precise results. It uses a technique of injecting saline solution into the treatment area to help break up fat cells before they are permanently* removed from the body via suction and a cannula.
Since the development of liposuction, there’ve been several other fat removal procedures that have hit the market. However, they are not all created equal and depending, you may still be best suited for liposuction.
The first thing you need to take into consideration is just how much fat you need to have removed. Lipo is ideal for more significant amounts of fat removal whereas other methods may not be capable of eliminating* such amounts. Also, if you’re undergoing other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck or a body lift, liposuction may be your best option as you can just elect to have it performed alongside your other procedures. This eliminates the need for multiple surgeries, and it cuts down on costs and recovery time.
Consider SculpSure For Touchups
Not everyone looking to remove fat is in need of significant fat removal. This is when you may want to consider non-surgical SculpSure. If you simply have a little extra baggage around your waist or around your thighs, you may better be served with this non-surgical body contouring approach. SculpSure safely destroy fat cells via laser energy that heats the fat to melt it successfully. It is then naturally eliminated by the body via the lymphatic system.
Both fat removal modalities are proven to achieve sleek and contoured results. It comes down to what is best for you and your needs. If you’re looking to achieve a slimmer and more sculpted appearance and aren’t sure whether you should select lipo or SculpSure, contact John Park MD Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation. Dr. Park will take the necessary time to discuss all of your options and help you make the best decision for you. Contact us today by calling (949) 777-6883.
