Where we store excess body fat is largely genetic. This means that if your mother or father had a little belly poking out, it is quite likely you will too. This is true even if your Body Mass Index (BMI) is within the normal, healthy range and you are committed to a diet and exercise program. Stubborn belly fat can ruin an otherwise lean and athletic silhouette and frustrate you in the gym and in your personal life. If you live in Baton Rouge and you are considering taking permanent steps to get rid of the belly fat once and for all, liposuction may be right for you.
What Liposuction Can Do
Liposuction is a popular procedure designed to spot-remove stubborn fat deposits. It is not appropriate for you if you are majorly overweight or need to lose a large amount of body fat. It cannot get rid of pounds and pounds of excess weight. Liposuction is best for people who are already quite athletic and lean, but are having trouble trimming off problem areas like belly fat. It can be used to create a flat, tight midsection to match the rest of an already-tight physique.
The Liposuction Process
The details of the procedure will depend on the situation. It all starts with a consultation at our office in Baton Rouge or Lafayette. During this meeting, our surgeon can assess your trouble spot and help you determine which procedure is likely to give you the results you desire. We proudly offer VASER lipo and VASER Hi-Def lipo, which both utilize state-of-the-art processes to deliver multiple benefits.
During the actual procedure, the fat is skillfully removed through specialized techniques. Once you are feeling alert and stable, you will be cleared to go home. You will notice that your energy and stamina may take some time to return, but as long as you take it as easy as possible and follow our team’s instructions regarding healing, you can enjoy your results relatively quickly.
