Balance and proportion are the two essential elements in an aesthetically appealing figure. For more than three decades, liposuction has continued to be one of the most popular body contouring procedures to enhance these elements. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Koltz will artistically sculpt an attractive shape in any major area of your body, which has unsightly fat bulges or uneven contours.
Dr. Koltz has perfected innovative, less invasive surgical techniques to perform liposuction plastic surgery in Toledo, OH for suitable candidates. He will not just eliminate unwanted fat pockets from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, breasts, upper arms, and neck, but also refine the shape and contours to create detailed figure enhancements.
Why Should You Choose Liposuction Surgery?
Liposuction is one of the more customizable cosmetic surgeries that can deliver excellent benefits in a less invasive, more sustainable manner. Patients of Dr. Koltz choose this surgery for the following reasons:
Liposuction will dramatically improve the problem zones in virtually any area of your body that has stubborn fat pockets that don’t go away with diet or exercise. The surgery will create more even looking and proportionate contours, giving you an overall slimmer and rejuvenated physical appearance. You will no longer be self-conscious about your figure, and will be ready to flaunt your looks.
Permanent Fat Reduction
Removal of excess fatty tissue in the targeted areas is the primary goal with liposuction. Once the disproportionately accumulated fat is eliminated, you will have more pleasing and youthful body contours. The fat cells once eliminated with liposuction will be gone for good, and won’t return. However, Dr. Koltz advises his patients to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle post-surgery as liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise.
Improved Health and Well-Being
While liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, the removal of excess fatty deposits from your body will have considerable long-term benefits for your general health and well-being. Your body movements will become more comfortable, incentivizing you to stay active, play sports, or do regular exercises. Irritation, pain and chafing causes by large folds of fatty tissue will be a thing of the past after your liposuction surgery.
Types of Liposuction Surgery
In most cases, Dr. Koltz will recommend less invasive forms of liposuction surgery that can be performed using only local anesthesia.
This is the most popular fat reduction liposuction technique. Dr. Koltz will inject a significant amount of local anesthetic lidocaine with a saline solution in the targeted areas. Through small incisions, he will gently manipulate a thin cannula to dislodge the fat cells and remove them with a suction process.
Energy Assisted Liposuction
In some cases, Dr. Koltz may recommend ultrasound or laser assisted liposuction to remove a larger fat volume in a less invasive way. Controlled delivery of thermal energy to the treatment area will melt the fat cells and make it easier to suction them out with minimal tissue trauma. Power assisted liposuction (PAL) technique may also be used to similar effect.
Recovery and Results
With the advanced, minimally invasive liposuction techniques, your post-operative downtime may be remarkably short and without any significant discomfort. As long as you maintain stable body weight and follow a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy outstanding body contouring results with liposuction for years or decades to come.
