Tag Archives: Liposuction Torrance

If you’re frustrated by stubborn areas of body fat and are considering liposuction, Torrance plastic surgeons, you’ll be happy to know, have options that can help you resolve your problem. It is a rather common issue, by the way, even for individuals who work hard to stay fit. Of course, liposuction is no substitute for that hard work, but when diet and exercise have done all they can, it can help you clear that last hurdle to the slim, trim physique you’d like to see in the mirror.

Have you been struggling with a spare tire, love handles or a bit of a bulge in the hips, backside or tummy that just refuses to be worked off with exercise or reduced by dieting? Many of us have areas that are genetically predisposed to fat accumulation, stubborn pockets of fat that will remain even after all other areas of the body are slim, trim and toned. Typically, looking through the family picture album with an attentive eye will reveal similar issues in your parents, grandparents or perhaps and aunt or uncle. Sometimes these areas will appear early in life, presenting a lifelong challenge, or they may arrive on the scene as a person approaches middle-age, body fat accumulating in these areas mysteriously, with no changes in diet or exercise to account for it.

If this is the sort of issue you are experiencing, you’re just the type of person that can be helped by liposuction. Torrance patients who are in good general health and at or near their ideal body weight are the best candidates for both traditional liposuction procedures or newer, laser assisted options, like SmartLipo. Both offer permanent removal of fat and can target specific areas of fat accumulation. Traditional liposuction, which is the more invasive of the two, may be the best option under some circumstances. SmartLipo, however, can often offer comparable results with smaller incisions and less downtime, and as an added benefit, can offer some skin tightening benefits. Which of the two is the best means of meeting your body sculpting goals is a decision best made with your plastic surgeon, after a thorough evaluation of your individual circumstances.

With the help of liposuction, Torrance patients can finally win the battle of the bulge, even those particularly persistent and previously undefeatable love handles or saddle bags passed down through the family, plaguing one generation after another. However, it is important to remember that while it is a safe and effective procedure, liposuction is surgery. To minimize risk of complications, only an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon should perform liposuction. Torrance patients should also be sure to provide surgeons with accurate health information to ensure a thorough evaluation of risk factors.

If middle-age spread is creeping up on you in spite of a healthy diet and exercise plan designed to avoid it, you aren’t alone. It is quite common for people to begin putting on weight during this period of life, even as they maintain the same dietary habits and activity levels that have kept them in great shape for decades. Changes in body chemistry that occur during this phase of life, in both men and women, can cause body fat to accumulate in certain areas despite the best efforts at weight control, and those problem areas are often determined by genetics. Fortunately, when all else fails, middle age spread can be managed with liposuction.

Middle-age spread is more than just a cosmetic issue, especially for men and women who accumulate excess body fat in the abdominal region. As the waistline grows, so too does the risk of an array of health conditions, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. While a healthy, balanced diet and plenty of daily exercise is the ideal solution to maintaining a great figure and optimal health, those measures just aren’t enough to keep middle-age spread at bay for everyone. For some, problem areas develop despite a health lifestyle, with pockets of stubborn body fat developing without obvious rhyme or reason.

For women, middle-age spread tends to appear around the hips, thighs, abdomen or upper arms, often following the same pattern seen in a woman’s mother, grandmother and other female relatives. Men tend to inherit areas of middle-age spread as well, generally developing trouble spots of excess fat around the waistline, chest or lower back in much the same manner as their older male family members. These areas often don’t respond readily to diet and exercise, but they can be reduced quite successfully in most cases with liposuction.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure in which a plastic surgeon uses a suction device to break up and remove fatty tissues from beneath the skin in problem areas. The procedure uses a tiny hollow tube, called a cannula, to suction the fat through tiny incisions in the skin, which are placed carefully in inconspicuous areas to minimize noticeable scarring. With the removal of that fatty tissue, surgeons sculpt those problem areas away, creating a slimmer, firmer and more youthful body contour.

So, while middle-age spread was once considered a harmless and inevitable consequence of reaching a certain age, today we know better. Middle-age spread is not, by any means, an issue that we have to accept – and it can have harmful health effects. For many, a proactive diet and exercise is enough to keep mid-life weight gain at bay. If that fails, liposuction can offer a helping hand.

If you are one of the millions of people who have inherited a genetic predisposition to fat accumulation in certain areas of the body, you’re probably aware that diet and exercise don’t often make much headway in reducing those problem spots. Many people who are very committed to keeping fit have spent years trying to exercise those areas away, finding themselves toned and trim everywhere except those hips inherited from Mom or that back or belly bulge passed down from Dad. If this sounds familiar, liposuction is an option that you may want to explore as a permanent solution to this very frustrating issue.

Given the well-proven connections between excess weight and a vast array of serious health risks, the most important goal of keeping fit and trim is, of course, good health. However, appearance is an important factor in our everyday lives as well, and for all the effort that goes into staying in shape, looking great is a well-earned reward. Unfortunately, genetics can trump diet and exercise when it comes to body shape and style, a factor that can make it very difficult for some of us to achieve the figure we’d like.

Inherited traits, like large thighs or hips, flabby upper arms or excess fat around the waistline, can be very resistant to diet and exercise, remaining disproportionately large no matter how slim and toned the rest of the body becomes. While our grandparents may have had no choice but to admit defeat in such situations, today we have liposuction, a cosmetic procedure that can safely and effectively sculpt those problem areas away.

Liposuction is a procedure that uses suction to remove fatty tissue from beneath the skin. Your plastic surgeon will make very small incisions in the skin to access the problem area, then a cannula will be inserted through those incisions, which is attached to a suction device, to remove unwanted fat. Since this process reduces the number of fat cells in a problem area, the enhanced contour and appearance that is achieved by the procedure is generally a permanent one.

This cosmetic procedure is best suited for people who are in good general health and maintain a stable body weight, fairly close to the ideal weight for their height. Among the most common problem areas to be addressed with this procedure are troublesome pockets of body fat in the hips, thighs, abdomen, chest or buttocks. Other areas often treated include the upper arms, neck, calves and ankles. Since most patients have more than one problem area they would like to have contoured and defined, liposuction is often performed in multiple areas during the same surgical session.
