Genetics, hormones and other factors determine where your body stores and burns fat. When you have fat stores in undesirable areas, diet and exercise are not always effective to burn those specific fatty spots. Liposuction surgery is one of the most requested body contouring procedures, as it can permanently remove unwanted fatty deposits. HMS Plastic Surgery offers advanced options in liposuction surgery at our plastic surgery center in Miami, FL.

When you lose weight, fat cells are emptied, but they remain in the body. If you consume more calories than you burn, those calories may be stored as fat in empty cells. With liposuction, not only the fat is removed, but the entire cell. Once fat cells are gone, they do not regenerate. This is why liposculpture is very effective at reshaping the body, as it permanently removes unwanted fat cells from targeted areas.

Are You a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss method. Good candidates for liposuction are within a normal weight range but have areas of fat that are difficult to lose. Liposuction can remove up to ten pounds of fat to reshape the body. Some common areas sculpted by liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Neck or double chin

Liposuction surgery is performed using small incisions to access the fat stores. A cannula suctions the liquified fat from under the skin to reshape the area. Most liposuction patients will need to wear a compression garment to help the skin shrink and conform to a smaller size.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being. He was patient with all my questions and he made the process very smooth and clear. He took into consideration every detail we discussed during our consults I am very happy with the results!

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
