Even individuals who are strict about diet and exercise may struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. If you are bothered or embarrassed about fat that just doesn’t seem to go away, Northborough plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Poulos can offer a safe, effective solution. With liposuction, Dr. Poulos can skillfully sculpt one or more areas of your body for a slimmer and more proportionate physique.
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
Contrary to what many people believe, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, the procedure reduces small pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise efforts. For best results, patients should be at or near their ideal weight and have good skin elasticity and muscle tone. Dr. Poulos will design your treatment plan after evaluating your anatomy, aesthetic concerns and goals.
Liposuction can be used to help reduce fat in the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
- Chest area
- Inner knees
- Chin and neck
