Find out if this is the right procedure for removing excess weight and getting the body you want.liposuction

We know that losing weight isn’t an easy task. While working out regularly and eating a healthy balanced diet are certainly crucial factors for leading a healthier life and shedding the pounds, we know that dealing with stubborn areas of fat can be frustrating and can impact your self-esteem. Our Hinsdale, IL, plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis is here to explain more about liposuction and what could make you an ideal candidate for this procedure.

What is liposuction?

This surgical procedure is used to remove fat from one or more areas of the body to reshape and contour the body the way you want. Liposuction can be performed virtually anywhere and is most commonly used to treat stubborn fat around the buttock, stomach, sides, thighs, back, neck and chin.

A small instrument is placed under the skin and the fat is suctioned out using this vacuum-like tool. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, so the patient will be completely asleep.

What makes someone a good candidate for liposuction?

When people hear liposuction they often think of it as a way to lose weight, but it’s important that you don’t see this cosmetic procedure as a weight loss solution. It is truly meant to enhance and contour the body, but it shouldn’t be considered a treatment for obesity because the results are too subtle. Good skin elasticity and those within 30 percent of their ideal body weight are good candidates for liposuction.

If you are a healthy individual who is realistic about the goals you want to achieve through cosmetic surgery in Hinsdale, IL, then liposuction could give you with the results you want. If you are dealing with chronic health problems then you may be at a higher risk for certain surgical complications, so we will need to perform a thorough medical evaluation beforehand to determine whether liposuction is safe for you.

Do you want to find out if you could be a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

Do you find that despite eating healthy and hitting the gym regularly that you still can’t seem to run off excess flab around your stomach? abdominoplastyHave you had difficulty losing weight post-pregnancy? It can be disheartening to find that, despite your best efforts, you still aren’t seeing the results you want. You want a body that looks as good as you feel and our Oak Brook, Elmhurst, and Hinsdale, IL, plastic surgeon, Dr. Alexandrina Saulis, is here to help make that possible.

What is an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)?

This cosmetic surgery is actually one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries around and it is designed to remove excess skin and fat around the abdomen to help offer tighter and smoother results.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

There are many reasons to consider getting a tummy tuck. From pregnancy to significant weight loss, there are several scenarios that can cause excess fat and/or loose, flabby skin around the middle. Of course, it is important that patients understand that this procedure is not considered a weight loss treatment.

Patients should already be at their ideal weight before considering a tummy tuck. This procedure is done to remove excess skin and to tighten the skin around the abdomen to reduce stretch marks and to get a smoother and shapelier frame. A good candidate will be someone who understands what this procedure can offer, as well as its limitations.

What does this procedure entail in Oak Brook, Elmhurst, and Hinsdale?

First, the patient will be placed under anesthesia. The type of anesthesia we use will be discussed prior to treatment to determine the best kind for you. Once you are under the effects of anesthesia, we will make an incision below the belly button. The type of incision we make will depend on how much skin is present. Once the skin is lifted and shaped, we will also repair the abdominal muscles. The skin that has been pulled taut when then be sutured together.
