Plastic Surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group use liposuction to help patients eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat from virtually any area of the body.

Jacksonville, FL – Liposuction has proven to be an effective body contouring tool for many patients who struggle with isolated pockets of excess fat. While liposuction can be used to help men and women slim and tone areas of their body that are resistant to standard diet and exercise regimens, plastic surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group say it is not intended for patients seeking to lose a dramatic amount of weight. However, according to Drs. Ankit Desai, Michael Fallucco, and Joseph Parks, the procedure can be very useful for patients who are near their ideal weight and have localized areas of stubborn fat, helping to remove excess fat cells and give the treated area a more contoured appearance.

Liposuction can typically be utilized in a number of body areas, including the:

  • Abdomen and love handles
  • Back
  • Outer and inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves and ankles
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks

Doctors at Florida Plastic Surgery Group say, from a surgical standpoint, liposuction’s greatest benefit is the ability to remove emulsified fat from these isolated areas of the body without harming the surrounding nerves and healthy tissues. The result can be a more flattering contour and a more fit appearance.

Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, the Jacksonville plastic surgeons say patients should know what to expect after liposuction and understand that there is a recovery process, although it is often relatively short for most individuals. They also say patients should be aware that the results of liposuction will likely not remain permanent if they are not diligent about keeping up positive lifestyle habits when it comes to what they eat and how often they exercise.

Ultimately, the surgeons note, with proper care, the effects of liposuction can last for a very long time. “Patients who exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet can typically enjoy a permanently slimmer figure. To maintain the results of your surgery, keeping an active and healthy lifestyle is vital.”
