Sometimes fat just does not go away no matter how often we exercise and how well we stick to a healthy diet. Thankfully, there are alternatives to get rid of that stubborn fat that may be affecting your self-esteem and your overall health.

There is a procedure called liposuction that can be very effective in removing the fat deposits that diet and exercise could not. Though not all people are good candidates for this procedure, chances are if your health is good and you meet certain other requirements, board-certified Jacksonville, Florida cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ankit Desai, can perform liposuction on those troublesome areas of your body. Dr. Desai has performed this procedure on thousands of patients; typically, liposuction is performed on the:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • “love handles”
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Breasts

After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Desai will discuss the various options in liposuction he offers and explain which one is best for you and why. Liposuction can be performed under general or local. You will be instructed to wear compression garments for the first few weeks following your procedure. All incisions are less than one centimeter and will be virtually invisible to others.

Recovery from liposuction is fairly rapid. If you follow all post-procedure instructions, you should be up and around and back to work in no time. Since each patient is unique, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact number of days or weeks you will need to fully recover.
If you want liposuction and live in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra or anywhere in the surrounding area of Florida, please contact the Florida Plastic Surgery Group today to schedule an appointment.
