Approaching liposuction

Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery, according to Dr. Jaime Flores, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon, who also adds that it has been the main cosmetic surgery for decades.

Breast surgery (breast augmentation, lift or reduction) is the second most popular cosmetic surgery and abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, the third.

The cosmetic & reconstructive surgeon mentions liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. “Liposuction is not all about losing weight even though the patient can lose weight, because the doctor removes the fat. It’s a body contouring procedure, and the patient loses a little bit of girth and circumference. In consequence, the patient goes down a few sizes,” he says.

Body contouring is smoothing out the rows around the bra line taking out that unwanted fat that hangs out over the pant line. “Some of the women don’t like the fat inside the inner thighs. So it is removing just the right amount to give them what they want without causing harm,” the Doctor says.
