Excess fat along the midsection, thighs and other areas of the body can be difficult to get rid of in spite of a healthy diet and exercise. When these exhaustive efforts yield little to no changes, it is natural to feel a sense of hopelessness. Thankfully, there’s a long-term solution: liposuction. This tried-and-true fat removal procedure may be exactly the thing to help you achieve those ideal contours.

Liposuction works by removing fat through a specially designed tube called a cannula. Keep in mind that the procedure does not replace the need for a proper diet or lifestyle, but it can be an effective tool for stubborn fat removal in those infamous problem areas.

The entire process is completed in a relatively short amount of time, and the results can be seen right away. The final results will not be achieved until the swelling completely subsides.

Consult with experienced, board-certified surgeon Dr. Joanne Lopes to learn more about the benefits and risks of liposuction fat removal. Contact her office in Virginia Beach to set up a consultation today!
