Liposuction Q & A

Who should consider liposuction?

The number of fat cells in an adult is fairly constant. Weight gain occurs when these fat cells plump up due to overconsumption of calories.

Diet and exercise help you burn off calories so your fat cells reduce in size, but these strategies don’t always target the areas you want to reduce. Liposuction helps remove fat in those areas that are “troubling” and just won’t slim down.

Men and women near their normal weights benefit the most from liposuction. The procedure isn’t designed for weight loss, but for contouring and sculpting. You’re also safer when undergoing surgery when you’re at a healthy weight.

Consult with Dr. DiGeronimo to determine if liposuction is the right course of treatment to achieve your aesthetic goals.

What areas benefit from liposuction treatment?

Dr. DiGeronimo treats numerous stubborn fat pockets with liposuction. These include:

  • Around the knees
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Back of the hips

Dr. DiGeronimo is passionate about sculpting your physique and may make suggestions for areas he sees that will benefit from liposuction.

How is fat grafting and liposuction used to sculpt an ideal physique?

The fat that’s removed via liposuction from areas with excess fat can be transferred to other spots that may benefit from it, such as the hands, buttocks, and face.

The Brazilian butt lift, for example, combines liposuction with fat grafting. Dr. DiGeronimo uses liposuction to remove fat from areas you want to contour, such as your thighs or abdomen. Then he purifies this fat and injects the fat into your buttocks to get a desired rounded backside.

Liposuction with fat transfer create natural-looking results for your Brazilian butt lift and give Dr. DiGeronimo more control to create the look you desire. Plus, since the fat is your own, your body is unlikely to reject it as it might with other implants.

How long do the results of liposuction last?

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from your body so they cannot plump back up, even if you gain weight. However, remaining fat cells that aren’t removed with the process can swell if you gain notable weight.

To maintain the best results, stick to a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
