Ditch the Sweaters This “Sweater Weather” Season with Liposuction

Okay, we get it. Big sweaters are a big deal when you’re trying to hide unsightly fat pads. The areas affected seem immune to every exercise plan you ever tried. Sweaters do well hiding those upper arm bat wings and the obvious rolls around the mid-section. They are also good for producing what the name implies – Sweat! But then again, comfort is not always their forte’.

Here’s a thought – perhaps we should relegate a sweater’s usefulness to what it does best – keep us warm, and forget about using them as accessories for hiding our unshapely figure. Perhaps indeed – and maybe shift our attention toward eliminating this aesthetic nightmare which forces us to wear contour hiding apparel.

Wear Your Liposuction Proudly

Liposuction is the most common aesthetic surgery offered today. The reason being is it helps define your body’s outline the way it should be defined, with no unsightly fat rolls or sagging tissue. When performed properly by a board-certified plastic surgeon, liposuction will make every outfit in your closet fit right. Your contour will become the focal point of your wardrobe, and you will look stunning.

Upper Arm Liposuction

Arms are areas which seem to resist diets and long hours at the gym. Once you have fat there, it’s almost impossible to lose it.

Since flabby folds tend to be composed of skin and tissue rather than just fat, advanced liposuction alternatives work well with their ability to melt away fat and tighten skin.

The procedure begins when your surgeon inserts a tiny cannula into the skin. The fat underneath is melted by a laser, dissolved, and then removed with suction; next, we tighten the skin surrounding the incision before closing with sutures. The entire upper arm procedure takes between one and two hours under local anesthesia. Recovery is minimal as is swelling and scarring. And the results are fantastic, leaving you with sleek, elegant arms begging for spaghetti straps and sleeveless blouses.

Neck Liposuction and the Double Chin

Is there a better reason for a turtleneck than a double chin? These fashion icons never seem to go out of style, perhaps because of the endless supply of necks with excess fat and hanging skin.

The chin is another area which seems to ignore sensible eating and a workout regimen. It affects all body types and takes away from your facial outline. With an invisible jawline and a turkey waddle ever present, many patients are lining up for neck contouring treatments.

Innovative liposuction procedures offer the neck an improved contour which is similar to the slender and elegant neck of your youth. We use the same laser technology applied to the upper arm; fat deposits are melted away with sagging skin and tissue removed. The procedure takes about a half hour. We perform neck liposuction in our office under local anesthesia. The result is a sophisticated and beautiful neckline which highlights your face perfectly.

Belly Fat and Love Handles

Belly bulges can be a problem for people of all ages, even the young and fit. Abdominal liposuction is a popular choice for men and women from their early 20’s to their late 60’s; whoever needs a little extra help to get that perfectly sculpted tummy or subtract a few inches off their waist.

Abdominal liposuction is the answer to rid yourself of stubborn tummy fat deposits. We all dream of a tight, lean stomach as seen on a Victoria Secret runway. The truth is, that is a tough look to match. Abdomens are naturally padded with fat tissue which no amount of crunches, sit-ups, or planks can eliminate.

When considerable weight is lost due to childbirth or weight reduction happens, excess fat and skin remain.

When dealing with excess abdominal fat and skin, a tummy tuck may be what the doctor ordered. Here, your surgeon will target fat, skin, and your abdominal wall. Results are optimal for women who have had multiple pregnancies, and have abdominal muscles that need repair.


Big thighs are no fun no matter what name you call them. “Saddlebags” is not very flattering, but accurately describes this cosmetic issue. This problem seems to hit women more than men but can hit anyone no matter their age or physical condition.

The best way to shave some inches off your thighs, and round down the lower half of your body contour is the take advantage of thigh liposuction. This procedure will remove those pesky fat deposits that have homesteaded your thigh area, so they will never return, and tighten the skin left behind. Results are a sleek silhouette which starts at your waist and runs down your legs, giving you a sleek, long figure that needs no name at all.
