Liposuction Kansas City
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, sometimes called “lipo” by our Kansas City patients, is a surgical fat removal procedure. It’s particularly well suited for women and men who are close to their goal weights but are bothered by isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their bodies to appear disproportionate.
These localized fat deposits are sometimes inherited traits, and therefore they do not respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is often the only way to eliminate them. Because it is a surgical procedure, liposuction requires incisions on or near the treatment area.
Though it’s possible to undergo the procedure at any age, liposuction patients in Kansas City will see better results if their skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth drape following fat removal. When skin is inelastic, as it can be in older patients, it may not re-drape well. In these cases, additional skin tightening procedures are sometimes necessary.
