Liposuction is a procedure that helps eliminate fat deposits from various areas of the body. Normally, Michigan residents who undergo liposuction have tried alternative methods to lose unwanted fat – such as various diets and exercise programs – without success. There are several different types of liposuction, and Dr. Rouchdi Rifai will discuss all of your options with you during your initial consultation.
Most liposuction procedures can be completed on an outpatient basis. However, when a substantial amount of fat must be removed, an overnight hospital stay might be required. Depending on your specific situation, you will be given either local or general anesthesia. The procedure itself involves the use of a suction device that is inserted into targeted locations on your body. Dr. Rifai suctions out the unwanted fat to give you the body contours you are looking for.
Areas of the body that respond well to liposuction include the face, neck, arms, ankles, knees, hips, thighs, and abdomen. Liposuction is a procedure that yields excellent results, but it is not right for everyone. The best candidates have a body weight that does not fluctuate.
