Cosmetic Concern: 44-year old woman with stable weight desires improved body contour.
Diagnosis: Localized adiposity of the flanks. Liposuction is about body contouring. With realistic expectations, most individuals with stable weight and localized deposits of body fat can benefit from tumescent liposuction.
Treatment: Tumescent liposuction of the outer flanks and thighs. She was back to yoga two days after her procedure. The results are permanent even if there is weight gain. The reason is that increases in weight are more uniformly distributed over the body. The procedure is performed with microcannulas and is very gentle and safe. It is so comfortable that the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia.
