The simple answer: liposuction. Liposuction is the gold standard for fat removal. Many people do not realize how quick the recovery actually is: you can have lipo on a Thursday and be back to work on Monday. Healing time for my patients is quick because it has everything to do with a doctor’s technique: the more careful and precise a surgeon is, the less trauma to a patient’s body, and therefore the less downtime. My current liposuction patients are getting ready to look great at the beach this summer, and I am pleased to be a part of their transformation. One beneficial side effect for many is that with a new attractive figure, patients find it easier to diet, exercise, and take better care of themselves. Looking in the mirror at a new you encourages many people to begin living healthier, happier lives.
