Sculpt Your Figure

If you’re close to reaching your body goals, but pockets of fat are standing between you and your dream body, you’re not alone. Stubborn fat affects the best of us, even those with near-perfect physiques. We understand the struggle at MG Plastic Surgery which is why we offer liposuction for patients in Scottsdale, AZ. This procedure will remove those fat cells for good, so you can finally reach your body goals to look and feel your best.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the ultimate body contouring procedure. It helps define different regions of the body to create new contours by removing fat cells from your problem areas. It transforms the places you’ve always wanted to hide into areas you want to show off. Designed to help healthy and relatively fit individuals reach their body goals, this procedure eliminates fat cells from problem areas and reduces the total fat volume in the treatment location.

As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Manuel Gigena brings an eye for aesthetic detail and a warm bedside manner to his friendly Scottsdale practice. He is committed to delivering exceptional, patient-centered care and impeccable body contouring results that you will love.

How Does Ultrasound Liposuction Work?

This body contouring procedure can be performed with several different methods. At MG Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, we use ultrasound liposuction, where ultrasonic waves soften and dissolve the fat cells in the treatment area.

Dr. Gigena begins by making a tiny incision in your planned treatment area. He will insert a cannula through the incision, emitting ultrasonic waves that soften and dissolve the fat cells. What remains is suctioned out of the body through the cannula.

What Areas Can It Treat?

Liposuction can remove stubborn fat virtually anywhere on the body. However, the most common treatment areas include:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Inner thighs

These areas tend to hold onto stubborn fat and don’t respond to a healthy diet or even the most intense fitness routine. This procedure provides the ultimate solution for stubborn fat by permanently removing it from your problem areas.

What Are the Benefits?

The benefit of ultrasonic-assisted liposuction is that it allows us to use precision to remove the liquified fat from the treatment areas gently. This gentle process allows for greater accuracy during the procedure, helps minimize the recovery period, and leads to less bruising. Additionally, this liposuction method helps the surgeon create smoother body contours, so you get even better results.

It Pairs Well with Other Procedures

Lipo can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, but we can also use it to help accomplish the goals of other body contouring procedures – like an arm lift or tummy tuck, among others.

It Makes Your Muscles Pop

Removing that extra layer of fat can help make your hard-earned muscles finally pop. It’s no secret that stubborn fat hides muscle, so removing that fat can make all the difference in your appearance and confidence.

It Makes Your Clothes Look and Fit Better

When you remove stubborn fat from your problem areas, your clothes will look and fit better. Liposuction can help you finally get rid of that muffin top so that you look tighter, flatter, and more toned regardless of what you put on.

What kind of results can I expect?

Comparing your pre-procedure measurements with your post-procedure measurements offers tangible evidence of the changes this procedure has made. Taking before and after photos and comparing them once your recovery is over is another way to see how much liposuction has transformed your body.

Will the fat cells return?

Once fat cells are removed from your body, they will be gone for good. Adults cannot grow new fat cells. When you undergo liposuction, a significant percentage of the fat cells in your problem areas will be removed permanently and cannot return.

Maintaining Your Results Long-Term

While your body won’t grow new cells, the remaining cells in the area can expand if you gain weight after your procedure. This can negatively affect your appearance and results. The best way to ensure the longevity of your results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. When you stay consistent with your workouts and eat a healthy diet, you can ensure that your results will be long-lasting.

Consistency and Discipline

Most patients have no problem maintaining their results because they understand that this procedure is not a shortcut nor a free pass to unhealthy living. It is a way to effectively target and address stubborn fat that refuses to respond to healthy eating and regular exercise.

While some people may view body contouring treatments as a way to cut corners, it is precisely the opposite. Rather, it offers dedicated and disciplined individuals a means to reach their goals and remove stubborn fat so they can show off all their hard work.
