Clinic Femina – Liposuction of waist, abdomen, knees and/or thighs


In today’s world, looking and feeling good means having a fit, well-proportioned body, however, for many people this may seem like an unreachable goal. Sometimes even a strict diet or a disciplined exercise program cannot conquer stubborn areas of fat. For those of you who seek a smoother or better-proportioned body contour, liposuction may be the answer. Liposuction, often called lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, face or neck. Liposuction can be used to slim the hips and thighs, flatten the abdomen, shape the calves and ankles or reduce a double chin.

Liposuction is most commonly recommended for men and women of normal weight who simply want to improve their body contour. The procedure can produce excellent results for people who have deposits of excess fat that make certain body areas appear disproportionately large. Although liposuction is not a treatment for obesity it can alter body proportion and is sometimes the best way to reduce fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.

People of almost any age may undergo liposuction, however, patients with good skin elasticity will achieve the smoothest contour after fat is removed.

You will first have a complimentary consultation to learn more about this process. If it is something you feel is right for you, a meeting with our doctor to discuss your overall health will also take place at the initial visit. Often this procedure can take place the same day as your consultation if you feel comfortable with this.
