For patients with areas of stubborn excess fat, Dr. Holzman can perform liposuction to remove fat cells and smooth the appearance of almost any area of the body. The abdomen, thighs, upper arms, back, buttocks, ankles, and chin are just some of the areas of the body that can benefit from liposuction.
There are different liposuction techniques available from which our surgeon can choose the one best suited to your needs. After selecting the most effective method of liposuction, Dr. Holzman makes a few small incisions around the area to be sculpted through which the cannula, or specialized fat-removal tool, is inserted. The cannula is moved back and forth to break down fat and suction it away from the body. After the appropriate amount of fat is eliminated, Dr. Holzman closes the tiny incisions, and the patient is dressed in a specially designed surgical garment to assist in healing.
Fortunately, liposuction performed does not require lengthy incisions or adjustments to the underlying musculature, so patients can expect a relatively swift recovery time and little, if any, scarring. After healing, the skin conforms to the newly contoured shape of the body to reveal a slender, well-proportioned figure. The art of liposuction is to figure out how much to remove. Under removal results in less than optimal results and over resection causes irregularity and dimpling. This is where experience counts. Dr. Holzman has over 20 years experience and his extensive surgical training and knowledge of anatomy will ensure that your new contours are a perfect fit.
