Miami’s Dr. Mendieta (M.D., F.A.C.S.), a board-certified plastic surgeon, specializes in a wide selection of liposuction procedures tailored to meet the desires of any individual.* The most frequently treated areas in women include the waistline, abdomen, outer thighs, inner thighs, buttocks, knees, ankles, and neckline. If your skin’s elasticity and tone are healthy and firm before undergoing liposuction, it will mold smoothly to the reduced fat cells for a firm contour.
Liposuction Informative Video
Traditional liposuction consisted of a closed system suction cannula ( a thin metal tube) that is connected to a vacuum pump that then aspirates fat cell out of the body. These fat cells are collected in containers and disposed. This procedure utilizes tiny hidden incisions for introduction of the cannula, and is controlled by the operator via direct observation and palpation. In this procedure no skin is removed, therefore, THE SKIN MUST SHRINK by means of its intrinsic elastic properties. How well the skin shrinks will depend on the person’s skin quality and texture.*
Liposuction precisely removes and reduces the amount of fat cells in hard-to-exercise body parts. Depending on the shape, size, and volume of the original fat cells, and overall positive appearance change can be achieved. When diet and exercise fail to remove excess fat from various parts around the body, liposuction is a powerful weapon.*
Liposuction can be used in the following body areas:
Arms, Including Saggy Underarms
Butts, Hips and Thighs
Calf and Ankles
Back, Chest and Breast Reduction
