Illinois - Liposuction Clinic
Liposuction has become one of the most popular elective surgeries performed today both around the world and among our patients in Illinois. With the ability to extract fat cells from troubled areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs, Illinois residents have chosen liposuction to help them achieve the body of their dreams. Liposuction is more than simply extracting unwanted fat. It can be used to improve chin and necklines, minimize pouchy cheeks, and to slim areas such as knees, upper arms, and the back. For Illinois residents who have tried dieting only to find they are still dealing with unwanted zones of fat, liposuction can provide the slim shape that nature has been withholding.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the extraction of unwanted subcutaneous fat cells from the body. Liposuction targets this unwanted fat by suctioning it out of the body via a small incision and a cannula (a hollow stainless steel tube). The most common area to have liposuction performed for both men and women is in the abdominal region. Liposuction is available for Illinois residents.
There are several methods of liposuction in Illinois. They include traditional liposuction (including the "wet method), tumescent liposuction (including hydroliposculpture), and several generations of ultrasonic liposuction. Traditional liposuction is generally expensive, with higher complication rates and moderate levels of improvement in the affected areas. Ultrasonic liposuction, best performed by experienced surgeons, can nonetheless produce serious complications. Tumescent liposuction, the safest and most economical of all techniques, produces the most predictable results.
Traditional, tumescent and ultrasonic suction are the main categories of liposuction methods, but there are many different combinations of liposuction techniques. All have varying degrees of risk, patient comfort and quality of results. So, it is important to thoroughly discuss your surgeon's treatment approach, any health issues or concerns you may have, and your expected results prior to agreeing to surgery.
