Are you hitting the gym and eating healthy, but still dealing with those stubborn areas of fat that just won’t disappear? If so, liposuction in Portland, Oregon, may be able to help. Read on to learn more about this procedure and what it can do for you.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular body sculpting procedure performed to eliminate stubborn areas of fat that cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. The inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and the flanks are popular areas to treat. However, there are various other areas where liposuction is applicable.

Liposuction is a very safe procedure when performed properly by a board-certified plastic surgeon. “It’s a very tried a tested plastic surgery procedure,” Dr. Bohley said.  During the procedure, Dr. Bohley creates small incisions in the treatment area(s), and a thin tube called a cannula will be placed into the incisions to gently suction out unwanted fat.

Liposuction should never be considered a weight-loss solution, but rather a final step to your body goals. It is also important that patients understand that liposuction can’t tighten loose skin, which is why Dr. Bohley takes great care to remove just the right amount of fat so the skin is allowed to retract. If you have a significant amount of excess skin, a tummy tuck with liposuction may be a better option for you.

Good Candidates

Good candidates are close to a normal body weight, but have localized areas of fat that are weight-loss resistant. Non-smokers and those with a positive outlook for the outcome of their surgery often see the best results. Overall, a consultation with Dr. Bohley will determine whether liposuction can benefit you. “This procedure can make some very nice changes in a patient who’s a good candidate,” said Dr. Bohley.

Patient Satisfaction

Liposuction has a high satisfaction rate when performed by a board-certified surgeon with advanced, minimalistic techniques. Dr. Bohley has had many patients who were satisfied after their liposuction procedure. Finally, being able to reach their ideal body goals, it can be a life-changing procedure.
