Many of us understand that liposuction is a procedure that surgically removes fat from pre-selected areas of the body, but not everyone knows if it is the ideal procedure for their needs. Dr. Marc Baraban Plastic Surgery in Topeka, KS provides our patients with liposuction as well as other body procedures.

If you are specifically interested in liposuction, and plastic surgery in Topeka, KS you will want to book a consultation with Dr. Baraban to ensure it is the right choice. Generally, patients who struggle to shed weight in specific areas of the body can turn to this form of plastic surgery to have the stubbornest areas of fat removed.

For example, as your preferred plastic surgeon in Topeka, KS, Dr. Baraban may suggest liposuction as an ideal treatment for you if you have lost weight and yet cannot get rid of fat in the most difficult areas. These include the buttocks, thighs, arms, stomach or areas commonly described as the saddlebags (the outer thighs below the buttocks) and the love handles (the area at the waist that is just above the hips).

If you have been effectively using diet and exercise, and yet you struggle to get the contours and silhouette desired, liposuction in Topeka, KS may be the right choice. Good candidates for liposuction include:

  • Patients less than 30 pounds overweight or near a target goal
  • Patients who have toned muscle and yet still have difficult pockets of fat
  • Patients with deposits of fat in very isolated areas
  • Patients with good overall health
  • Patients with good skin elasticity

As you can see, liposuction is not a way of losing unwanted weight. It is a surgical procedure for healthy people who have already lost all of the weight (or most of the weight) desired through regular means, but who just cannot seem to burn away fat cells in the more difficult areas.

Working with Dr. Baraban on liposuction involves your initial consultation, and then the doctor can create realistic images showing you the areas of contouring available. Because all bodies are different, the doctor will be performing customized treatment, and you will want to discuss the potential outcomes before your surgery.
