The appearance of excess fat is often due to a lack of exercise and improper nutrition. Unfortunately, some of us who do adhere to strict diet regimes can also retain stubborn fat. Of the many factors that contribute to those love handles, age and genetics are the least controllable. When it feels like our bodies are working against us, it’s good to know that support is out there. At Illuminate Plastic Surgery we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your aesthetic and wellness goals. Our excess fat treatments are designed to deliver excellent results while minimizing downtime whenever possible.
Excess body fat often lingers around the abdomen, back, flanks (love handles), thighs, and under the chin. These trouble areas often have the highest concentration of fat cells. Due to this, they are the hardest parts of the body to sculpt. Illuminate makes every effort to encourage proper nutrition and exercise. However, for these regions a specialized excess fat reduction treatment may be necessary. We have found that reducing these fat pockets improves self-esteem and helps maintain motivation amongst those pursuing a healthy lifestyle.
Liposuction is a procedure that involves the use of a suction machine to surgically remove excess fat from unwanted areas on the body, such as below the chin. The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who have persistent bulges of fat that have not responded favorably to diet and exercise.
A thigh lift, also known as a thighplasty, is used to treat excess fat and loose skin around the thighs. If you have excess thigh skin and think you may be a good candidate for a thigh lift procedure, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Boudreault at our convenient Palo Alto & San Jose locations.
Treatment results vary based on your preferred treatment method. Typically, surgical and some non-surgical procedures for fat removal involve some downtime. However, our specialists always aim to do everything possible to minimize any post-treatment discomfort for our patients. For specific information, we encourage you to visit our respective treatment pages or contact our San Jose or Palo Alto plastic surgery office directly.
