Often exercise and diet alone cannot achieve the body you want. Liposuction is an option for women and men who are interested in improving their body shape by removing excess fat. Liposuction can improve body contours.
Liposuction is an ideal procedure for removing pockets of fat. It is performed by using a cannula which is placed through a small incision to suction away the targeted fat cells. Using the tumescent technique, Dr. Weinberg infuses the areas to be liposuctioned with a saline solution that also contains a local anesthetic. For small to moderate size areas, patients do not require a general anesthetic. This technique allows patients minimal downtime, and many of his patients can return to work the next day.
In addition to liposuction, Dr. Michael Weinberg also offers an exciting non-surgical fat reducing technique called LipoSonix™. The LipoSonix machine uses high frequency, focused ultrasound to shrink fatty deposits. This machine is distinct from liposuction in that it does not require any incisions, making it ideal for those with localized areas of unwanted fat, and is in general better for somewhat smaller reductions than those achieved with liposuction.
