What is liposuction?
Fat cells become smaller when a person loses weight with diet and exercise. That is why they will eventually gain it back. With liposuction, the fat cells are literally removed from the area. By making a tiny incision in the fatty area, Dr. Hakki introduces a thin, long tube that effectively harvests and extracts the fat. This step is repeated multiple times, allowing him to gently thin the area with a sculptor’s ease. Dr. Hakki is known for his unparalleled artistic abilities as well as his outstanding scientific credentials, giving his patients at Luxxery the best of both worlds when it comes to sculpturing fat safely and effortlessly. Dr. Hakki knows where to extract a patient’s fat, but most importantly – he knows where to leave it. The doctor can create your perfect physique.
Are you a candidate for liposuction?
Patients that express interest in liposuction have areas of fat on their bodies they simply cannot get rid of. In men, these areas tend to be around the abdomen, otherwise known as “love handles.” In women, fat accumulation occurs in the hips, thighs and to a lesser extent in the abdomen. The ideal liposuction candidates are people who are not extremely overweight, ranging between 30 to 40 pounds over their ideal body weight with localized areas of fat. Additionally, liposuction works best on people who have skin that is healthy and able to stretch back when the fat is removed.
Some patients may need a combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction procedure for optimal results. This applies to patients such as the elderly, or those with excess fat to be removed from one area (usually loose skin surrounding the abdomen.) Schedule an appointment with Dr. Hakki where he will customize the right procedure for you.
