Liposuction | Liposculpture | Body Contouring | Salt Lake City
You’ve done sit-ups and crunches until you’re blue in the face, dieted and exercised,. No matter what you have done there are those problem areas that you just can’t get rid of. Maybe they’re the love handles that you love to hate or those saddlebags or the muffin top
Dr. Rodrigues is pleased to offer liposuction treatments to sculpt, reshape, and streamline those areas where stubborn fat tends to collect:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Cheeks, chin and neck (facial liposuction)
- Calves and ankles
During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Rodrigues makes a series of small incisions. Then, using a cannula (a thin, hollow tube ), he gently loosens and removes the fat. Dr. Rodrigues performs two types of liposuction, including tumescent liposuction and power assisted liposuction.
It’s normal to have some swelling and fluid retention after liposuction, but as these subside, you will be able to fully enjoy your new, sleeker contours. Depending on the type of liposuction procedure performed, recovery can be quicker or slower.
Liposuction can permanently reduce unwanted body fat as long as you continue to maintain a health lifestyle of diet and exercise. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight, fat can collect in the treated areas
