You’ve perfected your diet and renewed your commitment to the ab machine at the gym, but when you’re still struggling with extra fat around the waistline, it could take months to catch a glimpse of that six-pack.
Liposuction can be a fairly extensive procedure, especially if you decide to undergo surgery using conventional methods where the entire fat cells are removed with a cannula. Many plastic surgeons around the country are now offering more advanced treatments such as VASER liposelection and SmartLipo that use laser light or ultrasound energy to break down the fat cells before removal. This results in less trauma to the tissues, and a more comfortable experience overall.
