If you have been frustrated by stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, you are not alone. Liposuction is a surgery performed by Dr. Schlechter, that can get rid of unwanted fat deposits virtually anywhere on your body. Stubborn fat that persists despite a healthy lifestyle can be permanently removed from the body with liposuction.
During liposuction, a cannula (small tube) is inserted through a small incision into the body to suction out the fat. The area is infiltrated with a special tumescent solution, and the fat is removed with suction. The details of the procedure differ by liposuction technique. Dr. Schlechter offers the following liposuction techniques to help patients achieve a leaner and more sculpted body shape.
