In spite of all of our best efforts to look good through diet, exercise, yoga, and pilates, most of us have problem areas on our bodies that have a little extra fat. It is for this reason that body contouring through liposuction has become so popular with patients of our New York City practice. These troubled areas on the body that most of us have unfortunately do not go away with dieting. I, for one, have excess fat on my waistline that is ever-present, regardless of whether I am at 4% body fat or 24% body fat. Why would this be? It seems so unfair!
Well, the fat cells on our body are like little beach balls. Each beach ball gets bigger and smaller as we gain or lose weight. However, regardless of the beach ball size, the distribution or number of beach balls in a certain area does not change. For instance, the reason I have love handles is because the number of beach balls in that area is greater than the surrounding areas. If I lose weight, the beach balls may be smaller, but there are still more in that area.
Liposuction is a surgical fat removal technique to correct stubborn deposits of fat that do not improve with diet or exercise. Dr. Freund uses advanced techniques that reduce discomfort and improve precision. Recovery is quick and there are no incisions.
