Types of Liposuction Franklin

Diet and exercise may help you maintain an ideal weight, but troublesome areas linger. No matter how hard you work your abdominals, a paunch may remain.

Reducing localized or targeted trouble areas may require the medical intervention of Dr. Bengelsdorf and his team at Franklin Skin & Laser.

Pitfalls of “gym-based” spot reduction

Merely exercising a targeted area doesn’t mean you will lose fat from that area. Fat broken down to fuel your exercise can come from any part of the body, not just the part being worked most.

Likewise, exercises to diminish specific areas don’t burn the significant amount of calories needed for fat loss. Cardiovascular exercises like running burn calories more efficiently than crunches.

Never underestimate genetics. If other family members store fat around their middles, you may have a predisposition.

Gender plays a role. Women entering menopause may find fat is distributed differently. Falling estrogen levels are to blame.

At Franklin Skin & Laser, we can do what nutrition and fitness regimens cannot; that is, with liposuction we can reduce stubborn fat in localized areas big and small including:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips, thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Calves, ankles
  • Chest, as in males with gynecomastia
  • Back

Liposuction is a versatile method to reduce specific spots, partly because very small incisions are made in the skin to remove fat and fluids safely from targeted areas of varying sizes and locations on the body.

Tumescent liposuction is commonly used for good reason. Medications are administered into the area being treated for comfort, pain relief, to minimize bleeding, and aid in fat removal.

Excess fat is loosened and dislodged with a thin tube inserted into the incisions and connected to a surgical vacuum or syringe.

Today’s many options

Liposuction doesn’t remove cellulite, stretch marks, or surface irregularities. Franklin Skin & Laser offers alternative procedures that may be used in conjunction with liposuction, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to remove excess skin resulting from significant fat loss.

Franklin Skin & Laser also offers Exilis, a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to apply controlled heat to safely diminish fat cells. Unlike traditional liposuction, Exilis has the added benefit of tightening skin by stimulating firming collagen. Exilis and other modern, non-invasive ways to reduce fat in specific areas, take into account how fat cells respond to outside stimuli, such as heat or cold.

While there are many types of liposuction in Franklin, TN, not every option to reduce trouble areas may be best for you. Call (615) 595-8177 to schedule a consultation. Discussing your goals, medical history, and other factors will help us develop a safe and effective treatment plan.
