It is important that people of all ages exercise regularly and consume a healthy diet. A good diet and exercise routine can prevent health problems and promote longevity. People who eat healthy food and engage in daily exercise tend to look their best. A proper diet and exercise regime can slim down and tone your body and keep your skin looking great. However, for some men and women, even the most stringent diet and exercise program will not create contour in specific problem areas. In these cases, patients may wish to undergo liposuction surgery with Bozeman plastic surgeon Karl Hapcic; Dr. Hapcic can use liposuction to remove fat from specific areas of the body and face.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can be used to suction excess fat cells out of the ankles, calves, thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, flanks, arms, or chin. There are several liposuction techniques currently on the market. Most employ use of a tumescent solution that is injected into the treatment area to liquefy the fat. Next, a cannula is inserted into an incision that is made in the treatment area; the cannula acts as a vacuum, sucking fat out of the body. Bozeman liposuction surgeon Karl Hapcic uses the VASER® LipoSelection®, which utilizes a specially designed cannula that emits ultrasonic energy to make fat easier to remove.
Diet and Exercise
Whether you are planning on undergoing liposuction in the future, or have undergone liposuction in the past, making exercise and the consumption of healthy foods a part of your lifestyle is vital to your weight loss success. Liposuction is typically only performed on one or two areas of the body; the rest of the body should be kept in good shape by exercising for at least 30 minutes, five days a week.
