Body Contouring During the Holidays

Holiday weight gain have you feeling down? If you’re like many of us, denying those special cookies your aunt makes on special occasions or passing on the extra stuffing could leave you feeling like you have no control over your holiday season weight gain. Liposuction surgery is a popular procedure and during the holidays there is a boom in demand, which is easy to see why! Countless men and women prepare for family get togethers and reunions with friends whom they haven’t seen in a while; there’s no doubting, many are eager to look their best. While you may have been dieting and exercising all year, stubborn bulges of fat can linger in certain problem areas, and liposuction just might be the remedy for slimming your figure.

“Patients with limited fat deposits in the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms are the best candidates for liposuction,” states Dr. Zoran Potparic, a Fort Lauderdale based plastic surgeon with decades worth experience in body lipo-sculpting. “This is particularly the case with younger patients with good skin and muscle tone. However, some patients may need a combination of tummy tuck and liposuction in order to achieve desired shape. The decision about what kind of surgery best fits your needs and desires should be made on the basis of a detailed, in person exam and thorough discussion between patient and surgeon.”

Liposuction surgery provides excellent body sculpting results, eliminating excess fat on the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, lower back, thighs, and anywhere else that pumpkin pie may be hiding. Recovery from liposuction will take about a week and now that summer is over, it is the time to make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon.

“Liposuction surgery is in most instances done in general anesthesia. Twilight or local anesthesia may be an option for patients that have very small deformities. Harvested fat may be used in the form of fat grafts to enhance certain problem areas like the buttocks and hips (Brazilian Butt Lift) in selected patients. Recovery is within several days with minimal pain and discomfort,” says Fort Lauderdale liposuction expert Dr. Potparic.

Opting for liposuction surgery can give you the motivation you need to go full force in achieving your most desired figure in the new year or contour the body you have been working on all 2016! While liposuction may not get rid of all your body fat, your results will be noticeable and feeling good on the inside and out is what give us at Dr. Zoran Potparic Plastic Surgery the utmost pleasure.
