Performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, liposuction can help you eliminate excess fat in areas such as your abdomen and thighs. Our practice in Fayetteville, AR, utilizes a syringe technique to precisely remove fat with minimized trauma. Dr. H.

In other words, it is far more precise and involves far less trauma. Liposuction using a syringe allows Dr. Atwood to remove fat down to the millimeter.

Once you are comfortable, Dr. Atwood will create the incisions necessary to remove the fat. Throughout your liposuction procedure, Dr. Atwood will remove a precise amount of fat to avoid divots in the skin and give you natural-looking results.
A popular treatment option performed in conjunction with liposuction is fat transfer to other parts of the body. Once the fatty tissue has been extracted from one area of the body, it is placed in a centrifuge for purification. When the tissue is ready, it can be injected into the area the patient wishes to volumize. Patients with wrinkles or other signs of aging on their face can elect to use fat grafting to give them a fuller, more youthful appearance. Patients with sagging breast tissue can also incorporate fat transfer during breast augmentation or a breast lift to help their breasts appear fuller and more projected.
When performed by an experienced surgeon, liposuction is a very safe and effective way to achieve the contours and figure you want.
