What to do about excess body fat
- Posted on: Sep 30 2020
Diet and exercise can only accomplish so much when it comes to addressing areas of excess body fat. If you have been eating right and increasing your exercise, but have not seen an improvement in the midsection, it may be necessary to speak to a plastic surgery about options for removing excess body fat in a more manual way.
At Elite Transformations in Palo Alto, California, patients have the opportunity to speak to Dr. Orna Fisher and her team about the advantages of treatments such as liposuction and Vanquish.
- Liposuction – one of the most trusted ways of ensuring fat reduction is with a procedure called liposuction. Liposuction is a treatment that is used by Dr. Orna Fisher to manually remove fat cells from specific areas of the body where they have accumulated. Stubborn areas such as the abdominal area are the most common for liposuction and respond well to this procedure. During liposuction, a small incision is made in the treatment area and used for inserting a cannula, which is a long wand-like device attached to a canister. The cannula is worked underneath the skin and suctions out excess fat cells into the outside canister. This treatment is tried-and-true and continues to be one of the more popular procedures performed in our practice.
- Vanquish – for patients considering non-surgical solutions, Dr. Orna Fisher may recommend a treatment that as Vanquish. Vanquish is a newer technology which uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep below the skin to treat stubborn fat cells and allow the body to naturally eliminate them through the lymphatic system. In doing so, patients can reduce the fat in the treated area without ever having to undergo a surgical procedure. Several treatment sessions are needed to see results, which are gradually improved over time.
