Liposuction is not a method of weight loss
Liposuction is performed to reduce excess fat in problem areas, when even the best diets and physical exercise fails to help. Suction of fat cells can be done on the abdomen, waist, buttocks, thighs, back, arms, chin.
Plastic surgeon Vytautas Jankūnas performs liposuction operations using the “Euromi Lipomatic” system, which has the main advantage of causing the skin to shrink very soon after the liposuction procedure. The skin contraction is great – there is no loose skin. Nowadays there are just a few such apparatus in Lithuania.
The plastic surgeon points out that a maximum of 2.5 kg of fat can be removed during this procedure, therefore, if someone thinks that liposuction could help get rid of huge overweight, they should drop such illusions. However, experts agree that liposuction can be a great start of a weight loss program. Liposuction of the abdomen can also be one of the last stages of weight loss.
