Body Contouring Surgery

Sometimes diet and proper exercise are not enough to get rid of trouble fatty areas on the body. These areas may even be a result of genetics rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Dr. Alfonso Oliva performs liposuction body contouring surgery to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits; improving your body contours and proportion; and enhancing your self-image.

Liposuction surgery can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including the thighs, arms, neck, hips, waist, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, calves, and ankles. In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, in other cases Dr. Oliva performs the procedure with other plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck.

It should be understood that liposuction body contouring surgery is not a treatment for obesity and is not a replacement for regular exercise and good eating habits. People with stubborn areas of fat and who exercise regularly are the best candidates for this procedure.


What to Expect After Your Procedure

As some swelling dissipates after your procedure, your new contours will continually emerge, as well as an enhanced self-image. The initial results of liposuction should continue as long as you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

A significant weight gain can reverse the procedure’s results. Following liposuction, your slimmer and better-proportioned body should more accurately reflect the healthy and active life you lead.
