Why do people seek the services of a plastic surgeon?

2. Excess Fat Removal
For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and are looking to get rid of any sagging or excess skin, there are a range of body-contouring surgeries available to help create a more toned and aesthetically pleasing physique.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery used by plastic surgeons to reshape specific areas of the body by removing stubborn, localized areas of fat.
Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not effective for weight loss and works best for patients who are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight.
If you are looking to remove specific areas of unwanted fat that don’t necessarily match the rest of your body, then liposuction may be the procedure for you.

This popular plastic surgery, also known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that improves the overall appearance and contour of your abdomen.
This is done by removing any excess fat or skin while tightening your abdominal muscles, for a firmer, more toned appearance.
