Toledo liposuction plastic surgery for body and face fat removal.

Sometimes, even a strict diet or a disciplined exercise program cannot conquer stubborn areas of excess fat. For those who seek smoother or better-proportioned body contours, liposuction may be the answer. Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess deposits of fat from specific areas of the body, face, or neck. For men and women in Toledo, liposuction plastic surgery can offer the outcomes they desire. Liposuction is most commonly recommended for men and women of normal weight who simply want to improve their body contour. It is not a treatment for obesity.

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you desire fat removal or contouring in any of the following areas:

  • Cheeks, chin, and/or neck
  • Upper arms
  • Breast or chest area
  • Back
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips and/or buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Inner knee
  • Calves and ankles
