How Liposuction St Louis Helps Body Sculpting

Localized accumulations of fat which are often inherited and frequently prove impossible to eliminate by exercise or dieting can now be removed permanently by LipoSculpting or body sculpting in St. Louis with liposuction surgery. One top concern by patients, besides fat removal, is loose, sagging skin.

Because much of our shape is genetically predetermined, diet and exercise alone won’t work the way we want it to. Liposculpting can help, however . With laser-assisted lipo techniques, body contouring is feasible.

Liposuction Myths
Liposuction Safety


The Tumescent Technique has a much safer profile than non-tumescent liposuction, involves much less bleeding, a more rapid recovery, and eliminates the dangers of general anesthesia. Tumescent liposuction is proven to be a much safer alternative to other types of lipo, which use general anesthesia. It eliminates excess bleeding and speeds up recovery times.

About Fat

Body fat increases progressively with age. It’s why a slender physique is often associated with youth, and by age 30, it’s pretty much a matter of nature vs. nurture when it comes to the fat redistribution. This is because of genetics. You may find yourself with bigger thighs and hips, no matter how hard you exercise. Fat distribution becomes even more of a challenge after pregnancy and other life changes involving fluctuations in weight. Lipo can help. We can surgically remove the fat in a minimally invasive manner – to give you a body you’ve always dreamed of.

3 Compartments of Fat in the Body

First is visceral fat, which is the largest area to store fat. Visceral fat is the fat around your internal organs and is found inside your torso. It surrounds your intestines, kidney, and pancreas. This fat is the most metabolically active and has the most effect on your health; for example, too much of this fat can affect your cardiovascular health. This area of fat is also the most sensitive to weight changes. It is the most likely area to increase in size with weight gain and the area that is most sensitive to weight loss.

The second area is your essential fat store. This is the fat that is inside your organs and bone marrow. A certain amount of this fat is essential for life. This type of fat is not very sensitive to weight change. Only people at the more extremes of weight, such as significantly under or over weight, have changes in this fat area.

The third fat area is subcutaneous fat. This is the fat that is between the skin and muscle and is the least metabolically active. It is affected very little by weight changes. The amount of this type of fat a person has is strongly influenced by genetic makeup. For example, excess fat in the subcutaneous area tends to run in families, leading to similarities in the way generations of family members tend to look (i.e. I have my mother’s hips, thighs, arms, etc.…). Certain genetic disorders such as lipedema, Decrum’s disease, and other lipodystrophies are classic examples of how genetic influences determine subcutaneous fat deposition. Liposuction targets areas of subcutaneous fat.

Body fat of an adult tends to increase gradually over the years. After the age of 30, an individual tends to add fat according to a genetically predetermined pattern. This fat distribution is often resistant to exercising and dieting. An example of genetically predetermined fat distribution that’s resistant to diet and exercise is the fat that appears on the abdomen and hips of a woman after pregnancy. For many people who have inherited excessive accumulations of fat, liposuction is the only realistic means of changing the body’s silhouette. In effect, liposuction is equal to focusing the effects of dieting to very specific areas of the body.

The most frequently treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, and beneath the chin. In men the most commonly treated areas include the love handles, the abdomen, breasts, and the neck/chin area.

Fat cells that are removed by liposuction in St. Louis do not grow back. As long as the patient does not gain excessive amounts of weight, the new, more pleasing silhouette is permanent. A woman who always tends to put weight on her thighs and abdomen will find that after liposuction, these areas are much less likely than other areas to accumulate fat when she gains weight. In fact, in patients who have had liposuction and have subsequently gained weight, the areas originally treated by liposuction have maintained their new desirable silhouette, whereas areas not treated by liposuction have been the sites of new deposits of fat. For men, St. Louis Lipo can remove love handles, fat from the abs, chest and neck. All procedures are done in-office.

Permanent Liposuction Results

When it’s gone, does it stay gone? The fat cells surgically removed by our technique do not grow back – unless there has been excess weight gain. Women who gain weight easily will usually keep the weight off in areas that have been treated with liposuction, such as in the thighs or hips.
