Dr. Kimberly Carpin is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the Webster, TX, area who can help with procedures such as liposuction. Liposuction is a popular cosmetic treatment that is used to remove unwanted fat from a specific, targeted area of the body that might not be responding to increased exercise or an improved diet. However, what about excess skin? It is important to understand what liposuction can and cannot do to determine if you are a good fit.

What Happens During Liposuction?

During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Kimberly Carpin will use a special cannula and suctioning device that is inserted into the skin and removes fat cells manually from the trouble areas. Liposuction can remove a significant amount of fat, but sometimes this will leave behind excess skin that may hang or remain loose on the body.

Will Liposuction Address Excess Skin?

No, liposuction is designed to remove excess fat and improve body contours. It is not meant to treat sagging or loose skin, as it will not help tighten the skin’s structure. If you have loose or sagging skin after weight loss or due to aging, you may need a different procedure, such as a tummy tuck or body lift, before considering liposuction. A consultation with your plastic surgeon, Dr. Kimberly Carpin, can help determine which procedure would be best for your particular needs and goals.
