Sometimes, we just can’t get rid of stubborn excess fat in some areas of our body, no matter how much we diet and exercise. Liposuction can change that. Liposuction is one of the most popular surgical aesthetic enhancement procedures, and can be extremely effective at getting rid of fat pockets that can accumulate on virtually any body area. Dr. John L. LeRoy offers a range of liposuction techniques at our Atlanta, Georgia practice.

Liposuction can create a more contoured appearance on areas of your body that are affected by excess fat deposits. Although not meant to act as a replacement for diet and exercise, the procedure can be useful for getting rid of fat that you are having trouble eliminating. Liposuction can be performed on just about every area of the body, including:
- Love Handles (Flanks)
What is Liposuction? – “Liposuction was invented over 30 years ago and the procedure has gotten better and better as time has gone by.”
Up to 10 pounds of fat can be removed from the body with liposuction, and the procedure can give the body a more contoured appearance. Liposuction can also be useful for those who desire breast reduction by taking away extra fat in the breasts and reducing some of the discomfort and self-consciousness of having overly large breasts.
Liposuction surgery from our Atlanta, Georgia-area plastic surgeon utilizes a narrow tube (cannula) to break down fat deposits in the area targeted for treatment. The fat cells are then gently suctioned out of the body, leading to new contours and a slimmer appearance.
Dr. John L. LeRoy also offers his signature Band-Aid Liposuction procedure for patients who need only small areas of excess fat removed. This treatment allows for a quicker procedure and less recovery time.
The Benefits of Liposuction – “The benefit of liposuction is that you have done your diet, you have done your exercise and you have come in to polish that off and liposuction will remove that fat.”
