Let me explain about Liposuction

Exercise and a healthy diet continue to be the best way of maintaining a slim, well-proportioned physique. However, diet and exercise are not enough to get rid of many troublesome fat deposits. If you have tried diet and exercise, and still cannot get rid of trouble spots around your chin, upper arms, waist, hips, thighs, love handles, or any other area of your body, then liposuction may be the ideal solution for you.

What is Liposuction?

One of the more popular procedures at our Connecticut facility is Liposuction. From Hartford to Stamford, patients receiving Liposuction have had amazing results. Liposuction involves the strategic removal of fat cells from specific areas of the body. Small incisions are made through which a suction device is inserted to remove these fat cells. There are a few variations of the technique, including Smartlipo, ultrasonic-assisted lipo, suction-assisted lipo, and SmartLipo Ultra. Using a laser and ultrasound combined may give you the best result. The technique most appropriate for you will be determined by Dr. Foster. It will vary on the amount of skin tightening you need.

Fat cells that are removed during liposuction will not return. However, the fat cells that remain will enlarge if proper diet and exercise are not maintained. Keeping your newly re-contoured physique will require that you continue to eat and exercise properly.

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

The best candidates for liposuction are healthy, active individuals who eat a healthy diet and are at or near their ideal weight. It is important to note that liposuction is not an alternative weight loss method. In fact, Dr. Foster does not perform liposuction on individuals with serious weight problems. The risk of complications increases significantly when larger amounts of fat need to be removed. However, complications are very rare with patients who are in good general health and require minimal fat removal.

Liposuction Procedure


Dr. Foster performs the majority of his liposuction procedures on an outpatient basis here in Connecticut. The duration of your procedure w

ill depend on how much fat needs to be removed, how many areas require treatment, and your general health. Recovery time will depend greatly on how much fat is removed. You can expect to see immediate results, and be back to your regular activities within a few weeks depending on the extent of your procedure. Dr. Foster will provide you with thorough, individualized recovery instructions.
