Losing Those Last Pounds
Have you been sticking to a diet and exercise regimen and being successful? You might be finding that although you lose a lot of weight you are not happy with some areas where the fatty tissue is stubbornly remaining.
Exercise helps in losing weight partly by speeding up the metabolism and partly by using up more calories. When we do a regular gym workout we can build up the muscle tissue to good effect in many areas, such as in the arms or on the male chest.
But some areas tend to retain fat and this becomes frustrating when you are trying to create a slim and shapely body profile. Some examples of those areas are:
- Under the chin in everyone
- The love handles in everyone
- Upper female arms
- Upper female thighs
- Lower abdomen if you have had babies
Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)
When you come to the Cosmetic Surgical Center in Dallas Texas, Dr. Rai can talk with you in a personal consultation about this issue. UAL is a way of doing liposuction that can help solve the problem. This procedure uses ultrasound to vibrate the cannula that removes fatty tissue. You cannot hear it vibrating as ultrasound is outside the human hearing range. But that subtle vibration helps to break up the fat cells, liquefying them for easier removal.
UAL can be done on smaller areas, like beneath the chin, and can give you a more sculpted look. Please see Liposuction Questions for more information.
If you would like to learn more about liposuction or any other cosmetic surgery procedures, please call or email our cosmetic surgery office for a free consultation with Dr. Rai.
