Positive changes in your lifestyle – better food, more exercise – can help you lose weight and improve your energy and vitality. However, there are some parts of your body that seem to never shrink no matter how much you work out. Weight loss might make some bulges and flab more visible, but with a simple liposuction procedure you can sculpt your body into the shape you want.

Liposuction is the second most popular surgery done for cosmetic reasons in the United States. An unwanted shape caused by excessive fat can be treated with liposuction by Dr. Kanter in Hampton, Virginia.

Liposuction is a procedure that is completed through multiple small incisions. Once these incisions have healed, they usually become almost imperceptible. Bulging of fat cells can be directly treated, even if you’re unable to do it with a strict diet and constant exercise. Liposuction can remove those stubborn fat cells, and once they are removed they won’t come back. Even if you were to gain or lose weight, the contour outcome will remain consistent.

Our bodies do not generate new fat cells with weight gains, but put new fat to be stored into the cells we already have. With this procedure, the treated area and its relationship to other areas of the body are forever changed. Liposuction patients enjoy a rapid recovery, and are able to resume activities in 2-3 days and can accomplish most preoperative activities in one week.

We are also proud to feature the Smartlipo MPX™ laser body sculpting procedure that helps patients achieve smoother skin and a youthful body.
