Liposuction for athletes, models and people with limited body fat

I regularly see people who have a starting point that many people would envy. People who are fit and eat well may have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. I have seen bodybuilders and fitness models with stubborn areas of fat around their waistline, inner thighs, outer thighs, underarm area, or under the chin.

Sometimes these patients feel like they are “cheating” by getting a little help. If they only knew how many others were getting help, they would probably feel better! Yes, bodybuilders get liposuction, models get liposuction and fitness instructors get liposuction. Yoga instructors and personal trainers work very hard to be healthy and to create beautiful physiques, but there are sometimes areas of stubborn fat that simply won’t budge no matter how hard a person works. Liposculpture is a term that is often used to describe the finesse procedure that doesn’t remove huge volumes of fat, but that can transform a body significantly.

There are many options for fat removal in addition to liposuction. . Two non-surgical options that can be effective are Coolsculpting (link) and Emsculpt (link). But for people looking to have the most dramatic result with a single treatment, liposuction is a better option. This is the most precise and predictable method of fat removal.

In fit people with low body fat, liposculpture can be completely transformational. When expertly performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, the incisions are typically very small and can often fade to a point where they are not detectable.

Blue Water Plastic Surgery values the privacy of patients. High profile patients, and all of our patients enter and exit our facility through a private, first floor entrance. Patients never need to be in a public elevator or lobby. After surgery, patients are led out a private staff entrance where the vehicle of your caretaker will be just steps from the door. For patients who travel alone, or prefer to have a medical caretaker the first night of surgery, we can arrange to have a medical professional transport you from our office to your home and stay with you the first night of surgery.
