Liposuction continues to be one of the top procedures sought after by patients. Most patients who call to inquire about liposuction are interested in the procedure with the idea of reducing their overall body weight. The truth is liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is important that patients understand this especially in the US population in which 30% of the people are considered overweight or obese. Liposuction has become extremely competitive over the years and many doctors who are not plastic surgeons perform the procedure. In Florida a recent law was passed to prevent doctors from performing the procedure in facilities that were not accredited. This law was as a result of deaths from liposuction procedures in which safety measures were not followed. Due to the popularity of the procedure many patients believe that it is not a big deal and that anyone can perform liposuction. Dr. Kim explains that liposuction is a sculpting procedure. In sculpting artistic skill is needed and Dr. Kim is a true artist. In a sculpting procedure fat is removed and unfortunately there is no easy way to replace the fat if the result is not aesthetically pleasing. In order for patients to have a natural and toned appearance following liposuction is necessary for Dr. Kim to use special techniques and liposuction instruments to create a smooth result. Liposuction done correctly is not a one size fits all procedure. As a true artist and experienced ASPS plastic surgeon Dr. Kim takes the necessary time to create an enviable result. When it comes to expert results and safety it does matter who performs your liposuction procedure.
