Many people in Northern California cities like San Francisco, 纳帕, 萨克拉门托, and San Jose choose liposuction even though they prioritize exercise and good nutrition and maintain a healthy weight. 抽脂术 is a procedure that removes fat from your body, 无论是腹部周围多余的脂肪, 在下巴和脖子下面, 或者在你的大腿上. It’s sometimes known as “body sculpting” because it can reshape areas of your body that may seem out of proportion.
抽脂术 can help sculpt your body by removing fat from specific areas. The procedure is intended to treat pockets of fat, not to remove fat from large, overall areas. 吸脂不是治疗肥胖的方法. It does not usually improve rippling on the skin surface, and is not a way to treat cellulite.
抽脂术 may be performed on multiple areas of the body during a single procedure. 抽脂术 is usually effective on areas such as the cheeks, 垂下眼睛, 脖子, 上臂, 乳房或胸部, 回来, 腹部, 腰, 臀部, 臀部, 大腿内侧和外侧, 内心的膝盖, 小牛, 和脚踝.
