Diet and exercise are an important facet of a healthy life, but there are limits when it comes to achieving aesthetic goals. Most of us have one area of our body that is less responsive to our diet and exercise efforts than the rest of our body. Some people struggle with a stubborn pocket of fat in the mid-section, the thighs, the buttocks, the arms or even the neck. Through Long Island Liposuction Dr. Harris has helped many men and women achieve the body contour they desire.
Liposuction is performed through a tiny incision in the designated area through which a long, skinny tube called a cannula is inserted and the fat is sucked out. It is important to understand that while Liposuction does reduce fat, it is not a weight loss solution. Liposuction is intended to remove fat from a localized area and is not a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
