Is Liposuction Good for Weight Loss?Liposuction performed by Dr. Richard Brown at our Phoenix area office can reduce areas of stubborn fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise. However, liposuction is not an effective weight loss tool.

Removing excessively large amounts of fat using liposuction is not a substitute for healthy weight loss. Typically, no more than 5 liters of fat removal can be performed safely as an outpatient. Normally patients require an overnight stay when high volume liposuction (more than 5 liters) is performed to monitor you for safety while recovering overnight. If you are significantly overweight, the best way to start achieving your ideal figure is to begin with diet and exercise.

Once you are close to your ideal weight and still struggling with stubborn fat deposits, liposuction can help you achieve the sculpted body that you have been working so hard for. Whether you are looking for treatment for your abdomen, arms, or breasts, Dr. Brown can help you obtain the body you have always wanted.
