Dr. Bermant marks the patient's contours before their liposuction surgery. These contour maps are use by me during surgery as a guide to the location of the fat and the sculpting needs.

Notice how the sculpture is for a rebalancing of this patient's contour by liposuction.

She requested deeper gluteal folds as part of the recontouring. Follow the contours of the buttocks and posterior leg to see how the changes coincide with the before surgery contour map.
Liposuction can help remove fat resistant to exercise and dieting, but is not an answer to general weight loss. Exploring your options is best done during an in office consultation. Some of the contours are from muscles and bone which are not changed by this surgery. Part of the examination is helping you understand where extra fat is located and what can be treated.
Suction lipectomy can be use for subtle changes as in this patient, or more major liposculpture. Fat cells removed do not return. Remaining fat cells can get bigger. Leaving a layer behind permits natural movement of the skin over the deeper structures. Excessive fat removal can look very strange when the body moves.
