You’ve been exercising for so long and you still have those certain areas of fat that won’t disappear. There has to be an easier way! Liposuction at the Columbus, Ohio office of Dr. Bivik Shah might just be the answer for the right candidate. And, it’s easy – or at least it’s easier than working out for all those years! So, what is liposuction all about? How safe is it? How bad is the pain? How long will it take? We will attempt to answer some of the more general questions here. Specific questions and diagnoses should be obtained only from a personal consultation with Dr. Shah.
Skin has a limit to how much it can stretch and still return to normal. When it stretches beyond that point, exercise and diet are not effective in returning your body to its original shape and firmness. The most effective method of dealing with this condition is to undergo a tummy tuck. Columbus, Ohio plastic surgeon Dr. Bivik Shah can perform this procedure in order to give you the smooth, firm abdomen you have always dreamed of! There are several reasons why someone may choose to have tummy tuck, including loose or excess skin resulting from weight loss, liposuction, or pregnancy. Tummy tuck corrects these conditions by removing loose, sagging skin and excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen.
