In 1982, a little known procedure that took fat away forever was starting to gain momentum. Soon it would be a household name in northeast Ohio. In Cleveland, this surgical procedure was done by no plastic surgeon, except one. Dr. Michael Wojtanowski saw something very promising in this fat removal, body sculpting procedure and decided to bring it to his practice, spending countless hours perfecting techniques to sculpt bodies and offer patients the vision that they had for their own bodies. He was the first to bring this fat removing procedure to Cleveland.
The procedure? Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty.
Liposuction Surgery performed by a board certified plastic surgeon sculpts your body, eliminating pockets of fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts, back, arms and neck. It is one of the top 5 most desired surgical procedures in America.
There are various methods of Liposcution to remove fat. You may have heard the names Tumescent, Smart Lipo, Suction assisted lipo (SAL) and more. The method selected by Dr. Wojtanowski depends on your individual anatomy and desired goal. The procedure is typically performed under anesthesia as an outpatient treatment. At Ohio Clinic for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery our patients enjoy the privacy of our Surgical Facility, Surgiplex, which is located right at the Westlake office.
Liposuction does not get rid of cellulite or loose skin and patients who lead a healthy lifestyle and do not smoke are the best candidates.
Liposuction is the gold standard when it comes to permanent fat removal of areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise. A consultation with Dr. Wojtanowski is the best first step to find out if you are a candidate and if this is the best procedure for you.
