As you age, your metabolism slows down and you experience fluctuations in your hormone balance. This is often compounded by health issues which may prevent you from engaging in many of the physical activities you enjoyed when you were younger. These inevitable consequences of getting older have caused many people to struggle with maintaining their weight as they enter their 40s, 50s, and beyond. In recent years, the Baby Boomer generation has demonstrated that they are not willing to simply accept the weight gain that commonly comes with aging. In fact, an increasing number of Baby Boomers have been turning to liposuction to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat when diet and exercise are not enough to maintain a toned body. The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) indicates that approximately 28% of people opting for plastic surgery are over the age of 42. In addition, AACS data indicates that liposuction is the most popular procedure for Baby Boomers in their 40s and 50s. Dr. David Bottger has helped many men and women in the Philadelphia area improve the appearance of their body with liposuction. He uses the tumescent, suction-assisted technique with most patients because he feels it delivers the most consistent and predictable results. In many instances, Dr. Bottger can perform your liposuction using local anesthesia. This will eliminate the risks associated with general anesthesia, making your procedure even safer. If a diligent diet and exercise regimen has not been successful in helping you achieve your desired body contour, you may want to consider liposuction. At your initial consultation, Dr. Bottger will discuss your aesthetic goals and determine whether you are an ideal candidate for liposuction.
