Weight loss and fat loss are two different aspects of achieving the shape you desire. Weight loss can bring your overall weight to a proportionate level for your height, but it does not address specific fat areas. You may be at your desired weight, but still have a bulging belly or saddlebags on your thighs. Liposuction can accelerate fat loss for those with targeted areas that need reducing to achieve their desired shape or figure.
Unlike weight loss, liposuction does not just minimize the size of fat cells, it removes them. Once they are gone, those fat cells will not come back. If you have struggled with fat accumulation in a targeted area your whole life, liposuction can be the right solution. It is not for weight loss but instead to re-shape the body by removing pockets of fat that are difficult to lose through diet and exercise.

No-Drain Liposculpture Technique
Liposuction or liposculpture may seem like a simple procedure, but achieving excellent results is complicated. The basic removal of fat cells can be performed by almost any plastic surgeon using a wide variety of liposuction equipment options. However, it is not the fat removed that is the most important factor; it is what is left behind and not disturbed that can make a difference in the recovery and final results of the procedure.
Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones has a unique approach to performing liposuction. He was fortunate to train under Dr. Yves Illouz in Paris, France, over twenty years ago. Dr. Illouz is the inventor of liposuction and he shared his knowledge with Dr. Jones when he spent time training in Paris. Dr. Illouz had such an influence that Dr. Jones named his specialized no-drain liposuction method with his mentor in mind – the Jones/Illouz liposculpture technique.
Dr. Jones’ method focuses on creating a liposuction surgical site that will heal quickly and without disruption to the surface of the skin. This relies on preserving the integrity of the deeper fat layer that contains the nerves and blood vessels that promote healing. His specialized technique allows the surgical area to heal without the need to insert a drain. This is important to the comfort of his patients; many liposuction patients must wear a drain for up to two weeks after their surgery. Plus, Dr. Jones’ special care for the internal components necessary for healing allow for a faster recovery with low risk of complications from the surgery.
While liposuction can produce exceptional results when you want to shape your body, you want to ensure that it is performed carefully and safely. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones has the experience and skill that you want in a plastic surgeon to achieve optimal results without the risks of additional surgery needed to fix issues that occur during the healing process.
