Liposuction at Size 0: When Being Skinny Doesn’t Equate to Being Trim

I’m a Size Zero and I Got Liposuction
, an article recently published in Harper’s Bazaar, followed the plight of a size zero woman who underwent liposuction. Size zero, you ask—why would someone of that size need liposuction? Although the need for liposuction may seem far-fetched, Megan O’Brien explains that since childhood, she struggled with a protruding stomach. Like her mother before her, Megan could not shake the extra tummy weight. Megan described her skinny, long-legged body and rounded belly as a “spider”.

Megan’s plastic surgeon was hesitant to operate—advising her to “go to the gym. If it does not go away after that, come back”. After not seeing any change, she went back to her plastic surgeon—this time, he agreed. Finally, Megan had the proportionate tummy she had always wanted.

“Do I feel like a new person? No, but I do feel like someone who can go out confidently.”
–Megan O’Brien, Author of I’m a Size Zero and I Got Liposuction

Like Megan, many of us have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Factors like age, heredity, or a slowing metabolism can have an impact on our body’s ability to naturally shed stubborn fat. Plenty of our Denver patients come to us expressing that they do not feel their body is cohesive. With the help of liposuction, Dr. Mouchantat can reshape your body by targeting specific areas of fat.

Not meant for heavy weight loss, liposuction is a body contouring procedure. Liposuction treats areas prone to fatty buildup which are often the hardest to lose through diet and exercise. Slimming and shaping the body, liposuction gives you a lean and contoured body. Performed nearly anywhere stubborn fat occurs, most commonly, liposuction is performed on the:

  • Stomach
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Neck

Removing fat permanently from your body, liposuction is an effective procedure that can have dramatic results. With liposuction, fat cells are broken-up and suctioned out through a small incision. Dr. Mouchantat’s experience allows him to strategically and inconspicuously place the incision.

Many of us can relate to Megan’s struggle. Our bodies often have troublesome pockets of fat—with liposuction, we can help. Our goal at Mouchantat Plastic Surgery is to have you leave us feeling confident in your body. Regardless to whether you are a size zero, six, or twelve, we encourage you to schedule a consultation  with Dr. Mouchantat to see how we can help you achieve a contoured body.
