Liposuction

Liposuction can reshape and smooth the contours of your body. These procedures can sculpt your body to remove unwanted fat from specific areas, including the neck, abdomen, hips, buttock, thighs, knee, upper-arms, back(to remove the “back bra roll”) and calves.

Laser liposuction takes the liposuction technique one step further, using a laser to emulsify the fat and tighten the skin before the fat is removed. It delivers laser-powered energy to the fat cells through a very small fiber inserted through tiny incisions. The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and liquefies the fat. The laser also cauterizes blood vessels, which reduces bleeding and bruising that may occur during the process. Collagen tissue is also stimulated at the same time to tighten loose skin. After the fat is liquefied, a canula is inserted to gently remove the liquid fat. This type of procedure generally causes less bruising and swelling, faster recovery times, and improved skin tightening than traditional liposuction.

Liposuction performed under both general anesthesia as well as local anesthesia and light sedation. Many of our patients resume normal activities the next day and return to full activity in two weeks. We do recommend that our patients wear a compression garment for six weeks after surgery. Most patients will begin to see results within one week after surgery, with final results at about six months.

Liposuction FAQ

What areas of the body can liposuction improve?Liposuction can smooth contours and remove unwanted fat from many areas of the body – including the abdomen, where many people have the dreaded “muffin top.” We also use liposuction for under the chin, male chest, hips, thighs, knees, upper arms and back, where a “bra roll” of excess fat often develops.
If I gain weight does the fat return?No, once the fat cells are removed by liposuction they are gone for good.
Does it improve the look of skin?Yes. Although, liposuction is not an effective treatment for the dimpled skin known as cellulite, it does stimulate collagen tissue at the same time fat is removed. This helps tighten and improve loose skin.
How long does it take for liposuction and when do you see results?Liposuction is performed under local anesthesia with light sedation or general anesthesia depending on the number, size and location of the affected areas. Many of our patients are able to resume normal activities including work, in a day or two and return to full activity in two weeks. We do recommend wearing a compression garment for about six weeks after liposuction. Most patients see results within one week after liposuction with maximum results at about six months.
