The best candidates are people with localized accumulations of fat in specific areas. The surgery can be used both on average sized and obese patients, but larger patients may benefit more from another body contouring procedure
such as a body lift.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate is through a one-on-one consultation with one of our plastic surgeons.
Liposuction is achieved through small incisions made in the treatment area. A cannula, or thin hollow tube, is then inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat cells. A surgical vacuum is used to suction the fat out of the body, resulting in a slimmer body contour.
It can reduce excess fat deposits in many areas of the body, including the neck, breasts, back, arms, buttocks, hips, love handles, thighs, calves, and ankles.
Will liposuction make me lose weight?
The procedure removes fat deposits from targeted areas of your body, but is not a good method for weight loss.
Are the results of liposuction permanent?
Adults do not grow new fat cells. As you gain weight, your fat cells do expand. Once removed, these cells cannot grow back, but the existing fat cells can still expand. Weight gained after surgery, will be negate results.
Will liposuction produce indentations in my skin?
Dimpling or indentations in the skin were once a concern however modern advancements greatly reduce the risk of these indentations.
