What is Liposuction?

Liposuction (sometimes referred to as simply “lipo”) is the process of removing excess fat deposits from certain areas of the body. The most commonly-performed cosmetic surgery in the United States, it is best known for helping contribute to a smooth and even body shape, and positive self-image for patients.

Popular treatment areas include:

  • Thighs, Hips, and Buttocks
  • Abdomen 
  • Upper Arms
  • Cheeks, Chin, and Neck 
  • and Other Areas ​ 

Results may vary from person to person.

The benefits of for you.

While each patient will have their own personal reasons for liposuction, some common patient feedback of the procedure includes:

  • Better-fitting clothing, and ability to purchase and wear new and trendy styles 
  • Increased visibility of muscle definition 
  • An overall improvement in self-confidence and body image

Liposuction patients also experience increased confidence in their general appearance, which benefits their quality of life.  It is important to note, however, that liposuction should not be viewed as a replacement to a wellness-focused lifestyle. The procedure is not an alternative to healthy weight-loss. ​Results may vary from person to person.

The Procedure

Liposuction can be performed with either local or general anesthesia. There are both surgical and non-surgical (non-invasive) body sculpting options available. Doctor consultation can help determine which method works best for you. 

Some patients will elect to have multiple body areas treated at once. In many cases, one treatment may be all you need! Additionally, liposuction can be coupled with other reconstructive surgery procedures – saving you time and money. 

The Recovery

​Recovery is swift, with many patients returning to work within a week after surgery. Complications are rare, and side effects are generally painless, usually only mild initial bruising and swelling. Scars typically fade over the course of a few weeks. Temporary pain and numbness can often be alleviated through prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication.
