Lipoplasty (more commonly known as liposuction) targets unwanted fat deposits commonly located in the neck, lateral breasts, abdomen, hips or thighs. While diet and exercise are the hallmark of any weight loss strategy, a liposuction can selectively target areas of fat in your body that do not respond well to diet and exercise alone.
Where a tummy tuck uses a long incision to remove excess skin, liposuction uses a few small incisions to gain access to the fatty deposits. A thin tube then removes the fat cells permanently in order to enhance contour. Often, liposuction is performed in addition to other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, neck rejuvenation, or others.
Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure and most people recover quickly and return to work within a few days and resume all normal activity within 2 weeks.
Through an expertly performed liposuction procedure, you can achieve a more toned and contoured body free from excess fat accumulation. Our patients share the procedure achieves immediate results in terms of weight reduction and newfound freedom to wear clothes that have been very tight to wear or completely unwearable for a long time. Many find new incentives and energy to participate in activities once passed by due to appearance and weight.

A good candidate for liposuction is defined as any person who has realistic expectations, is in good health and is likely to be happy with the results of liposuction. Although liposuction can often provide very substantial improvements, it is rare for liposuction results to be absolutely perfect.
The most frequently treated areas for women are the abdomen, breasts, hips, outer thighs, anterior thighs, inner thighs, knees, arms, buttocks, cheeks and neck. In men, who comprise about 15% to 25% of liposuction patients, the most commonly treated areas include the chin and neck area, abdomen, flanks (“love-handles”), and breasts.
When liposuction is done totally by local anesthesia, patients can usually depart from the surgical facility within 30 minutes of the completion of surgery. When general anesthesia is employed, then patients usually require one to three hours of post-anesthesia observation before being discharged home. Most patients can return to a desk-type job with two days after tumescent liposuction. Because of the significant decrease in swelling, inflammation and pain after tumescent liposuction, patients are able to return to normal physical activities very soon after tumescent liposuction.
