Understanding Liposuction

MythBusters: Dispelling Common Misconceptions About Liposuction

Let’s dispel some common myths surrounding liposuction and bring some clarity to the transformative potential of this cosmetic procedure. At Wellspring Plastic Surgery, our commitment to education and transparency ensures that our patients are well-informed and empowered to make confident decisions about their body contouring journey. 

  • Myth 1: Liposuction is a Weight Loss Solution

Fact: Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is designed to remove localized pockets of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates for liposuction are individuals close to their target weight with specific areas of concern.

  • Myth 2: Liposuction Results Are Instant and Permanent

Fact: While you will notice a significant improvement in body contours immediately after liposuction, final results may take several weeks to months to fully manifest. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for sustaining the results over time.

  • Myth 3: Liposuction is Only for Women

Fact: Liposuction is not gender-specific and is performed on both men and women. Men often seek liposuction for areas like the abdomen, flanks, and chest, while women commonly target the thighs, hips, and arms.

  • Myth 4: Liposuction Can Treat Cellulite

Fact: Liposuction is not a cure for cellulite. While it may improve the appearance of cellulite to some extent, its primary focus is on removing excess fat. Other treatments may be more effective for addressing cellulite specifically.

  • Myth 5: Liposuction is Painful

Fact: Liposuction is performed under anesthesia, ensuring that patients do not feel pain during the procedure. Post-surgery, some discomfort and bruising are normal, but this is typically manageable with prescribed medications.

  • Myth 6: Liposuction Leaves Significant Scarring

Fact: Liposuction incisions are small and strategically placed, resulting in minimal scarring. Dr. Claude-Jean Langevin employs advanced techniques to minimize scarring and promote optimal healing.

  • Myth 7: Liposuction Is Only for the Stomach

Fact: Liposuction can be performed on various body areas, including the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, back, and neck. The procedure is highly versatile and can be tailored to address specific concerns in different regions of the body.

If you’ve been hesitant due to some of these misconceptions, schedule a consultation with our expert team to gain personalized insights and discover the true benefits of liposuction.

Versatility of Liposuction Across Different Body Areas

Liposuction has become a versatile solution for those seeking to address stubborn fat deposits and achieve a more contoured silhouette. From common trouble zones to unexpected areas, discover the possibilities of liposuction and how it can redefine your contours.

  • Abdomen and Waist: One of the most popular areas for liposuction is the abdomen and waist region. This includes addressing excess fat around the midsection, love handles, and the notorious “muffin top.” Liposuction in these areas can create a more defined waistline and contribute to a flatter, more sculpted abdomen.

  • Breasts: For women, breast liposuction is often chosen to address disproportionate breast size, asymmetry, or to achieve a more streamlined silhouette. In men, this procedure is commonly used to create a more masculine chest contour. The procedure not only enhances physical appearance but can also contribute to increased self-confidence and a positive body image for both men and women.

  • Thighs: Liposuction is commonly employed to target the inner and outer thighs, helping to eliminate localized pockets of fat. This can result in smoother, more toned thighs and an enhanced overall leg contour.

  • Hips and Flanks: The hips and flanks (“love handles”), often resistant to diet and exercise, can benefit significantly from liposuction. By strategically removing excess fat, our skilled surgeon at Wellspring Plastic Surgery can create a more balanced and shapely profile.

  • Buttocks: Liposuction can be utilized to sculpt and contour the buttocks, enhancing their shape and achieving a more lifted appearance. This procedure is often combined with other body contouring techniques for comprehensive results.

  • Arms: The upper arms, a common area for localized fat deposits, can be refined through liposuction. This procedure helps to eliminate excess fat and create a more toned and streamlined appearance.

  • Neck and Chin: The neck and chin area, notorious for the development of a double chin or excess fat, can be addressed with precision through liposuction. This results in a more defined jawline and a rejuvenated facial profile.

  • Chest: In both men and women, liposuction can be used to treat excess fat in the chest area. This is particularly relevant for men dealing with gynecomastia, where liposuction can help create a more masculine chest contour.

  • Back: The upper and lower back, including the bra line area, can be sculpted with liposuction to eliminate back rolls and achieve a smoother, more contoured appearance.


Whether targeting common trouble zones or more unique areas, the versatility of liposuction allows for a personalized approach to body contouring, helping you achieve the sculpted, confident look you desire.

The Liposuction Procedure Step-by-Step

  • Step 1: Initial Consultation

The journey begins with a thorough initial consultation where you meet with Dr. Claude-Jean Langevin. This is a crucial step, allowing him to understand your aesthetic goals, assess your medical history, and discuss the specific areas you wish to address. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Claude-Jean Langevin will help you choose the best treatment plan. Our patient-centric approach ensures that every aspect of the procedure is tailored to meet your unique needs.

  • Step 2: Pre-operative Assessment

Before the day of the procedure, a detailed pre-operative assessment is conducted to ensure you are in optimal health for surgery. This may include a physical examination, laboratory tests, and a discussion about any necessary preparations or precautions.

  • Step 3: VitaMedica Recovery Support System 

Prior to your procedure, you will receive a VitaMedica Recovery Support System that contains anti-inflammatory properties and will help promote healthy skin, new cell and tissue growth. Homeopathic arnica is also included in the system, which provides relief from bruising, swelling, stiffness and pain. 

  • Step 4: Anesthesia

On the day of the procedure, you will be provided with either local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the liposuction and your personal comfort. Our priority is to ensure you are relaxed and pain-free throughout the process.

  • Step 5: Incision Placement

Tiny, inconspicuous incisions are strategically made in the targeted areas. These incisions serve as entry points for the thin tubes called cannulas, which will be used to suction out excess fat. The careful placement of incisions minimizes scarring and ensures precision during the procedure.

  • Step 6: Fat Removal

The surgeon inserts the cannula through the incisions and gently maneuvers it to break up and suction out excess fat. The advanced techniques employed at Wellspring Plastic Surgery enhance precision and promote smoother fat removal.

  • Step 7: Sculpting and Contouring

This stage showcases the artistry of liposuction. The surgeon sculpts and contours the treated areas to achieve the desired shape and proportions. Attention to detail and a keen aesthetic eye are paramount at this stage, ensuring a natural result.

  • Step 8: Closing Incisions

After the fat removal and contouring are complete, the incisions are meticulously closed. The small size of these incisions contributes to minimal scarring, allowing for a quicker and more comfortable recovery.

  • Step 9: Post-operative Care and BodiFirm™

Following the procedure, you will be provided with detailed post-operative care instructions and information on wearing compression garments, restrictions on activities, and a schedule for follow-up appointments. 


You will also receive the award-winning BodiFirm™ product. This clinically-proven formula helps to firm, tighten and lift the appearance of skin to achieve a more sculpted and toned look. BodiFirm™ will also work to restore hydration and support the skin’s moisture barrier to make it ideal post-procedure.


Our team at Wellspring Plastic Surgery remains dedicated to supporting you throughout the recovery process.

  • Safety Measures and Considerations: Safety is paramount in any surgical procedure, and liposuction is no exception. We address important safety measures, including patient eligibility and anesthesia options. Through a focus on safety, patients can approach liposuction with confidence and peace of mind.
