Liposuction, one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, ankles, face, neck, chest, and arms. The procedure is done under local or general anesthesia through tiny, hidden incisions about ¼ inch long. We use a variety of techniques in liposuction including tumescent liposuction, suction assisted liposuction, ultrasonic assisted liposuction, and laser liposuction.
Liposuction is most successful for people who have good skin tone and localized or generalized fatty deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. We caution all patients that liposuction is not a treatment for weight reduction.
Recovery is quick and most patients are back to work in a week to ten days.
