What is Liposuction:

Liposuction is a surgical procedure targeting specific areas of the body, breaking up and permanently removing fat cells. This results in a transformative change, refining the body's shape for a leaner and more streamlined appearance in the chosen areas. It is important to note that liposuction is not intended for weight loss; weight management should be addressed through diet, exercise, or specialized weight loss surgical procedures.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

More than anything, the best candidates have common aesthetic concerns that can be resolved from lipo. Remember, liposuction surgery does not solve weight problems or the appearance of cellulite. However, both can be positively affected by this procedure.

Not everyone should undergo lipo. The best candidates have the following characteristics:

  • They are at a healthy weight that can be sustained
  • They have realistic goals for contouring their body.
  • Diets and exercise have been unable to get rid of the fat
  • They don't smoke

Can I Combine Liposuction with Other Procedures?

An advantageous aspect of undergoing liposuction is the ability to combine it with various other procedures, maximizing your overall results. Procedures that can be combined with liposuction include:

  • The Mommy Makeover: This term broadly encompasses several procedures consolidated into a single session, commonly sought after pregnancy-induced changes to the body. Mommy Makeovers may involve additional enhancements such as tummy tucks, breast augmentation, and butt lifts.
  • Abdominoplasty: Often called a tummy tuck, this procedure is frequently performed with liposuction. Liposuction is employed to extract fat from the abdomen, while the tummy tuck focuses on removing excess skin and repairing abdominal muscles. The combined effect results in a slender and firmer abdomen. It's important to note that there is no "Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck" dilemma, as they serve different purposes. Instead, liposuction complements the outcomes of a tummy tuck by addressing fat removal in the targeted area.
  • Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation: Liposuction can be utilized by extracting fat from a designated area and subsequently injecting it into the breasts for augmentation. This process, known as fat transfer breast augmentation, not only trims the chosen area but also enhances the size of your bust.
  • Butt Lifts: Likewise, liposuction can be employed to remove fat from one body area and then injected into the buttocks for reshaping. This mirrors the concept of fat transfer breast augmentation, where slimming occurs in one area while enhancing another—in this instance, the buttocks.

What is the Difference Between Liposuction and Weight Loss Surgery?

The primary distinction between liposuction and weight loss surgery lies in their purposes. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates existing fat cells but doesn't prevent their potential return. Essentially, liposuction alters the contours of your body by suctioning out fat.

In contrast, weight loss surgery is intended to restrict food intake by reducing stomach size. Approval for this surgery involves a lifestyle change, and the process entails several steps.

Where do I begin my Liposuction Procedure?

A personal consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons is the first step for anyone considering liposuction. During this meeting, one of our surgeons will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific goals for surgery.

They will explain the body contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you. Suggestions for other procedures may also be discussed. Liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss or a substitute for diet and exercise. It also does not treat cellulite or loose, saggy skin. We will work with you to recommend the procedure that is right for you and will come closest to producing the desired body contour.

Liposuction should be done for you and no one else. Liposuction may be a good option if:

  • You are bothered by fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
  • You are within 30% of your ideal weight.
  • You are a non-smoker.
  • You do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that could impair healing.
  • You have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone.
  • You have specific, realistic goals and a positive outlook.
