There are few things more annoying than eating right and working out hard, and still not seeing the body contour that you desire. Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure to permanently remove unwanted pockets of fat. Safe and extremely effective, liposuction works almost anywhere on the body, restoring a contour that has perhaps gotten out of balance. The most common target zones for men and women are the abdomen, hips and thighs. The end result of liposuction is a smoother, flatter and more sculpted you.

Does liposuction hurt?
The procedure itself is comfortable. Whether you choose to do it under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, you will not feel anything. Post op, most patients feel soreness - like a hard work-out. Obviously, the larger the target area, the more discomfort. Narcotics are provided but most patients are taking Tylenol within a few days. My team and I are here for you every step of the way. And we will do everything possible to make your liposuction experience as comfortable as possible.
Are there any liposuction risks?
There are inherent risks with any procedure especially if it involves anesthesia. But liposuction has been well studied and is an extremely safe procedure when performed by a surgeon with a lot of experience.
How much will liposuction cost?
Liposuction costs are going to vary depending on where you live, the size of the treatment area and who you see. My best advice would be to find the liposuction experts in your area and call around for quotes.
I hate Spanx. Is a compression garment really necessary?
Yes. You are going to want to wear the compression garment. It makes for a much more comfortable recovery. And a much faster one. If you are going to commit to improving your body contour, you need to commit to the recovery. It’s worth it.
I have a big tummy, but I also have some loose skin. Can I get away with liposuction or do I need a tummy tuck?
It’s impossible to say without seeing you in person. Most women who have had more than one child are probably going to be better served with a tummy tuck. However, now that I have BodyTite, it allows me to deliver pretty awesome results when combined with liposuction. The best advice that I can give you is to schedule a consultation to come in and see me so that we can discuss your options.
Does liposuction work to create a more defined jawline?
Yes. This is a favorite among my female and male patients. Not only is a crisp jawline more youthful looking, but everyone hates seeing that excess fat, especially in photos. But liposuction alone will only work in patients who have enough skin elasticity so that it can “bounce back”. If the excess fat is also combined with a lot of loose skin, you may be better served with a surgical neck lift or FaceTite. Conversely, if the fat is small and isolated to the area under the chin, an injectable like Kybella or Coolsculpting may be an option. The right choice for you is going to depend on your needs and tolerance for downtime. I take all of this into consideration when coming up with a treatment plan.
