Liposuction

Liposuction, sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion.

 

What liposuction can treat

  • Thighs

  • Hips and buttocks

  • Abdomen and waist

  • Upper arms

  • Back

  • Inner knee

  • Chest area

  • Cheeks, chin and neck

  • Calves and ankles

Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a faceliftbreast reduction or a tummy tuck.

What liposuction can't do

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite—the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks—or loose saggy skin.

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

 

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

In general, good candidates for a liposuction include:

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing

  • Nonsmokers

  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring

 

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits located anywhere on your body that don't respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.
