Liposuction is designed to remove the stubborn fat that builds up in different areas of your body, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. Liposuction can flatten the abdomen, reduce the buttocks, thighs and hips, slim the waist, trim love handles, and reduce fat bulges of the arms, neck and knees. Liposuction is also used in men to reduce excess tissue in the chest.
Recontour areas such as the buttocks, belly, or thighs
Smooth out “bra rolls,” “saddlebags,” and other stubborn areas
Correct problem areas resulting from weight loss, pregnancy or genetics
Emphasize a tighter, firmer, and more flattering body shape
Liposuction is most commonly performed as an outpatient procedure, although an overnight stay may be required when combined with other procedures, or if large volumes of fat are removed.
Liposuction is commonly performed with mild sedation and local anesthesia infused into the treatment area. When combined with other procedures, general anesthesia may be recommended. Recovery is generally quick and depends on the extent of the procedure. Bruising may take up to a week or longer to resolve and the majority of the swelling is gone within 4-6 weeks.
Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain or pregnancy may alter your appearance.
