Liposuction, commonly known as liposculpture, involves removing unwanted subcutaneous fat while simultaneously recontouring to create a more aesthetically appealing body. While not a treatment for obesity, liposuction- liposculpture selectively removes persistent and unwanted subcutaneous fat.
Bothersome fatty deposits are found in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the face, neck, breast, abdomen, upper arm, hips, thighs, knees, and ankles. Liposuction-liposculpture can be performed on multiple areas at one time – your surgeon will follow accepted guidelines regarding safe volumes which may be removed in one session.

Liposuction is a minimally-invasive technique that will give you the results you want quickly and conveniently.
Liposuction is a body contouring technique that helps men and women look and feel their best. While goals include size improvement, this procedure is not for weight loss. Final results may not be evident for 6 months following your procedure. During this time your body balances fluids and the skin and remodels underlying tissues. Final results also depend on proper nutrition, exercise and decreasing your caloric intake. While recovery is easy, you should expect some initial drainage along with swelling, bruising and discomfort. Your compression garment will minimize the swelling, bruising, discomfort and assist in the retraction of any loose skin. The incisions are small and heal with minimal scars. Patients may be placed in a special support (compression) garment at the end of the procedure.
There are many advantages to lipo surgery! This procedure will help slim down bulges of fat and contour areas all over your body. Liposuction can treat areas such as the legs, abdomen, love handles, back, and arms.

- Liposuction-liposculpture is usually performed under local or conscious sedation, in an approved outpatient facility.
- The incisions are small and heal with minimal scars.
- Patients may be placed in a special support (compression) garment at the end of the procedure.
Small incisions are made in hair bearing areas or natural skin folds. A special tumescent solution is next placed within the fatty areas to be removed. This solution provides anesthesia to the areas, while limiting the usual blood loss. Fat is then carefully removed from the areas of concern to the patient using a surgical instrument called a cannula, which is attached with tubing to a suction machine.
The time for completion of the procedure depends upon the total amount of fatty tissue removed. At the end of the procedure, the skin openings may be sutured or left open to heal, depending on the size of the openings. The patient may be placed in a compression garment that is worn for a certain amount of time afterward.

How much can you lose with liposuction?
You can lose a few pounds with liposuction but it is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Liposuction will help contour your body and make areas slim by depleting fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer beneath your skin. This layer of fat is very difficult to remove with workouts. Your body stores fat in this area as last resort energy. Exercise hardly has an effect on this stubborn fat. Liposuction, however, can quickly remove this fat and show off the underlying contours and muscles. This procedure is perfect for healthy men and women who are active and within their ideal weight range. Liposuction can help you achieve a slim, toned body in no time!
