Have you tried exercise and diet yet still can’t seem to lose weight in certain areas? Are you looking for an effective solution? Well, you are at the right place! Liposuction is one of our expert services, where we contour your body according to your needs. Our certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons can remove excess fat from your abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, chest, back, hips, thighs and more.

We understand that sometimes fat can be stubborn. No matter what exercises or diet you try, it just doesn’t shape your body the way you imagined. Liposuction decreases the number of fat cells in a certain area. This usually results in a permanent slimming effect.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of through diet and exercise. It uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body. One of our board-certified plastic surgeons usually does the procedure on the arms, back, belly, buttocks, face, hips, and thighs to improve their shape, but it can also be done with other surgeries such as facelifts, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. When you gain weight, the fat cells increase in size and volume; after liposuction, the skin molds itself into the new contours of the treated areas. Liposuction is also referred to as Lipoplasty, Liposulpture, Lipo, Suction Lipectomy, or Body Contouring.

Types of Liposuction

There are a few different types of Liposuction, but they all share a commonality: the use of a thin tube known as the cannula. The cannula is connected to a vacuum that suctions the fat from the body. The list below provides you with the most popular types of liposuction. During your consultation, you’ll be able to determine which type is best for you.

1. Tumescent Liposuction

This is the most common technique of liposuction. The surgeon injects a sterile solution into the area from where the fat is to be removed; it consists of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine. This solution makes it easier to suction the fat with less blood loss and pain.

2. Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction or UAL

This uses sound wave energy under your skin to rupture the cell walls of fat. The rupture of the cell walls liquefies the fat for suction.

3. Laser-Assisted Liposuction or Smart Lipo

This method uses a laser to produce a burst of energy to liquefy the fat for suction.

4. Power-Assisted Liposuction

This uses a cannula that moves back and forth rapidly. This vibration allows the surgeon to pull out more stubborn fat easier and faster. This can sometimes cause less pain and swelling, and allows the surgeon to remove the fat with more precision.

Risks of Liposuction

As with most cosmetic procedures, there are a number of possible risks and downsides to undergoing the liposuction procedure. We take pride in keeping our clients informed of the risks associated with each procedure you may be interested in undergoing in order to allow you to make an informed choice. All of our clients are encouraged to ask any questions about their procedure during the consultation. While our board-certified cosmetic and  plastic surgeons perform each operation with precision and care, the following side effects are sometimes a possibility.

There are several potential risks associated directly with liposuction that have to be considered, namely:

  • Bleeding
  • Complications from anesthesia
  • Shock
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Infection
  • Fat embolism
  • Uneven fat removal
  • Reactions to lidocaine
  • Numbness
  • Damage to nerves
  • Damage to blood vessels
  • Damage to muscles
  • Damage to the lungs
  • Damage to abdominal organs
  • Blood clots

Side effects of Liposuction

  • Body deformity
  • Seromas can form under the skin
  • Skin infections
  • Puncturing of internal organs
  • Fat obstructing arteries

What to know beforehand

The first step in the procedure is the consultation. At this point, you will meet with one of our board-certified cosmetic and  plastic surgeons and you should take the opportunity to talk about your goals, options, risks, and benefits. You should always feel free to ask as many questions as you need during this time. You’ll be asked to do tests to determine your health status, and you’ll be asked to provide your weight history.

Before the procedure, the surgeon will mark circles and lines on the areas of the body to be treated and photos may also be taken so before and after images can be compared. During these processes, we want you to be totally comfortable. We understand, especially for first timers, how nerve-wracking this can be. Relax, we are here to provide the information you need to make an informed and happy decision.

Will results be seen immediately?

You probably won’t see the results right after the procedure, and if anything you may feel as though you have gained weight or are looking larger in the areas that were treated. While liposuction can get rid of up to 10 pounds of fat during a procedure, fluid retention and swelling can cause you to look bloated. But as the swelling goes down, you will begin to see results. We ask that you are patient through your healing, follow instructions given by your doctor, and give yourself the best after-care (follow the guidelines the doctor gives you).

Are the results permanent?

The fat cells are removed permanently during liposuction but the weight can be regained with new fat cells that usually go to different areas of the body.

To keep the results after surgery, it is recommended that clients follow a diet that includes a lot of lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low fat dairy and regular exercise. Hence, the onus is on the client to follow through so that they can fat off in areas they don’t want it. Whenever you are not sure about something as it relates to diet or healing, consult your doctor so that they can provide the information you need.


  • Your doctor will advise you if and when you can restart your medication, and provide instructions on taking new ones.
  • If you take blood thinners, be sure to talk to your doctor. He or she will tell you when to start taking them.
  • If antibiotics are prescribed, take them as directed until the course is complete.
  • Take pain medication as directed, if none is prescribed, enquire as to whether you can take an over the counter drug.

Follow up care is a key part of treatment aftercare — be sure to make and go to follow up appointments and contact your doctor or nurse if you experience any problems. That’s a commitment you should never break.

Things to Note:

  • Liposuction is done on an individual basis as this is not for everyone. Generally, you are requiring to be in good health and free of conditions that could complicate surgery.
  • Though liposuction helps you remove fat, it is not an alternative to weight loss or a method of weight loss.
  • Healing time varies and depends on several elements such as the elasticity of your skin.
