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. Modern Surgical Arts of Denver in Denver, CO, is proud to offer state-of-the-art liposuction services to our valued clients. Our providers, Dr. Kamran Dastoury and Dr. Paul Zwiebel, are dedicated to helping you achieve your desired body shape. At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver, we prefer using liposuction because it is a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted fat that has not responded to diet and exercise.
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. We usually perform 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, Liposculpture, Lipo, Suction Lipectomy, or Body Contouring.
Benefits of Liposuction
Improved Body Contours
One of the primary benefits of liposuction is the improvement in body contours. By removing excess fat from targeted areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, or neck, liposuction helps in creating a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing body shape.
Once the fat cells are removed during a liposuction procedure, they do not regenerate. This means that the results of liposuction are long-lasting, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Compared to other surgical procedures, the liposuction recovery period is relatively short. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
The incisions made during liposuction are small and strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. Over time, these scars fade and become less noticeable.
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.
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.
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.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction, or Smart Lipo
This method uses a laser to produce a burst of energy to liquefy the fat for suction.
This uses a cannula that moves back and forth rapidly. This vibration allows the surgeon to pull out more stubborn fat more easily and faster. This can sometimes cause less pain and swelling and allows the surgeon to remove the fat with more precision.

- Highest level of technology for liposuction (Lipo-sculpting, body contouring, 4D etching)
- Combination liposuction with skin tightening (J-Plasma or VASER or Thermi-Tight technology)

For example, abdominal liposuction can be performed in a more advanced manner by strategically removing fat from different layers of the abdomen, revealing the underlying anatomy and muscle structure. Also, the abdominal skin can be stimulated with advanced medical devices (Radiofrequency J-Plasma, Renuvion, VASER, Thermi-Tight) to achieve a firm look and avoid hanging skin after underlying fat removal.
Risks of Liposuction
As with most cosmetic procedures, there are several 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 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, side effects are sometimes a possibility.
Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction
Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
A good candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, has realistic expectations, and has stubborn fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss.
Can Liposuction Remove Cellulite?
Liposuction can remove fat deposits that contribute to cellulite, but it may not eliminate cellulite. The appearance of cellulite may be improved, but it is important to have realistic expectations about the results.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From Liposuction?
Liposuction recovery time varies from person to person, but most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure. It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
Can Liposuction Help With Weight Loss?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is designed to target and remove localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Can I Get Liposuction in Multiple Areas at Once?
It is possible to have liposuction on multiple areas during a single procedure. Your surgeon will discuss what is best for your specific situation.
