What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery option for both men and women that smooths and contours problem areas that won't respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but rather helps to reshape and contour areas that have not responded to diet and exercise.

Indications for liposuction

Patients who are near their ideal weight but have localized fat deposits are ideal candidates for liposuction. Many areas can be treated including the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and chin. Ideal candidates have good skin elasticity and muscle tone. 


Liposuction is performed through small incisions that, whenever possible, are placed in well-hidden areas of the body. A narrow bunted tip tube, also known as a cannula, is inserted to dislodge the fatty deposits and suction excess fat. Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that can be combined with or without excision of excess skin.

Postoperative Recovery Phase

The postoperative recovery varies for each individual patient. It is important to provide compression to the treated area for at least one month postoperative. Some bruising and swelling is normal for the first several weeks after the procedure; sometimes it may take several months to fully resolve and for the newly-shaped contour to develop.​
