What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that traditionally uses suction through a cannula to remove localized, stubborn fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Our surgeons use modern methods for precision sculpting, enhancing your body’s natural shape and proportions. Liposuction can be used in various areas, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and more, allowing patients to achieve a more streamlined silhouette. While not a substitute for weight loss, liposuction is a popular choice for individuals seeking a more sculpted appearance.

Your Liposuction Procedure

The liposuction process typically begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the procedure. The surgeon then makes small incisions in the target areas, and a thin tube called a cannula is inserted. Using a back-and-forth motion, excess fat is carefully suctioned out to achieve the desired contours. Advanced techniques, such as power-assisted liposuction (PAL) or laser-assisted liposuction (LAL), may be employed for enhanced precision and reduced recovery times.

A Life Refined

Liposuction Recovery and Aftercare

Following the procedure, we give our patients post-operative instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery. While some initial swelling and bruising are expected, these effects gradually subside over the following weeks, revealing the improved contours. Liposuction candidates can anticipate visible results shortly after the procedure, with the final outcome becoming more apparent as the body fully heals. We offer ongoing guidance throughout the recovery process, offering the support and information to help our clients enjoy excellent results.
