Liposuction has proven to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures amongst women and men, ranking just after breast augmentation, and it’s really no surprise as to why. This customized procedure allows the surgeon to remove stubborn fat deposits from multiple areas, while smoothing the contours of the body. Originating from Italy in 1974, the procedure has subsequently been perfected using the tumescent-method since 1985, and has since been approved for treatment of the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, knees, arms, neck, chest, and calves. After several small incisions are made in the concerning area, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted into the incisions to dislodge fat using a back and forth motion. The extracted fat is then suctioned out using a surgical vacuum. Although we recommend our patients wear a compression garment for about 4 weeks, recovery time is fairly brief and patients are able to return to work in a few days. Our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons have performed over 1500 liposuction procedures throughout their careers, and welcome you to begin the conversation on how we can help you achieve your aesthetic goals!
