Patients looking to remove fat from specific parts of their body can find the benefits they’re looking for through liposuction. However, liposuction should only be used as a method to remove fat, not to lose weight. This procedure is most beneficial for those who are a stable weight looking to remove fat in an area that is disproportionate to the rest of your body.

Areas It Can Be Performed

As a cosmetic procedure, liposuction can be done to various parts of the body. If you’re looking to have fat removed, we can perform this procedure on any of the following areas:

  • Upper arms.
  • Abdomen.
  • Neck.
  • Calves.
  • Ankles.
  • Buttocks.
  • Chest.
  • Back.

What To Expect

During this procedure, our plastic surgeon can either administer local anesthesia to the area being operated on or general anesthesia to put you completely under. This decision will vary on a patient to patient basis. Depending on the amount of fat being removed, the procedure can last up to several hours. After the liposuction is complete, expect to experience the following:

  • Pain.
  • Swelling.
  • Bruising.

The Results

It normally takes a few weeks for the swelling in the area that underwent liposuction to subside. Once it does, you’ll see the area has become less bulky. Over the next few months, you’ll notice the area becoming leaner as well.
