If you’re looking for an effective way to reshape, sculpt or reduce more noticeable areas of fat on your body, liposuction can help you get there. Liposuction smoothes and sculpts your figure to eliminate the problem areas that may remain behind even if you eat right and stay active. Along with my supportive staff, I am committed to helping you look good and feel great about your body.

Liposuction & Body Contouring Alternatives
These days, there are many different fat reduction methods such as Smartlipo®, CoolSculpting® and Zerona® in addition to traditional liposuction. Some of my patients have heard that these branded procedures are as effective as traditional liposuction techniques. In my experience, it is important to understand the limitations of these newer technologies and focus primarily on the quality of results.
I have found that traditional or power-assisted liposuction techniques offer my patients safe, predictable treatment for small to large areas of unwanted fat. I trust these techniques to help me achieve excellent results for patients who want to slim down areas of excess fat.
Although liposuction does permanently remove fat cells, it’s important to keep in mind that it is not a solution for weight loss. Instead, liposuction is ideal for smoothing away those isolated problem areas that may look disproportionate to the rest of your body; areas that remain notoriously resistant to diet and exercise, like the thighs, “love handles” or “muffin top.”
It is very common to combine liposuction with other body and breast enhancements, including abdominoplasty, breast augmentation or a breast reduction. I can also use liposuction to remove unwanted fat on the face and neck.
I perform traditional tumescent liposuction and power-assisted liposuction. Both procedures begin with several very small incisions near the target area, each one typically shorter than the width of a pencil eraser. I carefully place incisions in an inconspicuous area, and with proper care the incisions should be very inconspicuous when healed.
Through these access points, I saturate the area with a sterile saline tumescent solution. This helps break apart the fat cells for easier, more comfortable removal. Next, I use a cannula—a hollow surgical tube—to separate the fatty deposits. This is done solely by hand in traditional liposuction, while power-assisted liposuction uses a special mechanized cannula that vibrates very rapidly to help me loosen the cells. Finally, the fat is removed with gentle suction, creating a smoother, more sculpted shape.
Following liposuction, you’ll be asked to wear a special compression garment to help your body conform to its new contours. You’ll also be provided with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure that your healing goes as smoothly as possible.
