What is Liposuction?

Through small holes, the excess fat is removed from various parts of the abdomen, back, arms, or thighs to improve the contour of those areas. At times ultrasound may be used to further break down the fat and ease its removal (UAL/ultrasound assisted liposuction).

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures currently being performed. A liposuction procedure is an excellent way to remove excess fat cells from certain areas of the body to sculpt and improve body contours. It shapes and sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas around the:

Liposuction, also known by the colloquial term "lipo," involves the removal of excess fat through a minimally invasive procedure. As the most common plastic surgery procedure administered in the United States, liposuction is performed on hundreds of thousands of patients each year. By safely drawing fat out of your  "problem areas," our plastic surgeon in Coral Gables can artfully re-contour fatty parts of the body with quick precision. A liposuction can be performed on its own, or it can be used in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck, facelift, or breast reduction.


What to expect during a liposuction procedure in Coral Gables?

Liposuction is performed under local or general anesthesia, to ensure treatment is comfortable and pain-free. After making a minor incision, a surgical vacuum or syringe that is attached to a cannula targets and withdraws excess concentrations of fat lying between the skin and muscle layers. With a liposuction procedure, we can remove stubborn fat from many different areas of the body to produce a more sculpted and thinner looking physique. When used with facial plastic surgery procedures, liposuction can help to slim and refine the appearance of the jawline, chin, and upper neck.

At your cosmetic surgery consultation in Coral Gables, we’ll discuss your areas of concern and determine which type of liposuction procedure is best suited to achieve your aesthetic goals.
