Liposuction can be performed using local or general anesthesia. During your consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss the best anesthesia option based on your needs and goals for the procedure.
Patients can choose which areas of their body they wish to treat.
Liposuction is commonly performed on the:
A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help you determine what areas of your body to treat.
At the beginning of the procedure, a tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area. This solution constricts the patient’s blood vessels and expands the fat cells while also providing pain relief. This tumescent technique reduces bruising and swelling, allows for better body contouring results, and reduces recovery time.
During the liposuction procedure, your surgeon will insert a hollow, straw-like tool called a cannula through small incisions in your desired treatment area.
The cannula is then connected to a suction device, which your surgeon uses to siphon fat cells out of your body. The process completely removes the excess fat deposits, smoothing any unsightly bumps or bulges.
