Tumescent Liposuction

This is the most common type of suction performed. Fluid is injected into the fat to minimize bleeding, then the fat is removed with suction cannulas.

VASER Liposuction (Ultrasonic)

Ultrasonic heat breaks down the fat and also can provide skin tightening when needed. New and advanced liposuction method.

Laser Liposuction (Smart Lipo)

Removes fat and provides heat through a laser. Same results as VASER and ultrasonic liposuction.

Our Vision for Liposuction

Our goal is to provide superior results while not compromising on patient safety, comfort and experience. While we cannot guarantee that every patient will have the perfect experience, we strive to make that happen. Body contouring with liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to improve with dieting and exercise. The most important decision is choosing the surgeon. This determines your results more than the type of liposuction..

Local Anesthesia

For those patients who have reservations about being "put to sleep" or have small areas that need to be treated. Medication can be taken to help you relax during the procedure.

IV Sedation | Twilight Anesthesia

Requires placement of an IV and some blood work. You are given medication so that you are comfortable, gently fall asleep and have minimal to no recollection of the procedure.

General Anesthesia

An anesthesiologist will provide complete general anesthesia to put you to sleep. For larger areas of liposuction. Potential for improved results.

FAQ  |   Do I need more than liposuction?

1

Liposuction Only

For those patients with minimal or no excess skin and no muscle separation. Mainly just excess fat

2

Mini-tuck or Limited incision

For those patients with excess skin and/ and or muscle separation but mild excess skin mainly below the belly button. Maybe need some liposuction at the same time

3

Full Tummy Tuck

For those patients with moderate to severe excess skin above and below the belly button. May need liposuction as part of the procedure

FAQ  |   How many inches can I lose?

*

Abdomen and Love Handles

Liposuction of these areas can significantly reduce your waistline circumference. The number of inches lost depends on how much excess fat you currently have.  We often have patients lose 3-5 inches.
