What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic weight loss surgical procedure to remove localized pockets of excess body fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.

Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

A person who has already attempted diet and exercise but have problem areas of excess fat in specific areas, such as hips and buttocks, thighs, inner knee, back, abdomen, upper arms, cheeks, jowls, breast/chest area, and waist. Ideally, the liposuction candidate should be within the normal weight range and be physically and psychologically healthy.

What Types of Liposuction Surgery are Available?

Methods of liposuction include:
Ultrasonic Liposuction
Tumescent Liposuction
Superwet Liposuction

Is Liposuction Safe?

All surgery carries risks and liposuction is no different, but the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons has recognized liposuction as a safe and effective method of removing localized fat areas.

What are the Possible Health Complications of Liposuction?

The most common health risks of liposuction include infection, allergic reactions to anesthesia or to medications, friction burns, organ damage, fluid accumulation, blood clots, excessive fluid loss, and long healing time. The amount of fat being removed can increase the risk of liposuction because more fat will take longer to operate on.

Does Recovery from Liposuction Surgery Take Long?

No. Liposuction patients are able to move around within a 24-hour period following the surgical procedure. When large amounts of fat are removed a slightly longer recovery period may be necessary. Liposuction recovery will vary depending on individual factors and surgical complications.

Does Liposuction Surgery Leave Scars?

Scars are a normal occurrence when incisions have been made. Liposuction is no different since it involves incisions, however the surgeon will carefully treat and place incisions in areas that are better concealed or in creases. Over time the scars from liposuction will begin to fade until they are hardly noticeable. There will always be a hint of a scar remaining after liposuction.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Liposuction is considered a cosmetic surgical procedure and is not typically covered by insurance. Typically, liposuction will cost an individual between $5,000- $10,000, but your liposuction surgeon will have a more specific idea of the liposuction cost after a consultation. On average, liposuction in the U.S. costs $2,000 per body area treated.
