Is Liposuction for Me?

Liposuction is generally most effective for people who are at a stable weight but who may have localized fat deposits that do not improve with healthy eating habits or adequate physical activity. Those who wish to avoid surgery or those who have smaller, more localized areas of fat may be better matches for CoolSculpting®. Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss and not often recommended for people who have a considerable amount of weight to lose.

During Your Procedure

This procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. A local anesthetic is first placed into the treatment area and appropriate size cannulas are placed through small incisions for removal of excess fat.

Healing after Surgery

Although the total recovery period depends on the amount of fat removed, most people can return to work in 3 to 4 days.

A Complete Makeover

Because liposuction does not tighten the skin, people who have excess skin and/or loose underlying muscle tissue often benefit from an additional contouring procedure such as a tummy tuck or a buttock-thigh lift. Additionally, liposuction is commonly included in a mommy makeover for women who want to address physical changes caused by pregnancy and childbirth.

You May Also Need to Know

Dr. Hubbard uses only the safest liposuction techniques. Laser liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction are categorized as "destructive techniques" because the high energy emitted from these lasers damages nerves and blood vessels and can cause burns to the skin as well. Traditional liposuction and power-assisted liposuction (PAL) are not destructive to nerves and blood vessels, therefore making these techniques safer for the patient.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Some patients are candidates for PAL, which has been proven less traumatic to surrounding tissues. It is new technology that relies on vibration of the tip of the cannula to facilitate fat removal. PAL has been proven to have increased safety, decreased surgery time, and achieved greater fat removal from the treated areas compared to other forms of liposuction. Ultrasonic liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction are both less effective and have more complications.
