Liposuction

Lipoplasty

Liposuction, sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body.

What results should I expect after liposuction?

The results of liposuction will be long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.

Liposuction Before and After Photos

It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop.

Your improved body contour will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary. It is not possible to improve lax skin tone with liposuction.
