Liposuction can be used to reduce deposits of fat from the hips, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, abdomen, waist, breast, chest, calves, ankles, inner knee, neck, chin and cheeks. Liposuction reshapes and sculpts specific areas using a few different methods.

Although incisions are required to allow the cannula to enter for suctioning, they are so small that stitches are not even needed. Depending on the desired results, secondary procedures may be needed when a larger quantity of fat is being removed.

A tummy tuck is another very popular body contouring procedure. This returns a flatter, tighter and more desirable abdomen. Excess fat and skin are removed which can often restore separated or weakened muscles. If localized fat is the concern, abdominal contouring surgery is typically performed instead, using liposuction techniques. Incision patterns are carefully planned according to the patient’s needs to achieve optimal results.
