Why Get Liposuction?

Perhaps you have been exercising frequently, eating healthy foods, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Perhaps you are within 30% of your ideal weight gain and you have good muscle tone and firm elastic skin. Yet, no matter how hard you’ve tried, you still notice your “problem areas” that don’t seem to change. If this is your experience, then you may be an ideal candidate for lipo.

Benefits of Having Lipo

Please note that liposuction is not and shouldn't be used as an alternative to eating healthy and exercising regularly, but it can get rid of pockets of fat that have not dissipated with your healthy lifestyle choices. Areas commonly treated with this type of weight loss procedure include:

  • Abdomen
  • Butt
  • Cheeksocks
  • Chin
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Waist

Ideal Candidates

Liposuction is a surgical body contouring technique designed to remove localized fat deposits that are often resistant to diet or exercise. It is ideal for people who have been unable to achieve a slimmer body shape despite a healthy diet and exercise routine. This procedure should not be used as a weight loss method; however, it can remove unwanted pockets of fat from your body and thereby improve your figure. Lipo can address fat deposits in the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts, arms, back and neck.

Liposuction has the reputation of being an effective and minimally invasive method. In the lipo procedure, the South Florida cosmetic surgeon will insert a small tube (cannula) through very small incisions to loosen and remove excess fat.  When you choose one of the best plastic surgeons in Florida, you will note that not only will they remove the unwanted fat deposits, they will also improve your body’s proportion and contours.


This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Swelling and bruising is to be expected may obscure the final results of your liposuction procedure for several weeks. 

After surgery, the patient will wear compression garments for several weeks to compress the body to its new contours as well as minimize swelling. The recovery time depends on multiple factors such as concurrent procedures and the number of treatment sites. The patient should experience long-term results when engaging in a consistent program of healthy diet and exercise.
