Liposuction is the most proven and effective medical procedure to immediately remove unwanted fat. Men and women of nearly all ages can be candidates for liposuction. Appropriate candidates for liposuction must be in good health and should be near ideal body weight.
Liposuction is not a weight reduction procedure, so those with many extra pounds should pursue diet and exercise as a first approach. Our liposuction cases are performed with the Body-Jet liposuction system. The Body-Jet liposuction machine provides a very gentle and safe approach to liposuction. With this gentle approach, patients generally have less discomfort during and after surgery and less down time after surgery.
Breast and Body Augmentation with Body Jet Fat
For those women who have said for years: “If only I could take some fat from my tummy or thighs and put it in my breasts.” Now it is possible!
The Body-Jet is a unique tool for fat transfer surgery. Since the Body-Jet suction technique is so gentle, the fat cells are nicely preserved and are excellent for enhancing other areas of the body. The fat cells are simply suctioned away, filtered, placed in syringes and meticulously injected into the desired area for augmentation. This introduces exciting possibilities for enhancing the breasts, buttocks and face with your own tissue.
Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
We often perform liposuction in concert with other body-contouring procedures. Liposuction is often used during abdominoplasty surgery to sculpt the immediate surrounding areas, including the flanks. In addition, some patients who undergo a tummy tuck wish to have their thighs and/or arms sculpted with liposuction during the same surgery.
Liposuction and Breast Reduction Surgery
We often use liposuction as an added procedure during breast reduction surgery. Sometimes during a breast reduction some extra fat is removed directly from the breast with liposuction. Also, liposuction can be used to contour the side of the breast and the side of the chest during breast reduction surgery.
Liposuction and Facial Rejuvenation Surgery
Facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift or chin augmentation are often enhanced with the use of liposuction. Liposuction under chin and neck area is a common procedure for neck sculpting.
