Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that Dr. Brauman uses to permanently remove fat cells from your body, allowing you to effectively reshape your body’s contours, achieve those last lingering aesthetic goals, and feel great about your body.

Liposuction is effective for removing fat from many areas of the body, including your:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Calves
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Chin

Liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in the United States, and for good reason. This procedure offers excellent results by addressing stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

How much fat can be removed through liposuction?

There is no hard-and-fast rule concerning the amount of fat that can be removed during liposuction. Your body is unique, and your results depend on the areas where your treatment is focused and your surrounding contours.

The procedure is less about how much fat is removed and more about the target areas. For example, achieving an optimal distribution of fat cells across your lower abdomen might involve targeting the cells in your lower belly and also removing a small portion of fat along your sides and near the top of your hips.  

Working with a highly skilled surgeon is the best way to achieve optimal results. Liposuction and plastic surgery are as much of an art as a science. Dr. Brauman has the experience to evaluate your distribution of fat cells and determine where to make adjustments to create the best possible outcome.

Is liposuction safe?

If you’re in good overall health, liposuction offers a chance to reshape your body. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Brauman discusses your overall health and your specific aesthetic goals.

Liposuction is not a good fit for everyone. If you have the following conditions, he may suggest other ways to help you reach your goals:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes
  • Immunodeficiencies
  • Circulatory problems

This procedure carries a risk of side effects, including numbness, infection, scarring, and uneven skin texture, as well as risks associated with the anesthesia.

If you have questions or concerns, schedule an appointment with Dr. Brauman and explore your available options.
