Liposuction Q&A

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat from your body. The process uses carefully controlled suction to lift and remove fat cells, creating a more streamlined look in the treatment area. 

Some of the areas where liposuction yields outstanding results include:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Beneath the chin

Liposuction offers the chance to remove a significant portion of unwanted fat or to make subtle alterations to address problem areas and refine contouring. It only takes a few small incisions to access the targeted area and remove fat through a medical tube called a cannula. 

Liposuction can be done using local anesthetic. You’ll be awake throughout the procedure but won’t feel any pain. 

Modern techniques incorporate liquid into the process to help remove fat without significant tissue trauma, and laser technology also helps by liquifying the targeted fat. These techniques provide safer, more consistent results and make a recovery far easier to manage than the approach used in decades past. 

Are liposuction results permanent?

Once liposuction removes fat cells from your body, those cells are gone forever and will not rejuvenate. That said, the remaining fat cells can still expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat.

If you gain a considerable amount of weight after having liposuction, your results can be altered. That’s why liposuction is best suited for men and women who’ve reached and can maintain a stable, healthy weight. 

How can Renuvion® skin-tightening enhance my liposuction results?

If you’ve had liposuction to remove unwanted fat in the area beneath your chin, you may still have sagging or loose skin in that area. Renuvion® uses a handheld wand to deliver radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to this area. 

That energy forces the tissue to contract and tighten, and you’ll see those results shortly after your procedure. Even better, treatments prompt your body to create new collagen, which further tightens and smooths your skin.
