About Liposuction

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or body contouring surgery, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from challenging areas of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction should not be considered as a form of weight loss. Dr. Aisha McKnight-Baron, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in Marietta, GA considers patients who are already in good health, but need assistance toning trouble areas as good candidates for this procedure. Liposuction can also be used to contour and add definition to the body and it may be used with other surgical techniques to better meet aesthetic goals. With today's advanced liposuction, achieving your dream body has never been easier. Whether you want to look better in a swimsuit or have a more proportioned body, liposuction can be used to treat a number of different needs.

Best Candidates

Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and even the neck. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are in good health and experience:

  • Excess fat deposits that cannot be altered with diet and exercise.
  • Disproportionate areas of the body.
  • Good skin elasticity.

What to Expect

Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, one or more small incisions will be made near the treatment site. A thin tube (cannula) is then inserted through the incision to loosen the excess fat, then suctioned out. The length of this procedure varies among patients, but it typically takes between 1-3 hours to complete. Following their procedure, patients should wear a compression garments for the first few weeks to reduce swelling and ensure optimal healing. Patients can expect minimal scarring at the incision site, but with proper scar management, it will be difficult to notice. In order for the results of liposuction to last, the patient should maintain a stable weight through a healthy diet and exercise.
