Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and can be safely performed using local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or local anesthesia, depending on the nature of the procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the anesthesia method that is most appropriate for your needs.

The procedure starts with one or more small incisions near the treatment area. A cannula, or thin tube, is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat beneath the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned out. The entire procedure can take under an hour or up to 3 hours or longer, depending on the number of areas treated.

Liposuction surgery removes excess deposits of fat to sculpt an improved shape to a patient’s body. While liposuction is best known as a fat removal procedure, it is also one of the best procedures to help a patient refine his or her shape. 

The Lipo 360 is a revolutionary liposuction procedure that targets all areas of your midsection, including the abdominals, obliques and lower back. The result aime to a slimmer waistline with reduced volume in your abdomen as well as other parts of the body such as hips or thighs. 

A HD Lipo is a more artistic way of doing it. In New Life Plastic Surgery only Dr. JC Alvarez performs it. He accentuates some lines in the abdomen, creating a 3-dimensional shape. With this process, you can achieve more definition through your muscles and a better silhouette.

The liposuction procedure can smooths your body’s contours around the entire midsection to create an aesthetically sculpted look. Liposuction has been used safely over time, offering a solution for resistant fat deposits while also providing solutions that are more natural-looking and less invasive than other methods. A Brazilian But Lift is a combination of that liposuction procedure and a fat transfer to the buttock area. In a BBL doctors use the client’s own body fat extracted by the liposuction process. 

Sadly, fat can return after liposuction in some cases, but only if you let it come back though. The results may not be all that great if you gain weight after surgery. Positive results achieved with liposuction can be permanent, but only if a relatively healthy lifestyle is maintained after the procedure.

If liposuction is done right by a Board Certified Surgeon and the patient follows the post-op care, it is really uncommon that someone experiences sagging skin after their surgery. If any, loose skin almost always shrinks up totally in the months following the procedure. For achieving that, the patient must wear the post-op garment and follow every medical advice.

The technique for liposuction is minimally invasive, so the risk of scarring is consequently reduced. The size of scars depends on the incisions that are often really small and are kept to the absolute minimum. Over time, it can be reduced and almost not visible, depending on the healing process and skin type of each client.
