What is Body Liposuction?

Laser and ultrasound assisted liposuction, like traditional liposuction, aren’t a weight control method or a fix for obesity. They are used to help contour your body in those areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise such as saddlebags or a paunchy stomach. Also like traditional liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction is most often used to reduce fullness in your:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Waist

Candidates for Body Liposuction

You may be a good candidate for body liposuction if:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You currently follow a healthy lifestyle (diet and exercise)
  • You’ve been unable to lose fat in key areas of your body
  • You have good skin laxity

How Does It Work?

Body liposuction is performed by a plastic surgeon who will use either laser-assisted liposuction or traditional liposuction techniques to remove stubborn fat from the desired area of the body. The procedure is performed by making a small incision in the desired treatment area. A microscopic cannula is fed through the incision to the fat layers; depending on the type of liposuction you opt for, your plastic surgeon will use the cannula to break up fat via laser heat energy or manual exertion. The fat is then drained through the cannula, at which point the incision is closed.


Liposuction results can be seen within three to four months, as this allows the swelling from the procedure to dissipate. Your results should be consistent over a long period of time, provided you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle regimen without weight fluctuations.

Liposuction recovery is relatively quick; most patients are able to go back to their jobs within 4-5 days after surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment to help keep swelling down, as well as help your body maintain its new shape. You should be able to go back to your normal exercise routine within three to four weeks.
