Who Should Consider Liposuction?

Good candidates for liposuction should be at a stable and healthy body weight that they have maintained for at least 3 months prior to surgery. Liposuction is not a weight loss alternative and should only be used to remove stubborn areas of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Because liposuction removes fat but does not tighten the overlying skin, the best candidates are people with a good degree of skin elasticity.

Liposuction is often combined with other cosmetic procedures such as abdominoplasty, which can be perfect for people concerned with sagging skin in addition to excess fatty deposits. Many women also include liposuction as part of their mommy makeover. Liposuction Techniques Liposuction can be performed using a range of customized approaches to bring out the best in each individual’s figure. Dr. Kim performs liposuction using a narrow tube called a cannula to suction unwanted fat cells from targeted areas of the body.

To perform liposuction, Dr. Kim begins with small incisions in and around the target area. Through these incisions, she inserts the cannula, which dispenses a tumescent fluid that breaks up fat cells as well as provides a numbing effect. Using the cannula, Dr. Kim can manually sculpt the target area into natural-looking, smoother contours that flatter your overall physique.

Liposuction is commonly performed in several areas:

  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Upper arms
  • Neck
