  • Abdomen and Waist
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Hips and Buttocks
  • Upper Arms
  • Cheeks, Jowls, and Neck
  • Inner Knees

Most surgeons use several liposuction techniques to achieve the best results. -Tumescent liposuction is the technique used by most plastic surgeons.

The PAL method, power-assisted lipo, uses a cannula that can easily move through tissue, minimizing the impact on surrounding tissues, allowing for easier healing Ultrasonic liposuction allows for extremely precise fat removal because the tip of the cannula in this procedure emits ultrasonic energy that liquefies the fat making it easier to remove.

Liposuction can be done on multiple areas during the same procedure. Patients should expect some bruising and swelling which will gradually abate during recovery. Healing time is different with every individual and the number of areas treated, but most patients start to see results in about 3 weeks with continued improvement as the body completes its natural healing process.
