Liposuction Overview

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that can help patients address stubborn fat and body contouring concerns. Liposuction utilizes a small cannula to a suction device, which is used to remove excess fat from specific locations on the body. Patients can be confident that their individual needs are taken into account and that the liposuction process is tailored to their individual goals with Dr. Stan. Liposuction can provide excellent results, with minimal downtime and long-lasting effects. At Dr. Stan Plastic Surgery, we perform liposuction with a high level of care and individualized attention to ensure maximum safety and satisfaction to reach your aesthetic goals.

What is involved with a liposuction procedure?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from specific areas of the body. During the procedure, small incisions are made in the skin and a cannula (small tube) is inserted to suction out excess fatty tissues. Local anesthesia or general anesthesia may be used depending on the scope of treatment. Tumescent fluid, consisting of saline solution, anesthetic and epinephrine, may also be injected into the area to reduce bleeding and help loosen up adipose tissue for easier removal. Some liposuction techniques also involve laser energy or ultrasound to liquefy fat before being removed with a cannula. After completion of liposuction, compression garments may be worn to help reduce swelling and aid in healing. The results of liposuction are considered long-lasting, provided weight is maintained through proper diet and exercise.

Liposuction can be used on a variety of body areas for both men and women. Common treatment areas include the thighs, abdomen, neck, chin/jawline and arms. Some people also choose to have liposuction on their back or buttocks. Your unique needs will be addressed during your consultation to determine which approach is best for you and create a tailored plan to achieve your desired outcome.

Liposuction Techniques and Cellulite Treatment

At Dr. Stan Plastic Surgery, we offer the latest advances in liposuction techniques. Lipo 360 and J-plasma are two of our most popular procedures that can help you achieve a contoured look with minimal downtime. Many of the liposuction techniques can be combined to achieve superior results.

Lipo 360

Lipo 360 is a high-definition liposuction technique that allows for precision body sculpting targeting multiple areas on the body in order to create an overall slimmer look. Lipo 360 utilizes multiple small incisions to target fat around different areas of your body to create a smooth, curved silhouette. This method requires more incisions than traditional liposuction and also requires general anesthesia.


J-plasma, also known as Renuvion, is an advanced skin tightening procedure created specifically to deliver optimal results with minimized recovery time. It uses radiofrequency energy combined with helium gas to precisely heat and tighten tissue, resulting in a more sculpted look. J-plasma is often combined with Lipo 360 for the most optimal results.

Avéli Cellulite Treatment

Avéli is a revolutionary device and procedure designed to reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite. Using advanced technology, Avéli targets cellulite-causing septa bands from within, providing long-lasting reduction in dimples on the buttocks and thighs. Unlike other cellulite treatments that only provide temporary results, Avéli offers long-term smoothness and firmness in the buttocks and thighs, regardless of the complexity of the cellulite. Experience the no-nonsense approach to treating cellulite dimples with Avéli. Learn More about Avéli Cellulite Treatment.

Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction techniques use laser and ultrasound technology to safely remove stubborn fat cells from areas like the thighs, hips, buttocks, and arms. This method is ideal for those who need more dramatic results with less downtime. Using a powerful device, we can break down fat cells quickly and efficiently while preserving important structures such as nerves and blood vessels.

What is the recovery for Liposuction?

At Dr. Stan Plastic Surgery, we care about providing individualized care to every patient. That is why our recovery process for liposuction is tailored to each person’s needs and health status. Generally speaking, patients can expect some degree of discomfort during the first few days after the procedure. You will be given pain medication to help manage any swelling or soreness in the treated area. We may also recommend wearing a compression garment during your recovery period, which helps reduce those discomforts and encourages tight skin contouring in the affected areas. Depending on how much fat was removed, you should plan for 2-4 weeks of light activity before returning to more strenuous activities such as running or weightlifting. Additionally, it is important to keep up with your care instructions and follow-up visits in order to ensure a successful recovery. Our team will provide thorough information regarding care throughout the entire process. By taking an individualized approach, we are devoted to helping you achieve naturally beautiful results.

We look forward to helping you achieve your desired outcome!

Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?

Good candidates for liposuction include people who care about their body image, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations for the procedure. People with localized fat deposits that don’t respond to exercise or dieting may be particularly well suited. It is important to note that liposuction should not be considered a weight loss solution and therefore individuals should maintain a near-normal weight prior to surgery. Dr. Stan takes an individualized approach when considering potential candidates for liposuction, taking into account each individual's medical history and aesthetic goals to ensure optimal results. During your consultation, we will discuss if you're a good candidate for this form of cosmetic surgery and help you determine if it is the right choice for you.
