Liposuction in Atlanta

Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits via small incisions in the area to be treated. This improves body contours and proportions.

Liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting with mild sedation (if treating small areas) or under general anesthesia. If combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be necessary.

Candidates for Liposuction

Good candidates for liposuction have specific areas of excess fat that are difficult to lose even after weight loss and with regular exercise. These areas can include many areas of the body such as the abdomen, the flanks (love handles), buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, and neck. It can also be used to treat gynecomastia (enlarged breasts) in men.

Do the Doctors Offer Lipo 360?

Yes, both Dr. Abboushi & Dr. Singh perform lipo 360 -- also known as circumferential liposuction -- procedures for patients who wish to address multiple areas around their midsection at the same time. This can include waist, flanks, stomach & back. Many patients who elect liposuction 360 surgery also choose to undergo a tummy tuck, circumferential abdominoplasty or an extended tummy tuck to maximize their results.

Is Large-Volume Liposuction Available?

Yes, high-volume/large-volume lipo is available as are plus-size tummy tucks. There is no set BMI limit; however, patients must be in excellent physical health and receive medical clearance from their primary care physician prior to undergoing surgery.

Liposuction Recovery

After the procedure, compression garments are recommended to help with healing and to reduce swelling. You may return to work one or two days following the procedure. Bruising often takes several weeks to resolve. Depending on the area treated, it is not unusual for it to take several months for all swelling to recede and for full results to be revealed.
