Liposuction in Atlanta, GA

Liposuction Surgery & Surgical Procedures

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

Liposuction surgical procedures are 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, Drs. Abboushi and Dr. Singh perform lipo 360, also known as circumferential liposuction, for patients who wish to simultaneously address multiple areas around their midsection, including the waist, flanks, stomach, and back. Many patients who elect liposuction 360 surgery also undergo a tummy tuck, circumferential abdominoplasty, or an extended tummy tuck to maximize their results.

Panacea is a great place! The staff is so welcoming and always friendly and available to help. I have had three procedures done with Dr. Abboushi and what I love most about him is how personal he is with his patients and the fact that he’s always available if you have any questions or concerns. His main goal is to make sure you’re happy. I will recommend Panacea Plastic Surgery to all of my family and friends because I’ve always been treated like family by Dr. Abboushi and his staff and I love my results!

Is High-BMI Liposuction Available?

Yes, high-BMI and large-volume lipo, also called hourglass liposuction or high-volume liposuction, are available. This generally means removing five or more liters of fat at one time. This is sometimes referred to as mega liposuction, extreme liposuction, or aggressive liposuction. However, our doctors do not use these terms as they will never perform any type of surgery that isn't safe for the patient. As two of Atlanta's best board-certified plastic surgeons, that terminology implies a degree of risk with which they would not be comfortable.

There is no set BMI limit for overweight patients who wish to undergo these procedures; however, you must be in excellent physical health and receive medical clearance from your primary care physician before surgery.

Some patients who receive large-volume liposuction also choose to undergo a plus-size tummy tuck or hourglass tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty. Drs. Singh and Abboushi will discuss your options during your consultation.

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.

Cost of Liposuction

Liposuction is usually priced per area based on size, although procedures like lipo 360, also known as circumferential liposuction, may be priced together. Liposuction costs vary depending on the size of the area being treated and the volume of fat being removed. Small areas of standard liposuction start at $2,500, with extra large areas beginning at about $6,500.

High-BMI liposuction has a similar cost scale but generally starts at a higher price as more fat must be removed, even if the area appears small, such as the inner knee.

Lipo 360 surgery usually combines the upper and lower abdomen, waist, back, and flanks, which may be as many as seven areas in total. However, as this surgery is usually performed simultaneously, the final price can be less than the total if completed separately. Please note that these plastic surgery costs are starting points and do not include hospital fees, which can run between $2,000-$3,500.
