Liposuction Can Correct:

Face and Neck

Excess fat in the face and neck can blur the natural contours of your face. Liposuction may be performed on the jowls and neck to remove bothersome fat deposits, revealing a sleek and sculpted jawline.

Abdomen Area

Localized fat in the abdomen may damage your self-confidence. Liposuction can target various parts of the abdomen including the waist, stomach, and hips. By trimming away stubborn fat from your midsection, you can obtain a slimmer and smoother waistline.

Lower Body

Unwanted fat in the lower body can create overall disproportion and make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly. Liposuction can treat undesirable fat in your knees, buttocks, inner thighs, and outer thighs. With liposuction, you can achieve the pleasing, balanced silhouette you desire.

Liposuction Options

Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand offer expert liposuction at his state-of-the-art Careaga Plastic Surgery located in the heart of Miami, Florida. At your personal consultation, your surgeon can help you determine if you are a candidate for liposuction and which of the following techniques will bring you the best results.

Typically Combined Procedures

In addition to liposuction, various procedures are often included in a patient’s procedure plan to achieve their desired results. The most common body contouring procedures to combine with liposuction are listed below. Your personal preferences and goals, as well as your doctor’s recommendations, will determine which methods are recommended to achieve your desired outcome.

Liposuction and Emsculpt®

Emsculpt® utilizes electromagnetic energy to tighten and lift muscles in the abdomen and buttocks. The energy causes the muscles to contract supra-maximally (at a greater strength than is possible with traditional exercises). When combined with liposuction, Emsculpt® can help patients achieve better muscle definition and more sculpted body contours.

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Liposuction is often used during a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). Tummy tuck surgery is designed to redefine the abdominal region and remove excess skin around the torso. Abdominoplasty is especially useful for patients with loose, hanging skin around their midsection. After gently removing fat from the stomach using liposuction, the stomach muscles are tightened and firmed to the desired contour. The skin is pulled taut, and any excess is removed to provide a smoother, tighter abdomen. Liposuction alone removes excess fat from the target areas, but cannot address loose skin in the way that a tummy tuck is able to.

Liposuction and Renuvion formerly known as J-Plasma®

Renuvion formerly known as J-Plasma® utilizes a combination of radiofrequency with helium plasma to tighten skin and reduce fine lines through tiny incisions on the face, neck, or body. This approach is an excellent alternative to laser techniques that use heat, as the cold plasma used for Renuvion formerly known as J-Plasma® treatment minimizes tissue damage and promotes cellular regeneration, allowing for better results and an easier recovery. This minimally invasive procedure is perfect for delicate areas such as around the eyes or lips.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Liposuction can be combined with a variety of cosmetic procedures, including tummy tuck, Brazilian Butt Lift, breast reduction, and gynecomastia surgery. During your liposuction consultation, Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand can advise you on the benefits of combining procedures to maximize your desired results.

  • Liposuction is an outpatient procedure. The length of the procedure depends on the size and location of the treatment area as well as the amount of fat being removed. Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand can provide you with an accurate estimate of the anticipated length of the procedure during your liposuction consultation.

  • Although most patients lose a couple of pounds during fat removal, weight stays close to normal after surgery. Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle; it is only meant to remove stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Liposuction is a body contouring surgery and should not be viewed as a weight loss procedure.

  • As with any surgery, the risks of liposuction include:

    • Anesthesia reaction
    • Bruising
    • Swelling
    • Infection
    • Unsatisfying results
  • The fat cells removed during liposuction do not grow back, but moderate to significant weight gain will change your overall shape. It is recommended to lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain your liposuction results.
