Liposuction can help sculpt your body, restore a more shapely form, and improve your fit in clothes by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, such the abdomen, love handles, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck.
As we age, our metabolism changes, our body fat is redistributed, and stubborn fat pockets form that don’t shrink with exercise. Liposuction is a safe and effective method that can reshape your body, and restore a healthier appearance that can match your inner health. In select patients, it can even be done as an office procedure.
We perform tumescent liposuction using the patented fat removal technology VASER LipoSelection®. This technique is not only safer than the previously used fat-removal methods, it offers a faster recovery time, is less painful, and can produce exceptional results.
VASER LipoSelection® uses an ultrasonic technology that is tissue-selective. The ultrasound energy targets unwanted fat, but preserves other surrounding tissues—such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue— to promote smooth contours and rapid healing.
While sometimes liposuction alone is enough to produce the results you want, often a tummy tuck is helpful in tightening loose abdominal muscles and skin. Dr. McGovern will discuss the details of liposuction plastic surgery during your consultation.
