What is it Liposuction?

Liposuction is the surgical removal of pockets of fat from troublesome areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, flanks, buttocks, arms, and breasts. An effective tool in body contouring that is beneficial for the patient’s overall health, it is often used in conjunction with other plastic surgery techniques. Liposuction can help both men and women reach their cosmetic goals by treating areas that are typically resistant to diet and exercise.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

As a common, minimally invasive procedure, liposuction is typically suitable for most candidates who have tried other preferred methods of weight loss and still have fat deposits that have not responded to these efforts. In certain situations, it can also be a less invasive option to accomplish such things as breast reduction or body contouring.

To find out if you are a liposuction candidate, contact us to arrange an evaluation.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Prior to your surgery, Dr. Kjar will give you specific preoperative guidelines. Carefully follow these instructions. The procedure is typically short and done on an outpatient basis but may vary depending on what area or areas you are having liposuction done on. Our preferred method of liposuction surgery is VASER LipoSelection®, which combines the very latest in ultrasound technology with advanced surgical techniques to break up and remove fatty tissue without damaging surrounding tissue such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

Your liposuction procedure will include a consultation and services from Candessa Aesthetics at no extra cost, which will also help to improve your recovery.

Liposuction of the Abdomen

Liposuction of the abdomen is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery treatments available. Beneficial to both men and women, liposuction can easily remove abdominal fat located near the skin.

Liposuction of the Hips

Liposuction of the hips is an effective body contouring technique in which excess fat deposits are removed. Additional body contouring procedures may be required to achieve the desired appearance.

Liposuction of the Thighs

Liposuction of the thighs is generally performed in a series of surgeries spaced out over one-month intervals. One surgery encompassing the entire circumference of the thigh produces excessive swelling and a lengthened recovery time.

Liposuction of the Flanks

Liposuction of the flanks is a common plastic surgery option among men. The flanks are located just above the belt line on the sides and back. Salt Lake City, Utah-area residents interested in liposuction surgery can contact Dr. J. Gregory Kjar for more information.

Liposuction of the Buttocks

Liposuction of the buttocks is a way to reshape that area of the body, rather than simply removing fatty tissue. Liposuction can be used to create a symmetrical, smooth, and tight appearance.

Liposuction of the Arms

Liposuction of the arms creates a slimmer, more contoured look. Liposuction of the arms has a high rate of patient satisfaction. For more information, contact Dr. Kjar’s Salt Lake City, Utah-area plastic surgery office for a liposuction consultation.

Liposuction of the Breasts

Liposuction of the breasts is an effective and less invasive form of breast reduction. Large, heavy breasts can cause chronic neck and back pain. Liposuction can remove excess fat and have a natural lifting effect on the breast.
