Liposuction is a great procedure to remove excess fat in problematic areas. The surgery is not intended as a weight reduction procedure but more as a re-contouring procedure. The best candidates are relatively young (<45) and must have good skin tone (elasticity). If a patient has loose skin and/or stretch marks, they may not have a very good result. The procedure is typically done under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with mild sedation and involves very minimal scarring. Patients will wear a garment for about 4-6 weeks after surgery. The final results from liposuction may take up to six months to be seen.
