What Areas Can Liposuction Treat?

Liposuction is among the most powerful and effective body contouring methods available today. It can sculpt and tone your figure while boosting your self confidence and quality of life. In conjunction with good diet and exercise regimens, liposuction can help you look and feel your very best.

  • Abdomen and waist
  • Buttocks and hips
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Chest area
  • Upper arms
  • Inner knee
  • Calves and ankles
  • Cheeks, chin and neck

While Liposuction can improve the appearance of many parts of the body, it’s important to note that the procedure is not weight loss surgery or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is also not an effective cellulite treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Zinsser, he will work to understand your aesthetic goals and recommend the procedure or treatment that can best achieve your desired outcome.

Your Liposuction Options

As with all of the procedures performed at Zinsser Plastic Surgery, the method or technique performed in your surgery will be fully customized for you, depending on your unique goals, the area you want to have treated and other factors. Dr. Zinsser offers the following liposuction options:

  • Tumescent liposuction: With the tumescent liposuction technique, Dr. Zinsser uses a cannula to suction out targeted deposits of fat. During the process, tumescent fluid is injected into the fatty tissue, breaking it up and making it easier to remove.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): With this liposuction technique, an ultrasound probe is inserted into the fat after the tumescent solution has infused the area. Heat generated by the ultrasound helps to break down the fat between the fibers beneath the skin. Once the ultrasound process is complete, fat is removed through a cannula.

During your initial lipo consult, Dr. Zinsser will assess your physical condition, discuss your goals and recommend the liposuction technique best suited for you.

Am I a Good Lipo Candidate?

  • Are bothered by excess fat deposits
  • Are in generally good health
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations
