Body contouring with liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring technique; it is not about weight loss. In fact, most patients do not lose a significant quantity of weight with liposuction. The benefit is your clothes will fit better, as the contour of your waist to your hips to your buttocks or other body area will be more attractive, and in proportion.


What are the types of liposuction?

Dr. Robert Whitfield offers his patients the full range of liposuction options:

  • Traditional liposuction
  • Power assisted liposuction
  • Ultrasound assisted liposuction
  • Laser assisted liposuction

Each option removes fat, yet each performs differently, and is appropriate for certain body areas and quantities of fat. The right type of lipo for you is going to depend on your anatomy, amount of excess fat, and the areas to be sculpted.

Body contouring with liposuction

Body contouring with liposuction under local anesthesia can be great for smaller, isolated areas of fat, such as the love handles or bra line. For patients who are want to re-contour the entire torso, Dr. Whitfield prefers to perform the procedure under general anesthesia. Only with this control will it be possible to beautifully re-sculpt the waist, abdomen, and flanks.

Added procedures for superior results with liposuction

While liposuction can be effective alone, Dr. Whitfield may also combine it with another body contouring procedure such as BodyTite™, a new radio frequency-assisted lipolysis technique designed to improve skin tightening. In addition, the procedure is often done as part of a mommy makeover or in conjunction with a tummy tuck.

What is recovery from liposuction?

Recovery depends on the patient, the area treated, and the technique used. While most patients can return their usual activities in just a few days, expect to be bruised and sore for several weeks.

You will need to wear a compression garment 24/7 for at least a month. In general, most patients will be back to full physical exercise in four to six weeks – with a more elegant figure, free from excess fat.
