Liposuction is a surgical technique used to remove excess fat located between the skin and muscle. Localized accumulations of fat, which are often hereditary and resistant to diet and exercise, can now be permanently removed via this procedure. Areas we perform liposuction on include abdomen, breasts, back, arms, thighs, chin, and more depending on the circumstances.
Liposuction involves inserting a small stainless steel tube through tiny skin incisions and connecting it to a suction pump. The pump assists the doctor in removing the fat by creating tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse resulting in an improved body contour.
At Acadia Women’s Health we have our very own accredited operating rooms and short-term patient recovery rooms. This provides our patients with the convenience of going through their entire surgical lifecycle, consult to final post-op check-ups, here at our clinic.
We use Tumescent anesthesia during these procedures. It is a form of local anesthesia, which has proved beneficial at minimizing patient recovery and making the procedure more affordable. We use it to perform breast augmentations and mini tummy tucks as well. We believe that performing liposuction with a local Tumescent Anesthesia:
Is the safest way to remove large amounts of fat with minimal blood loss
Dr. John Gonzalez and Dr. Michelle Owens have over 50 years of combined experience performing cosmetic surgery. Liposuction procedures are all done in our accredited surgical suites at Acadia Women's Health.
Liposuction vs Tummy Tuck
"It took many years to get the nerve to get liposuction. So glad I did! My self-esteem is so much better. The staff at the facility were so warm and inviting. Dr. Gonzalez is a doctor who explains the procedure thoroughly and listens to his patient. Again, thank you for making this transformation a stress-free experience for me. I will be back."
