Dr. Baker performs all his procedures in a fully accredited ambulatory surgery center. General or sedation anesthesia is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist in Miami. Dr. Baker places small incisions at the fat removal site. Fat can be removed from a number of areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, neck, back, and legs.
Dr. Baker then inserts a cannula (thin, hollow tube) through the incisions and uses a back-and-forth motion to loosen the fat. The loosened fat tissue is then suctioned out through the tube. Dr. Baker’s experience working with liposuction allows him to remove fat evenly for natural-looking results. He then closes your incisions and applies a compression garment.
Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction
Almost anyone can benefit from liposuction. However, it is not a weight-loss procedure, and patients should be near their goal weight. People with poor skin elasticity may require a body lift procedure, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift to remove excess skin after their liposuction procedure. Dr. Baker will advise you during your consultation about whether an additional procedure would be beneficial for achieving the results you desire.
Congenital cellulite that is present at a young age may be slightly improved with liposuction. However, cellulite caused by weight gain and aging is often not improved using liposuction.
Yes, Dr. Baker utilizes power-assisted liposuction in certain areas that are more fibrous, such as the hips, back, and chest.
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat removal treatment that freezes fat, and your body then metabolizes and eliminates the damaged fat cells. However, CoolSculpting® does not provide the same detailed results of liposuction and can ultimately be more costly when repeat treatments are necessary to achieve acceptable results.
While liposuction permanently removes fat, it does not prevent new fat deposits from forming. Living a healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise can help you maintain your liposuction results.
