Benefits of Liposuction

Fat accumulations can cause unsightly bulges that may be ruining your smooth, attractive contours. Often, men and women complain of localized fat preventing clothing from fitting properly, which can cause feelings of self-consciousness. Liposuction eliminates this excess fat to better define the contours of your body and produce a slimmer, more toned appearance.

Liposuction Procedure

Dr. Baker performs all his procedures in a fully accredited ambulatory surgery center. General or sedation anesthesia is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. 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.


Liposuction for Body Contouring

  • Liposuction may be performed as a solo procedure for candidates with good skin elasticity or in combination with other body contouring procedures
  • Commonly combined procedures include the tummy tuck, thigh lift, and arm lift
  • Combining liposuction with other body contouring helps achieve more defined results

Liposuction for Fat Transfer

  • Fat transfer utilizes patient fat to increase the volume and improve the shape of other areas of the body, such as the breasts, buttocks, or face
  • Liposuction is used to harvest tissue for fat transfer
  • Liposuction for fat transfer takes longer than regular liposuction because gentler techniques are required to preserve the fat cells
Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

It is common to experience bruising, swelling, and redness following liposuction. You may experience some mild discomfort that can be controlled using an oral pain medication. You will wear a compression garment around the treatment area to minimize excess swelling, facilitate in healing, and improve your results. You should avoid strenuous physical activities for two to three weeks.

Most patients can return to non-physically demanding jobs within four days of their surgery. Major swelling should subside within three weeks, and minor swelling may last up to six weeks. You will wear the compression garment for up to four weeks to ensure proper skin contraction.
