Liposuction, also known as “lipoplasty,” is a surgical procedure that eliminates excess fat from areas of the body that are difficult to target with diet and exercise. This procedure restores a more slender, attractive physique.
Abdomen and Waist
The midsection is one of the most difficult areas to rid of stubborn fat. Liposuction produces a slimmer waistline and flatter abdomen by eliminating this resistant fat for good.
Back and Flanks
Many men have extra fat on their backs and sides just above their waists, and women commonly have unnecessary fat along their bra line. Liposuction can reduce this fat to achieve a smooth back and eliminate stubborn “love handles.”

Q. Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
A. Ideal candidates for liposuction are close to their ideal weight with stubborn areas of fat that have been difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise. Liposuction candidates are in good overall health and do not have any pre-existing health conditions. It is important to have realistic expectations of the procedure and to understand that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure.
Q. Will liposuction improve the appearance of cellulite?
A. Although liposuction removes excess fat and usually provides the skin with a smoother appearance, it is not considered a viable treatment for cellulite.
Q. How long will the results of liposuction last?
A. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells. However, the remaining fat cells in the treated area(s) can still increase in size with weight gain. Therefore, maintaining a stable weight by following a healthy diet and exercise regimen will preserve the results.
Q. How much does liposuction cost?
A. The total cost of liposuction depends on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed.
Q. Is liposuction covered by health insurance?
A. Health insurance providers do not typically cover the cost of liposuction because it is considered a cosmetic procedure.
