Achieve a Sculpted Physique with Liposuction

Sometimes, no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, certain areas of stubborn fat refuse to respond to your efforts. Our liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique for removing excess fat from under the skin through suction. It is designed to slim and sculpt areas of excess fat to create a sleeker, more sculpted physique. If you're looking for some of the best liposuction results in Utah, contact Brzowski Plastic Surgery today.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure indicated for the removal of stubborn fat deposits. The preferred areas for treatment are those that are resistant to diet and exercise. This technique has been a popular means of treating these unwanted fat deposits since around 1980. It has remained the most popular plastic surgical procedure nearly every year of the past decade.

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

Our Salt Lake City liposuction is a poor option for patients who are significantly overweight. A stable weight is important. The best candidates have good skin tone, as those with poor tone can end up with irregularities and loose skin.

Areas commonly treated with liposuction

These areas are often treated in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast augmentation, arm lift, tummy tuck, body lift, or thigh lift.

  • Abdomen Hips (Love Handles in Men)
  • Outer Thighs
  • Inner Thighs
  • Knees
  • Arms
  • Upper Back
  • Jowls
  • Neck

Surgical risks of liposuction

Significant complications with body sculpting are rare. Although terrible problems such as perforation of abdominal organs and deep structures have occurred, along with deaths and other serious injury, serious medical complications are infrequent with liposuction.

The most common complications are unevenness and contour irregularities. Sometimes additional surgery for correction may be advised. These complications, though infrequent, may result in additional expense to you.

As with any operation, there are risks of bleeding, poor healing, infection, dissatisfaction with the results, and complications from the anesthetic, such as blood clots, etc.

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost for liposuction will depend on the areas of the body targeted and on whether liposuction is performed in tandem with any other surgical procedures, such as breast reduction or abdominoplasty. Fees typically range from $4,500 to $8,000 and include surgeon fees, facility fees, and postoperative garment fees. We will make sure you leave your consultation with a detailed quote for services.

While insurance does not typically cover elective procedures, we can set you up with some excellent financing options and payment plans so you can get started right away on your body contouring goals. Costs should not prohibit you from pursuing body contouring with the surgeon you feel most capable and experienced; you need to feel confident and secure in your appearance.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

Our liposuction in Salt Lake City can improve a person’s appearance by creating a more natural-looking distribution of body fat. This body sculpting procedure removes fat cells to enhance and sculpt the body, with benefits that are generally long-lasting for patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Procedure Liposuction FAQ's

How do I know if I need liposuction or a tummy tuck?

For patients with excess fat in the subcutaneous layer (above the muscle layer) but minimal skin excess, liposuction alone may be an excellent choice for body contouring. These clients typically have good skin elasticity, but they struggle with stubborn fat pockets that don�t respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction can be performed on the hips, waist, inner and outer thighs, belly, and lower back with minimal scarring. Women who have previously been pregnant often suffer from a stretched-out abdominal wall with separated six-pack muscles, along with stubborn fat and excess skin in the midsection. These clients usually fare best by undergoing abdominoplasty combined with liposuction.

Is liposuction treatment for obesity?

No. Liposuction is an effective and safe fat loss method, but it does not result in significant weight loss. Removing 3-5 liters of fat during liposuction will not affect how heavy you are but will rather result in a more shapely body contour and a better fit in clothing. Liposuction is an ideal solution for combating stubborn body fat that won�t respond to dieting or exercise.

What should I expect after treatment?

A helper must drive you home from surgery and stay with you the rest of the day. You will have access to pain medications, should you require them. Most patients tend to return to work within several days, resuming exercise after 3-7 days. Your return to the office for a follow-up visit to ensure your healing progresses smoothly will be scheduled in advance of your procedure.

Can liposuction be combined with other procedures?

Yes! Liposuction is frequently partnered with various facial and body contouring solutions, including breast surgery, abdominoplasty, a neck lift, and more. Ask your doctor how liposuction can be used to enhance your surgical outcomes for a more youthful and streamlined physique.

Does liposuction treat cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when the fibrotic bands connecting the surface skin with the underlying muscles begin to weaken structurally, allowing fat to peek through in a mesh-like pattern resembling cottage cheese. Liposuction is not an ideal solution for treating cellulite, but it can help improve your overall body contours. Dr. Brzowski offers several non-invasive options for ridding the body of cellulite, including QWO, Cellfina and others.
