Liposuction is a surgical procedure for both men and women that can contour the arms, neck, back, waistline, thighs, calves, ankles, and more.
Areas of local fat excesses can be addressed and improve the silhouette of most patients. Liposuction is also used in conjunction with other procedures such as face lift, tummy tuck and thigh lift. Liposuction is not a replacement for regular diet and exercise. You will not lose any appreciable weight with this surgical procedure.

From start to finish the entire experience couldn’t have been easier. Consultations were never rushed. All aspects of surgery were discussed and I felt completely at ease with my decision. Two months after surgery and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew the minute I walked out of his office I would be using Dr. Izquierdo. I had met with 5 other doctors for the same surgery and he met all expectations start to finish.
Having surgery of any kind is scary, but Dr. Izquierdo is very comforting and reassuring making this very first elective experience easier.
Liposuction uses a small tube (cannula) inserted through small hidden incisions to remove the excess fat in the affected areas. The procedure is performed in a sterile operating room under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the number of areas to be treated and the volume to be removed. Local anesthesia can also be used for limited areas.
Other types of liposuction include ultrasonic liposuction, VASER assisted liposuction, and Laser assisted liposuction among the many variations. These next generation procedures use a source of energy to help melt the fat and stimulate the skin to contract as the first phase. Traditional liposuction is then used to aspirate the residual fat during the second phase of the procedure.
Dr.Izquierdo will review your options and which procedure or combination is best suited for your problem areas.
"Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!"
You will wear compression garments over the areas treated for several weeks. You will slowly be allowed to increase activities. Visible changes slowly appear beginning in the first or second week. However, final results may take three or four months to complete, and sometimes up to six months.
