Some patients tell us that no matter how much they diet and exercise, they can’t get rid of the “love handles” around their midsections and “saddlebag” thighs. They want their bodies to look as fit and youthful on the outside as they themselves feel on the inside.

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.

More than 11,000 patients agree:

Face and Body Plastic Surgery is different.

Over the years we’ve watched fad treatments and cosmetic crazes come and go. But when the fads have failed, the crazes died out, and people just want something that works…they turn to us.

Your Liposuction Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Izquierdo will discuss all your options based on his examination. Our goal is to contour and improve the silhouette of my patients.

Your Liposuction Procedure

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.

Liposuction Recovery

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.

Risks for this procedure are rare such as infection, asymmetry, rippling or lumpiness.
