Body sculpture by liposuction is literally a dream come true. Localized accumulations of fat, which are often inherited and frequently prove impossible to eliminate by exercise or dieting, can now be removed permanently by liposuction surgery, never to plague you again! Virtually no blood loss, no risks of general anesthesia, safe, less painful, decreased risk of infection, better and smoother results, decreased bruising and quick return to normal activities. Price range varies from $2500-$5500 depending on area, frame size and amount of treatment needed.
What is Liposuction?
The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat from fatty deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposuction involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula. The cannula is connected to a very powerful suction pump and inserted through small skin incisions. The removal of fat is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse resulting in an improved body contour. Dr. Morris has elected to perform all Liposuction procedures with only micro-cannulas, further increasing safety and bringing smoother results.
Areas treated by Liposuction?
The most frequently treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles and beneath the chin. In men, who comprise about 25% to 30% of our patients, the most commonly treated areas include the love handles, the abdomen, breasts and the neck and chin area.
Who is a good candidate?
The best candidates for Liposuction are in good health and have realistic expectations of liposuction. There is no definite age limit, or weight limit for patients who are “good candidates” for liposuction. Most of our patients have localized accumulations of fat. However, some of our happiest patients have been individuals who are somewhat obese. It is important to emphasize that liposuction is not a treatment for general obesity.
