Liposuction with micro body sculpting and contouring is a versatile fat reduction treatment that can be used to produce a slimmer, more toned appearance.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, sometimes simply referred to as ‘lipo’, is a surgical fat reduction technique that vacuums unwanted fat out of the body to produce a more contoured figure. It can be used on nearly any area of the body, enabling patients to eliminate stubborn fat in many problem areas. We commonly perform liposuction to address fat in the arms, abdomen, back, hips, flanks, thighs, and knees. We also offer calf liposuction and liposuction for treating a double chin. At Newport Plastic Surgery, Dr. Go specializes in advanced micro body sculpting and contouring techniques utilizing both power-assisted liposuction and traditional liposuction methods in order to achieve the best outcomes.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

The cost of liposuction can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture with micro body sculpting and contouring is an advanced liposuction technique that involves strategically removing fat from key areas to enhance muscle definition in the treatment regions. Instead of evenly removing fat, the fat is removed from specific areas to enhance the contours of the body. This technique can be used on various spots around the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, or under the chin.

What is Abdominal Etching?

Abdominal etching is a form of liposculpture with micro body sculpting and contouring, during which we strategically remove fat around the abdominal muscles. With this technique, we can enhance the definition of the abdominal muscles for a sculpted appearance.

How is Liposuction Performed?

The liposuction procedure with micro body sculpting and contouring is performed using small access incisions, which can be easily hidden in the natural contours of the body. Through these small incisions, a thin, smooth cannula will be inserted. Tumescent fluid mixed with anesthetic will be first placed throughout the treatment site.  Next, a vacuum system will remove fat through the thin cannula, eliminating it from the body. Meticulous micro body sculpting and contouring liposuction technique will be performed with Dr. Go’s expertise.  The liposuctioned fat can be purified and used as a natural fat graft with stem cells for other areas of the body if requested by the patient.  Once the desired results are achieved, a compression garment will be applied and the treatment will be complete.

What is the Recovery Like After Liposuction?

After liposuction with micro body sculpting and contouring, patients can expect mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the treatment area. These symptoms can last for a few weeks, but most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities in about one week. It is recommended for patients to wait about 3-4 weeks before resuming exercise and other strenuous activities.
