Liposuction, Laser Lipo, Smart Lipo

What is liposuction?

Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. It is sometimes/commonly referred to as "lipo" by many patients. Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as tummy tuck and fat transfer to buttocks/face/breast, as well.

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be the right procedure for you.

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the areas noted below.  

All the concerns will be discussed and addressed during your complimentary consultation with Dr. Malik at either of the offices of Mullica Hill Skincare – Dr. Malik’s Cosmetic Center. Call for your appointment today.

What Liposuction cannot do for you...

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite - the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks - or loose saggy skin. There are different treatments for these conditions that can be discussed during the complementary consultation.

Who is an Ideal Liposuction Candidate?

Ideal liposuction candidates are:

  • Adults within 30% to 35% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers- as smoking significantly delays the healing process
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits - located anywhere on your body - that don't respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.

How the Liposuction procedure is performed

The liposuction procedure includes three steps. First of all, medications are administered for your comfort during the procedure. The local anesthesia is given along with oral sedation. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you at the time of your complimentary consultation.

After the adequate anesthesia has been ascertained, the second part of the procedure is started. Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions placed strategically to minimize and visible scars etc.

First, diluted local anesthesia, also known as Tumescent Fluid, is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a controlled surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

Risks to be aware of when a liposuction is done

The decision to have cosmetic surgery is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of liposuction are acceptable.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your cosmetic surgeon.

Secondary procedures may sometimes be recommended to reduce excess skin. Special considerations are needed when large amounts - usually more than four to five liters of fat - are suctioned. Also, sometimes the procedure may need to be done as two separate procedures to minimize some risks of large volume fat removal. All these will be discussed personally during your complimentary consultation by Dr. Malik at any of the offices of Malik Medical Aesthetics.
