Despite maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle, many patients find that stubborn pockets of fat prevent them from achieving the body contour and tone they desire. Fortunately, patients can take advantage of a lasting solution: liposuction in Las Vegas with Dr. Engineer at Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is most simply described as a technique to rid the body of stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to dieting or exercise. During the procedure, a small incision is made at the target area through which Dr. Engineer will thread a slender tube called a cannula. The fat is then suctioned out of the body through the tube and either discarded or preserved for a future fat transfer procedure.

Liposuction may be performed on its own or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or mommy makeover. At your initial comprehensive consultation at Las Vegas-based Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, Dr. Engineer will take the time to understand your ideal objectives and work diligently to develop the best possible surgical plan for you.

Liposuction may be employed to remove fat from areas all over the body. Commonly targeted areas for liposuction include:

  • Belly
  • Back or trunk
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Ankles
  • Thighs
  • Chest
  • Cheeks or chin

What are the different types of liposuction?

Depending upon your unique shape and contour goals, Dr. Engineer may employ different liposuction techniques. Some of these may include:

  • Tumescent liposuction
  • Laser-assisted liposuction/Smart Lipo
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Tumescent liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is performed by injecting a special solution made of lidocaine and epinephrine that helps break down the fat and make it easier for removal.

Laser-assisted liposuction/Smart Lipo

Here, laser energy is employed to emulsify the fat prior to removal. With laser assistance, liposuction results in less bruising and less downtime for the patients. In addition, Smart Lipo provides skin tightening benefits due to increased collagen production over time.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Ultrasound energy is used during this type of liposuction to gently liquefy the patient's fat deposits so they are easier to extract with the cannula. This form of lipo is especially effective for hard-to-reach areas such as the knees, ankles, neck, and chin.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

  • Sculpts and contours areas of the body that don’t respond to dieting or exercise
  • Helps remove stubborn fat after pregnancy
  • Combats the signs of aging
  • Increases wardrobe options
  • Maximizes self-confidence
  • Can be well-combined with other surgical procedures

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is an excellent option for those who are frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to changes in diet or exercise. Good candidates for the procedure are healthy non-smokers who have a realistic and positive outlook towards their surgery.

It's important to note that liposuction is not a long-term weight loss solution and is best suited to those who are at or close to their ideal weight. Although fat cells in the targeted areas are ultimately removed, you can still gain weight in other parts of the body, and maintaining your healthy lifestyle is an important part of preserving your results.

Liposuction is not an effective treatment for the appearance of cellulite or loose, wrinkled skin. However, you may decide with Dr. Engineer to combine your liposuction with other treatments or procedures to best attain your ideal goals.

What happens during recovery?

Most clients can resume their regular activities within about a week after liposuction. Dr. Engineer will ensure you receive prescriptions for pain medications, a detailed aftercare plan, and the proper compression garments to help reduce swelling.

What can I expect from my results?

The full results of liposuction in Las Vegas will not be revealed until you have completely recovered. However, your leaner shape in the targeted areas may be immediately apparent. In order to attain your best results, all aftercare instructions must be strictly followed.

How much does liposuction cost?

Liposuction costs vary based on the number of areas treated and on whether any additional procedures are performed at the same time. Costs generally range from $3,500 to as high as $12,000. We will provide you with a detailed, personalized quote when you come in for your private consultation.

Liposuction FAQs

What happens if I gain weight after liposuction?

After liposuction, your body will appear more shapely and sculpted. If you do gain weight, you will retain your new proportions, but it may be more difficult to appreciate the definition that liposuction has provided.

What kind of scarring will I experience after liposuction?

Dr. Engineer will do everything possible to minimize scarring after liposuction. The scars at the incision sites are small and will fade over time. Take care to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, which can worsen discoloration.

Can liposuction be combined with other procedures?

Yes, absolutely. Dr. Engineer often combines liposuction with abdominoplasty, a mommy makeover, a thigh lift, an arm lift, and more. It is a versatile procedure that can address fat deposits anywhere in the body.
