Balance, proportion and contour are fundamental elements of an attractive human form. Using Liposuction, Dr. Bowen can sculpt a better shape to almost any area of the body, achieving dramatic improvements with subtle changes. Liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck but can also be performed independently. Liposuction removes excess deposits of fat to sculpt an improved shape to a patient’s body. It does not address loose or sagging skin. Liposuction is not a weight loss tool. You should be at your ideal body weight prior to having liposuction done. Both men and women undergo liposuction to achieve a variety of different goals.

Benefits of Liposuction:

  • Removal of fat deposits on the hips, belly, thighs, neck, or chest that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is excellent for reducing fatty bulges and sculpting a beautifully natural contour to the body
  • Proportion to your figure. Reducing excess fat on one area of the body can bring it into better balance with your natural features
  • Skin with good elasticity and tone will fit to the body’s new contours

Liposuction FAQs

Many patients are surprised to learn that the average amount of weight loss from liposuction is only about 5 pounds. Liposuction is not designed to be a weight loss procedure. It is designed to target a specific area of fat on the body and create a smoother body contour. The best candidates for liposuction are at or near their ideal weight but cannot seem to lose weight in a specific area despite all efforts with diet and exercise.

Loose, sagging skin can be the result of weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and/or aging. In some cases, once the underlying fat is removed, the overlaying skin will retract. However, for some patients, it can make sagging skin appear worse. During your consultation process with Dr. Diane Bowen, you will go through an assessment with her to determine the degree of elasticity for your skin and its likelihood to contract. For patients with excess or especially loose skin, the best treatment is to remove it with a tummy tuck.

Liposcution will sculpt the body into a more aesthetically pleasing contours, but it is not designed specifically to reduce the appearance of cellulite. During an in-depth consultation with Dr. Bowen you will discuss various treatment options in order to achieve desired outcome. Radio frequency skin tightening or Fractora, a treatment that combines microneedling with radio frequency, may be a better treatment option for cellulite.

With each treatment, hair is reduced, and best results are observed after four to six sessions. On average patients come in every 4-6 weeks for treatments. The number of sessions and hair removal success will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone. Typically, the darker, thicker, courser the hair the better the result tends to me.
