Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes localized fat deposits to sculpt and reshape the body’s contours. It can be very useful to treat fatty tissue under the chin, around the waist and hips.

Our Preferences:

We always use the S.A.F.E. technique with tumescence for liposuction for improved contour, minimizing bleeding and discomfort. Liposuction can be combined with a skin tightening procedure to maximize the aesthetic outcomes.
