What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

For individuals who struggle with stubborn weight that does not respond to diet and exercise, body contouring treatments can help enhance and sculpt the physique for a more shapely appearance. Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to remove unwanted fat in multiple regions of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, flanks, hips, and buttocks. While the treatment is not a weight loss solution, liposuction can typically create a more toned look and smoother contours. 
Board-certified plastic surgeon Andrew Cohen, MD recognizes how liposuction can help patients feel more confident in their appearance and comfortable in their day-to-day life. He’s experienced at performing the procedure and is dedicated to helping patients look and feel their best. Dr. Cohen understands how efficiently liposuction can refine the body and the benefits that the procedure offers to both men and women. 
Key benefits of liposuction include: 

  • Targeted fat reduction – Liposuction allows for the targeted removal of fat from common problem areas. This precision leads to noticeable improvements in body contour and proportion, often enhancing the silhouette and providing a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing body shape. 
  • Enhanced self-confidence – The physical transformations achieved through liposuction can significantly boost self-esteem and confidence. Many patients report feeling more comfortable in their skin, leading to a more positive self-image and increased willingness to participate in activities or wear certain types of clothing they previously avoided. 
  • Long-lasting results – When accompanied by a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle, the results of liposuction can be long-lasting. When fat cell removal is paired with proper maintenance, patients can enjoy their new contours for years to come. 
  • Minimal scarring – Liposuction is performed with small incisions that are only made near the treatment area(s), as opposed to the larger incision that’s typically more commonly associated with tummy tuck surgery. When possible, Dr. Cohen also takes great care to place incisions in areas that can be easily concealed. The smaller incisions often result in minimal scarring. 
  • Faster recovery time – Smaller incisions and technique advancements can result in a quicker healing process. Dr. Cohen notes that many patients return to their normal routines within one week of the procedure.
