Do you have excess fat in areas like your stomach and thighs? Are you self-conscious about your appearance? To help improve your self-image, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons may recommed liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure that is performed to sculpt the body by removing excess fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Liposuction, which is also known as lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, has had several new refinements over the last decade. These new techniques, which include power liposuction, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL), and the tumescent technique, help plastic surgeons provide patients with more precise results and quicker recovery times. If you have localized excess fat or if you desire contouring in one or more of the following areas, you may be a good candidate for liposuction:

  • Cheeks, jowls, and neck
  • Upper arms
  • Breast or chest areas
  • Back
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Inner knee
  • Calves and ankles

Liposuction can be performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures like a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck.
