Am I a Candidate for Micro-Liposuction?
People who are content with their weight and appearance but want to shape or enhance stubborn areas can choose micro-liposuction. Micro-liposuction can be used to improve the overall appearance of the face, tighten up a sagging neck, and remove small amounts of fat from the hips, thighs, abdomen, and back.
The Micro-Liposuction Procedure
Your micro-liposuction operation is conducted under local anesthesia. The trouble area is injected with a local anesthetic, which causes it to go numb. Microcannulas are then used to extract the fat. The process takes less than an hour, and patients are able to return home afterward.
The Results After Micro-Liposuction
Immediately following the micro-liposuction surgery, you will notice a significant alteration in the contours of the treated regions. As the swelling goes down, contours will improve for another two to three weeks. The fat cells that were eliminated during the surgery will not come back.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What is Micro-Liposuction?
A. Micro-liposuction removes unwanted fat using a small, very precise cannula or suction. This treatment contours precise areas of the face and body. To remove microscopic amounts of fat, the surgeon employs a combination of tiny incisions and thin tubes called cannulas. The procedure targets fat that can’t be eliminated with diet or exercise.
Q. How is micro-liposuction different from traditional liposuction?
A. Micro-liposuction is used to remove up to 150 cc of fat per area. Traditional liposuction methods are recommended for larger surface areas. Micro-liposuction, as opposed to traditional liposuction, employs much smaller incision sites and less invasive fat-removal equipment to remove fat from specific regions.
Q. How many treatments are required?
A. Unlike popular non-invasive fat removal treatments and injections, Micro-liposuction permanently and immediately removes fat in one treatment.
Q. Is micro-liposuction expensive?
A. Pricing is determined by the number of “zones” that are treated. Fees include pre and post-procedure follow-up visits.
Q. How Long does the procedure take?
A. Most micro-liposuction procedures are performed within 45 minutes.
Q. Is the procedure painful?
A. During the procedure, patients are completely numbed with a local anesthetic. Some patients experience “soreness” for up to one day after the procedure.
Q. Is there visible scarring?
Q. How long is the recovery?
A. Patients can travel or return to work the next day. Some residual swelling and bruising can last up to 3 days.
Q. What are the side effects?
A. Side effects are minimal but can include bruising, swelling or temporary numbness. These side effects can last up to 7 days.
Q. How long do the results last?
A. The results are immediate and last over 10 years
