Liposuction is the most proven and effective medical procedure to immediately remove unwanted fat.  Man and women of nearly all ages can be candidates for liposuction.  Appropriate candidates for liposuction must be in good health and should be near ideal body weight. 

Liposuction is not a weight reduction procedure, so those with many extra pounds should pursue diet and exercise as a first approach.  All of our liposuctions is performed the Body-Jet liposuction system.  The Body-Jet liposuction machine provides a very gentle and safe approach to liposuction.  With this gentle approach, patients generally have less discomfort during and after surgery and less down time after surgery. 

Breast and Body Augmentation with Body Jet Fat

For those women who have said for years: “If only I could take some fat from my tummy or thighs and put it in my breasts." Now it is possible!
 
The Body-Jet is a unique tool for fat transfer surgery.  Since the Body-Jet suction technique is so gentle, the fat cells are nicely preserved and are excellent for enhancing other areas of the body.  The fat cells are simply suctioned away, filtered, placed in syringes and meticulously injected into the desired area for augmentation. This introduces exciting possibilities for enhancing the breasts, buttocks and face with your own tissue.

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

We often perform liposuction in concert with other body-contouring procedures.  Liposuction is often used during abdominoplasty surgery to sculpt the immediate surrounding areas, including the flanks.  In addition, some patients who undergo a tummy tuck wish to have their thighs and/or arms sculpted with liposuction during the same surgery.

Liposuction and Breast Reduction Surgery

Liposuction is often used by Dr. Connall as an added procedure during breast reduction surgery.  Sometimes during a breast reduction some extra fat is removed directly from the breast with liposuction.  Also, liposuction can be used to contour the size of the breast and the size of the chest during breast reduction surgery. 

In addition, liposuction of other areas such as the abdomen can be combined with aesthetic breast surgery such as breast augmentation, breast lifts, and breast reduction surgery.

Liposuction and Facial Rejuvenation Surgery

Face rejuvenation, such as a face lift or chin augmentation are often enhanced with the use of liposuction.  Liposuction of the under chin and neck area is a common procedure for neck sculpting.
