Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures today. Areas of unsightly fat deposits, such as the face, the abdomen, lips, and thigh, but also the breasts and ankles, can be re-contoured by suctioning the undesired excess fat.

At Skin Experts Polyclinic, many cases of liposculpture are done entirely under local anesthesia (tumescent technique), eliminating the risks of full anesthesia, and more importantly, minimizing the discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Moreover, we use smaller instruments, often smaller than a pencil (advances brought into the field of liposuction by U.S. dermatologic surgeons) to refine the esthetic results.

Patients typically wear a garment for 5-7 days only, have almost no bruising or swelling the next day and resume normal activities in 48 hours, and exercise in 10 days. This is one of the most rewarding procedures in our practice with final results seen at 2-3 months.
