Liposuction, also known as fat suction, suction lipectomy, tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted Lipoplasty or power assisted liposuction, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the face, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs; and the knees, calves and ankles.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn't respond to dieting and exercise. Liposuction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. 

Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them us. The best candidates for liposuction are of relatively normal weight but have pockets of excess fat in particular areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations. 

Most important, having firm, elastic skin will result in a better final contour. (Hanging skin won't reshape to your body's new contours, and may require an additional procedure to surgically remove the excess skin.) 

Suction lipectomy is not recommended if you've had recent surgery on the spot to be sculpted, if you have poor blood circulation in that area, or if you have heart or lung disease. You should also understand that liposuction by itself will not improve the dimpling skin know as cellulite. 

Consider the use of Endermologie for this concern. You may contact our About Face Botuique for an Endermologie consultation. 

Scars from liposuction are small and strategically placed to be hidden from view, even in a bikini. However, other cosmetic problems may occur. They may include rippling or bagginess of the skin over the treated area, and pigmentation changes that may become permanent if exposed to the sun. Asymmetry (uneven contour or shape) sometimes requires a second procedure. 

Suction-assisted Lipectomy is a highly effective technique for giving you a new body contour with very little scarring. The results can be permanent, providing you eat sensibly and exercise regularly. If you do gain weight, you'll probably gain it more uniformly throughout your body, not just in the former bulges.

Restylane before and after pictures

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).


Restylane is also FDA approved for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years, and is uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition. Learn more about Restylane for lip enhancement.

Call today to book your free consultation and meet with our board certified plastic surgeons to see which product is right for you.

About Restylane and Perlane

In a clinical study treating the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (laugh lines), Restylane continued to provide improvement for up to 18 months after initial treatment, when each line received a follow-up treatment at 4.5 or nine months.

How does Restylane work?
Restylane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane can also add fullness and definition to lips in patients over 21 years, providing natural-looking and lasting results with just one treatment.


Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid. So, you can use Restylane to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and to add fullness to your lips.

Treatment volume should be limited to 6.0 mL in wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and limited to 1.5 mL per lip (Restylane only), as greater amounts significantly increase moderate and severe injection site reactions. If a volume of more than 3 mL total is needed to achieve optimal correction for lip enhancement, a follow-up treatment session is recommended. Biocompatible with the human body, Restylane is eventually broken down naturally.

How does Perlane work?

Just like Restylane, Perlane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add volume like your body's own hyaluronic acid.

You can have beautiful full lips. There are many options when it comes to lip augmentation.

 

Injectables and fat grafting can make your lips look and feel fuller.

 

Insertion of a soft silicone tube can be a more permanent solution for plumper lips.

With hyaluronic acid injectables like Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane we can add volume and fullness to limp lips. 


Hyaluronic acid is moldable, making it one of the most popular lip augmentation procedures. Your own fat can be used to augment thin lips. Fat is first removed with a small needle or cannula (liposuction) from a fatty area like the buttocks. The fat is then transferred to the lips and reinjected using a local anesthesia or sedation technique.


Fat injections last longer than hyaluronic acid injections, the lips are in constant motion, so fat that's been injected is partially reabsorbed by the body. Since fat is your tissue and cannot be rejected, nor can you be allergic to it.
 

Facial Implant by SurgiSil: This implant can be placed into the upper and lower lips for a more permanent lip enhancement. This is a patented, FDA approved device that has undergone extensive clinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy. 

 
Perma Facial implant is made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer using an injection molding process to produce a naturally contoured implant with a smooth, non-porous surface that cannot rupture or deflate. Although permanent,Perma Facial Implant may be easily removed at any time.

 

The procedure can be performed in a simple office setting under local anesthesia. The entire process can take less than thirty minutes and normal activity may be resumed the following day. Perma Facial Implants are available in a variety of sizes to achieve customized results.
