Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure to shape and sculpt the body. Liposuction is an option for patients 18 years old and older. Patients younger than 18 years old typically are not able to undergo liposuction except in cases in which it is deemed medically necessary.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides liposuction to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
Liposuction is an effective treatment that can reduce pockets of unwanted fat from virtually anywhere on the body, including:
- The abdomen
- The waist, hips, and flanks
- Knees, thighs, and buttocks
- Back and arms
- Jawline and face
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure while the patient is under general anesthesia. During the procedure, a solution of saline and anesthetic is injected into the targeted treatment areas. The solution helps break up the fat, which is then suctioned out with a thin cannula.
In order to receive a plastic surgery treatment, you must be at least 18 years of age. During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate if you are both physically and emotionally prepared to undergo a liposuction operation. Before surgery, you must be:
- In good health
- A nonsmoker, or willing to quit
- Able to take appropriate time off work or school for recovery
- Able to follow post-op instructions to carry out your recovery
What to Expect from Liposuction
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that reduces targeted areas of fat and is not a weight loss solution. Make sure to talk about your desired outcomes from liposuction with your surgeon during your consultation to make sure you have realistic expectations. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides liposuction to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
