Stubborn pockets of fat: Most of us have them, and most of us also have trouble getting rid of them.

Why women choose a Liposuction procedure

For women and men in Salt Lake City, liposuction can treat a number of areas of the body. Generally, our liposuction candidates:

  • Have localized deposits of fat despite dieting and exercise
  • Desire a more sculpted physique
  • Wish to improve their proportions
  • Can achieve their ideal body image through re-contouring

Our surgeon offers a variety of liposuction methods to treat a range of patients. They will perform traditional liposuction, PAL (power assisted liposuction), UAL (ultrasound assisted liposuction) or liposculpture, depending on the patient and the specific goals. When you come to him for a personal consultation, they will assess which method can best help you achieve your desires.

Liposuction FAQs

What can I expect at the initial consultation?

Before your procedure, our doctor will work with you to determine the appropriate liposuction method for you.

What happens during the procedure?

To begin, tiny incisions are created in the targeted area. Then, using either the traditional, power assisted, ultrasound assisted or liposculpture method, our doctor will remove the fat. By using very thin cannulas to remove the fat, our surgeon is able to achieve a smooth, sculpted look without excessive bruising and swelling. Once the fat is removed, your incision will be closed and you will be given a compression garment to wear to help maintain your new body shape.

Why can I expect after the procedure?

After your liposuction procedure, you can return home. Most patients only need about 4 days off before returning to work and resuming light activities. Most of our patients have a fairly straightforward recovery with minimal bruising and swelling. It is best to take about 4 weeks off from strenuous physical activity.

Can I get my existing tummy tuck revised?

If you are unhappy with a previous liposuction surgery our plastic surgeon at Trilogy Medical Center is happy to consult with you and offer options to revise and hopefully improve your results. The only way to know how we can help is to come in for a free consultation.

How does Liposuction work?

Image of before and after liposuction results
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring. At Trilogy we take a very unique and individualized approach to body contouring. Liposuction may be combined with one or more of our other Body Shop services such as Coolsculpting, Emsculpt and Profound Body to achieve optimal and lasting results. Come in and meet with our plastic surgeon and Body Shop specialists and let us formulate a plan just for you.
