Liposuction or (Lipo) procedures are performed at our doctors at Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists. Liposuction plastic surgery is typically performed when certain areas of the body do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction permanently and painlessly removes the areas of fat that are resistant to these efforts. Liposuction results in a smoother, tighter appearance in these trouble spots.
Our plastic surgeons have perfected their Liposuction techniques by performing thousands of procedures for Columbus area patients. Liposuction is performed by inserting a tiny cannula under the skin. Lasers “melt” the fat which is then suctioned (Lipo) away. A tight compression garment is usually worn for several weeks after the procedure.
The most common areas that central Ohio patients request Liposuction are the stomach, hips and thighs. The buttocks, knees, breast, chin, neck, are also frequently requested areas for Lipo. Some patients are also interested in areas such as the calves and ankles or the back and arms which can also be sculpted with our Liposuction techniques. Most of our patients are back to work in just a couple of days.
